Miniatures for WW1

Postby maelmordha » Fri May 22, 2015 1:03 pm

Unashamedly nicked from here: http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=5677.0

The Manufacturers

Battle Honours (25mm)

Some what older, sized in between OG/Foundry and GWM

Black Army Productions
http://www.blackarmyproductions.com/

A range of miniatures ranging from suitable characters for WW1 to armoured cars

Blaze Away Miniatures & Models (28mm)
Australian Company with to few pics on their site to get a real impression of their minis. Edit: I've seen these figures and they match up okay with the other companies. They are slightly on the chunkier side, Helen.

Brigade Games (28mm)

Large Range, in size and style they look good next to Renegade and Copplestone (exception: late war germans steel helmets, it's looking somewhat different to Renegade or GWM). Vehicles from Company B or old NZWM are in 1/56.

Brigade Models
Don't confuse these with Brigade Games. New series, Starting with Belgians. From photographs they fit in well with the Battle Honours Belgians.

Company B (1/56)
Specialist for vehicles in 1:56, most sold through Brigade Games.

Copplestone Castings (28mm)
Centred on Asia. Most miniatures mix well with Renegade and Brigade Games. Beware of everything british, though - these are very large even compared to other Copplestone stuff.

Eureka Miniatures
Closes some gaps in other ranges. Size seems to vary, most are rather small.

Great War Miniatures (28mm)
High-End. Perhabs the most complete range of late war germans available in 28mm. Size comparable with Brigade or Renegade, though slimmer. Should work well with Woodbine an/or Battle Honours.

HLBS (25mm/28mm)
A larger older range. Sadly pics are hard to find, most of those don't make me want the minis. Vehicles are 1/64, that's really small, and most aren't in production any more - in May 2008 there is a limited re-run, though. The Great White North Range is new and 28mm.

Old Glory (25mm)
One of the largest ranges, looking rather good for Old Glory. Nice selection of vehicles. Size comparable to Foundry, maybe usable with Battle Honours, too.

Musketeer Miniatures


http://footsoreminiatures.co.uk/
Early BEF including Scots. Russians and more goodness on the way.

Pulp Figures (28mm)

Size comparable to GWM, but they definitively have their own style. They are meant for Pulp games, and that shows.

Renegade Miniatures (28mm)
Large range for Western/Russian/Italian Front, looking good next to Brigade Games and Copplestone.

Scarab Miniatures

http://scarabminiatures.com/
The start of the A-H range for late war and upcoming Italians and Russians. Concentrating on Italian campaign an Eastern Front. Late War French are now avaialble. Characters sets available as well. These miniatures fit in nicely with Brigade Games.

Reviresco (25mm)
Small and ugly looking miniatures. But they have a marvelous range of vehicles - sadly in 1/72!!! They got nearly every kind of armored car build in the great war. marienwagen, Pom-Poms, eye candy!

Sloppy Jaloppy (1/48)

A handful of 1/48 vehicles. Building them is a horror (authors own opinion) (full metal kits), but the results are worth it. Much larger than Company B.

Spyros Koumousis (25/28mm)
Sadly no longer available, a range for the balkan wars which closed some gaps in the miniature lines for early WW1, too.

Strategia e Tattica (28mm)

Do some Italians

Tiger Miniatures (30mm)
A new series for Balkan Wars, some might be used for WW1. According to one source they are very large, about 30-35mm! However, don't be put off by their size as they produce some unique miniatures for the period and the quality is improving all the time.

Tradition of Scandinavia (30mm)
Old school with very interesting german nobility

Wargames Foundry (25mm)
An older range, size as Old Glory and maybe battle Honours.

Wartime Miniatures. Australian Light Horse mounted and dismounted. This range also includes the Hotchkiss autorifle.

Woodbine Design Company/Gripping Beast (28mm)
new series, size comparable to GWM.
