    Default Next phase of hougoumont

    Dear Treefroggers

    As you may have noticed i have not brought out many new models over the last few years, this is because I have been working when time permitted on the next phase of the Hougoumont Farm for the battle of Waterloo.
    This was always going to be the most difficult part of the model to sculpt an mould , so apologies for the time it has taken so far.

    This next phase will include the main Chateaux with adjoining Chapel , the Farmers House , Pigsty, Barn and interior dividing wall. These items will cover half the total area of the complex.

    The first of these items to be released will be the Chateaux and Chapel, The Masters of which are at the moulding stage and will be released in September.

    The rest of the items will be released on the run up to Christmas.
    I did intend to complete the whole complex including the Great Barn , East side outbuildings and the North Gate by this year but now these items will be postponed until after Christmas and into 2016.

    I am also in the process of having my web site updated with hopefully more content .

    If anyone who has been contemplating acquiring the Hougoumont full complex could e-mail me direct at sales@jgminiatures.com just to register their interest it would be most helpful for me to estimate quantities and production timings.

    Many thanks and Happy collecting

    John

    Thanks Robin, yes been a long time ,my original idea was to get the Whole of the Hougoumont farm finished for 2015 for the anniversary of the battle , however circumstances do not always permit .
    You may not know I am basically a one man operation with one part time employee - not a large manufacturer with outworkers, anyway no more excuses the models are on their way , I hope they meet your expectations , photos will follow when the first production piece is finished .

    Fantastic addition, the tower and chateau roof come off which allows figures to be placed at windows. Really delighted with this, a fitting piece for the previously released South gate. John is very talented to say the least., Robin.

    Robin...you must be delighted to have all these buildings together...they seem really versatile and lend to so many series...your pictures are awesome as your collections really compliment the buildings...

    John...the buildings are really attractive...you did an excellent job as I'm sure completing this was a monstrous undertaking...
