Ordered the stuff for our ITLSU 1917 project over the weekend...a fair chunk I might add  Wink

BIG thanks to Leon for his flexibility on my numbers of figures required and the great customer service.

Since I'm in NZ its not like we can just pop round to the factory and pick up the order when its ready Smiley

Thanks also to Paul for the great job he did on painting up my 1914 stuff - on the last batch of mainly German Dragoons now, though he might get a few more 1914 British figures to do with this order to round out the infantry battalions to full strength and add a couple of cavalry MG carts.

We'll keep you posted on how things are going.

I also have to really thank Leon & co, my part of the order had 43 different codes, 22 of those included part packs  Shocked

Some examples;
  German guns with crew from the East African range,  Wink
  commanders from the Turkish gun crews to give me officer variety,  Shocked
  pack horses with MGs from the SCW range (but not the lead horse from that pack),  Wink
  3 different codes from the South American Pacific war range for the Asian Korps cavalry of 6 figures Shocked Shocked Shocked

Leon's comments "we can sort all of this out for you, no bother at all", "We can't offer much in the way of discount on custom orders like this, but we can knock the shipping down a bit".

 Applause Applause Applause Applause Applause Applause Applause

Two very happy custoners waiting for a very tired postman to arrive at Peter's place  Wink

Now to focus on finishing the current batch of 1914 stuff so I can do some AWI before this lot arrive Hurry up!

Over 100 views  Shocked and the project hasn't really started yet  Wink

I'm looking at Sinai and Palestine mainly in 1917. Being a Kiwi my main focus is the New Zealand Mounted Rifle Brigade but I have tried to select units that will let me cover a variety of actions.

Imperial Forces
Mounted Cavalry Brigade
Dismounted Cavalry Brigade
2 Infantry Battalions (plus enough extra infantry & MGs to convert dismounted Brigade into an Infantry Brigade)
1 Horse artillery Battery
1 Field artillery Battery (which can act as a second HA battery)
1 Mounted Camel Brigade Battalion (can use dismounted cavalry as remainder of brigade)
2 Tanks
2 Armoured cars
2 Light cars (Model Ts with MG on back)

Turkish Forces
Turkish Infantry Regiment
Arab Infantry Regiment (which can also serve as 'regular' revolting Arabs)
MG Battalion
2 Artillery Batteries
Mounted Cavalry Regiment

German Forces basically Pasha II
3 Infantry Battalions with attached MG companies
Pioneer Company
MG Company (which can be used for Austrians, sort of)
Cavalry Squadron
Mixed Artillery Battery (which can be used for Austrians, sort of, most Austrians will be off table)

Arabs ('loyal', revolting, or independant)
20 mixed stands of Arabs

Intelligence reports indicate the figures are on their way  Smiley

Apparently passed through Germany on their way to NZ last night, that should have pleased the figures for Pasha II  Wink

I better crack on with basing the last of the 1914 chaps and that AWI Militia Hurry up!

Did a bit more planning and organising in anticipation of the imminent arrival  Smiley

I think I will go with pale background colours for the labels to show nationality: Imperial - blue, Turks - red, Arabs - green.

Not sure about Germans - darker red? or the Turkish Arab regiment that can be used as regular Arabs  Undecided

I am reliably informed that our order was at Changi airport this morning Smiley Smiley Smiley

At this rate I won't have varnished the last batch of the 1914 project before the next lot get here  Shocked

Let alone finished the brigade of AWI Militia I was planning to do in the interim  Wink

How is it that you can track your order so exactly when I have no idea what happens to mine once it leaves Middlesborough, 240 miles away by road?

Morning Hertsblue

The freight company that PM shipped the order with sent me a email with a tracking number link so been watching its progress from time to time and I've been keeping Paul up to speed.

Looks like he better do some speed painting this weekend if he wants to get that other stuff finished before the 1917 order turns up - its left Changi now, hopefully heading in a generally SE direction  Cool
