Years ago, I bought some Black Tree Design 28mm Picts. The figures I have are 4 x slingers, 4 x armored warriors, 4 x naked warriors, and some unarmored warriors (axemen and swordsmen), also one figure blowing a horn.

Black Tree currently doesn't list any of these figures on their website. Is the range kaput?

I was hoping to get some more.

Try Noble Knight Games, they stock a lot of that brand.

They are reworking some ranges and they may come back online soon. That said I don't know which ones or when.

I was looking for some of their ancients figures that are now gone. I didn't see anything explaining what was going on.

Possibly redesign / re-sculpts or cleaning the molds. Possibly slow sellers and discontinued.

Have you tried contacting them?

I sent a message through the Contact Us page at I haven't heard back yet.

I'm rebasing the figures I have and touching them up a bit. They are very nice figures. I'm not sure what reworking they need. More likely, it was a line that didn't get a lot of sales--in which case, I'd like to think there's a stockpile of unsold packs. :)

Have you checked the facebook page? Seems that they've had a little grief to deal with.

Beauchamp, their last post was from 2019; almost four years ago. People are still waiting on their orders from 3-4 years ago.

I noticed that the last FB post for BTD was 2019. I didn't know that there have been outstanding orders for that long. Not really expecting a reply to my message now.

While I have always received my product in varying amounts of time, I don't think I've ever had an email response other than maybe a single time, with no response to a follow-up question.

Nothing to do with Picts sorry but I put in a small order recently and got it in about a week. Thought Id mention it as they often get a lot of criticism

BTD took the Ancients off their site a few years back to redo the lines. I like the figures a lot, and still find them from time to time on ebay. Last week I purchased a celts pack and an Ancient Germans pack.
