No one seems to respond from ScotiaGrendel or Donningtion. Are these figures out of production?

I just got some Xyston along with some Donnington miniatures from Donnington. They arrived a couple of weeks ago, with delivery being very prompt.

Maybe just chase it up again. I've always found them very good.

Cheers,
John

Is there a US Distributor for the Xyston figures?

If it matters, I'm looking for ancient Greeks.

I can't open any of the Scotia Grendel web links, of any kind not the forum, catalogue, main, nothing. Is their website down?

Also, Legends in Time have changed their phone number and the recording says "the new number is not known". They also have no email and the forum questions are 10 years old on the front page.

Are they still in business?

update:
I checked out Donnington and the shipping price doubled the cost of the order – it was around $55 USD US.

I kept looking and found most of what I wanted at Noble Knight Games, of all places. From them they had some discounts and sales, and I got Free shipping, so for $165 USD total cost I got about 240 Xyston figures. It came to 68 cents a fig, which is around half the – total – going rate.

No complaints here, except that some of the items I wanted were out of stock.

Well being in New Zealand I have to pay international postage on everything, other than when, from October of last year USPS stopped posting to New Zealand (and Australia and a bunch of other countries) so it would have to be couriered.

I'd just placed an order with Old Glory, then found out later the same day of the unexpected USPS withdrawal of service. So the order, made up and ready to go, sat on a shelf at OG for about ten months. (I have a lead mountain to paint so it wasn't urgent). Eventually, little progress on the lead mountain notwithstanding, I decided to contact OG and ask them to bill me the extra to have the order couriered.

They did so and promptly dispatched the order. A couple of days later, USPS resumed normal service . . .

So anyway, UPS got my parcel from OG on July 27th. It still hasn't arrived, and UPS isn't letting me sign up to track the parcel. Ah, the joy! If I didn't currently have covid, I might have a bit more energy to deal with this.

Maybe the mail carrier's big furry feet are just too worn out to deliver the package?

Ah well, like the old story goes:
"They told me to smile, things could be worse!…
So I smiled, and sure enough, things got worse!"
