Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause

February 25th 2003

For those people like me who like 'Whites' of pieces then I will be doing a few updates over the next few days with various pieces as unpainted whites, I meant to add these last year but time got the better of me.

The 'white' for EN2084 If The Cap Fits is a very interesting one as it shows how much work is needed to even a small piece before it goes to the painters, well worth checking out even if you're not interested in the 'Snappa' figures

March 29th 2003

OK I know things have been quiet on here after a mad rush of updates but I have big plans for two new sections in Mid April so it may be quiet for a little bit longer, please be patient, it will be worth it I promise.

April 4th 2003

(Enchantica section) - Unexpected update this but I now have photo's of the latest releases that I've been told should be on their way to the shops now!

April 15th 2003

(Verbum section) - Pages updated for Sunburst, Moonstruck and Starlight, I have added photos of the production pieces for all 3 pieces so you can now compare the differences with the U.S. tour & production pieces.

That means that there is 3 pages per piece, one with the production piece, one with the tour piece and one with the white and translucent resin pieces

April 21st 2003

One new section is coming in the next few days (i'm just waiting for a few finishing details) so as a stop gap heres a mini update

(Enchantica section) - EN2048 Bledderag - photos of a master for this piece added

April 25th 2003

(Fables Section) - Yes you read that right, at long last the Fables section is up and running, there are still a few gaps (mainly release and retirement dates) but it is as near as I can get it for now - if anyone can help fill anymore gaps please let me know

I would like to thank fellow collectors Jo & Del Nutting for allowing me to visit them and take photos of their collection and for their help to fill in any gaps I had with information in this new section, CLICK HERE TO VIEW

I've also updated Andrew Hull's profile with a picture of a selection of his Natures Sports figures that he did for HSC

(The main opening page has been slightly updated too, I've put links to all the non-Andrew Bill sections in a second book instead of separate just like the Enchantica and verbuM Magus links)

April 28th 2003

(Faeries Section) - Who would have believed it? only 3 days after the Fables section is complete, I work like a loony and complete the Faeries section too!! I was planning to get this section done for next weekend but I got a bit carried away so it's ready for your viewing pleasure now.

Again I would like to thank fellow collectors Jo & Del Nutting for allowing me to visit them and take photos of their collection and for their help to fill in any gaps I had with information in this new section, CLICK HERE TO VIEW

That's it all the major sections are finally up, all I have to do now is maintain and keep the rest of this site up to date

May 7th 2003

In a bid to catch up with the Enchantica pieces that I'm missing from last year due to family problems I'm slowly going to start buying the pieces and add photo's over time, this small update is the start of that process, more will follow over the next couple of weeks.

I'm also working on improving one of the Enchantica sections that I've never been happy with, I feel that the section doesn't have enough detailed information and believe me it will be 100% better - which section? well you will have to wait and see :o)

EN2313 Saalemnok - complete with pictures of that awful pattern on the back of the wings

EN2364 Gremba - with information about the 2 swords, also 2nd page added to include photo's of a 'White' of Gremba

May 11th 2003


I have moved this update page section onto this main page and the old update page will just be used as an archive for all site updates since September 2001 (when the site opened)
 

May 12th 2003

(Enchantica section) - I forgot to add details of the character names for a couple of pieces:

EN2366 Summoning of Ethra'Kall - (ETHRA'KALL (Dragon), TOLKENAR (Wizard))
EN2367 Adventurers - (DANSKAMERE (Wizard) TRYSKAAL (Dragon))

May 13th 2003

(Enchantica section) - Here's a treat for all those people who have never seen the Enchantica Collectors Club Newsletters, I have been given permission by Ian Johnson and the legal department at Royal Doulton to put all the 32 Newsletters on this site in Adobe Acrobat pdf format. Go to the Newsletters Page and click on any of the pictures to view any of the newsletters in full.

I've been wanting to get this section running ever since I started this site in 2001 but I could never get a reply from RD on the legal side of things, but since Ian Johnson took control of the resin side of RD things have improved. It's took a long time to complete the scanning of every issue but I think it's worth it, I hope you do too

There are still a few things I want to do to this section like a brief index about whats in each newsletter but I will leave it as it is for now.

If you don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader click the picture to download a free copy of it

-------------------------------

EN2366 Summoning of Ethra'Kall - I've corrected the height of this piece, for some reason the official site and the 32nd Newsletter state that it is 35cm but it's actually just short of 24cm - that will teach me to measure the new stuff intead of taking official info as correct! (thanks to Adrian Donati for noticing that 35cm was wrong)

May 15th 2003

Other Ranges - I've decided to add this new section that I will add to over time but I won't be doing full catalogues of any of the ranges, I will just post pictures of a few selected pieces from various other fantasy ranges that have nothing to do with Enchantica or Andrew Bill, don't expect regular updates to this section but I just wanted to add a Dragon Table that I have just bought for now.

Links Page updated, 'Franklin Mint' removed as I no longer want to promote a company with no customer relations what-so-ever and I've added 'Collectables Ltd', they are a great UK based Enchantica stockist

May 16th 2003

(Enchantica section) - Photos added of EN2365 Throstle

May 23rd 2003

Genesis Creation Ltd - Yes, I said that the new 'other ranges' sections wouldn't have full catalogues but I decided that just one section would be pretty large, I've added a section dedicated to Carol Lynn Pennys' Genesis ranges which includes the Dragonets, Draglets & Nesslets, Gargoyles, Castles and Geomites. These were the first fantasy figures I ever collected are they are to blame for my whole dragon obsession. I think that the large Bookends from the Dragonets range are the finest fantasy bookends ever created (that's my personal opinion you understand).

Link also added to Links Page for Carol Lynn Pennys' website with her new work 'Mohawk Masters'

June 2nd 2003

(Enchantica section) - Some of the silver Jewellery by Kingfisher Galleries added, the rest will be added in a couple of weeks.

If you want to buy some of these pieces I have put up a jewellery for sale page in the new For Sale pages section where you can buy them. buy now while they are at this price as this could be your last chance before they become really expensive

I have decided to have a permanent For Sale Section but this will only be for very special pieces, if you want to sell anything out of the ordinary like special paint trial pieces or very rare pieces then this will be the place to advertise it (or buy it ;o)) it is not for people just selling the odd standard piece or their collections

June 8th 2003

(Enchantica section) - For Sale Section updated slightly, photos of the Dragon & Wizard Pendants changed for ones taken by the seller also the Snowthorn Brooch is now SOLD OUT but he does have another Non-Enchantica brooch by the same people and in the same style as Snowthorn (only better)

Important Notice

I have a lot of things going of in my life right now and I'm changing a lot of things, I'm not having much to do with anything Dragon related at the moment hence the lack of updates, I have loads of stuff queued up ready for updates but I've not been in the mood, so please bear with me while I concentrate on getting my life the way I want it at last!

Please be aware that this may be the end of this site as I'm moving on with my life and as this site takes a considerable amount of my time to maintain, it could well be a casualty in my changing life.

Itís been fun doing it and Iíve enjoyed the response the site has received but there comes a time when you have to move on and leave things behind.

You never know, I may continue with the site in a month or so but at the moment itís not likely

August 13th 2003

(Enchantica section) - Photos added of EN2379 Rhazgor

-----------------------------------

Follow on Notice

A decision regarding this site has been made.

The site is being semi-mothballed, I will occasionally do updates when I feel like it or when I feel it is necessary but I have other things to keep me busy, I hope that you understand that I pay for the web space for this site (it's not freespace and neither is it sponsored by Royal Doulton or the Dragonsite in anyway) and if I decide to close the site altogether it is because I have decided that the site has run it's course and that the cost of keeping the site open is not worth it anymore for a site I don't update anymore!

I would like to thank all those who emailed me or left messages on other chat forums. those that emailed me will be contacted soon

Please bear with me through this

There is still a good chance that the site will continue and I will get my interest back but for now the updates won't be as regular as they used to be (but there will still be updates)

September 12th 2003

For Sale page updated

Two more lists added of collectors who wish to sell there enchantica collections

Please contact the collectors direct and don't get in touch with me as I have no control over the sales.
