Not exactly vintage but...


...can anyone help me identify the manufacturer of this range, and/or who sells them now?

They are 20mm figures and part of a larger range of Arabs and French Foreign Legion. I bought these as samples a few years ago from a seller on eBay, but when I tried to buy more they had a complicated system for ordering  from their listing which I couldn't get to work for me; when I tried to contact them to order more figures direct there was no response. I haven't seen them listed again since and I have no information about that original order.

My only other memory is that I think they had various other ranges, and described these as an old range.

Any helpful suggestions via comments gratefully received.

I've now found the original seller's id for ebay. They seem to still be active so I have sent them a message.

I could be wrong, but aren't these American made Stone Mountain Miniatures?
They did a French Foreign Legion Range in the 1980's.
The company has changed hands several times.
I think they are called "Musket Miniatures" now.

Please let us know what they are, they look rather interesting.

I was going to guess B&B Miniatures.

Thanks all. Much to my surprise I managed to find the original eBay email correspondence and identified the seller who is still active on eBay and managed to contact him. He’s responded and is going to sort out a list for me in the next few days. He says he has added further figures to the range. I’ll post further details when I have them.
