Are they the only source for them these days?  I thought there was a US caster/distributor for them as well, but the name's eluding me.

The only vaguely similar models I have found are the mercenaries from Old Glory 25s.

I wish someone would pick up the old Cobalt 1 range that can actually stay in business.
WHAT do you mean I lost!!! I had MORE fun!

Does anyone know of if Bridge Miniatures are still trading? Their webstore appears ok, but they haven't responded to emails. I have some of the old Cobalt figures and would like sone more, as are compatible with my crew.

I ordered some stuff from Bridge Miniatures inn December 2019 and nothing happened.  I made repeated attempts to contact them via phone, text and email but got nothing back.  I eventually raised a Paypal grievance in March 2020 and got my money refunded.

That whole range was also sculpted by Bob Naismith, so no surprise they look similar.  They're also insanely inexpensive (40% off!) if you're an Old Glory Army member, and you can even ask for a free set of them as your bonus for joining up.  I've done quite  afew of them over the years, they're really a pleasure to work with.

You can also find some more of his work under the Superfigs tab, with the Alien Host and Henchmen subcategoroes being particularly handy for troopers.

Well, agreed, but other than Bridge I don't think any of the former producers actually folded, they just sold the range on to others.  IIRC they started life at Westwind/Old Glory, then went to Black Hat who sold them to Bridge when they decided to get out the casting end things and focus on supplies.  Even Bridge isn't officially OOB, just gone dark.

Certainly a shame they aren't available right now, Stargrave would have been a sales booster for them, no doubt.

I'm worried that all these "heavy crews" are going to attract too much "unwanted attention" lol So mine are going to have to be so far below the radar. Here's my first of many and some old sentrabots.

The crews look fantastic. I love the satellite and drone images, too.  :D
