28mm Wako !?
« on: May 30, 2021, 10:46:22 AM »
Hi all !

It seems to me that there was a line of 28mm "Wako" pirates !?

(It was a brand that also offered Ming Chinese)

Do you know where I could still find them !?

(This is to make a "test of honor" army)

Thank you !

Cavalcade then Forlorn Hope then something else. Cant remember who though.

Is it the fellow LAFer who does the Petal Throne/Tekumel stuff?

Kensei do a really nice range of Wako minis. I think they are a slightly larger than 28mm

Hi, I think Scheltrum Miniatures produced Ming and Wako, together with lots of other interesting figures ranges and models. Sadly I haven't heard if they are still trading.

The Kensei miniatures are pretty much 28mm to the eyes, here's a quick pic compared to fire forge, hasslefree and GW 5th edition warhammer.

they are very fiddely though, I've got a couple of kickstarters worth of minis but so far have only painred a handfull, because assembly is pain, lot's of small parts that too small to pin

It's a bit late and you've probably sorted your Test of Honour army out by now, but I believe these are the ones you were referring to Byblos
