Looking for 28mm historical miniature figures?
This blog is a database of manufacturers showing who makes what. I am also adding photos showing figures from different makers side by side.
The 'Directory' tab has a list of manufacturers showing what ranges they make and a link to their website.
The other tabs list what figures are available for that period.
This appears to be a small outfit based in Germany which till recently focused on making some lovely looking terrain and buildings. They also make various fantasy-type figures.
Their historical range, at the moment, consists of just Medieval Scottish figures. There is a very 'Braveheart' vibe to them, including one that is the spit of Mad Mel, so they may not appeal to purists!
After a busy summer I've finally found a bit of time for an update!
Antediluvian Miniatures is a manufacturer of fantasy/pulp explorer type figures that has now expanded into historicals.
Their first line is medieval. I believe that these figures are the old Scots/Irish ranges previously sold by Claymore Miniatures. Claymore themselves appear to be continuing with their 100 Years War/14th Century lines.
Anyway, have a nice piccy from the Antediluvian website...
As well as the usual spearmen and so on, interestingly they also have figures for traders and boatbuilders. As my old grandad used to say, variety is the spice of life, so this range looks like a welcome addition to the many Viking figures already available!
