Short Lived

and now no more, sorry guys.

edited: I should maybe have put 'for now' in the original post. The state of play is that I will not be in a position to do anything with the LSC for the next 6-8 weeks. Hopefully everything should be back to normal by mid September at the latest. As it stands all the moulding is complete on the first two production moulds and they are sitting at Griffin waiting to get the all clear to get to work. I thought it unfair to advertise them when I could not deliver them. All orders have been filled and dispatched and I hope to see some pictures of their spiffy new uniforms from the owners ASAP. I am slowly painting a couple of figures and will post the results when done. Unfortunately my concentration level is not there at the moment so I don't think I'm doing the sculpts justice.

(Does any of that make sense?)

A Few Photos

At last I have a few photos of the initial casts, so far just bare metal and washed versions. Hopefully there will be a few painted ones to follow.

Production Moulds

Having been in email contact with many of you, I have come to realise that although there are others who would like some of the figures they do not normally want them in the same numbers as I do. Initially I was only going to have one production mould which would have allowed a Century of troops per spin.
Taking on board what has been said I am now going to have two production moulds. The first will be of 16 Musketeers. The second will have 10 Pikemen, 2 Officers, 2 NCOs and 2 Drummers. Can you guess which figure seemed to be the most popular?
When they go on sale they will be available as either individual figures and as units of 8 figures. The units will be 8 x Musketeers or 8 x Pikemen or 2 x Officers, 2 x NCOs, 2 x Drummers, 2 x Pikemen (to use as Standard Bearers). This should allow most people to form the units which they want while still working well for me doing the 80+ figure units.


to the new home of my de Saxe miniatures adventure. Moving everything here will achieve a couple of things;
First it will replace the Little Soldier website which has had hosting problems since - well since it started.
Second it will free up the Duchy of Strackenz blog for it's original purpose - to show the Duchies army.
Thirdly it will put all the information into one place and, hopefully, make it easier to find what you want.
