These do look good, keen to see any photos in comparison with GW figures

I'll get that fixed for you when mine get here. :)

That would be great!

Just spent rather a lot on eBay - so am hesitating on getting these on spec, as they are a little on the expensive side.

Mmmm.. The evil men could be easily converted to Early Imperial Romans  with those square shields...

Thanks for the comparison pic

No problem.

One of these days I need to get a macro lens or better.

Thanks for the photos and the review.

One question - do the look similar in size to WM figures? As models are 3D it can sometimes be hard to tell from a pho if they match in when you are looking at the real figures. These certainly do from the front on shots.

Edmund - why would you want to convert to Romans, there are lots of 10mm Romans out there.

I'd say they match Copplestone spot on which I perceive as slightly bigger than GW. I've never had a problem with fielding Copplestone and GW in the same army.

Good news.

The GW figures don't exactly match each other when you put them side by side - but look fine in when in units on the table.

Exactly. The Bretonnians e.g. are of a quite diminutive build. Must be all that praying to the lady and fasting I guess.

It is just an idea. I would not build a roman army from these, but maybe for a specific pose or figure.

Thanks for the review!

I ordered two sets last week, can't wait to paint them up! I hope there will be more of this in the future. :)

A comparison pic. The pack comes with 6 strips (5 different strips variants), but some figures are re-used in the strips.

Thanks Edmund! 

They look brilliant - I've had trouble getting people excited for LOTR 10mm though.

Looking the picture, they are tall, but will be OK for me
