  • Our Business Re Launch is scheduled now very shortly, and will bring a final joyful "end" to some of the old Gossipy ones on Line who say "He never makes anything". Ive been putting the finishing touches to some workspaces, and we both have been busy painting the Mountford Artillery "Display" Models.

    Above. Todays idetical figure dispayed and being sold by Tradition on their internet shop site.

    Had "news" from Ana Abram Simons widow? Apparently, she is having a rather hard time of it with Abrams family, and has decided to now sell the rest of his former FLEURBAIX Figure range, ). Our E mail here is bit flakey, so if you do have a mail for her or them, or you know some Bone Fide guys who might be interested

    Pass word around and see if someone may be interested to buy it to help her and Victor Abrams son
    Max and Maryse will be selling individual figures, and initialy sold "loose" I E Not boxed figure sets, at this early time. As part of a service however to encourage younger Model makers to "convert" and create new figures of their own, and to help try to bring back to the Hobby more young Modellers once more, a series of "conversion parts sets" is to be issued.

    These will include separate heads, legs, bodies hands weapons etc. There will also be a number of separate, different posed Horses as part of the series.
    Boxed figure sets are planned for the future, once re established. Restoring several of the large figure ranges has taken a great committment in personal time and energy, following the demise of the previous owner in bad health, and the chaotic state much of it was found to be in.
    Max and Maryse FABRE CHEVALLIER purchased the complete former "Sarum Soldiers" Ranges of these items from retired "International Buisnessman" Patrick J D WILLIS in 2009. This was a bone fide legaly witnessed purchase using UK legal Solicitors and well and clearly documented.
    The classic figurine ranges were never sold or somehow "licensed" to anybody "else" at any time.

    The FABRE CHEVALLIER family continue to own and to fully posess all materiel and toolings, Moulds and Masters and full Documentation in Europe, so this firmly de bunks and shows up anybody o selling copies or re casted products.
    This also includes items" sold by "TRADITION" of London (Stockholm ) who have been copying a number of the figures illegaly.

    As part of the re Launch this year of the ranges from New Zealand now owned by them, the family will also be re issuing Chota Sahib and Studio figurine ranges. Which no doubt shall prove interesting to collectors everywhere.
    Meanwhile, Max and Maryse welcome honest and traditional toy soldier collectors from around the world, and invite enquiries from interested hobby enthusiasts interested in buying some of their many figures or kits.

    A Dedicated Internet Server is being set up from which shortly it will once again become easily possible to buy the toy soldiers.

    Please leave a message on TREEFROG or alternatively, for Toy Soldier questions only, E mail max Chevallier on.


    Please note that the Chevalliers do not offer toy soldiers through anyone else, and will not be using or selling " on E Bay".
    Following a violent robbery in France by a known UK criminal French based Criminal gang, Max Chevallier is offerring a 1000 EURO financial reward for information resulting in the aprehension and arrest of the UK English foreign criminals who tried to steal their Chota Sahib and Studio Figurine Range, which they previously purchased legaly from Patrick J D Willis in 2009.

    The Chevallier family own Chota Sahib and former Sarum Studio Figurine ranges, both 54Mm as well as 90 MM scale, this uk solicitors document of sale and purchase firmly included all copyright and intellectual property.

    Due to the Piracy of his figures by FROME Model Centre, and others, the CHEVALLIER family will refuse to do business with UK Retailers until the theft is dealt with to their satisfaction. Mr Simon ENGLAND of Frome Model Centre was Max Chevalliers former retailer in the Uk and stole the intellectual property and has been re selling Piracy figure products of the Chota Sahib and Studio Figurines.
    The Chevallier family will be re issuing the toy soldier ranges from Europe beginning in 2024. The toy soldiers will be sold from their own dedicated secure server site. Att his time, only un painted Metal toy soldiers and castings (Kits) will be available. Painted sets are to be issued later once the business is firmly re established.

    Maxime (MAX) CHEVALLIER and Maryse FABRE CHEVALLIER purchased the entire ranges from Abram SIMON last year and they have been shipped to the EU for Re launching back onto the toy soldier market from their European workshops.

    This re launch is scheduled to begin in 2024.
    Sadly it has been reported, that Mr Abram Simon passed away in 2024 following a long period of apparrent ill health, leaving his Widow Ana (Anastasia ) and his Son Victor. His sudden, unexpected, death at such a early age, deprives the Toy Figure Hobby Industry of one of its youngest, and most Knowledgeable younger members, and the resultant loss of FLEURBAIX Toy Soldiers no doubt will be felt everywhere in the Toy Soldier collectors associattions and Community.
    Thankyou Baron.
    Yes I purchased a large quantity of Ranges from Abram Simon in New Zealand. Sadly Abram Simon passed away after a battle with a long Health condition, leaving behind him a widow with two children. I am going to re issue the former French CRECY Knights first, and then the "English and Foot Soldiers and finaly the "infamous Looters (Burgundians and some English from the period too).
    You might be interested also to know I bought the "Mountford Artillery" Kits, the "Under Two Flags Range", the JG Miniatures Romans , Gladiators and the entire surviving Rosedale and Rose Range (Rose Egyptian series sold originaly to the Simons from John Eden studios). Also I acquired the complete "Music in Miniature" range and the Burlington Horse rider Range.
    its all very eciting really, and we are alsoworking on the former Jack and Thelma Duke (DUCAL" ranges .
    Watch my posts over coming weeks for updates.
