an important aspect is the cost of postage. The larger the order the smaller the price per figure for postage. If you send one figure, the cost will be about five dollars per figure. If you send 100 figures the price will be about two dollars a figure, if you send 500 figures the price will be about $.50 USD per figure.

I have sent about the same number of orders as Bill has. Almost all 2528 mm. All excellent work. In the beginning you just got the figures back, hoping for the best. Now however you get pictures of the first figure of the batch and you can tell if anything needs to be fixed.

I haven't ordered anything in the last two years but prior to that I don't think I waited more than three months for anything. Nowadays I'm doing a lot of Skirmish gaming, so my orders would not be large enough for Fernando. So have used domestic sources.

There have been a few, very few, cases for something did not turn out just right, but nothing that I couldn't just touch up myself. I guess that all happened before he had the test pictures. I had some Maximilian French artillery men in a box with Martinique infantry. As it would be, the artilleryman got painted Black, too. Well I just Drybrush most of them with euro fleash and they were fine. Some I just used as Mexicans, With just a bit of tannish Drybrush.

This is a unit of twelve archers, comprising four unique poses.

Nude Amazon archers

Several years ago, TMP readers voted to see a fantasy Amazon army, and then selected this army design (and these figures) as their choice.

The figures were donated by the manufacturer, Eureka Miniatures.

The prototype figures were painted by Beowulf Supporting Member of TMP Fezian, a professional artist. (I'm not sure if one of this set is a prototype figure.)

Fernando Enterprises, a painting service, then painted the rest of the figures based on the prototype.

This particular batch of figures were not painted to Fernando Enterprises' usual standard of excellence. Therefore, I did some touch-up work to make sure that the edges of things such as bow cases and straps were completely painted.

I then based and flocked the figures.

I filled the bases with putty, then added Litko's adhesive FlexSteel to the bottoms so the figures can be stored in magnet-lined boxes.

Here, above and below, are the four unique poses in this range.

One of my photography lights died while these pictures were bring taken, so soon, I'll have my upgrades – I have some LED photography lights on order.
