Too bad the picture of the 1930s British infantry shows a very badly mold misalignment in the kneeling firing figure. I would be rather leery of buying newly available figures that had that much mold misalignment.

Well what can I say. Thats a really bad picture of a really bad figure. I can assure you its not indicative in any way of the range or indeed anything coming out of the Empress/ Mutton Chop stable.

If any customers get any issues like this from us we would simply re-place them without any hassle. We had a few figures hit with mould slippage in the first runs which got through the net but we captured most, or so we thought.

Have to wonder why WI chose to use that picture without any discussion with us guys? They certainly have never purchased any from us directly.

That mouldline does not look like anything a competent mouldmaker would create (directly through the face).

It looks more like the product of a homebrew two-part mould made from an existing miniature by dipping it into the first half.
