I have some of their 10mm Early imperial Romans and thecargers are literally head an shoulders above the legionaries.

I believe they have used different sculptors within some ranges resulting in these anomalies.

Also the Steve Barber 10mm ranges are up for grabs as well. Excellent figures, but
Not completely compatible with Pendraken. Also some ranges are not complete, although I guess a buyer could get Steve to make the masters they wanted

The Chariot 15 mm range are lovely figures.

I was looking at those the other day, what makes them less than compatible?

I've mixed them quite happily with Pendrakens (Zulu and Numidian figures).

I use all Steve Barbers figures in the same army but not the same units. They are a little bulkier and shields are fractionally larger.

OK so I could use the germans as barbarians then

Thanks

Yes, They are lovely figures, so much so I keep looking at buying a Germanic Army, before he sells it. Despite having 4 other ancient 10m armies to paint

Quote from: John Cook on 21 January 2024, 10:52:59 AMJust out of interest, if it isn't 'commercial in confidence', how much did they want for the entire 10mm range?

Are you permitted to say "I'm a bit nervous"?

Fair enough, I thought that might be the case.

O Dinas Powys

It's the 10mm prehistorics I'll miss  :'(

...not that I ever got round to buying more than a couple of "essentials" due to the price!
(I know, even though it's fantasy  :o  ;)  )
