New Danes and Prussians

Post by Il Granatiere » Mon May 21, 2018 10:18 am

Ok I've seen published photos of the firing lines of Danes and Prussians but what about the marching figures? I hoped in an earlier release and I'm suffering....... When will be possible ordering the marching figures?
Will you also produce Danish and Prussian cavalry? what about new specific GNW Danish and Prussian flags? And finally, release date for the new Swedish cavalry?
Sorry for all this questions but you know, for some questions I'm like a kid, and you can not bring a kid in a candy shop and say " Ok be patient; you can eat what you want but you must wait six month!"
Have a great day

Dear Kid ( 8) ) !

Good questions!

here is the news:

I am currently changing casting suppliers and moving all of our moulds (300+) about 200 miles to a new home. One of the main reasons for this is the lead time to create moulds - both master and production. I am looking for a lead time of circ 2-4 weeks and currently am getting 10-12 weeks which is severely restricting our ability to get products to market. The Marching Danes and Prussians have been caught in this vortex. They are currently in the moulding queue. I do hope to have these in production volumes by the end of May.

The Swedish cavalry are also in the same queue and I hope to have them for general release by mid June. They have definitely been very, very late through a series of separate but connected disasters.

The Danish flags for the period of Frederick IV are already done. Clarence is, I believe finishing off the Prussian flags right now.

We currently have no plans for Prussian or Danish Horse because we already have several codes in the range WLOA42 - 56 which are ideally suited to Danish and Prussian cavalry both with soft hats and tricornes.

I will re post this data in more detail on the blog with some added comments from Clarence

I suspect Russian oligarch money is behind the repeated delay of the swedish cavalry.
They know once the swedes get their new cavalry. The Russians can just go home.
So they keep making sure no swedish cavalry shows up.

I think that Truls may be on to something.

This has been hugely frustrating for me (and you too by the sounds of it)

The back story will appear on the blog over the next couple of days but rest assured, aforementioned Danes, Prussians and Swedish cavalry are right now in the production moulding queue awaiting their turn

No problem. I can just sit on a horse wave something around and yell a bit.
Instant Swedish Cavalry
And the Russians would die from laughter.

I don't think Karl XII cares how you kill them. Dead Russians are dead russians!

I now have limited supplies of these but as yet have not had a chance to paint them all and put them in the shop.

If anyone wants to order any of the first 6 codes

3 x Prussian
3 x Danish

please email me and I can send them out
