Do you know any other? While I like Redbox they do not fit my current project.

I'd suggest older manufacturers that made 'true' 28mm figures, like Ral Partha (some sculpts by Tom Meier and Chris Fitzpatrick) and Grenadier (sculpts by Julie Guthrie). Still, the LotR dwarves are pretty unique in style and design.

Maybe the Vendel dwarfs are a nice size?


Why aim for gold if you can get lead?

No, The Vendel ones are too big.

Hasslefree are closer, I think.

Possibly Denizen too as their stuff is true 25mm from the old days.

Hasslefree just released these-


not sure about actual height, but in proportions they look realistic like the LotR ones.

Those are a bit nice..   :-*

Didn't know that the Vendel dwarfs had the wrong size..  They were already on the want list for ages though, but that I have to order them from the US nowadays made them drop quite far down the list..   :'(

Wow! I'm definitely sold on those Hasslefree minis - I think I may just pick them up next payday (which isn't until end of the month unfortunately).
