Hmm .. so they might scale well with GW's LotR range?

LotR plastics are 28mm and metal 32mm iirc only on the small side compared to other current GW minis, not in the range of actual 25mm.

Lovely to see Mr. Meiers' work will carry on. It was such a shame to think his very distinctive and classical miniatures were going to be no more.

The LotR range is pretty inconsistent, especially the older stuff. The high elves in particular are pretty tiny.

If they measure ~25mm to to eye, they're good then.

I believe the Arthurian stuff is 25mm to the eye. The fantasy stuff and Byzantines are 28mm, although their proportions are closer to real life than almost every other miniature Ive encountered, so they look very slight and delicate compared to almost else out there. It works quite well for the elves if you like an otherworldly look.
