Two quick updates.


The email adress for NECKEL: neckelzinnfigur@aol.com (not "zinnfiguren")


Mr. Neckel recently transfered his molds for 30 Years War figures to Schmalkalder Zinnfiguren. This includes some very good portrait figures and riders engraved by Frank. Also the 11 figures RG31-RG41, the French Garde of Louis XIII designed in

Thanks for the info - I wish him well.  We all are getting older and there is not always the younger set to pick up the reins.

Unbeknown to us we do seem to have passed through a golden age of availability, and choices that the internet brought along and now the tide is receding for various reasons.

I do agree with Brian's view which is purchase where you can and try to support the active vendors.  Like most of us I have a verrrrry healthy backlog and have no 'real reason' to purchase more flats but, still enjoy the thrill of the chase and finding something new or rare. 


One of my nice memories was five years ago a very heavy box from Neckel with the figures from the Army of the Blue King, Rome, a Rococo Ball and some Enlightenment figures ...pretty magical still going through 2 pounds of wonderful flats all beautifully engraved and cast.  The simple pleasures of our hobby.

Neckel has had serious health problems and has also had to move his house........ He hasn't produced any more for almost two years and I think it will be very difficult to order flats for the next few months as well. I've been waiting for flats of him for several months... :(

This is in the hands of painters, shows, contests, more than sellers, who are at the other side....
So let's all paint more than the last two months to create demand again!

From my experience, there were no problems with Widmann and Dangelmaier last year. I bought from the Dangelmaier at Kulmbach and swapped figures with Widmann shortly afterwards. The latter remarked on having some figures not in stock at the moment, but that was in 2022. I've got no informations aboutt Neckel.

same for Benedikt Widmann .... perhaps people after Covid are changing their working habits, or their job for a less stressful life.
This is true everywehere in our Western countries ...

Thank you Christoph I will keep trying and let folks know.

(I had a similar experience to you with Dangelmaier last year.  It is complicated for everyone these days it seems...)

Hello,
I orderd from him some figures in early febuary 2022. When nothing arrived I send him an email some weeks later. He replied to me that he is busy at the moment and it will take some time. But since then I didn't heard anything from him. He wasn't at Kulmbach last year.

I have been trying to place an order with Neckel, has anyone corresponded/purchased from them of late?   If so what email address did you use?

They are probably my favorite Editor overall and I would be quite sad if they have joined the list of Editors now defunct and ware scattered to the wind.

Fingers crossed.....
