    I don’t want to sound overly nationalistic, but what figure companies in the US are still operating? I like encouraging my hobby in my native country. I like avoiding paying 20% to 50% in shipping. But besides Old Glory 25s (with whom I have a love/hate relationship) and Good Ground/Cracker Line Miniatures, there simply aren’t many companies in the US making anything in which I’m interested. I tend to tinker in periods, purchase in drips and drabs. No one’s going to make a living from my purchases. International shipping isn’t too odious if you’re buying large lots, but for me they make absolutely no sense.

    What’s a ‘merican ‘sposed to do iff’n they’s want’n hifalutin’ 25/28mm ancients?

    Can anyone add to my list of American companies I can support? Or maybe even distributors who carry fairly large inventories? I need to strike while the fires of enthusiasm are hot and an extra bit of spare cash is on hand.

    One of my faves is Eureka USA. Not much for 25/28mm ancients.

    I also like Khurasan, but they are nearly 100% 15mm.

    Lots of good suggestions here. Thank you all.

    I’ve purchased from Scale Creep several times, though I didn’t realize Mark carried First Corps stuff. Hmmmm.

    I think Sargent Major is down for the count. On Facebook he mentions he’s been having some health issues and it looks like the business is now for sale. I really liked the Vendel figures I got when it was still Vendel.


    @Cerdic
    , is there a way to sort your comprehensive list by country or location? It’s a great list. I found several temptations. Oh, look, BTD Assyrians are on sale for the next 57 hours. SHINEY!

    Oh, I really hope these ranges will find a new home. I put off ordering from Sgt Major because they were outside Europe. Evidently I’ve now left it for too long

    Sadly, no. But I can add the idea to my ‘to do’ list!
