1st Quarter 2014 New Range: Boer Wars

Coming Soon!

A whole new 15mm range will be released during the first quarter of 2014: Boer Wars

The Boer Wars were two wars fought during 1880–1881 and 1899–1902 by the British Empire against the settlers of two independent Boer republics, the Orange Free State and the Transvaal Republic.

Both conflicts will be covered, our existing British troop range will be expanded, and all new minis will have lots of variety and character.

Some samples of the Boer infantry and cavalry are shown here. Keep an eye on the website and Facebook for more updates as new minis are produced!

We Caught the Website Gnomes!

Some customers have been reporting items disappearing from their shopping carts at checkout or while they were shopping from certain ranges, as if Gnomes had been tinkering with their selections!

I'm glad to report that there were just a few problematic lines of code that were slicing shopping carts into two sections and causing these troubles.  They have now been eliminated, as far as I can tell.   If you still experience any problems with items disappearing from your cart at checkout or during your selection process, please drop me an email and I'll fix any portions of the code that I may have missed.  

Fingers crossed though, everything should be running smoothly already.

Damn Gnomes!
