from 1/72 to 28mm?

Hi,

Is there any 1/72 miniatures out there that people would like to see in 28mm?

Never thought about it.
I like both scales though i think some 1/72 miniatures really have silly poses but Most of the latest 1/72 stuff is fine to me.
Didn't HÄt produce some of their miniatures in 28 mm ?

All of them. No, on a more serious note is this just a 'what if' or something that could become a reality.

Yes they did and I have some. Andalusian, Almoravid and so on.

They are horrible. Truly awful, combining as they do the appalling lack of detail of most 1/72nds (but in greater and lesser measure) while being even more fragile.

I have managed to use some of the shields on other figures. I used the heads in a creative fashion with a stand of prisoners buried in the sand and about to be trampled by an elephant.

@  WillieB

Just checked out Minairons Spanish Civil War figures and they would look nice in 28mm  :)
