I tried to visit their site today in order to provide a link to a possibly interested party and could not find them anywhere.

Does anyone know if they have definitively changed their name, or simply taken the "L Pill?"

I know all about the founder's retirement years ago, and his son taking over. I know that the MAW range was dropped, and then brought back. What I don't know is if these wonderful figures (and so many others) are now one with Nineveh and Tyre?

Please post here for the sake of others, but a PM will be welcome just the same.

I sent the son an email a month or two ago and never received a response.

There was a website and some guy in California has the line. I don't think he is producing them. He had told someone that contacted him he could make an order for them. I don't know if that happened or not, that was months ago. His website is gone so that is not a good sign….

There was a facebook page wasn't there?

I put a message on it a month or so ago, but I don't believe anyone has responded.

It's been longer than I thought. I emailed Kriskaonis a question about production on June 5th, but never received an answer.

Had a lot of trouble getting orders from the owner.(Kriskaonis). His web site came up and down twice in the last couple of years. Sad, because it is a nice line of miniatures. Alternative would be Newline Design or SHQ.

I must admit the situation doesn't sound good, or especially hopeful.

If anyone can add anything more to this thread, it would be greatly appreciated.

In August 2017 I placed an order for Mexican American War Mexican Limbers and Oxen, as well as several more American Limbers and Caissons, with the "new" Musket Miniatures under the then-new management of Kris Kaonis. Kris filled the order in November 2017, and he and I enjoyed a brief exchange of emails on the subject of MAW figures as well as a proposal from me that if he were ever to do a range of 15mm Mexican Revolution figures, I would purchase a collection of those.

I sent him an email in January 2018 that was not answered, and I sent another in April 2018 saying that I was sorry to see on his website that he had retired the 15mm Mexican American War range as well as the 15mm and 25mm American Revolution ranges. I never heard back from the April email either.

It's sad to think that these fine figures are no longer available. My collection of 15mm Mexican American War figures is mostly from Musket Miniatures, as is my collection of 15mm American Revolution figures. Luckily both collections are essentially complete, with the last items that I needed were the Mexican Oxen limbers and the additional American limbers and caissons for my MAW collection.

Now if someone were to produce some 15mm Mexican Revolution figures, I might have to go for those!
