Brand new Calpe website
Posted by Martin on March 16, 2013
When Peter F and I first put together the Calpe Miniatures website more years ago that I care to remember, the fact that a wargames miniatures company (let alone one run by sole trader) had a website at all was something special in itself without worrying about what people could actually do with it. But time has passed and customer expectation has grown exponentially: more pictures, online ordering, more frequent news updates and so on…
Over time, keeping up with that has been harder and harder to do – especially since my “real world” commitments have grown and mean that I no longer have the time and resources to devote that the Calpe website deserves. For some time now, Peter has been exploring ways to solve this conundrum and the result is that we’ve moved the Calpe website to a new place with new functionality and new ways of keeping it up to date that will make life easier for Peter and better for his customers. It also means that I will no longer need to worry about looking after the website because the new one provides tools for Peter to do that himself.
The observant among you will notice that many of the older Calpe ranges are not on the new site. Fear not, there’s a plan for them. To quote from the introduction on the new site: “There [will be] a link to the old website where you can still purchase the old range of Prussian figures. From now on, the old range will be known as the ‘Calpe Veterans’, while the new figures will come under the title of ‘Calpe System’ figures.” That’s still being set up at the moment and I’ll let you know when it’s available.
Lastly, this doesn’t mean the end of my involvement with Calpe Miniatures and you can still expect to get advance inside information from Calpe Towers right here. The next report is likely to be in the immediate aftermath of Salute 2013 (if not sooner).
So go and emjoy the new site and all that it offers!
