My order was quickly dispatched, and arrived across the big water at my local post office in about 9 days. My postal carrier then tried to deliver two packages, left a note saying that I had a parcel to pick up at the post office, which I picked up the next day, and all was well.
Unfortunately, I actually had two parcels to pick up, so I waited another three weeks, before e-mailing Andy at H&R. Andy again took the initiative, and chased down the fact that the parcel was sitting at my post office for the last three weeks (my apologies to US customs, who I thought was once again having fun with me), waiting to be picked up. The package was retrieved later in the day, and I am thoroughly delighted with everything. Most importantly, I cannot express how impressed I am with Andy and the service provided by Heroics and Ros.
If you are not familiar with Heroics & Ros, or have possible interest in H&R products, please visit the H&R site. Andy has set the standard by which other others should be compared for offering exemplary service.
Here are the toys:
BM75 Vickers Mk III
BM32 1/2 Ton Landrover
SMA401 Mig 23/27
SMA204 Yak38 Forger
SMA405 Mi2 Hoplite
M26 1980s British infantry
M27 1980s British Infantry Support
M28 Soviet Motor Rifles
M29 Soviet Motor Rifle Support
Overall, I am quite happy with the castings. The Mi2 Hoplite is just too cool, and will be a proxy for Mugabian Mi4s in my game. The infantry are the newer castings, and the most upright standing figures measure about 6.5mm tall bottom of foot to top of helmet.
The new infantry appear a touch taller and more crisp than the older style, but I think would work fine on the table with units made of the older figs. I know that I will have older and newer figs on the table at the same time, with no reservations.
Anyway, hats off to Heroics & Ros for the fabulous service.
