If Hammers is so rich then I don't see why he can't finance 1830s-40s, 1870s-80s, 1890s, and 1920s-30s all from the personal fortune he made swindling the New Guinea natives by selling them Cillit Bang at an enormous mark-up and telling them it was gin.

Then everybody's happy.

I resent the accusation. I told them exactly what it was. Loudly and in Gods own language (Swedish).

I drool, Sir!

At the suggestion of nude figures or at 'Cawnpore' helmets?

True story, there was a chap who commissioned a sculpt of a 1970s Playtex lingerie ad from the 1970s. I was shown the sculpt, then I was shown the lovingly preserved photo torn from some aged edition of The Woman's Weekly. It was a remarkably good likeness. Then I was told the back story to the commission. Suddenly I felt an irresistable urge to wash my hands, indeed shower. I'm supposing that wherever the chap who commissioned it lived the local internets were deficient in 'cawn' or 'pore' or something along those lines.  Shocked

I would strongly suggest that when in London you visit the 'Road to Kabul' display at the National Army Museum in Chelsea...and send Mr. Hicks there on a field trip...I can make sure he sees all the good stuff!

Hi Tommy,

Nope, I don't work for the NAM, just find it to be a great museum. I have been doing research for a series of British in India books (starting with the Sikh Wars) and it has proven to be an invaluable resource. If you haven't had the chance, you should check it out, especially the Afghan exhibit. There is also an India exhibit upstairs (I think it is still running) which is also really good.

Enjoy!

All my best,

Ark

I think Empress better give us some teasers before a few people on forum get over-excited.

Before reading the comments I was content to go with 1880's..if nothing more than to flesh out my colonial armies of that period. However,  Perries already have some nice Indian service dress minis for that era..and the more I think about it I reckon that 1st Afgan war would be much more colourful OR the 1897 campaigns would also let me look at some other colonial projects. Those would be my votes. WHATEVER they do in NWF, I'll end up buying a bucket load I suppose, in the same way as AZW, which incidentally I hope will continue to grow and give us more gems like the hollywood characters packs!

Now now calm down all of you or you will make yourself ill.  Wink

We cannot let you know about the new range until Monday for reasons that we will explain then but we will let you see some pictures of the figures. The release will be about 40 figures.

We will also let you know some of our future Colonial plans.

In the meantime think calm thoughts  Smiley

Using my Sherlock Holmes skills, I deduce dear Watson that the new Empress releases are in fact, not Colonial related...my observation is as follows...in the Empress last post it was stated that,

Hence, the 40 figs referred to must be something other than Colonial figs!

Good thing they keep re-running those Sherlock Holmes mysteries!  Cheesy
