New Arrivals and a Price Increase - Oh No!


From the collection of Tony Yates

New arrivals to the Palace of Ever-Glorious War in the form of generic light infantry skirmisher girls. Khmer Amazons from my Garden of Kama range, now offered as a Horde pack for $40. Note that weapons and shields are not provided. I recommend wire javelins from North Star Miniatures. The figures have tabs but are NOT supplied with slotta bases.

And my generic shields have gone up a quarter to $1 each due to rising costs. :-(
