While reading another blog (Tabletop Gaming News to be precise) I saw a link to Elhiem Figures.
I had a look and have to say I was very impressed.
Not bulk figures by the bucket, but very distinctive and very nice!

They are metal and I have drifted over to plastics as of late. I seem to be collecting various plastic manufacturers at the moment, but like SHQ, Platoon 20 and Drews Militia I think their (Elhiem) time will come for me ;)
If you dig into their site they have a RN Naval Party which in particular caught my eye.
How many times in your wargaming life do you get the opportunity to say in Vian style "The Navy's here!"?
