Front Rank has a very loyal core of repeat purchasing customers and continues to attract new customers worldwide through our good reputation and word of mouth.
Front Rank has been a major part of Alec and Angela’s life for over 35 years and with Alec’s continued passion for the hobby and military history, it has not been an easy decision to put Front Rank up for sale, but now that we are in our 60’s we would like more time to pursue other interests in retirement.
We believe with a forward thinking, enthusiastic person/s at the helm, Front Rank has fantastic potential to continue to grow and develop.
Raising Front Rank’s online profile and presence through social media to the Wargames community, in Wargames publications/online websites etc, will undoubtedly increase sales worldwide.
Front Rank has not supplied trade outlets or attended exhibitions for a number of years and recently we have had in place a maximum order cap.
Front Rank is for sale as a ready made successful business with a long history and proven track record.
The forecast adjusted EBITDA figure for 2020/2021 ending June 2021 is £102,429.

Whilst Front Rank is up for sale we wish to assure all our customers that during this time it will be business as usual.
What can one say. Alec and Angela have run a top rate outfit that has been a pleasure to deal with over several decades. It is true that along the way they have managed to acquire no little amount of what should have been the wealth of von Peter himself. But the quality of their service and the quality of the product have meant that von Peter himself does not begrudge them. Not too much anyway! 😃
For the record locally Front Rank Figurines provide all – or nearly all – the figures for von Peter’s …
- Napoleonic Austrians
- Napoleonic Russians
- Napoleonic Bavarians
- Napoleonic Polish
- Napoleonic civilians
- Seven Years War Prussians
- Seven Years War Austrians
- a small contingent of Seven Years War Hanoverians
- a small contingent of Seven Years War French
- Seven Years War civilians.
Who will sculpt/create new figures in the style of Front Rank Figurines von Peter himself muses … to himself? Is this the end of new Front Rank Figurines?
Hopefully whoever takes over at Front Rank Figurines will continue the fine tradition of excellent prompt service and great casting.
Of course a HUGE thank you go to Alec and Angela. You have been a pleasure to deal with. One hopes that you get your well deserved pursuit of other interests and a happy and extended retirement.
Perhaps von Peter himself should get those few figures required to complete the Polish horse artillery battery now rather than later. Hmmm.
Until we meet again …
