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 Six manufacturer websites no longer active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
25mm Ancient Range

Aude Historica (Italian site remains up, but English version is down)
20mm ranges: First World War, Italian Unification

CW Toys
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
Sole distributor for Outland, and US distributor for Minifigs. The story behind this hiatus can be found on TMP.

Sells the former Les Higgins Napoleonics.

Wargames Supply Dump / WSD
20mm range: World War Two

Thanks Matt and Tom. I have updated the CW Toys entry.

NapoleoN went about 15 months ago.

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.
