So 84 miniatures from Fife and Drum arrived yesterday. I had a chance to go through this morning Jim at Fife and Drum did a marvelous job at filling my order. Although I do wish he would work up some regimental packs, it was a bit tedious getting my order into his system. They are fabulous miniatures and I really can't recommend them enough. They are well cast and mold lines are quite light. They were well backed and I only saw a few bent bayonets in the packs. Jim was also kind enough to include a few freebie extras in the package including a mounted American office (fortunate since I was going to order one and I forgot in the excitement of ordering more lead).
I need to clean up a couple of these and paint up a couple of samples just to see what I can do with them. I'm currently painting 4 of the Perry's right now. Four happens to be the number that fits on the popsicle/craft sticks I use when painting up army units. So you can at least look forward to a couple of samples in the next couple of weeks.
|The first set of bags of minis all came with a nice header card attached.|
|I think by the end he was tired of attaching header cards! Looking forward to breaking out the brushes and working on these!|
