Heroics & Ros is on the move, I have owned the company of 9 years now and in that time we have nearly quadrupled in size, which is great but we have been steadily out growing our current production capacity. We have been looking for a new location and now that opportunity has occurred but it has come about rather quickly.

In order to move we will have to shut production so, we will be closing for new orders from the 18th of January. We will complete all order placed before that date then start the task of moving thousands of moulds, equipment and stock. So if there is anything you "really need" before the end of February please order as soon as you can, if you can pass this on to anyone you thing might be interested it would be helpful
I am not sure how long the move will take as it won't start until we have shipped all outstanding orders which is clearly an unknown quantity.

But I am hope we can complete this in about a month and aim to reopen around 22nd February.

I am sorry for the short notice but it has been complicated to arrange and only now do we have confirmation of the availability.

Thanks you for all your support over the last 9 years and we have lots of new models ready for release once we are open again and just maybe even some more pictures 😀😀

Hope the move goes smoothly, or as smoothly as is possible for such an involved project. A lot of hard work ahead and a lot of heavy lifting – take care of your back.

Nice! This is how it's done. Notify people of your business situation. There wouldn't be any complaints in the Consumer Affairs Board if everyone did this.

Hope it all goes smoothly, Andy. Best wishes.

Move Update
Thanks for all the enquires about when we will be back up and running, it's nice to know you miss us 😊. The move has taken longer than we hoped mainly due to the amount of orders we received prior to the move. We had to cast everything before we could start the factory relocation which meant we have had to delay reopening.
We have now moved our moulds and are testing the new casting equipment. We need to sort out the stock and then hopefully we will be ready for business in our new home.
I plan to reopen the web shop on Monday 4th March, this however will be a limited reopening. We are checking stock and moulds by range and period so as this is completed, they will become available on the web shop. I don't want to be in a position where we have accepted an order but can't be sure of being able to make it, currently there are over 4000 lines in our web shop so this is a big task.
I am sorry for the delay and gradual reopening but I wanted the shop back on line so we can use the news section to communicate and it makes sense to have a gradual opening in case we have any unforeseen problems in the new factory.
Thank you very much for your understanding with the delays to orders placed before we closed and the patience shown by you all waiting to place new ones. In the long term this is a really good opportunity for us as we now have access to more metal types, extra casting machines and the space to move. In addition, we can use the services of more trained casters and mould makers, this should allow us to release many of the models and figures you have seen glimpse of or heard about.

Once again, Many Thanks

Hi all just a quick update on the progress of getting the shop fully back on line. We now have the Coast Forces 1/600th range there plus from the 1/300th range, the Ships and Planes and Railway. We have now just add all the new style figure both WW2 and 1980's along with the LRDG & Para range. I hope I will get WW2 on line tomorrow and the "modern range" on line over the weekend. Sorry it has taken longer than hope but we have been busy and on top of that I got a rather horrible stomach bug so no working at 100%. The final ranges to be added with be all other figures and I hope they will be on next week 😀😀

Just noticed that the whole of the H & R range is back on the website.
