1/72 Ancient wargaming figures

As a lad, I used to wargame ancients using the Wargames Research Group rules; indeed a metal 1/72 scale Seleucid army still resides in the loft of my house somewhere.  This week I came across an old-fashioned hobby shop, which is a rare thing indeed these days.  On the shelves were wargaming figures, in plastic, 1/72 scale for a vast range of ancient armies.  These were all by Hat Industrie, whose list is here with photographs.  Persians, Carthaginians, Late Romans, all in sets of 20-50 figures — I would have killed for these as a boy! 

Postscript, 21st May: I went back today and found the shop gone, as if it had never been.
