Most countries have a threshold before customs and the taxman can be bothered filling out the paperwork to chase you. Break up your order into small amounts. Why not contact customs to find out want the threshold is then make sure your orders are underneath it. The one really good thing about Khuras...

For my first Mongol army was Alain Touller figures link below. The figures are really nice with some mix and match options with other steppe figures (including dismounted) but are a true 15mm and I think quite small by others makers. http://www.atoufigs.com/Default.asp?PGFLngID=1 As I have since use...

I run a Central Asian City States army, and I have not been yet been beaten in four games amongst friends so it is not a true measure but a rough idea. Though it was close last game as one of my generals got knocked of his perch at a very inconvenient point in a close combat fight. My list is; 4xTC ...

I have no basic problem with the VMD in fact due to our misreading the rules we have been rolling the VMD for every charge which has lead to some interesting events. I understand the main reason for VMD is to allow for the possibility of catching skirmishers. It just seemed odd to roll it in one cir...

Thanks I see that point on the second to last page of the section. A question for the design why only roll a VMD if all targets envade? I can understand rolling a VMD each time you charge but only if the target evades is odd. A VMD that allows for extra movement if fine but shorten the charge? In on...

Hi Richard, Thank you for the information much appreciated, as it is for my brother I will check to see how figures he is has brought so far. I know he only wants to use four bases of Winged Hussars, I assume it is to do with the cost of them. Will four bases of Winged Hussars fit within the minimum...

Question on the Errata

In the French errata it lists the musketeers as 8 points when part of a pike and shot BG but after 1643 and they can be used separately it lists the musketeers as 7 points (see below). Why is there a difference in the point cost when they appear to be the same or am I mis-reading something. Petits V...
