Has anyone ordered and received anything from Sgt Major Miniatures recently?

I wanted to order something and had a question out to them.

I created an account and received what I assume is an automated reply.

I sent them an email with a question a few days ago and have heard no reply. They even seem to invite contact in their 'about us' section.

I even called the phone number this morning to receive a message that the user never set up their voicemail.

Anyone know anything? Are they on vacation, health problems, out of business?

I cancelled their advertising for non-payment. Haven't been able to reach them since 2015. frown

He was trying to sell everything so not sure if he would be selling any figures

I thought that Andy was sick for a while. I don't know his current situation. I hope he's OK.

Andy announced last month he was shutting down and looking to sell all his molds.

Man, I just placed an order with him three days ago. I wish I had seen this sooner.

Alex, I just met with him Tuesday night while in his area for work. He is working the equivalent of 2 full time jobs right now, so I am sure he is swamped.

Yes he is working on selling the business as others have mentioned. I also have an order in with him that he is planning on filling.

I will let him know about your inquiry so he will check on your message.

Hey, I have an order pending with him as well…. & lots of unanswered emails, facebook messages, & unreturned phone calls.

Was thinking of an order myself.

He did state in his post announcing the sale that he would continue to fill orders until the lines sold.

Thanks for the information folks! I'll keep trying. In the meantime does anyone know how tall the 28mm dwarves are foot (ground) to eye?

@BTC – Thanks for the Info. I empathize with him and hope everything works out. But if he is not filling orders he really needs to turn the shopping cart off on the website.

@Private Snafu – The dwarves are about 23mm ground to eye.

I too have an order with him since early April. It was agreed he would bring it to Historicon but I have seen he's trying to sell off everything. I was concerned so I tried to reach him. He hasn't answered any calls made at various times during the last 3 weeks. Several messages were left on his site 3 weeks ago but so far no responses. So I guess this will be a mystery to see if the order comes to Historicon.

Thanks FABET01!

It's unfortunate how these things happen. I understand many wargame companies are one man operations, but it would be nice if they demonstrated a little bit more professionalism (and thoughtfulness).

I hope he finally pays his past-due advertising bill. frown

I just hope the moulds don't disappear. I was looking to add more of the ex Venetia Ottomans to my collection, but the import costs etc to the UK are off-putting.

I like some of their 15mm dark age and medieval figures. These used to be owned by QRF. I guess I will have to use Essex for the foreseeable future.
