Well done and congratulations that that nightmare is done with.

martin goddard Sponsoring Member of TMP10 Sep 2020 11:55 p.m. PST

You have undertaken a massive task.
You have won through.
Well done.

Congratulations, but there is a lot of work to be done.

I look forward to the improvement and release of the Baden, Dutch, and Swedish ranges. The ones that I bought in the last year or so were a waste of money due to the poor quality of the molds.

If you are going to improve the ranges then please make sure that the figures have enough metal on the base so that they can stand up. I also recommend that horses have a minimum of 3 legs in contact with the base – far less likely to break.

Out of curiosity, how will these fit in with your current Xan ranges, which are of a superior quality?

Well done. I hope we can move on from this debate, you will be able to breath, sculpt in peace and not have to worry about this anymore. There has always been the talk of Stonewall and shady dealings. No one should have to deal with the theft of their IP or rights of product.

All the figures must be restored, therefore many will be brought to the current or very similar quality, but in my opinion quite a few figures already had a high quality, especially at the end, I have done tests and small touches, they turn those minis into many others top. They will also come out under another name.

But life is not fair and there are people full of evil and arrogance. The important thing is to fight them.

Xan Miniatures Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Sep 2020 4:37 a.m. PST

And thank you very much. Thank you very much Leon.

I'm so relieved to know this too. Congrats Xan, I hope this is going to mean a new start, either to own and commissioned projects alike!


Xan Miniatures Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Sep 2020 6:02 a.m. PST

I hope so, Lluis. I guess this will further improve my health and my ability to work.

GGouveia11 Sep 2020 6:24 a.m. PST

Great news.

Empress Miniatures Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Sep 2020 6:41 a.m. PST

Excellent news : )

Ruchel11 Sep 2020 10:49 a.m. PST

Congratulations. I love your Fantassin miniatures, and your Xan miniatures too!

I hope those excellent miniatures will be available soon on your website!

Frothers Did It And Ran Away11 Sep 2020 11:43 a.m. PST

Well done! The Fantassin WW2 figures were/are top quality, to see them properly produced again will be awesome.

Looking forward to getting them all in stock at soon!

d88mm1940 Supporting Member of TMP11 Sep 2020 11:37 p.m. PST

Extra Crispy, will you be getting the Napoleonic naval figures?

Xan Miniatures Sponsoring Member of TMP12 Sep 2020 1:37 a.m. PST

Those do not fit in the bag, they are not my doing.

d88mm1940 Supporting Member of TMP12 Sep 2020 1:22 p.m. PST

Ah shucks.
I really like dealing with ScaleCreep minis.

Xan Miniatures Sponsoring Member of TMP13 Sep 2020 1:02 p.m. PST

Thank you very much to all of you, customers and professionals, this support is very gratifying, I have had a great deal of incomprehension, especially before until Paul from EWM intervened in my favor by counting and after I delivered documents, my version began to be believed.
Many thanks to you too Paul, you were really very helpful and very brave as you put a lot of things at stake.
Thank you very much!!!!

jwebster13 Sep 2020 1:57 p.m. PST

I'm delighted to hear that you are getting your figures and (hopefully) mojo back.

I have been drooling over the Xan range for a while. If I didn't have a 30 battalion lead mountain, I would be heading straight for a very crispy website. I'm fully expecting to buy any Spanish figure that you make

On the other hand, I don't have enough cavalry yet …


Nic Robson Sponsoring Member of TMP13 Sep 2020 7:16 p.m. PST

Congratulations, Xan, it is often much easier to ignore things and hope they go away.
Your tenacity is an inspiration.
Well done

Xan Miniatures Sponsoring Member of TMP14 Sep 2020 1:55 a.m. PST

Thanks Nic, there are still some Spaniards ready to die in Rocroi.

Highlander114 Sep 2020 6:29 a.m. PST

Congratulations Xan – love the figures and great news. I'm just wondering what happens next, I see that Stonewall are still advertising the figures so do you now have to go through the UK legal system to get the molds back?

Xan Miniatures Sponsoring Member of TMP14 Sep 2020 9:42 a.m. PST

Not, me author's association will do it
on my behalf.
