Missing in action? Six manufacturer websites no longer active

I recently conducted a check of all the websites that I have listed for active metal manufacturers (and dedicated distributors). I was disappointed to find that several websites could not be accessed. They are listed below. Please contact me if you can provide further information, especially if you know of a new site replacing the one listed.

Amazon Miniatures
http://www.amazonminiatures.com/
25mm Ancient Range

Aude Historica (Italian site remains up, but English version is down)
http://www.audehistorica.com/
20mm ranges: First World War, Italian Unification

CW Toys
http://www.cw-toys.de/
In addition to a small range of their own figures, CW Toys distributes a number of metal ranges by other manufactures, some of which are exclusive to CW. UPDATE: As of August 5, this site was back in business, which is great news. Thanks to Tom P. for pointing that out.

GFI Distributors
http://www.minifigs.com/catalog/
Sole distributor for Outland, and US distributor for Minifigs. The story behind this hiatus can be found on TMP.

NapoleoN
http://www.napoleon.com.es/
Sells the former Les Higgins Napoleonics.

Wargames Supply Dump / WSD
http://www.wargamessupplydump.co.uk/
20mm range: World War Two

NapoleoN went about 15 months ago. http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=226976

Amazon have been disengaging for years - Paul works abroad a lot and found it difficult to do Amazon as well. He was rumoured to have put up many ranges for sale, but didn't reply to mt own enquiries - strange, as he hosts the Garrison website.

Thanks for adding that information.
