One Sixth Scale King has it, but I don't even know if he's still in business...

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

You could try contacting WynstonWarriors on ebay, I can't see any in his stock but he's very friendly and has done custom work for me.

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

CVI also did one. I still think they are the best due to the material used, but they are no longer in production by Monkey Depot (which really upsets me).

You're right. It wasn't included in any of their normal sets, but they offered it with the bonus set they released in 2004. http://www.monkeydepot.com/Insignia_..._p/cvi0036.htm

CVI's stuff is/was great. It's a shame.

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

One of the board members was kind enough to send me an extra CVI patch he had , I also gave One Sixth King a try for some of their patches. It's hard to find things like Luftwaffe breast eagles and miscellaneous patches since CVI quit making theirs. It is a shame .

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

Agreed.

CVI patches are awesome! I wish Monkey Depot would reprint all of the CVI artwork they have. I'd like to stock up on them.

Glad you were able to find some of the Ramcke Brigade patches, Mike!

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

I wonder if they would consider doing a run of the CVI patches ? I'm sure they would sell fairly quick.

Keep an eye on eBay. CVI sets pop up there from time to time.

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

I asked them right before Christmas. Unfortunately the answer I received was 'not anytime in the near future' or along those lines.

However, if more people contacted them, that would certainly help.

I need luft. gulls and panzer skulls!

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

Ben....if I'm not mistaken Nomad may make the gulls and skulls. I ordered some Panzer collar patches a while back and they had beautiful separate raised skulls on them

Agreed with Dick - I just placed a large order of Luftwaffe and Panzer insignia back in October (2015) with Nomad.

I bet if you asked, he'd sell the gulls and skulls loose. I've bought SS collar pips loose from him before.

That being said, again, I wish Monkey Depot would reprint the CVI line. I'd like to stock up.

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

FYI, there's a 2 page thread over at The Sixth Division, detailing numerous issues over the years with Wynston's Warriors: http://onesixthnet.yuku.com/topic/58...stons-Warriors

He's been banned from that forum, after too many broken promises and unfulfilled deals.

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

Yes, there is. And unfortunately many of the current listings on ebay have spelling errors, incorrect/mixed up unit insignia, and just pure fantasy items. And that's only glancing at the German items, so buyer beware.

I figured that Nomad also produced items like that. I may have to 'build up' an order of items. I chucked all my older DML insignia, etc. to upgrade it to raised insignia, so I need quite a few skulls & gulls (that's a cool wwii band name there!).

This Wynston Warriors has been going just over 6 months and managed only one complaint, I don't know if it's run by the same person but if it is they seem to be better now. I hope it can continue because insignia is very difficult to get hold of if you don't have a printer.

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

I am the same person, but with eBay you have paypal and ebay to complain to. I am doing better all the way around and I enjoy it more as I am much healthier. Thanks for thinking about me anyway.

Re: Ramcke Brigade scorpion patch

I have bought a couple of the patch sets off ebay as I wanted to see the quality. They are good parts and I got them quickly. No issues.

I plan to order a few more sets.

Thanks

Thanks for the thought. What happened before was back in 2002 or 2003. I have learned a lot since then. If can do quantity discounts and special orders. You won't get a better deal unless it's free.
