While the Heroics & Ros miniature ranges are extensive on occasion some armies or wars are not represented by existing figure ranges. In these cases determining the best figures to use can be complicated.

Several years ago Jean-Marc Largeaud invested considerable effort into documenting the various miniatures he has used to represent various armies using 6mm miniatures from the Heroics & Ros ranges. He then made this outstanding resource available through his website "Vendheaume Fighters". Unfortunately his site is currently unavailable due to webhosting changes initiated by his ISP.

Today, Jean-Marc and I are pleased to announce the first series of articles are available again as a collaborative project. Some 16 articles, look at representing armies from the Seven Years War to various Republican formations of the Franco-Prussian War. Some of the suggestions are relatively simple, others are more complex.

The various articles can be found here:

Very useful, thanks for posting!

An excellent resource. Thank you!

Great resource, thank you. I can offer a complementary one, as I likewise used a lot of H&R proxies for my 19th-century armies. Flickr albums here show them off.
Notes on exact figures used are a bit minimal but I'm happy to explain if anyone wants (eg, colonial Sikh infantry for 1878 Roumanians in lambswool caps).

But can we still get H&R 6mm any more? The various posts I have seen on NavWar suggest they are running off stock and not really manufacturing anymore. Or did I misread those threads?

Navwar sold the Heroics & Ros ranges to a new owner in 2009 to concentrate on naval miniatures.

Current details for Heroics & Ros are in the Manufacturers' Directory:

Didn't cover the Crimean War?

First off, thanks for sharing this info. Wish I had it back between 2000 thru 2010 when we stocked H&R figures at our store Attactix in Aurora, Co. (Had to close the store in 2011 after I took a job in Germany) We sold hundreds of packs!

Wish the new owner could license a US company to produce over here or at least find a retail outlet to stock them.

Thank you for all those that have taken the time to visit the project and of course for leaving feedback here. It is pleasing to know the work is appreciated by the 6mm community.
