Not Happy with Wargames Foundry customer service. "Update" there is someone who responds"

It seems nobody is home at Customer Service.  Or they just don't give shit.  Back last year I ordered six bottles of paint from them.   This was on the 27 October.  They charge 6 pounds for express mail.  Around about the 15 of December the paint showed up on my door step.  The package only had 4 bottle with a note they would  ship the two asap they came in. 

Emailed wargames foundry on the 15th of January 2019.  No reply from customer service.  Email them today again on the status of the missing paint.   Beware of ordered from them.

UPDATE  Lucy responded today.  My paint will be shipped as soon as possible
The note that came with the order.

Victrix Libyan Spear men

During the time I was laid up from my knee replacement.  I managed to assemble my Carthaginian army that was sitting to dungeon. Lucky I found before my wife put them some place where I would never find them.  They are based for Impetus.   Impetus to me looks and should play a good ancient battle.

Fifty shades of Feldgrau

If you haven't notice I'm slowly returning to broads game.  I got so miniatures that had never seen the light of day.  Or played with once. Only to have the group go in another direction.  That least I can play the broad games solo.  Plus the cost in the end it cheaper than buying miniatures.

Fifty shades of Feldgrau pretty well covers any didn't squard level broad game.  Take a look you might find it interesting.

Afternoon all ūüôā Something naval for you today. 95% done but it's good enough to show now. Details left to do are some rigging on the masts, flags, railing and steps for the flying bridge and some extra weathering. 28mm for the Tonkin expedition and the boat is 780mm from stem to stern. There will be some buildings and fortifications for the same project

Riflemen (Royal American Regiment) by Robert Griffin

I believe I need to order this book.

The 5th Battalion of the 60th (Royal American) Regiment was the first rifle battalion in the regular British Army. Raised in 1797, it marked a significant step in the development of British light infantry and rifle corps. Lieutenant Colonel Francis de Rottenburg, the battalion’s commander for almost 10 years, formulated the first British Army light infantry manual. After serving in Ireland during the 1798 rebellion, in the West Indies, and in the Americas, the battalion rose to fame during the Peninsular War. It was one of only three battalions to be present from the initial landings in Portugal through to the invasion of France, and victory six years later. Divided between the brigades of Wellington’s army to provide specialist rifle and skirmishing capability, the riflemen often formed advance or rear guards, patrols and outposts. Frequently praised by Wellington and his divisional commanders, the battalion won 16 battle honours. Drawing on official records, memoirs, court martial transcripts, inspection reports, and unpublished letters, Riflemen recounts not only the campaigns in which the battalion fought, but also many personal stories of the soldiers who served with it. Riflemen includes tales of murder, promotion from the ranks, desertion, prisoners of war, and small actions that are often overlooked. As the first history of the battalion written in almost 100 years, it sheds new light on a vital component of Wellington’s army and its important place in the history of the British Army.
