Foundry North West Frontier
« on: March 03, 2009, 11:16:32 AM »
Does anyone have any pictures of the foundry North West Frontier range of figures?
I have a load of Baluchi's that I'm painting for this setting at the moment and I am considering buying some of the Indian miniatures when I've completed these ones.
I was just wondering what the NWF ones looked like in comparison with these, they are still available if I contact foundry but I don't really want to get anything without seeing them first.

Thanks, Mark

A mix of figures in my NW Frontier gallery here - all Foundry, pretty much.

Thanks Captain Blood, it was your post from a while ago that actually inspired me.
You have some really gorgeous figures there!

Also, I was just wondering if they will fit in with Copplestone BoB, I've heard that they're quite a bit smaller?

Thanks

They are more or less true 25mm , so will be very small in comparison to Copplestones stuff.

Although they are not an outrageously bad fit with Copplestone's Baluchis for Foundry. I use both types in my Pathan forces. They mix reasonably well.

IMHO you can use Foundry darkest africa baluchis with Copplestone, but the NW-Frontier range doesn't work with either.

The Minis are smaller, slimmer and the weapons look like toys compared to the larger ranges (only in comparison, on their own they are really OK. One of the best of the older Foundry ranges).

Thanks for the help
Think I'll stick with the Darkest Africans/Indian figures then

Thanks for the link, they look like a nice range of figures.
I am quite picky about my scale and figure sizes though so I'm thinking they'll probably be too small.
When I get round to placing my next order I might try a pack and see.
