I am sure that I am not alone in having that feeling of expectation you have when you ordered something from overseas and then sit back to wait its arrival – this goes back to when I was a lad sending my £2 postal notes to Britain and waiting six months for the surface mail to arrive. It is almost as much a part of the war-gaming hobby for me as actually painting and playing games.
So, it is Christmas time in July for me here at the Woolshed. 136 Zulus, 32 British and some special set/characters. My painting for the next month has been taken care of.
This was my first ever order from Black Tree Designs so I was a little apprehensive. However, I had emails when the order was received, picked and posted. Then I got updates with an ETA for the parcel that said 28th July. Low and behold – it arrived on the 28th July.
