Other miscellaneous items such as guns and carts are individually priced at their listing.

We were able to leave our prices remained unchanged for more than six and a half years, until, alas, February 2022, when significantly increased costs within the supply chain, most notably in respect of the raw materials used in the casting of your figures, forced our first price rise upon us. We all hope there won't be another one anytime soon. It will be obvious that in terms of cost per figure we never could compete with plastic and resin products and that it would be quite futile even to attempt to do so. Instead we set to serve those in the gaming community who prefer the heft and quality of traditional 28mm figures cast in white metal. In return for your investment in our products we carry out painstaking historical research in support of the design process, engage only the best sculptors, use a top quality casting firm to make our moulds and to strike our figures, and, finally, we retail through the medium of one of the most reputable distributors in the industry. 

 

Guiding Principle of Pricing. We charge multiples of £2.00 for both figures on foot and riders (without the horse). For horses we charge in multiples of £2.75. Baggage items, laden draught animals and equipment items such as artillery pieces, carts and wagons are individually priced.
