SONS OF THE SOUTH WAVE
ONE!!!!!

March 20, 2007

Dear Fellow Collector,

We have just received the first advance shipment of the much talked about
& long awaited “Sons of the South” American Civil War sets. I am extremely
proud of this new range of Civil War figures. Without any doubt, I can assert
that this range sets a new standard for us and is an exciting step forward
from our already highly popular range of Civil War figures which have
depicted the "Late Unpleasantness Between the States" for the past seven
years.. As great as our previous Civil War figures have been, THESE take
things to the next level......

These stalwart fellows look more like living, breathing warriors than they do
toy soldiers. My intention was to create the utmost in realism with this range
and make the collector feel as though you 'are there' just moments before
the Sons of the South crash into the Union line. Intensity, determination,
pride and self assuredness is amazingly 'written' onto the faces and the
body language of these figures.....as is pain, when the inevitable casualties
occur.. These gentlemen will give their all for Master Robert and their
beloved South.

These sets are so unique that they all have been labeled as "Signature
Sets" and make their appearance in deluxe new packaging. When you hold
these fellows they might at first seem more substantial than usual due to the
extra 'heft' of the pewter in the larger than usual bases/stands. (We've
received lots of requests -ever since our Rangers/Indians series was
released-- that we increase the size & detail of the bases/stands of all of
our other ranges.....we've listened.)

Seven new sets numbered SOS-002 through SOS -008 are in the
warehouse. The office is calling to confirm pre-orders first and then will
commence general shipping . If you've been waiting for these please call or
email immediately as this advance shipment will sell out within the next 10
days (and then it may be over a month or more until the next batch arrives).

These sets are the first seven of 16 new ACW sets which were premiered in
prototype form at OTSN and created a general frenzy due to the incredible
sculpting, enhanced painting and larger figure stands/bases.

These sets are ALL 'fine pewter' (not less expensive white metal alloys used
by many in the toy soldier world). Additional 'waves' of this series will have
hand to hand sets and plenty of Yankee opponents.

The prices for these sets are slightly higher than what we've charged for
past ACW offerings due to the additional pewter used, a more intricate level
of painting & the amazing sculpting .... resulting in heretofore unseen
animation and action.

All seven sets portray tanned, weathered (sometimes grizzled & dirty), and
weary Confederate veterans in action...in the midst of any number of
historic charges. Most collectors who see these immediately conjure up
images of the final moments of Pickett's Charge.
