RTE Nationwide coverage of the Toy Soldier Factory and Battle of Waterloo Exhibit 14th October 2015

At the start of August 2015 RTE showed interest in including our Toy Soldier Factory in one of their upcoming Nationwide programs. Several staff were interviewed and so was André Rudolph, the creator of the huge Battle of Waterloo diorama currently on exhibit in our visitor center.

Finally on October 14th 2015, the program aired and we were shown in the second half of that episode. We are very pleased with the segment and are grateful to those involved with RTE for having shared our business with the rest of their audience.

With that in mind Prince August has cut the prices of their bargain starter kits by 50% until noon on October 21st 2015 UTC+1.

New Release | 3 Battle of Waterloo leaders as 25mm scale primed metal figures

Prince August recently started hosting a huge diorama of the Battle of Waterloo at their Toy Soldier Factory Visitor Center, and realised that they had never made the three leaders of the major powers that took part in that historical battle, even though they had a wide selection of rubber moulds for casting the soldiers and regular officers.
This inspired them to produce these and make them available to allow other wargamers or historical diorama builders to have these legendary men as part of their vision.
The three leaders are as follows: Prussian Field Marshal Blücher, French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and the Allied British Commander, Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington.

French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte
These three figures are mounted and pre-primed so as soon as you get them you can paint them. The rider and horse are not glued or cast together to allow for an easier time in painting all the details before final assembly.

Prince August has also catered for those collectors that do not want to paint the figures themselves and have options where a customer can choose whether they want a hand painted figure, antique finished figure or the default primed figure. A simple tick box makes this selection a snap.

For the next 4 days or so Prince August is also giving the primed figures away for FREE when someone purchases one of their Army Packs. For each army pack chosen there is an option to select ONE leader as well. An army pack is a great bundle deal that includes metal with a selection of moulds at a low price that allows you to cast an army at unbeatable rates.
This offer expires at noon on October 13th 2015 UTC+1.

New Mithril Release | Lord Golasgil of Anfalas

Golasgil, Lord of Anfalas | New Mithril Miniature
Golasgil, Lord of Anfalas.

Last years Fellowship August winner is finally released. This highly detailed mounted Gondorian Lord is Golasgil, one of the lesser known lords of Gondor, who lead an army to aid his capital of Minas Tirith during the War of the Ring. His forces were defeated in the Battle of Plennor Fields but it is believed that he survived that encounter as no record is provided of his death. Anfalas is one of the poorer regions and thus his army largely consisted of hunters and farmers rather than warriors, which unsurprisingly resulted in their destruction when facing crazed and fanatical Mordorian Orcs and their allies.
The fellowship member responsible for submitting this fine idea is 'mcdsean'. This was his first victory and first idea, although it took several tries to win the day.
This figure is 32mm scale, and is primed but it will require assembly before painting.
