The perils of over-excitement
Posted by Martin on April 20, 2011
My excuse is that I was too excited to notice. I’d been waiting to get my hands on those Calpe French for so long, so I think it’s understandable that I didn’t spot my incy-wincy error – especially since Peter F. wasn’t well enough to hand over the figures in person. By the way, for all of those who were kind enough to ask, Peter is feeling a lot better now. Thank you!
So swiftly on to my confession…
When I received two bags of six Calpe French figures, I instantly assumed that all twelve were unique poses. Well, Peter has gently pointed out to me that they were in fact two sets of the same six figures. Don’t blame me – none of you spotted it from the photos 🙂 On the plus side, Peter has confirmed that there is another pack of French fusiliers in uncovered shakos and a third pack with bare heads, head turn variants and forage caps (I think this means pokalems). There are also four voltigeur figures and four grenadier figures.
Peter has asked me to mention that the pack of six fusiliers in covered shakos is available to order NOW (Product Code F1). The others will be available soon and, without wishing to jump the gun, I think that means before the end of this month in some cases.
