Last time I bought any Deauville figures was in 1983! Are they even still around? Where did you get yours from-a recent purchase or have they been insulating the attic? The quality is not up to todays standards in resin; even 20+ years ago I was replacing heads, weapons, boots etc.; the biggest reason I purchased them was they were one of the few companies that made Waffen SS figures-can you imagine that, considering the number of SS figures available today?? They also had some good poses for the day, but their only use for today I would think would be for collecting purposes. I still have several unpainted in my stash. They are not, in my opinion, as good as Chota Sahib or Cheshire Volunteer metal figures were/are--the latter mentioned would still hold up to today's standards and are still highly sought after (at least by me)! I have an address for them-no website, since the packages are from the dark ages.
