So sad to see they have closed up .
Hopefully someone will step in and purchase the ranges.
Stay safe Tony
Best wishes

I can't say that I've ever heard of them, perhaps that's one of the reasons they went out of business?

ERM were regulars at Claymore many times as well as other shows across the UK.

They are typical of many traders who are a one man band who age the same as the rest of us.

Makers of Platoon 20 among other ranges.

There's nothing quite like the internet for crushing insensitivity.

I once purchased all my 15mm "Grumpys" Imjin War Korean figures from them. Excellent service! Sorry to see them go.

I certainly have heard of them (and bought from them). I hoe the lines can be saved.

David O'brien,
Just because you haven't heard of them doesn't mean they aren't a much loved company here in the UK. They were certainly one of the smaller outfits, but I purchased many times from them amd shall miss them.

I made several purchases from them in the past. Great models, great service. I'm sorry to hear this.

Sad news. I wish him well.

Always superb service from ERM.

BillyNM30 Jul 2021 8:17 a.m. PST

I always had good service from them – watching with interest to see where the Lamming range goes.

I hope someone picks up the Platoon 20 ranges

Tony was my go to guy for MDF bases.
Sad to see him not being able to continue.

David O Brien31 Jul 2021 3:28 a.m. PST

Thank you for all the smart arse comments above.
I was merely pointing out that I hadn't heard of them and probably many others so if you don't advertise your company or products then don't be surprised when they don't buy anything and you have to go out of business.
It's always sad news when yet another wargames company goes out of business as many have done since I started wargaming all those years ago.

Black Hat Miniatures31 Jul 2021 7:21 a.m. PST

Except that you (as you admit) know nothing about the company so your comments are completely inappropriate.

Tony of ERM is retiring due to ill-health after running a very successful and well-liked company for many years.

Time to give in gracefully on this one Dave.

David,

Black Hat Miniatures is being gentle with you for only giving ill-health as the reason, instead of pointing out the full reason why Deleted by Moderator
