Ex-Sentry range of 20mm Normandy buildings
« on: May 15, 2017, 11:41:46 AM »
For anyone who hasn't come across them before, the Sentry models were Normandy specific, superb casts, beautifully painted and easily the best range of resin buildings I have ever seen in any scale. After their creator retired, I think the range was acquired by BB Wargames (UK, based in the Norwich area) and was still being sold as very nicely painted buildings at Salute until a year or two ago.  BB Wargames now seems to be no more, and I was wondering what happened to the buildings.  Does anyone know who, if anyone, sells them in the UK?

Hi Sabot - thanks very much for the reply; I was beginning to despair of getting an answer!

Sabot - if you are still there, I can't find Raventhorpe! They didn't have a website as far as I remember (via Rapid Fire in the old days??) and all I can find is Facebook with no updates since around 2013.  Any ideas please how I can track them down?

There is another Raventhorpe Sentry group on Face Book that is still active although I believe it is a closed group and you will have to apply to join ( yeah I know!) .

If you strike out let me know and will search for contact number etc - Tony is still very active.

Tony, owner of Raventhorpe is in the group so you should get some  joy.
