Cos I want. :D

Neither Adler nor Baccus do figures for the period I want. Baccus have some I could probably bodge.
I already have a fair number of the H & R and I don't think the alternatives would look right together, so I'll be patient.

Baccus shut down again on 29 March - thought I'd just check to see if what they made would work as a substitute - but apparently no dice ( :oops: sorry).

Go 2mm. They can be anything, and a piece of piss to paint too :)

Already got a load ta.

They've been Napoleonics of different flavours and are currently labouring under coats of blue and grey as ACW types. If I hadn't bought a shed load of H & R Franco-Prussian stuff in the 80s they'd be in blue and darker blue by now.

I don't even like ACW and I've got it in 2mm and 10mm and had 6mm 15mm and 25mm at various times. It's some sort of fucking obsessive compulsive behaviour.

Oh and the aforementioned hair rollers ended up as blue and grey.

I bought a shed load of H&R ECW in the early 80s. I've still got dealer bags of the fucking things somewhere.

Probably. They might have gone to toxic landfill after my last divorce.

H&R back online - sort of.
c1/3 capacity and producing on a rolling programme by period - so modern and (some) WW2 at the moment.
Hope he gets around to what I want soon.

He shut down again on the 16th (for a day or two) because he had so many orders to fill and will move on to the next set of figures - WW2 vehicles, Modern figs, Coastal Force range and Wars of the Roses - when he reopens.
Still shut. :(
He must have his moulds arranged rather oddly or something - WW2 vehicles and Wars of the Roses? Both begin a W I suppose. But why split figures and vehicles?

Baccus open and shut again like - well you pick your own euphemism.
