15mm Copplestone Barbarica range
« on: February 15, 2024, 02:00:49 AM »
Are there plans for anymore figures for Mark Copplestone’s 15mm Barbarica range? My Ice Tribes need leadership…

I also would be very eager to spend money on new figures from these ranges. For me, dwarf archers (with bows, not crossbows) are something I would jump at.

I'd like to see some with the lighter Pictish Latch crossbow, as opposed to the more usual heavy medieval style crossbows, and some character figures, preferably with a couple of spear armed characters.

Am I alone in also wanting to see some Scottish Wildcats? Perhaps a little larger than real life so as to match up to the wolves  ;D
I'm not a mercenary. Killing's more of a hobby for me.

Personally, I'd sooner see more 10mm rather than 15mm, though anything would be better than the current Toy Soldier range which leaves me cold.

I'd love to see his take on The Haradrim for example.
There are 100 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who can work from incomplete data.

Just in case not everyone knows this: Wiglaf Miniatures (https://wiglafminiatures.wordpress.com/) is also sculpted by Mark Copplestone. Although "historical" Dark Age miniatures there could be an extension possibility ? Although no dwarfs (;-)) at least sóme of them could be a sensible addition.

They are very nice (as you would expect from Mr Copplestone).

I ordered the Ice Tribe from North Star as some opposition to the Wiglaf.

Hi Barbarians, whilst I am not the master Copplestone himself, I do love the range...and will be releasing my own models which should cross over or expand into the Barbarica groundwork (and into various tropes).

Wildlings / Savage Tribes are certainly in the works, at least 50% female models as I feel that was a missed opportunity. Command, Mammoth and Characters are under way.

I will post future factions here too, if people are interested.

Thanks!

Forgot to mention, the 3rd Century Roman will be for historicals, but would be a fun opponent for a barbaric tribe...even if not strictly fantasy.

Well, that’s intriguing news. I’ll definitely be taking a close look at those when they’re released!

I've been using some of the Barbarica range as early hominids for the Primeval supplement for the Tribal rules. The Picts as homo heidelbergensis and some of the Barbarian range (those without shields or swords) as early homo sapiens.

That first figure would fit nicely into my early humans if I could work out how to disguise the sword on the belt.

Colour me interested in the coming range!

I reckon it should work, it's a sort of stylized dagger sheath, similar in size to the Icetribe ones (abit oversized for the scale), just pretend it's a flint or bone dagger :-)

Another teaser of the "Barrow Lords" for the forthcoming range...

Looking good from the two photos that are showing for me on an iPad i.e. the Roman & the wight. Couple of questions: (1) Who’s the sculptor? (2) Got any comparison shots with Copplestone’s figure?

1) I'm the sculptor, Mathias Rapp (Mace Face Miniatures on socials). Doing the 18mm Hawkmoon range for Eureka too..

2) I will get some comparison pictures up this week.
So far the figures are scaled more towards the Ice Tribe, as the original barbarians seem to be his smallest figures (depending on pose & pack possibly).
