as you may have noticed we haven't got new releases out for March,
that's because we're still stuck in a shed in the middle of nowhere,
and the current scant production facilities are already stretched to
the limit. Therefore rather than trying to go against the current
we're trying to ride it, and while we wait for the new workshop to be
available (at the end of September) we've decided to concentrate on
developing new stuff, even if it can't be released right now.
I've just updated the progress bars on our website, and here are the
news in short, divided per range:
Progress continue on the 28mm Medieval tent and the 15mm Tibetan tent
and Byzantine HQ. These three models are currently earmarked as the
next coming releases in this range.
The Japanese palisade is ready for production and we expect to have
the ditch set mold ready by the end of the week too.
We've also finally started on the first batch of new modules that will
take Hoppidus another big step forward: the masters for 15mm city
walls and towers are in the work, and the first modules will be
Mycenean style. We hope to have a Troy set out in time for xmas 08,
although it's likely that will be avalaible in limited numbers only at
The range as now been temporarily discontinued as we're in the process
of completely redesigning all the existing masters and adding new
ones. The last few models in stock are still available in the
The new range will be available ASAP and will include ancient 15mm
buildings, starting from Mycenean ones of course!
Remastered versions of the ancient buildings, walls and palisades in
20mm and new original models will follow soon after.
Well, there is a lot more to say, but I don't want to bore you to
death and I need to save some for later, so that's all for now.
A very good egg and lamb celebration to all those so inclined, and
stay tuned for the latest news!
