6mm figures are 1/285 scale ( the Ameriacn version of 1/300th) so taking a man at
6 feet high 1.8m in metric and divide by 285 you get 6.42 mm from the base of the
feet to eye level which since the mid 80's has been the 'standard' method of measuring
How to order
Orders can be emailed, phoned or sent by post.
We will then cast and pack your order, calculate P&P ( Please let us know your country)
and the when the order is ready for dispatch we will e-mail you the total .
Some find this system a little different but the only way we can give you an EXACT
quote including postage is to get the order ready for dispatch. Additionally there
is no point you paying for an order until its ready to go. If you just want a 'ballpark'
cost the order forms will give you this in most cases and all the prices are on the
website to make your own calculations.
No we don’t have a cart system for several reasons, the complexity of the ranges
for one and also that we only charge the exact postage cost, cart systems just charge
an set amount and we prefer to make our profits from selling figures not skimming
from the postage charges.
Payment can be made by Paypal, cheque or postal order.
To pay via Paypal just click on the Paypal button and that will take you to the paying
We are unable to take payment via card directly, however you can pay using your card
via Paypal without having to set up a Paypal account. This is a much safer way or
paying as Paypals security systems are better than we can offer.
Preset order forms are provided for the pre packed units, just download the appropriate
form AND SAVE IT ( if you dont save, it will be in READ ONLY format which will not
allow you to input details )Once saved you can open the form, fill it in and then
attach it to your e-mail. Simple as that, the order forms will do all the basic math's
as you go.
There is a general order form for strips available as well as specific forms for
the pre packed Napoleonic units. Don’t fill in the POSTAGE section we will do that
A good idea to keep copies of the order forms saves having to download them each
time. So when you open the form to make an order save it say as ORDER and then the
date. They are in ods format which should present no compatibility issues but if
they do occur you can download OPEN OFFICE (http://www.office-suite.org ) This is
freeware/shareware and a dashed good bit of kit.
If your order is a fairly short simple one than you can just cut and paste directly
into an e-mail..
If you have ANY problems with the site please do let us know we appreciate defects
being pointed out to us.
If possible please have the delivery address on your Paypal account filled in in
block capitals as this makes cutting and pasting for posting easier.
There is a PDF downloaded version of the catalogue available HERE
We are also grateful if any problems with particular figures are pointed out us as
these are only evident when someone is painting them. Moulds do wear and sometimes
this goes unnoticed by us as it may have been quite a while since we have painted
any of a particular figure.
Noticed a little confusion about size been around of late, either misscalculation
by some people or another agenda but for clarity a quick pic here which I'll redo
better when I have the time........
Please read the FAQ section below as this will I hope answer various questions you
may have and give you an idea of how we work.
All our ranges are 1/300th scale or 6mm if you prefer except of course the new Ancient
All strips have four infantry or two mounted figures unless indicated by a number
in ( ). One gun or limber model per code.
Pre packed units are worked out on a ration of 20:1 and include the appropriate command
figures, elite company figures and mounted Officers. Where artillery is provided
in a Division pack only deployed guns and crews are provided.
Noticed of late an increasing tendency to order the various skirmish pose figures
XFN 1/2 etc I assume this is because of the more 'senic' bases advocated in rules
sets. These figures are meant to be combined with their advancing pose equivelents
to give a mixed 'two man buddy' look to a skirmish line, we dont have the production
base to provide just the skirmish pose figures in quantity.
