"The War of 1812 is a fascinating period and provides great opportunity for miniature war gamers. The armies are perfect for table top battles. They are colorful and offer a wide variety of Uniforms and troop types. In addition due to the recent anniversary there is a abundance of materials out there. I just (nearly finnished) my Niagara 1814 project and am branching out adding more colorful regiments.

I am not sure what the 1/72 figures have to do with the War of 1812. Nonetheless, the year old entry of 'Getting Started" for war gaming the War of 1812 is still an excellent blog entry.

Whatever happened to the 20mm figures for the War of 1812, made in MN, I believe?

The company is Frying Pan & Blanket Amalgamated LLP, a secretive tiny operation in Minnesota that deals entirely via snail mail. Their entry in the TMP manufacturer directory was last updated in 2016 but I have no further intel regarding their status.
