More Mutiny Men

The completed Mutineer artillery battery- san hanging static grass this time.



Despite the ever increasing amounts of Government crap I am now supposed to deal with due to the success tax- sory says he knuckling his forelock  governemnt wars that eould be VAT-  I've still managed to finish a couple more units for my slowly growing Indian Mutiny project. Now to be fair  much of this was basing as the British were painted by  James Main. Though the mutineers are by me. Still the British would be pathetic without the units that Jim painted for me-I have an unbased Punjab Irregular Force unit that is next in line for treatment as well.
  Any how here are the photos.
The 52nd Foot- Light Infantry - one of the Delhi Field force units,



N.C.O and Officer.

More of this stuff is on the painting table. More Mutineers for a start including some Irregulars Barkanzies and sucghlike. Watch this space.

Phew I could do with a breather.

 Van loaded up for the York show all ready to go at half past firts sparrow fart tomorrow morning . I sometimes wonder how the hell I get everything done.
 This last week has been just a tad fraught.as OGUK is now VAT registered again- the finacial crash forced us out of VAT registry in 2010  but we are now registered again. This has a downside- some prices will HAVE to rise simply to pay the taxes when due. HMRC says they must. Now I will not be putting the complete tax on everything I'm going to absorb around half of it as an importer pays an awful lot of VAT up front .
 Nevertheless prices will rise- for the UK and EU customers. Blokes out side these countries don't have to pay so I'll simply refund them the correct proportion if they order via the website or if the email me directly  paypal them the non vat price.
 Now prices have not yet risen I simply have not had the time to work them all out as the amount of government bullshit is IMMENSE and much of it hidden from view in obscure pages of their website in small print that I as visually impaired find sometimes difficult to read let alone understand once I have manged to read the gobblegook.
 So please bear with me, our 30 figure bags of 25/8 mm figure will need to go up to £29.00 inc VAT  which still makes them cheaper than most of the competition. Smaller packs will rise in proportion.
 Most of the Blue Moon 15mm packs will go up by about a pound though some will not go up at all and a few may rise by a couple of quid

See you at Vapnartak in York tomorrow
