THE PLASTIC FIGURES
Manufacturer’s Designation and Number of Poses:
The plastic figures come from two of Strelets’ mini-sets M001 “Normans” and M002 “Norman Archers.” Strelets introduced the mini-sets as a way to bring more subjects forward without the expense of producing 48 individual sculpts. Each of these sets includes 48 figures, but comprised of 4 copies of 12 poses.
Strelets has released a large range of sets covering the Dark Ages and early Medieval Europe.
M001 Height (measured from ground to eyes): 21mm. M002 Height (measured from ground to eyes): 21mm. M001 Height (measured from ground to top of head): 23mm. M002 Height (measured from ground to top of head): 23mm.
Availability and Cost:
These sets were introduced in 2006, and are easily found in online and physical stores.
Notes on the Samples:
The samples were obtained in a trade with Carlos Faro.
This blog is concerned with military miniatures that are about one inch high. To be specific, it deals with figures described as being in the following scales: 20mm, 22mm, "traditional" or "true" 25mm, HO, 1/72 or 1/76.
The focus of the blog is to help plastic wargamers select metal figures to complement their forces, and vice versa. To do this, it presents a series of images comparing various metal ranges to plastic ranges for similar subjects.
Rather than follow the blog day by day, most users will want to search for the ranges they are considering, by clicking on the labels below.
