Navwar and Heroics and Ros

Following on from my recent decision to offload my various collection of Axis and Allies: War at Sea models I have been busy checking out the various manufacturers of 1/3000th kit, namely Skytrex and Navwar. Imagine my surprise then, when I noticed on the Navwar website that they are now no longer producing Heroics and Ros 1/300th figures and vehicles. The link below has all the details and the figures are not disappearing off the face of the planet - merely moving to a new manufacturer.

The link is as follows: http://www.navwar.co.uk/nav/

Heroics and Ros were, I believe, the first company to produce 6mm figures and vehicles and their range was (and still is) truly enormous. I hope this means then that Navwar can concentrate on more naval stuff as I for one will need to spend some serious cash there!

Yes, the end of an Era in many ways, but hopefully it will allow each company to concentrate on what they do best - further to this, Heroics & Ros is also about to merge with the 1/300 manufacturer Armstrong Miniatures - to create a new influx of much more detailed sculpts....

Hi SoS,

As you rightly say - hopefully we will reap the benefit of the 'specialisation' in due course. I have always liked 6mm as a scale and used to play moderns using H and R many years ago. Some of their later figure ranges were absolutely gorgeous - ACW, ECW, WoTR and Malburians especially.

All the best,
