According to the picture that war was a lot shorter than I thought it was.

Peter, thank you for holding the line on your prices for as long as you have. It has cost you money that you didn't deserve to lose. Right after the vote a number of my Canadian and American friends started to order a number of things from the UK. Who could resist, our dollars were never higher vs the pound. Hopefully someday somebody will set it right again.

come on now, 10% more on 6 pounds(the price for shipment to sweden) is like nothing. not even with 100% rise, thats 12 pounds per pack, even that is nothing. it had been much much worse if the price was 30-40 pounds, then it would sting a bit to order.

The wee men are totally worth it. ;) We all benefit from an healthy business of yours.
What frightens me more is that upcoming Brexit. Hope, that there will be no big obstacles for delivery into EU, considering customs and stuff...

Oddly enough Brexit and the falling pound has increased my purchasing from Baccus, but I am sure my 4 times a year $50 purchases are not going to make up for the other impacts.  Doing what I can for the team, though... Of course here is what the price hike is really all about:

Well, as long as there's a an entire deck with a wargames table stretching from bow to stern, that's okay! :)

Turkish Infantry.. that's a Delight!

Looking forward to more 'Mespot' figures

Remember when you could get a 25mm Minifigs figure for 6p. However I was only on 50p/week pocket money then. Prices are all relative and will inevitably increase.

10 pounds per pack! When I first started this 6mm adventure it was under 4 pounds per pack, so prices have more than doubled in a decade. This is not Peter's fault at all. And the Baccus miniatures are a terrific value. But let's not act like the cost of this hobby has not skyrocketed in a decade. 10 pounds per pack is not cheap. It might be reasonable, necessary and appropriate, but it's not cheap.
