I know Brigade no longer sells them, and Parroom's site lists weird price codes but no shopping cart. Does anyone know if Mr. Charette is done with these and if so, is anyone else selling them?

I missed the boat on the VSF clockwork soldiers (and I need some oh so badly). Plus there's just so much to like…

Shame if these vanish for good.

Looks that way. It's a bummer because I think he made some of the best VSF soldiers you can find. Luckily I already have several of them.

I'd be curious if this is the case as well. I've been waiting patiently for a while now.

Angry Piper:

I know of a range Victorian Science fiction miniatures from a company called Black Pyramid Games, they have a range of iron men that might work for you.

As long as the moulds are safe and intact there is always hope that someone will take the range on. Not wanting the stir a hornets nest but I don't know why there was a fallout in the first place.

I'm hoping the reason won't restrict a new supplier. If possible it would be better to get them direct from the man himself.

Great range,great sculpts with lots of character and they fit in without to much trouble with other ranges.

Hope we see them back on the market soon.

Thanks, Katwerks, but Mr. Charette's stuff is EXACTLY what I'm looking for.

Those are cool, but a bit blocky for my taste. They look a lot like the .45 Adventure Kroonbots (of which I have plenty).

I appreciate the assistance regardless!

Is there any news????

DLIinVSF Inactive Member11 Jan 2018 3:58 a.m. PST

Not heard anything :(

Heard from a producer or two who was watching the drama from afar, spoke of interest, but faded as the story unfolded.

Just getting started with VSF Martians (of the Space 1899 persuasion) I'd love to buy some of these. The RAFM range is small.

I emailed Bob and he does have some leftovers he was willing to dig out for those of us that HAVE to have them.

TheBeast Supporting Member of TMP20 Jan 2018 3:18 p.m. PST

Crickies, how did you do that?

No, don't put his email here, though if it's listed on a website, a pointer there would be appreciated!

Doug contact the webmaster on the Parroom Station webpage

Yeah, I liked his take on martian sepoy and his not tharks.

DLIinVSF Inactive Member24 Jan 2018 10:29 a.m. PST

Sadly the only UK suppliers dropped the range a while ago.Its a range that has a future if either Bob or a new retailer would give Bob the right deal.

Thanks, Mr. Moore!

Never gave that a thought…
