Lancashire Games Winter Sale Bonanza

Liking what I saw of my earlier Lancashire Games' order, I placed one more order before the Winter Sale expired.  With a double discount in force (15% Winter Sale plus the multiple Battle Pack discount), how could I reset?  Well, clearly, I could not! 

Order was placed on 31JAN2015 and delivered to Washington State on 12FEB2015.  Again, excellent turn around.  As I mentioned in an earlier posting upon receipt of my first large order from Lancashire Games (see 1859-Austrian Double Shot), the 40% postage charged on order did not tie with actual postage delivery charge.  In the case of this latest order, postage charged was BP39.30 while actual postage charge came in at BP26.96.  Allan automatically refunded BP10 after my package was shipped. Fantastic!  Allan mentions that he routinely refunds postage charges on large orders when such discrepancies arise.  Good form!

What did I order this time?  Having not seen any cavalry, picking up some troopers was a top priority.  I chose cavalry for the 1859 project including Austrian uhlans and hussars; Sardinian heavy cavalry; and French chasseurs a cheval and hussars.  Other cavalry included French horse from the FRW range consisting of hussars and line cavalry.  Exquisite stuff!  How will these cavalry fit with Old Glory and Mirliton for the 1859 project and AB and Eureka for the 1799 project?  We will see.  The box of goodies has yet to make it down into the game room.  Rounding out the order were 1859 French infantry, Austrian artillerymen and command, and Sardinian Bersaglieri.

Now, I must get through more 28mm Napoleonic lead before turning some attention to these beauties.

    1. Soren, these figures were a much better value than I first thought. I must recheck my computations to ensure their accuracy to before broadcasting the results.

      Yes, a real compliment to Lancashire Games' customer service to refund some of the postage. Well done and much appreciated!
