Painted For Sale At Col. Bills - Victorian Cab & ACW Ambulance

Quoted from Colonel Bill's Facebook:

"We are very happy to say that we have a couple of new collectors items amongst our painted 28mm stock. Both are from the highly talented Chris Campion. The first is a Victorian Hansom Cab. Chris believes this to be a Eureka Miniatures item. The second is a Perry Miniatures ACW ambulance complete with crew and wounded. We suspect that both of these items will end up in a display cabinet somewhere rather than on a wargames table."

Col. Bill's - 28mm Spanish Naps Now Stocked, & 'Best Seller' Pack Horses!

Quoted from Colonel Bill's Facebook:

"We are very pleased to announce that we are now able to sell Eagle Figures 28mm Spanish Napoleonic range through our online shop.

Eagle Figures has been in existence for around 25 years, but were bought by their current owner 3 years ago. The Spanish are the first range that have been produced in total since that time. They are sculpted by the ultra talented Ian Mountain and are very compatible in size with Perry Miniatures.

Although we will not be carrying these figures at wargames shows/events they will be available for pre-order at our normal 10% discount which is available via our checkout system."
Last blog post I showed off the latest Depot Battalion miniatures - two pack horses, with cargoes. Well they've gone on to become so popular as to become an instant best seller!

Released for pre-sale last Thursday. On sale to the public from last Saturday. 95% of stock sold out by yesterday!

But fear not, for NEW (re)STOCK has arrived from the casters and Col. Bill's now has plenty more of them to sell.
Some personal stuff, now.

Cheers for looking
