I could see it being the same manufacturer, but the company being totally different. The factory in China could specialize in plastic objects / toys and also did up Wargames Factory's models, and many factories will produce items for multiple companies.

It is true they make moulds for other miniatures companies; like Warlord Games.

Check out the sprues for their new Crimean War figures.

*Official wargames Atlantic hat on*

Wargames atlantic is not wargames factory. Full stop.

Furthermore, the factory we use is NOT that used by Wargames factory.

Please direct any further questions to my attention.

Kind regards,

Max

Thank you for the reviews!

Technically these are also Wargames Factory as that is who is making these for Wargames Atlantic.

No.

No we are not.

So you’re now using a different company?

I had noticed the newest sprues are different (no alignment tabs like the Skeletons, Raumjager)).

I have no problem with it either way.  I do like the alignment tabs for shipping- less damage to the sprues (scrape marks, missing pieces, broken pieces).

Our sprues have never been made by war games factory or their production facility.

The alignment tabs you speak of work coincidental similarity that we mixed in order to be able to fit more sprues in the box.

Would also like to know, where you got that information @wmyers?

Could be possible they use the same manufacturer (not sure) but don't think they are the same company as the defunct Wargames Factory.


You can read about it at Beasts of War https://www.beastsofwar.com/scifi/wargames-atlantics-sci-fi-soldiers-skeletons/

Wai Kee Hui runs Ghost Studio.

Sorry wmyers, but I read the article and the comments on the page you pointed to, but I don’t see any mention of Wai Kee Hui… I did saw a few comments telling Wargames Atlantic isn’t Wargames Factory…

A CANADIAN local hobby store with lots of bits and pieces for wargamer… Their site is a bit of a pain to navigate though; https://www.kingdomtitans.ca/us/

One more time.....

We, Wargames atlantic, are not Wargames factory and do not use any of the same manufacturing partners.

Cheers. I apologise for my confusion.


I've had to clarify this a lot, lately

Regardless of all the confusion ... it is my understanding the plastics are being produced in China.

This is correct. Our sprue production facility is in china, but it is not the one WGF used/uses

Sounds like there may be more to this. 

Regardless, the figures are beautiful and well done.  The subject matter is excellent. 

I know I will continue to buy these figures and I hope there will be many more sets made for a very long time!

I look forward to when the plastics are not produced in China.

That is probably going to be a long ways off. They have the technical expertise when it comes to plastics production. Furthermore, they are inexpensive by comparison.
