In order to take my mind off the present misery that is living in the UK, I started sorting through some boxes of old figures. They had been in storage for many years and among them were some figures I have had since the 1970's. I came across a set of "Bugle and Guidon" 30mm figures from their Custer Line. There are 6 standing figures of US cavalry from the 1870 period, with 2 dead and 2 dead horses, plus a whole lot of spare rifles, pistols, saddles etc.
I have tried looking on line but I coldn't find anything about this line, just a few references to Bugle and Guidon going out of business years ago. Any information on these figures would be much appreciated, as I would like to know if it is worth putting them up for sale or should I just put them back in storage and leave my kids to find them when I'm gone.
Many thanks
Rob

See TMPer Garryowen's post here:

He might have more history for you.

The Heritage entry in the Manufacturers Directory shows the range:

You'd have to ask if they're still available:

I know for a fact that Monarch Miniatures of NY has the 54 mm molds and that he produces the line along with several other "dead" lines. I do not know if he has the 30 mm molds.
I am sure you can track him down and find out. I do know that he lives in Queens in NYC and that he has a table at the Long Island Military Miniature show in Freeport, Long Island.

You can probably contact them for his information.

Thanks guys, I must have missed the connections. So many of the old companies have gone since I started collecting back in the days when I still had hair and a waistline. It will be good to try and track these leads down. Thanks again for all your help.
