Artizan Designs

Artizan Designs produce a fairly small Dark Ages range which covers Arthurian, Carolingian, Moor and Viking warriors.

They are nicely sculpted with some good poses and crisp detail. The figures are on the small side when it comes to 'heft' but can be mixed with most other ranges quite happily unless you are very picky!

Figures come with shield but spears are not included.

This photo shows an Artizan figure on the left with a Crusader Miniatures figure on the right.

Here we have Artizan on the left with Foundry on the right.

Next up is Artizan compared with a Gripping Beast plastic figure.

And Artizan on the left with Redoubt on the right.

Perry Miniatures

Perry produce what are for many wargamers the 'gold standard' of figures. They have a large Napoleonic range in both plastic and metal.

Their figures are beautifully sculpted with good detail and animation. The only downside for me is that my painting skills are not good enough to do them justice!

Here is a Perry miniature on the left with a Victrix figure on the right.

And Perry on the left compared with a Warlord Games figure on the right.
