What happened to Histofig?

Posted by Zed1 on 19 Jul 2015, 10:50

Does anybody know what happened to empire.histofig.com? The site is down for quite a while now, which is especially sad because it was a great resource for free Napoleonic uniform plates.

I tried to recover as many of these plates from the web, most of them from Rafael Pardos blog, but as many blogs only link to the source, the result wasn't that great. And for various reasons, I don't want to sign up to Pinterest.

Maybe someone from the forum has made himself an archive of Histofig plates?
Any ideas?

Noticed it was down a while back..shame :(
Pinterest..yuk. It´s becoming the bane for researching any subject. half the stuff on it is considered stolen and breaking Copyright .. The Money grabbing 3 S´s who created it Need thier testicles kicking along with that other S who runs FB.

Anyway..rant over. A lot of the plates are findable (as you say, Rafael Pardo´s blog) but there´s no free resource with the lot. Someone should do it.
