Re: Head changes

Good hints so far form Roger and Handlewithcare. Especially Franznap is brilliant.

If you could specify what exactly you are looking for, you'll probably get plenty of suggestions for head swaps here in the forum. This is still the cheapest and easiest way.

Other than that, I bought a couple of white metal spare heads for Napoleonic French troops (heads with bonnet de police, bicornes for regular gendarmes and cylindrical hussar shakos for 1813-1815) a couple of years ago from Fuhrmann Figuren. They were produced by a French company and came in small plastic bags with 5 or 6 heads each. Can't remember the name of the company though, sorry. You can also ask Fuhrmann Figuren or Kamar via the contact form on their websites. They are usually very nice and responsive.

If you are registered at Benno's you can also place you're question there. Or, as it's been asked before just search Benno's forum for "Spare/replacement heads".

Probably Bruno Arnal (Le Lancier Bleu)?

I think they are OOP, aren't they?

Re: Head changes

Right! Just these. And you're probably right about these being oop. Maybe Fuhrmann Figuren still has a few lying around in a corner. Asking can't hurt. But Franznap is a good alternative.
That's the nice thing about this forum (and Bennos's): You don't know about a thing or two and sooner or later somebody has the answer! Thanks a lot! :sunglasses:
