So what happened to Parroom Station? I must have been asleep at the wheel or something .. Did they fold up?? where did they go?? is there any NEWS?

Most of their stuff was purchased by Lon at Brigade Games if I recall correctly.

Nope. Unfortunately there was a disagreement about how the figures should be handled so Bob took them away from Lon and Brigade. Or Lon just stopped carrying them. Or something. Regardless they are no longer available at the present time.

Which is very sad.

I believe Lon had a business agreement that is no longer in effect; he no longer produces or sells the line. I don't know if Lon has the molds, or Bob has the molds, but no one is producing them.

So suggestions for alternatives .. Red planet would be a first choice but their blog is convoluted at best I see no link to purchace

What are you trying to put together?

Rafm has a Space 1889 line (or something like that). I don't know if this line is composed of smaller 25s -- as opposed to 28s --so I don't know if they will mix with what you have.

Someone on TMP uses Dark Elves for Martians. I have contemplated using Incas or Aztecs for the same.

I like the Dead Earth line from Bronze Age Miniatures:

A bit pricy but tin man minis has "not Barsoom", miniatures.

RAFM are "true 25mm" figures.
However, this is one of those "scale independent" ranges.
Could it be that (to use the favorite phrase of UFO "theorists") they are small Martians compared to 28mm humans?
Or are they large Martians compared to 18mm or 20mm humans?

We haven't sold them though since the close out in the Spring. The molds were returned to Bob. Everything was settled.

Thanx everyone.. I have some RAFM They are good and fit with Perry Bros and Foundry Victorians. As you say Winston Its relative to your version of Martians. The PS Martians were a nice fit as well. with many more poses. Lacking them will be hard to fill in my float crews.. Ill check Tin Minis. The bronze age are beautiful and BIG// But there again Salt to flavor ..
Your all champs for answering ..
