Looking for minis for a possible Whartstock scenario
Posted 31 January 2013 - 02:18 PM
With that in mind I'm considering a couple of possible games and scenarios to run. One of them includes the following characters and I thought it might be nice to find suitable minis to represent them:
[*:gqtxr8by]Cyrano De Bergerac
I already have a mini for Doc Holliday and I've found a good one for Bruce Lee. These are the typical "oversized" 25mm figures common these days - Doc is from the Reaper range, if that helps with the scale - so they all need to look roughly in proportion with one another. Any thoughts for where I might find good minis for the rest? Suggestions welcomed, links appreciated!

However, you don't need to buy a whole box just to get them as there are various 'bits' websites that offer the individual parts from most GW sets - such as bitzbox.co.uk and letthedicedecide.co.uk (both of which I have used myself and would recommend) ...though they both seem to be out of stock of those parts at the moment ...typical eh?
As for some of the other guys ...have you had a look at ralparthaeurope.co.uk ?
If you ignore the garish paint job on some of them, a few of the 'Das Schwarze Auge' miniatures can be quite serviceable (I own a few, but I'd say that they are probably a tiny bit smaller than some of the reaper miniatures). They're also not that expensive (which is always a bonus as far as I am concerned ).

And for generic dark age figures (which are also rather cheap), there's Crusader Miniatures:

(it looks like they have Godwinson but not Hardrada )
I don't know if that helps at all, but there might be something there that will do in a pinch.

The more generic dark ages / middle ages figures should be easier to find, but I'm surprised I've seen no Renaissance scholar figs for Nostradamus, nothing even close. I'll have a good wander around those links.

You know, I thought much the same thing until I started looking for suitable minis to work on. There's an odd lack of historical figures in that area, something I've seen commented on several times on various minis forums. The best I've found have been a very poor match when it comes to scale or very hard to find in the UK. I think it was Brigade that had a nice Three Musketeers range, but no UK distribution for them and they only come in sets, not single figures.
Cyrano de Bergerac should be pretty straight-forward: take a swashbuckler mini and give it some quick green-stuff-rhinoplasty.

Their Modheim range might have some good ones as well.
