The first building has gone up on the Galloping Major online shop, it's the Block House by Frontline and is accompanied by a specially sculpted "Soldiers Free" Provincial giveaway.

There's also a deal available which adds a pack of Provincials with light equipment and an extra Soldiers Free character to make up a little eight man unit to garrison the block house.

More details on the website:

Will these be available from your retailor here in the states?

For the moment he's been sticking with just the figure range, but I'll ask him for you, he'll probably spot your query himself though.

Cheers,

Lance

Hello Joe,
I just fired off an email to the Colonel expressing my interest in carrying the buildings. So we got the ball rolling. I also had another email about this stockade, so the interest is there.
take care,
Keith

Hi Keith,
If you are going to expand what you have you need to keep the website up to date. I just checked your site earilier this week and did not see the blockhouse, so I ordered it direct. Sorry!

Hello Lance,
There is good reason why the website did not have the block house on it. I had no deal worked out with the supplier to carry this. That is why I had stated in earlier posts that I was in contact with the Colonel on carrying these buildings. It has been a slow process, and I think the Colonel will back me up on this. This was a deal he had lined up with Frontline in England. I can't put something on the website that I have not been cleared to carry. There are laws about that, so the website is up to date. Just to give you a heads up, I will not be carrying the ships. One thing that you must keep in mind, I am Loyalhanna Outpost. I am not Galloping Major USA. I am the US retailer for Galloping Major Miniatures. There will be things that Lance carries that I will not. If you notice, I do not have the rule books or reference books either. The Colonel and I are trying to work something out on the stockade. I would ask for patience on this,because I have to look at the feasability of carrying these. I will keep all of you posted.
thank you,
Keith

Keith, I really do hope that you and the Colonel can work something out on this. The ships I can understand but the block house really does complement his fine line of minitatures. So Colonel I do hope you and Keith can work something out. And thanks Keith for making the effort.

Joe, I am really trying to make this work. The Colonel and I are mashing numbers on cost and shipping. Let me clarify something. It is not that the Colonel and I are debating costs, we are looking at feasibility. The Colonel is a super guy to work with, and we really do have you guys in mind. Because there is a third party(Frontline) involved, the cost is higher.
take care,
Keith
