Help needed. Chinese civilians and bandits
« on: July 12, 2018, 10:22:56 AM »
Hello all

New to this part of the forum and the subject so i need your help.
I have some copplestone bandits for BOB and i was looking for more variants on other compatible manufacturers if they exist.
Also need some civilians to use with them.
Im familiar with some foundry ones on their casting room page but i was looking for more variants.

Thanks for watching

Cheers

Rui

Try TAG for Vietnamese Civilians, some of their Up Country range might suit. Pulp has some suitable packs as well.
Cheers,

Empress have some Tong figures and civilians now available from Tsuba - I think they were originally Obelisk Miniatures

The Pulp Yangtze gangs are being remade.

Argsilverson, thank you for the tip.
Unfortunately they are sold in Canada and the taxes and customs values charged in Portugal wont allow me to order them. :(

James, thank you for your help. PM sent. :)

Think that Northstar Miniatures stocks Pulp Figures and Crucible Crush in Europe.

Although they don't sell that particular line in their shop it might be worth asking.

Victorious Miniatures have some swordsmen that will do nicely for bandits.

 
The old Obelisk (now Empress I believe) Tong and civilians are my personal favorites. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them introduced here on LAF. Here are some of mine (most painted by the great Orctrader)

 
Both mix well with Copplestone IMO

I have ordered several times directly from Pulp figures from Canada to Greece and there was no custom duties and taxes. Only necessary to ask for airmail otherwise it takes ages to reach you.

Please also ask Miniaturicum in Germany if they have some still available. Alas, I see now they are on holidays and they reconstruct their shop.

Argsilverson, you are lucky. :)
As an example ive ordered some stuff from US with a total value of 39 dollars and ive payed 31,88 euros of taxes.
That gives me enough reasons to not order again. :(
No fault of the manufacturers. Its just how things are working here in Portugal, unfortunatelly.

Marianas_gamer, thank you for your tips.
Victorious miniatures ordered (3 packs under way). :D
The Obelisk ones are waiting for next month. Discipline must prevail... ::)
