Okay, sounds good.
Sorry if I seemed to be argumentative. :D

being old and being fucked up are different things, merely added to that sentence to strengthen the contumely, and being old is not in itself a bad thing.

I think you misunderstood HIS meaning. I believe he was aiming for "These are crap figures and on an unlikeable subject - why would someone drag these out and start remaking them now? after 30 years??'

Somebody should notify the WHO, Blanchette Syndrome is spreading.

To use your Trump example:

'Who is even voting for this idiot?
Even if Trump's policies were you're thing, he's old and nobody likes tall men these days.'

The age is clearly the problem. The policies are put to one side, as was the nature of the models, the emphasis is on the age and the scale.

Perhaps he meant what you think - it's not what he wrote.

And as we've seen the age of a figure is not necessarily a problem


I don't feel like arguing about it. I didn't read what he said as meaning 'old = bad' Let's all move on. :)

I find the most offensive thing about them is their utter shiteness. Shite sculpts, shite casts, shite paint jobs. Shite.

They have a certain old-school charm, like a Razzle-Stack, or that movie you made with your wife when Digital Cameras were first a thing. But like them, they are best remembered with an amused smile rather than put back on sale with a front-page advertisement on a website otherwise renowned for its family friendly values and keen support for the rights of women, minorities and the oppressed people of the world.

Rather than re-issuing them, they should have offered the molds to Annie Norman. she would have taken their hand off.

I didn't say anything about their age, only their shiteness.

If they were brand new yesterday they'd still be shite.

There are several ranges still sold by Foundry, including the ones posted by Bronny, that are that old and still really rather good. They are smaller than most modern figures but, with multiple different forces available, that doesn't really matter. AB figures were founded in 1990 and the 15mm Napoleonics they produced then are still among the best available. There must be others.


Some of the Ral Partha sculpts from the 80s are still outstanding, as were the Metal Magic Asterix range. Some of the early Citadel stuff was excellent, and I am rather partial to the Joseph Ochmann 15mm sculpts that have variously, been sold by Gladiator, Black Hat, Metal Magic and others since the mid 80s.

Age is no bar to quality though in general, the quality has improved over time. There were some truly hideous figures being sold 30 years ago, (and in some cases are still sold).

I finished some Ral Partha Etruscan heavy cavalry just this evening. Nice clean and well proportioned sculpts.
Some of the Hinchliffe(?) Greek heavy cavalry I painted alongside the Ral Partha figures have aged very badly, but I needed them to round out the unit.

There are still some gems in amongst the older sculpts, and I'm happy to use 25mm figures. If I was starting from scratch nowadays I would be using the bigger 28mm figures.
