Ran the Cid, if you are after 28mm metal Samnites I can recommend those produced by A&A Miniatures, whose ranges go pretty much under the radar. A bit crude in places but really look the part. I bought an army of them last year and mixed them with those from Crusader Miniatures. A&A have monthly offers which makes them quite competitive. The March one if for cavalry which doesn't do much for an infantry-based Samnite army so see what they do in April!

Are your figures for sale scaled down to fit other Egyptians or was that just your private figures?

Hi Samson, I have scaled them down to 28mm to mix in with other brands, doing them at 90%..

So to sound thick. Do you mean you scaled them down 10% of what another company may do them. Eg scaled down 10% from the standard 28mm as originally designed?

Scaled down 10% to match in with most of figure companies ie Perry Victrix etc. As original they are very heroic scale so wouldn't mix in with anything. Don't know what other suppliers of this range are doing, but I did see one company state they are doing the same, sorry cant remember which one it was.

Just received a pack of the Egyptians.   Lovely figures and well produced. 
Just a tad small to fit in with what I had intended though which is a shame.   I guess Im in the minority of people whos existing figures are on the slightly larger scale.

Glad they arrived safely, sorry a bit too small for you. As the file is written, they are very much on the heroic scale ie 35mm foot to eye so don't match in with anything I own, hence the decision to reduce them to 28mm so they match with most metal and plastic manufacturers.

No problem at all Lancer.  Thats the reason I only ordered one pack.  If I ever decide to do an army at that scale though, what you sent was top notch.   No idea what resin you used but its lovely.

I received my order from another company. Also as yours scaled down. Totally amazing sculpts. The chariots are big and love them. All totally characterful.
By the way your chariots are the cheapest I have seen. Amazing deal. Will be sending soon for Sea People chariots.
