So for a basic infantry pack, that's a price of just over £2.00 per figure, a price hike of just over 75p , with the expensive US shipping costs on top. Can't see them doing much business in the UK anymore.
Rules? You ask me what rules do I use. No, I don't do rules.

$200 and free postage and a 10% discount. And I assume the prospect of duty etc...

Nah. That's killed them for me...

That is what I was thinking Tim, when he produces the AWI / SYW range of classic Spencer Smith based on this info I suspect they
will be at least £1.50p each. Outside the price range I would want to pay for them.
US shipping costs on top and UK import / VAT, can't see them doing much business in the UK anymore.

I made an officer, standard bearer, drummer and private for my shiny ACW project and gave the masters to Peter to add to his range. Now the buggers have crossed the pond, never to be seen again.

I feel a little sad, but I hope they get produced and that someone over there gets to play with them.
