I recently purchased some old 15mm Battle Honors minis for a fellow TMPer. They are part of the Modern US Advancing 16100 set which has about 25 figures in it (its a plastic blister with a blue foam cushion). The set appears to have almost everything: riflemen, M203 grenadiers, M60 MGs, and even a RTO and an officer. But no SAW. Granted I don't need the SAW if I'm doing an early 80s unit, but I was wondering if there are more troops to this line. I don't see them on the Old Glory 15s site so I don't think that they are still around. Is there someone who is still casting them? They aren't great sculpts by current standards but they are servicable. I would like to see another set with maybe heavy weapons or just different poses to go with them.

Are there more out there?

They are the old Quality Castings range that was manufactured under the Battle Honours banner for a while. Quality Castings are still available from Old Glory 15s (not to be confused with Old Glory Corp).

IIRC the Battle Honors moderns are really Quality Castings and are intended to depict '80s so no, no SAW.

Thanks guys. Now here's another question:

Are they the same miniatures that are in the Old Glory Command Decision line?

No.

When Old Glory sold off its original 15mm ranges, it kept the Command Decision line as part of the original Old Glory company.

The amputated 15mm ranges became a new company called 'Old Glory 15s'.

Old Glory 15s then bought up other ranges, including Quality Castings 15mm Modern & WW2 ranges. These models therefore have nothing at all to do with the original Old Glory company or Command Decision range.

Note that the Old Glory 15s/Quality Castings range were also sold under the Battle Honours label for a time.

Note also that most of the Command Decision range is also manufactured by Skytrex in the UK (the Command Decision range was originally marketed by both Skytrex and Old Glory. They have now gone their separate ways, but the original models are available from both companies).

Excellent! Thanks Mark!
