For those people who have made comment thank you, I have had further contact with Richard and have spoken with Frank (Minden Miniatures) and I have decided to stick with it and wait.
I think when I got the news I just felt that the range wasn't as advanced as Frank's and Jim's and therefore wasn't in a very strong position. But I know the range will be first class when complete and I want to see it complete.
Richard is doing some conversions and dolly work for Frank to get his 'eye' back in and to hopefully get him started again on the new figures.
So please be patient and watch for the updates, thanks
