This is a brief guide to the Del Prado partwork - Cavalry Through The Ages. This subscription started in the UK in August 2007. My guide is aimed at UK collectors who may be interested and overseas collectors who may not have such easy access to information or figures. My interest is both personal and professional as I collect Del Prado figures as a hobby and I also sell them in my eBay toy soldier store: Drum & Flag
First Uploaded: 08/07. Last Updated: 02/07/09 - Received letter from Del Prado saying they have moved Customer Service. So it could be this series kicks back into life having not received anything for sometime?
Following on from their excellent previous toy soldier collections Del Prado's latest offering is Cavalry Through The Ages. From the literature I have seen so far this will be a three phase collection. In the first phase new 1:30 scale cavalry figures will be offered covering periods not previously touched by other collections. Phases 2 & 3 will be reissues of some/all of the Napoleonic and Medieval figures already released in the Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars and Medieval Warriors series. Osprey booklets will once again be presented with each figure. UK subscribers are offered a model PzIV and a pocket watch as free gifts when signing up for the series.
