04 Jan 2015 - Hello everyone I hope you all had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year. Well here at Elite Miniatures Australia we were kept busy sending off loads of figures from our Empress Miniatures Modern Range. As a matter of fact our customers brought so many packs that we are now sold out of many codes. But not to fear I have placed another large restock order to Empress Miniatures today, which should arrive in Australia and on the shelves by the first week of February. However a little bad news also for those who have been enjoying the Claymore Casting Range, we stock. Unfortunately with the Aussie dollar a little weak against the British Pound I have to increase my retail cost on the blisters. The blisters will rise in cost by %10 so from $10.00 to $11.00 for the infantry packs. Still a little cheaper then in the UK. The price rise will not go into effect until 05 Feb 2015, in one months time.
