Alas, Gentlemen, but the Sailors/Gun Crews the late Richard Houston created were sculpted and cast in 25mm. Additions to the line by Chris Ferree (Survivors, Fire Fighters) are larger and would work with 28mm figures easily.

It is far easier--and more accurate--to use electronic calipers precisely to measure an inanimate object (Cannon, Machine Gun, etc) than one representing anything human. Consequently, the best effort will be either to produce an entirely new range of sculpts/castings, OR possibly to create 3D designs for printing.

The former would provide quality figures in what is still the most popular medium--white metal--but would require time Chris is devoting to all the new 3D products and other projects, and designing 3D figures is still some time away as new programs and skills must be mastered first.

The entire former Houston Collection is on schedule for replacement with superior 3D resin prints, and altogether new items are being added as we go. Eventually, TVAG will offer wargame figures either in the same form, or in metal using 3D tech to design the master figures for casting.

And that's the name of that tune..,.

As announced before, TVAG continues to replace the old metal castings of the Houston Collection with state-of-the-art 3Dprinted resin items, plus altogether new ones.

From Gatling Guns, Hales Rockets, Oerlikons, and Lewis Guns, to Life Rafts, the entire range is being ever expanded and improved.

Many more new items will be released by early November, including more Gatlings, other MGs, additional fittings, and some remarkable pieces to encourage building your own gunboat and rivercraft models.

Each item now appears on an active list down the page, allowing shoppers to go to the exact item they may wish to see and order – just follow this link.

Cheers!
