To what I can say, I bought many times from prince august. It's not cheap, it's not fast, sometimes I had to ask specifically when he was still understanding which pieces he had got, but I always received everything with no particular matters. Ask again, and be patient.

Cheers.

Priince August is really hit and miss these days. I don't know if it is because they don't know what they got, the blisters are deteriorated and pieces fall out or a combination of these and other factors.

You're weren't the only one - every order I had from them was missing stuff - didn't help when the invoice showed my entire order too. Still they were quick to rectify it after an email was sent.

I wonder how much they'd want for the whole sh'bang, and let us sort it out???

I happen to pass by PA when I'm on Ireland working. It's VERY tempting to make a detour with my 46 middle aged passengers and check it out. They have a visitors centre and I could probably persuade some of the guests that it was an honest mistake. ^^

In Prince August's defense, I recently received an order in one week's time (I live in western Canada), and everything was there.

I have also had a good run with PA.

I've ordered about 3 times; I received every order complete, and relatively quickly for cross-Atlantic shipping.

I have made two big orders from PA in the past(last year 2009) and had no problems.  All pieces accounted for and the shipping was not to bad.  And for being halfway around the world(sort of) it was shipped pretty quick.

Overall, I highly recommend Prince August and I plan to make another big order this year.

Ordered most of my new army from PA the last year in various waves. So far everything come in complete and without any hassle. Did experience once that something I ordered had run out, but I got a nice note with my package that I could refer to the next time and I got a few extra bucks to buy for. All in all I'm pleased.

I also have had no problems with Prince August. I do make little orders every so often (maybe 10-20 figs) and have had no problems with them at all.

I placed an order on the 6th of may, recieved an invoice on the 10th and the miniatures arrived on the 13th. Order was complete. So I'd have to say I'd order from them again.

According to the twitter of PA there might be a new Warzone page in the making. Would probably be fun to see the end results of that. :)
