Here is an inexhaustive list for gamers who are looking around for a variety of different models and model manufacturers to make different cool army lists for Armies of Arcana or any other reason. This list is by no means exhaustive and you are all welcome to add to it.


Reaper make some great minis as most of you know...

For Reaper distribution in the UK got to MiniFigs who are based in Southampton and they will have a delivery service of any Reaper model within 7-10 days available from the Minifigs website along with a lot of other model varieties from Minifigs themselves.

Vendel also make some really nice models, my personal fave is their Goblin range, very realistic, their Dwarves were commented on by the legendary Perry twins who said they thought that the Vendel Dwarves were the most accurate depiction of a dwarf they had ever seen from any manufacturer, high praise indeed. Check out the resin Giant and the War Elephants, super models, also have a look at the War Dogs they paint up very nicely.

Dave at Museum miniatures is a classic bloke who has been in the industry for years, I'm very happy with the 15mm Carthaginian army I collected from museum Miniatures over the last 3-4 years.

From Eric R. we have Irregular miniatures, rated at 25mm they are a tad small but still eminently usable and they are cheap which is always a nice element to find from a figure company.

I take it that these are mostly 25-28mm figure manufacturers? Do most of them make good 15mm figures? I can't afford to buy armies in 25mm.

most of us play 28mm, but i know Thane origionally designed the game for 15mm

Thanks. I've already got quite a lot of 15mm figures from Demonworld, Blood Dawn, Eureka, Alternative Armies and others, just looking for any more companies I wasn't aware of.

Not really miniatures per se, but there's a World of Warcraft figure range that could stand in for titans with a bit of a paintjob:

Nice find Obscader. Any idea how tall these things are or if the feet fit on a base 9?

7-9 inches high I believe Guv'nor.

Whether or not they'll fit on a base 9 is anybodies guess! But I presume the one's that are standing straight will be fine.

Yup - I think it's the guy on this forum who is trying to contact EB (or some such mod) to get his normal user name activated - currently under the user name "clueless".

Its a new game with pre-painted plastics so not my sort of thing

However, under the Roman cavalry pack they have Roman Legionairres riding bears which would make a cool unit.

They don't look very pre-painted in a lot of the photos...

.... but in others they do... strange Confused

Starter set seems to have over 120 models, for about £30

And the roman bear riders (4 of them!) + 10 other cavelry for £12 looks pretty darn amazing value! Shocked
