How about some armoured and armed ogres (for the fantasy range), about the same size as the minotaurs, looking roughly like large heavily muscled men, but with slightly bestial faces and fangs/tusks?

Are the trolls any use?  You could add some tusks and armour fairly easily?

Haha, I've shrunk it down a bit with a "width=200" tag.

The trolls just aren't very good figures.  Sad They look like cartoons. I think you could do a lot better.

you've got a huge range of figures at low prices and i really like the imaginative designs of some of your figures (e.g goblin-wolf centaurs), but to be honest i mostly prefer Eureka's 10mm line and Games Workshop's Warmaster and Battle of the Five armies fantasy ranges (even if both are more expensive and Games Workshop's prices rise at way above the rate of inflation).

Pendraken 10mm goblins and dark elves and centaurs and wood elves are decent figures and can be used with other 10 - 12mm figs without looking like a different scale. Most of the rest of the 10mm fantasy - Orcs and trolls and minotaurs, hobgoblins, fishmen and dwarves, i'm not too keen on - too big to use with most other figures - (pretty much 15mm scale with the exception of minotaurs as they're meant to be big), too cartoon-style, outsize hands weapons and heads. Making fishmen just a fish carrying a trident - well - maybe meant to be funny? I prefer more serious looking figures.

The Trolls and Minotaurs I'd expect to be bigger, but I know what you mean with some of the others.  The Ratmen are quite big, but then how big is a Fantasy rat?  They can be used in the 15 and 20mm games easily though.  The Fishmen are completely random, I'm not sure what the designer was on that particular day!

With the Dwarves, the original ones from when we started are a bit bigger than some people like, but the Hill Dwarves are a very nice alternative, and I prefer the look of them.

I like the idea. I think I'll sculpt a bunch and make them fit the dungeon range, i.e. put them on 15² bases. For fun at least. Maybe a handful, with axe, mace, club, cleaver, cleave-axe; wearing leather and hide armor, shoulder plates and shields occasionally.

Cheers
