Long time I searched the way to produce my sets quickly.
The latest attemp started soon and I try to produce at least four Infantry sets simultaneously in spring 2018.

Set will consist 3 command figures and one trooper pose with different faces and equipment. I find out, that similar poses looks better on table than different ones.

So if there are ones, who want to some exotic Infantry sets to be produced, this is your time.

Christmas Offer – your desired full Infantry set will be available on next year (2018) and cost only 96 EUR for sculpting and producing.

Excellent my exotic wishes are in your mail box.

What is one unit? How many?
Could it be for example, 24 Portuguese legion from 1812? ( but then 4 each!!!!)

Sho Boki24 Dec 2017 10:39 a.m. PST

Unit here – set with distinctive uniforms.
Officer, flagbearer, drummer and troopers.

Mould capasity is 12 figs max, so there may be up to 9 lightly different troopers.

Valmy9224 Dec 2017 2:49 p.m. PST

May the 9 slightly different troopers include a couple of flank/elite company troopers?

Sho Boki24 Dec 2017 2:56 p.m. PST

Yes, they may. The same basic uniform, different equipment, epaulettes, plumes.

Sho Boki25 Dec 2017 1:11 a.m. PST

My idea is to make the trooper doll in basic uniform, like the figure on the right. Mould and cast it and then add faces and equipment details.

Sho Boki27 Dec 2017 4:54 a.m. PST

So far Early (1792) Prussian and British Units are ordered.
Mould matrix is half-ready.

Sho Boki28 Dec 2017 1:14 a.m. PST

Spanish 1794 ordered.

Valmy9204 Jan 2018 5:10 a.m. PST

Has a 4th unit type been ordered yet? Or multiple under consideration?

Sho Boki04 Jan 2018 8:37 a.m. PST

Not yet.
I try to sculpt at least four sets, this is minimum, but prepare to sculpt up to 10 sets, so there are lot of sets to order. Units for free sets I choose by myself in the end.

Today I finished mould and casted some dolls.
So Christmas Offer will last one more week, until 14.January. After this I create ordinary offer for Mass Army Infantry sets, wich doubles the Christmas price.

You want to order some set?

Valmy9204 Jan 2018 9:16 a.m. PST

I think so, several ideas in mind, would do one, need to decide which is most worth it to me. I'll be in touch directly soon.

patrick76605 Jan 2018 1:09 p.m. PST

Sho, I would like to order the 2nd Guard Eclaireurs, but I need 12 figures. Is there some way to order the set plus 2 figures?

Thank you,

Dear Santa Claus

Please tell this crazy chap that he has incredibly wasted talent, but is working in the wrong scale. We need 28mm Empress Guard Dragoons, with white lapels, in parade rig and horses that are not charging like lunatics. Bit of work to make Grenadiers a Chev the same, add Gend d'Elite .

Now, suddenly, he is a rich man and he surpasses even the Perrys. The yacht in St Tropez, the DB9, the Learjet.

It is St Paul on the Road to Damascus. Let him see the light and move to the One True Scale. (OK let us forget the final outcome for St Paul…..)

Sho Boki05 Jan 2018 5:20 p.m. PST

Hi Patrick.

It is possible, because there are allways some castings, when some figures don't cast properly and other figures in set become therefore obsoleted orphans.

I must create special "random figure" offer in my shop for such causes.

Deadhead, you may allways to be converted to the Three Right Scales Trinity.. ;-)

Sho Boki06 Jan 2018 8:26 p.m. PST

Patrick, the possibility is added.

patrick76608 Jan 2018 3:25 p.m. PST

Thank you Sho! Ill put an order together.


Sho Boki13 Jan 2018 3:59 p.m. PST

Valmy92, are you decided something?
I may prolong this offer for while..
on next week I will start with von Winterfeldt sets along with Gendarmes and continue with one of my own (showed on quiz).

Valmy9214 Jan 2018 8:53 a.m. PST

Sho, emailed you directly.

Sho Boki14 Jan 2018 5:21 p.m. PST

Looks like we will have bunch of Revolutionary period armies.
4 ordered by you and 4-8 added by myself in first round of building Mass Army project.

Sho Boki18 Jan 2018 3:44 a.m. PST

Napoleonic British East Indian Company sepoys ordered.
Very exotic and interesting challenge.

Sho Boki24 Jan 2018 3:24 a.m. PST

So.. now all discussed orders are made.

1792 British
1792 Prussians
1792 French Bleus
