I understand Alain has passed away sadly, however I was wondering if any European members of the forum know as to the possible whereabouts of the range. Has anybody bought manufacturing rights? I'm after the Byzantine ranges particularly. Any clues or pointers in the right direction, really appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

A few people have queried this but no answers that I'm aware of as yet I'm afraid.

I sincerely hope these wonderful figures aren't lost for good.

Unfortunately these great minis aren't available anymore.

Here in France one can find small second hand lots from time to time but it's quite rare.

This is an interesting YouTube Link from 2019. It is a guy who got a Touller Komnenan Byzantine DBA army and he unpacks it and reviews the figures. Maybe you could get a lead from him? YouTube link
It's called "Unboxing Alain Touller Miniatures 15mm Byzantines" I was fortunate enough to get some before Alain passed away and they are some of my favorite figures! I have quite a few in my Byzantine armies which feature on my Blog Spot. link
Good luck!

I recently bought a fair number of the Napoleonic Ottomans on eBay France, just by dumb luck. Seller advertised them as Minifigs. Try searching eBay worldwide for global offers.

I swear I remember a post once some years ago, stating that the molds went to the widow who didn't care and also refused to do anything with them.

That would be a tragedy. His figures are amongst my favorites.
