Can anyone tell me if this company is still going and where to obtain their 300th scale figures in the uk.

I just got an order from them. The international shipping rates seem a trifle steep, and they're not exactly fast. I was beginning to suspect they needed to sculpt my artillery first!

That said, I got everything, and was very pleased with the order. I'd order again if need be.

Considered GHQ or Heroics/Ros….. but which is best? Only one way to find out…..

You mean the quality of the miniatures? GHQ by far. Nobody does 6mm better. You definitely pay more, but you get your money's worth.

H&R is cheaper, and sells separately though, so if you only need, say, three Panthers, a Tiger and eleven Pz IVHs, you can order exactly those.

My armour is all GHQ, but I order most of my artillery from H&R. The 105mm Howitzer for example, from GHQ, come in a pack with tows, two guns in firing position and two guns in travel position. I have lots of tows, and don't really want guns in travel position, so I just order exactly what I need from H&R.

Here in the UK you can get @15 H&R vehicles for the price of one GHQ pack. The newer vehicles from H&R are getting closer to GHQ standard. Also GHQ is 1/285 where as H&R is 1/300, but I will use GHQ vehicles/figures where they fill gaps that H&R have in their ranges.
