Looking for French Foreign Legion
« on: March 20, 2008, 11:50:26 AM »
Hi

Some time ago I saw a new range of FFL miniatures and Arabs, but I can't remember which company produce them nor can't find them at the web.  :oops:

Can anybody help me?

Here they are:

Also for comparisons: redoubt Enterprises, Old Glory Miniatures and Askari Miniatures(very comprehensive range).

Hi,

I have a couple of French Foreign Legionaires in my Lead Mountain.
If you looking for the classic Beau Geste Legionaire I recommend Unfeasibly.

Cheers
Björn

They are Old Glory.
The Officer with the pistol aiming is Unfeasibly.
The mules are Foundry.

Thanks, I recognised the Unfeasibly officer, but didnt know the others. They are nice looking figures. I always find the Old Glory ranges a lottery, some are  gorgeous figures and some downright mingers :lol:

You are right with Old Glorys

The Old Glory Foreign Legion Range is ok.
I have them for years now so I think they are a little out of age.
The faces are  not that great. Only 4 variants I think.

I have some WW1 Germans and I remember Grimm saying they look great and he was completely surprised when I told him that they are from OG.

The Sudanese Beja are also good. Whenever I play with them at cons people think they are Perrys. And thats a compliment isnt it ?

Happy Eastern

If you are interested in French Foreign Legion, then you probably already are familiar with this link.  But I think it's a good idea to post this Red Shadow link every now and then, just to make sure people have seen it:

Thanks for all the useful advice, guys!

The pics are stunning, Bjorn. Love them.

I will buy Unfeasibly minis, though is a shame they have not available mounted Tuaregs :freak:

I guess they must be a bit behind schedule. Hopefully they are still in the pipeline.

Hi
Why Not try The Redoubt Range??
There is a lot more variation,and the figures look good ,the other unfeasible mob lack enough variation for me , although they are nice.
Forget the old glory FFL ,all though the Arabs I have from them are very nice and they will give you some more variation rather than that Cloaked Taurag look all the time

Hope so. The miniatures look very nice and I would like to have all my figures coming from the same manufacturer.
