About this site
This is now an on-line catalogue, and I no longer make direct sales.
I also occasionally post news on Facebook as ‘Roger Saunders’.
The address for email is email@example.com - but please explore this website before emailing any questions. Most of the queries I get are already answered somewhere on the website!
Please note that search engines and the preferences stored on your computer may direct you to the old and outdated site at Greenwich Gateway (the homepage picture on that version shows me in a suit at the top and is dated 2012).
For reasons too complicated to explain we cannot close down this ‘zombie’ site.
Please be certain to key in: www.hornetandwolf.com to find the authentic site.

There are still a few models out there in an earlier yellow resin instead of the usual grey. The colour was changed temporarily for supply reasons and the quality is the same. The yellow resin is a similar colour to the Hornet packs, and has the usual Hornet matt surface.
It seems that every time I get our header packs printed the colour or card changes. This annoys the hell out of me but there is little that can be done – it’s just one of those things (variations in ink, printing presses, colour blind operators, card textures and now a new print contractor as well!). So far as I am aware, the copyists haven’t attempted to reproduce the packs so mismatched header cards just signal different print batches.
Beware of scams used by ‘pirate’ copyists, who are causing real manufacturers many problems. Pirates will often use pictures of the genuine product, sometimes even downloading them from their victim’s own website, but will actually sell knocked off inferior copies. At least one pirate says his product is genuine, but claims that somehow all the packaging has been lost or damaged. For more snarls about piracy click on the Piracy link.
