Announced on FB today that Ral Partha Europe has purchased the Dritical Mass Games line, and will be re-inroducing the line beginning May/June of this year.

Looks like I'll be able to buy some Astagar after all. :)

That is good news.

I need about a battalion of their stuff, at 1:1 ratio of minis to "real" vehicles.

Cool, no suprise that someone took on the range, and RPE, while they had 15mm fantasy (I wasn't aware just how big the demonworld range was) they had no 15mm sci-fi, so probably a good buy for them.

YES!

RPE is a great company and they will do a great job. Demonworld is a great range as well!

Really glad to hear this.

Thanks chaps, we're pretty excited about this.
I'll do a proper news release when we're further along with things :-)

Does their mean they'll be produced in Europe? Looking towards starting 15mm in a year or three, and need to plan for shipping costs.

ETA Checked for myself, and while shipping from the UK will hurt, it's not terrible. Looking forward to it!

That is great news, couldn't think of a better home for this great line.
I hope it does well for them.

Glad to hear this!

Glad for CMG to get a bit more $$ out of the ranges, and glad for RPE to get some 15mm scifi.

NV, CM was always out of the UK, or so I thought.

Still, RPE wasn't too painful the one time I tried awhile ago.

Mind you, Royal Mail seems to be getting more and more painful of late, though my last from Northstar was quite alright.

Congrats to RPE – I hope you will promote this line with the occasional sale.

Best regards,

RPE does have a small range of 15mm sci-fi already, that many may have overlooked:

I placed a small order for some Spugs and Ga'Nesh a couple of months ago, and the shipping costs were reasonable IIRC.

Yeeeha! Great news. CM was one of the best 15mm ranges available.

Nice to see individual casts available, but price per cast seems a little steep.
