Dayton Painting Consortium

Does anyone know what's happening to DPC? I checked their website with a view to buying a few figures and found it's not functioning. The only page showing is for their Colonial 20mm range.

They were having a great deal of difficulties with their provider. I got an email from them sometime back and they said that they were probably going to have to re-do their whole website.

I have some photos of their RSM95 figures on my blog back in late '07:

Foot on 10/19/07
Heavy Horse on 11/4/07
Other Horse on 11/4/07

I will note that none of the figures were "cleaned up" or anything. They are just as I received them.

Give Rich a call at DPC -- (937)667-1037
or email him at --

As I recall, you can get a "sample" selection of figures for very little . . . but contact them for details. As far as I'm concerned, there isn't a better deal of quality for price in North America.

I had the same experience...

I found the old email from DPC. Here is what Rich wrote to me:

"We suffered an virus attack to the computer we edit the website on. I have been working on it for some time. I may just have to completely rebuild it."

Thanks, Jeff. I agree, they make fine figures for a very reasonable price.

A virus attack! Ouch!

Hey A.J.,

Try It takes them a while to arrive in the mail, but they are worth the wait.

Their website says the last update was 12 Oct 2009 so I am sure they are catching up on what they need to do.

Thanks for the advice, gentlemen. I'll wait a while for the dust to settle before making an order.

I have my eye on some dragoons, infantry and artillery. Now, if I could find someone who makes a female gunnery officer of moderately ample girth, I'll be happy! ;)
