Newsletters – do you want them or need them?

Sep 10th, 2009 | By | Category: Scuttlebutt

Over on our main handicrafts ecommerce site, we’re building a powerful new newsletter server. It set me thinking about whether or not we need one here at the Long Range Logistics Forward Post and Depot. What’s your thoughts? Would you like us to begin a newsletter service? What would you like us to include in […]



LRL August Sale & Games Room Clear-out

Aug 3rd, 2009 | By | Category: Scuttlebutt, Top News

Week 1 – Battlefront Flames of War packs. As is usual, sometime every summer I have a big clear out from all my personal armies, incomplete projects, and the stuff I bought on a whim, then never did anything with.  If I didn’t do this, I’d never have space (or money) for my winter buying […]

Mar 20th, 2009 | By | Category: Scuttlebutt, Top News

The big move in January completed successfully.  We’re now entrenched in the big house with the business operating from the large extension at the front. The family certainly appreciates the extra space, and the business sorely needed it’s own premises and facilities.  The new unified moulding and casting room is ready for action, but as […]

Jan 15th, 2009 | By | Category: Scuttlebutt, Top News

Long Range Logistics are on the move, but not going very far – just out from the centre of town to the “western front” on the mountain footslopes. Between now and the end of January, we’re relocating to a new home, which gives us a lot more space (including a garden almost large enough to […]

90 Years – Observed from the Orient

Nov 11th, 2008 | By | Category: Scuttlebutt


Today, for the first time in several years, I watched the BBC World transmission of the Armistice Day Remembrance at The Cenotaph in London. Having not watched it for so long, it invoked several disparate feelings.



Greetings & Felicitations

Ah-ha! You’ve found us and we’re not ready for you yet 🙁 Don’t worry, we’re working flat out on this bit of the site, and it should be ready within a few days.  We’ve already built our new webstore which will be accessible from here – we just have to do some cross-integration and sort […]
