PRICE LIST


Our prices have remained unchanged since 2015.


Guiding Principle of Pricing: We charge multiples of £1.75 for both figures on foot and riders (without the horse).  Where on occasion there is a great deal more metal going into the mould than usual, as with the Gandamak set for example, we might have to set a slightly higher price. For horses we charge in multiples of £2.50. Sets of 6 riders and horses are slightly discounted. Personality Figures can sometimes cost a little extra.  


2-figure codes on foot: £3.50

3-figure code on foot: £5.25

4-figure codes on foot: £7.00

5-figure codes on foot: £8.75
