I am drawing a mental blank. UK company specializing in wargames buildings – not HOVELS – made their products in very hard substance (resin?). Made a wide range of buildings over many periods. HELP!

Gallia?

Do you remember the color resin? Gallia was grey, Grand manner yellow-white.

Thanks everyone. John is the winner – GALLIA! I'd forgotten about Gedemco though. I had a number of their European buildings. Village Green – one of my favorites! I had many pieces which I unfortunately sold. Great stuff. I have some great 20mm European buildings from Grand Manner. I also have some nice Sudan items from PMC. Does anyone know where I could get a listing of Gallia and Gedemco. Thanks everyone for your help. My reason for this posting is I picked up two small desert buildings (2525_ _) and a nice gate tower (25Y04; not sure about "Y") from Ebay a week ago and about four years ago, I passed up a chance to pick up a painted fort with the same gate tower for $150.00 USD. I still kick myself over that. Thanks! Hal (halthinglum@aol.com)

The Gallia colonial fort was excellent.

How about the DRUM. What happened to them?

The drum. Excellent buildings. John Green. Their Spanish 15mm range is now made by SHQ. As seen in pictures of the Peter Pig SCW games put on at shows. I have no clue about the rest of the stuff. When John Green died, the company disappeared very quickly, due to various circumstances. The drum (in Towcester) was a fine shop with great proprietors.

RAGBONES. thanks, however, Warrior Carrie's only the interesting Gallia 15mm figure lines.

Mayhem? Weren't they also in the lineage of the Drum buildings?
