Looks like they are very much on the 28 mm side.
They say 25mm range on their website.
They use digital/3D printing I think, so whether or not you can ask for the figures to be scaled down to 1/72 (something like 23.5mm as per Spiera miniatures?) i'm not sure. Maybe drop them an email & ask. Let us know how you get on as if they were eager to make them in 1/72, i'm sure they might find some extra business!
They are far too big even to fit in with the Italeri giants - bulk as well as height.
They are nice as far as '28mm' metal figures go.
28mm certainly, and at 28mm prices. But very nice figures, albeit a fairly limited range apart from late Napoleonic French and Prussians.
This simply reinforces why I decided a long time ago to invest my time and effort in 1/72 plastics. A 24 figure column of Napoleonic infantry using these figures would cost...well, something equivalent to a modest meal out for two. A single box of 1/72 figures might provide you with (almost) two 24 figure columns.
The sums are simple...and you pay your money and take your choice.
Good point Mark.
I do supplement my plastics with some metal figures from time to time.
Or if a unit or maybe a personality only exists in metal, then I will buy them....depending on how well they match up in terms of scale.
But whenever possible, I try to make the main body of my units from plastic sets.....its just cheaper.
I did read somewhere on the Calpe website that he is changing to digital/3D print. So I guess that is a move away from metal. Isn't 3D printing done using some sort of plastic? I dont know what his plans are, but if the 3D print thing is like how Speira miniatures operate, then he might if asked scale his figures down maybe?
