The postage rate for International Priority Mail is $35.00 for all Overseas orders weighing up to 4 pounds/1.8 kilos.

Obviously, some customers might rightly balk at paying such rates for items costing much less, for the most reliable delivery of goods to our Overseas customers. A possible solution may be to order more than $35.00 worth of products as the same price will cover at least that much, and frequently considerably more.

Consequently, TVAG offers customers the choice between Priority Mail and the less expensive--but slower and less reliable--First Class Mail. The latter is based upon total weight of an order, and sometimes the physical size of the package required, so cannot be determined until an order is ready to ship.

When placing International orders, no shipping costs will be indicated, but you will be contacted by TVAG with your options, including at least an approximation of the price of First Class Mail. Payment may be made via PayPal for the chosen postage rate, or be Invoiced via the same service prior to shipment.

As it is TVAG's policy not to profit from postage at any price, the choice is fairly that of the customer.

About What's Going On In The Background Here

September, 2017

Gone To See The Elephant

I can barely believe this one myself, but after some NINE YEARS of research, writing,re-writing, and countless diversions, the ms for this work is finally complete!

Prior to publication, TVAG will offer another subscription to raise cash for printing and mailing of copies, and as before, there will be a pre-publication discount price. However, a new wrinkle will an alternative offer as well. For those willing to pay the actual cover price as part of the subscription, a free set of 15mm castings of Mexican-American War generals Zachary Taylor, Winfield Scott, and Ol' Santy Anny hisse'f on horseback will be sent to the buyers. There will only 20 sets available, so they'll be "first come, first served."

These figures are part of the recently completed 15mm Special Mexican Army range to complement the optional rules in GTSTE. Besides the Three Generals, the range will include a pack of Soldaderas, Priests & Processional, Mexican Military Band, and Military Health Corps field hospital. The original sculpts have been completed and are going in to have master and production molds made ASAP. The plan is to release the printed rule books and Graphic Supplement at the same time as the miniatures, and that is supposed to happen by early October this year.

More details of the Subscription and other unique features of the GTSTE system will follow and be promoted through The Miniatures Page and elsewhere.

Splendid Little Warriors

The formal restock of "Rough Riders!" (RR!) and initial stocks of the "Perdicaris Alive or Raisuli Dead!" (PAORD) 15mm ranges has taken far longer than anticipated, but are now one new mold cutting away from completion. Both ranges will be formally announced by early October.

After that, the plan is to return the Rajah Brooke range of 15mm castings for use with The Kris And The Flame, the rules for which will also be re-released at that time. All but one or two new sculpts for this range are in hand and ready to go into new production molds, and everything will be released at once. This will include the original Malay, Ilunan, and Chinese Pirates, Dyaks, and Royal Navy sailors and landing parties. A range of card stock ship models has long been completed and will be released with the figures and rules. New war canoe and other models cast in either metal or resin will be coming out ASAP to provide all accessories for the amphibious actions TKATF provides.

Next, the old 25mm range of figures for Knights of The Pacific Northwest will return.Inuits, Tlingkits, and Russians ("Oh My!") will once again rock 'n roll with each other off the Alaskan Coasts, this time with some new additions, and an updated set of the rules.

There are so many more 25mm Colonial ranges to bring back, they're too many to list here, but it appears the logjam faced that faced the RR! and PAORD ranges has broken, and now the flow of old and new ranges can begin!


And now, we return you to the dance portion of our broadcast....
