Wargames Foundry Order Arrives!

Having recently convinced myself of the relative value of Wargames Foundry figures (see: Wargames Foundry Bargains), I plunged in with an order to take advantage of the offer.  Checking my records, it had been about 15 years from my last Foundry order.  Yes!  My last Foundry order really was in the last millennium.

For this order, I chose a selection of figures from the Caananite, Syrian, and Mitanni range.  Also included were a handful of Renaissance packs for Jake.  With the order placed on 15 OCT, I waited.  I did not have long to wait, however.  When I returned after a vigorous workout on the bike yesterday afternoon, in the mailbox were two packages from Wargames Foundry.  That is a two week turn-around from order placement to receipt.  Well done!  

Packages arrived with monogrammed reinforcing straps
After unpacking, the loot was spread out on a side desk.  Notice that a sizable bunch of NorthStar spears was also included.  A welcome addition and represents even better value.


The Loot

With quick turn-around and prompt responses to queries , Wargames Foundry again has me considering their vast line of figures.  The only disappointment is that the give-away cuirassier figure was not included in either package.

No Bonus Cuirassier
Update: Contacted Wargames Foundry and they will either ship cuirassier separately or add it in to my next order.

    1. Yes. Enough for your pikemen. Not enough included for all of mine but I do have extra laying about for myself.

    2. Keep the number you need. I am putting in an order through Caliber books to take advantage of the other deal you posted about...

    1. Hi Andrew, perhaps I had to specifically request the bonus figure? Anyway, I received a lot of great figures for a great price. I was looking forward to the freebie, though. Maybe next time?

    2. AFAIK you get the bonus automatically. Drop them an email as James says.

  4. Very nice. It is good to see the Foundry in action again.

    So, those will be painted up, say, by the end of next month??

    1. Very funny, El Grego! These Biblicals will be a project to be started later. I have a lot I want to complete before I dive into these. I know, famous last words...
