P.S. Mark T.,
It's been so long I forgot that some of my very first Conversions ever were inspired by Strelets-R Colonial Boer War sets. I copied the link below. A few of the last pictures used the Boer Infantry in Head-Swops and Cavalry as Riding Artillerymen.
After I finished, Strelets-R came out with the British Highlanders 1898-1902. Some day I'd like to update a few of the British Artillerymen with Head-Swops using the really cool Pith Helmets with Neck Curtains. Some day ... It's really a great Range with unlimited potential for new figures. Have fun with your new sets! :-)
GarrisonClay, I checked out the site you linked and postage to the USA raises the price of one box from a reasonable 8,95 Euros to 60,92 Euros! That's a little steep for me! Unless I am doing something wrong, it only offers me one postal option with an exorbitant rate.
Mark. T just write to the shop. Many shops are using postage calculators leading to much too pricey results. From Germany I could sent the Boers as a registered international letter at only 5,50 Euros (worldwide).
Thanks for the tip about contacting the stores, 0nn0. I was wondering about that as I often buy toy soldiers on eBay from Asia with much cheaper postage, many times even free. I was puzzled that European orders would have such expensive shipping rates by comparison.
