I've emailed Battleline Miniatures (through their website) a couple of times now and the emails have bounced back both times.

Does anyone know if they are still in business? I sincerely hope so.

Does anyone know of an alternative way of reaching them? I live in the US so a phone call is not practical.

Thanks.

Statement on their website from March 2017:

…We are still here but both of us have been very busy in our other day jobs, as Battleline Miniatures is only a part-time job for us, but we have still been getting orders out. Nearly everything is cast to order these days, so it does take a little longer so I apologise about that…

Thanks. But being busy doesn't explain why emails sent to them through their website are bouncing back.

I don't mind waiting for an answer. I just have no idea if they got my emails in the first place.

I sent an email to the email address listed for them in our Manufacturers Directory, and it has not bounced back so far…

Please let me know if you get a response. TIA.

The one time I emailed back in March them with a couple of questions I got a message back from the system stating that their email server did not like my email address and so had not delivered the message to them.

At the time I just let it go, but apropos this thread I just sent the message again to see what happens this time.

I used the same email as the prior – sales@battleline-miniatures.co.nz

Am curious to see what happens.

I had ordered from them several times a few years ago, was very good service back then. Nice little figures too.

I just heard from Bryan at Battleline Miniatures. Emailing him directly worked. Still don't know why emails send through the website bounced back but he's going to looki into it.

I purchased a Goth army from them several years ago. Very nice figures.

As an update on my post, not only did I get a reply but in lieu of pictures of the miniatures I had inquired about he has offered to send samples.

He also offered to send a couple of chariot horses and a wheel that I had also inquired about as possible additions to a future order.

Now has me curious as to what their Han line looks like as I need to fill out some armies there as well…

Definitely on my list of places to order from.

P.S. I got my TTG Goths from Alternative Armies (to add to some Ebay acquisitions). They were running sales and offering free shipping (as well as being a bit cheaper). Definitely like the figures.
