Well I’ve been working like a modelling Yogin to get this all ready ! The last few weeks has been busy-as to get this all crossing the line of departure … so much for planning staged releases. !
We have just released six new product items I trust you will be pretty happy with, and released another dozen pieces that will go into existing packs that will enhance these packs further.
A list of the new released products looks like ;
1. USMC M14 Rifle Platoon (41pcs),
2. USMC M14 ‘HQ’ Platoon (45pcs)
3. LVC/NLF Porters (10pcs)
4. Australian M113 with T50 turret (.30/.50 or .30/.30 options)
5. USMC LVTP5 APC
6. USMC LVTH6 Howitzer variant.
…But some of the details I’m the happiest about is some of the new and redone figures that will go into existing packs that I have felt were sorely needed. For example; two new US minesweeper figures, a prone US sniper team, Aussie M79 grenadiers with SLR’s, and a metal ‘load’ for the Mule (replacing the resin load) for starters. I’ve also been busy improving some of the heavy weapon sculpts we manufacture and resurrected some ‘missing’ figures from this range (eg; some old LVC sculpts that seem to have vanished). You will see these new items appear in existing packs real soon.
For those of you in North America, Carl at ‘Miniatures of Chesapeake’, and Mark at ‘ScaleCreep Miniatures’ have shipments on the way.
Big thanks to the team of people who made this happen, Chris the tireless spincaster, Nic Robson (Eureka Miniatures) the fastest, bestest mould maker ‘Down Under’, Matt Clark and crew (Reaper Miniatures) sculptors and mould-makers, Leandro Ventic the figure-sculptor, two other ‘prefer-to-remain-anonymous’ figure-sculptors, Darby Eckles (TX.USA) the 3D designer of the Amtracks and T50 turret, John at ‘Modeller’ (CA.USA) who printed the Amtrack masters, Phil and Sandy the ‘webguys’ who tirelessly defend the website against hackers and troublemakers, and most importantly my wife Tamara who is the crucial administrator behind the ‘business’ and looks after me as I sit in the ‘shed weighing, sorting, cleaning and packing thousands and thousands of metal figures, and pouring, curing and sanding kilograms of urethane resin and mould rubber.
! Time to sit at the painting desk for a few days ! ..Woohoo ! ….. Stay ‘tuned !
