I hope you will forgive me as some of these have been posted before however, I thought I would scan the advertisements from an old Military Modelling magazine as perusing them gives me so much pleasure in my dotage... I was seventeen years old back then... still at school taking (and failing) 'A' levels, as they were then known. Women and alcohol kind of set the seal on my path to financial obscurity.....the miniatures had been doing that for a few years already...
I had hoped an enlargement would show the contents of the cabinet better but alas twas not to be....
Better shot of Bryan Ansell, the man behind so much of the early industry.
Asgard Miniatures were still going strong, not sure of Bryan's involvement at this point though?
The late Peter Gilder designed all the Hinchliffe wargame figures and his fantasy has great appeal to me with the old style sculpting. Not sure what happened to the moulds. Duncan McFarlane of Wargames Illustrated fame had them in the 90s I think it was and did sell the castings but since then even he doesn't know.
Edit 25/02/2022 - Mike over at Broadsword Miniatures now has the moulds and is doing an excellent job of getting them out (along with Geoff Solomon-Sims).
Tell him I sent you!
15mm Jacobite Miniatures. The moulds have been purchased and some of the figures are currently being sold on ebay. The ones on the advert below are the early designs...they went through a couple of makeovers.
Edit 25/02/2022 - now on;
Or, for pics;
Tell them I sent you!
And of course a much loved shop for many....
You will find pictures of most old miniatures on the Lost Minis WIKI, a favourite haunt of mine and one which I contribute to mercilessly. If you have models that aren't illustrated as yet please get the camera out! Posterity waits for no man.........
