News Update

Infantry figure prices have now been changed to $2.00 per figure, but mounted officers ($5.00) and artillery (mostly at $6.00 per cannon, but higher for sets that include horses and other extra figures) will remain at the same price.

I still haven't had time to enter and change the new product codes, so you can still order single figures up through Memorial Day here in the States (Monday May 27, 2013) as I should have some time to make the changes, given the long three day weekend.

I talked to Stewart Griffin the other day and he reports that the new artillery equipment  production moulds are being worked on this week. Once I have the configuration of the number of pieces in the new moulds, I can then order my initial inventory stock with Griffin Designs. Stewart is very good at turning stocking orders around quickly, so it should not be too much longer before we add at least 12 new artillery equipment products to the range. So we should be ready to ship cannon in June.

FACE BOOK: from time to time, I will run some special figure deals that will only be announced on my Der Alte Fritz Face Book page. So you have to be one of my "Friends" on FB if you want to get in on some of these tasty deals.

Der Alte Fritz on Face Book

I will be attending Historicon (July 18-21, 2013) at Fredericksburg, Virginia and bringing the full Fife & Drum range with me. I will also be running two AWI games featuring, what else, Fife & Drum Miniatures. The games will be held on Thursday and Friday evenings, after the dealer area closes down. I will be sharing booth space with Age of Glory (they were very kind to make this offer to me and I gladly accepted).

There will also be some special figures that we will be unveiling at Historicon. So you have to drop by the booth if you want to get in on some of the goodies.

Price & Packaging Changes Update

I have not had the time yet to upload all of the new packaging codes and so the old prices and single figure order option will remain open until I actually make the changes on this web site. I will probably do that within a week, so any orders made before, say, May 10th can be done under the previous price/packaging policy.

I'm sorry about the delay, but that gives you an extra week to slip your order in under the wire.
