Just a heads up for anyone sending orders into NAVWAR.

Due to recent injuries, it sounds like Tony is unable to cast anymore. Models are limited to whatever he currently has in stock. My recent order unfortunately had quite a few bits missing from it, popular items too not just obscure vessels. My order came with a note asking all future orders to include a list of alternative vessels if possible.

Hopefully he gets better and makes a speedy recovery, but with his age, this might be the beginning of the end for NAVWAR unfortunately 🙁

I wonder if he's ever spoken to anybody about picking up the model line once he's no longer able to manage it?

So sorry to hear. I hope he recovers, regardless of NavWar's status.

Wish him the best – it would be sad if Navwar disappeared frown

Navwar is a very nostalgic connection to the early days. When 1/3000 ruled the waves. All of my transition steam warships and ironclads came from there. And long ago he carried Heroics and Ros figs, another blast from the past.

I hope he recovers, regardless of what happens to the business, but it has been an icon to many.

Hope he recovers quickly.

Well that's sad, although nothing lasts forever. As others have said, the important thing is that Tony should be ok, and maybe get to enjoy an undoubtedly well earned rest. However, if Navwar shuts up shop it will be the end of an era. I dare say 3d printing has taken over much of the market, but I will be sorry to see Navwar closing. I am glad I got some orders in recently, and can now justify that part of my lead pile of shame, at least.

Sorry to hear that Tony isn't recovering as well as we had all hoped he would. I'm inclined to put in a small order too but not sure I could come up with many alternatives. I'll have a try though.
