Could anybody tell me what the size is of the Mirliton Medievals are? Are they big 28's? I really like the character they get in their figures.

The ex-Grenadier, Copplestone figures are not "big 28s" and the Mirliton sculpts are similar.

Contact me via tinyurl.com/3c8cvg if you need anything else.

Thanks, I'm still not clear on what size they actually are…Can you give me a comparison?

The ones I have are more 25mm.

I would be interested too…What's the measure from toes to eyes?

Mirliton Barbarians sculpted by Mark Coppelstone are larger than Foundry German barbarians, though they fit together very well because of the same sculptor.

Mirliton ex Coppelstone medievals are average 28mm, slightly larger than Old Glory, slightly smaller than Front Rank. They are larger than 15th century Foundry that are closer to 25mm. Horses are smaller than Front Rank, very much so, fit perfectly with Old Glory or Foundry.

Original Mirliton medievals are slightly slimmer than ex Grenadier/Coppelstone.

Mirliton medievals will fit very well with other 28mm, but not with giant Front Rank figures that are more like 32mm. Also, when painted figures tend to look more compatible. I have a photo of Mirliton ex Grenadier pikeman next to Foundry pikemen, they look like from the same company.

Some of the true Mirliton figures are up to 32mm tall, but tend to look good next to other shorter figures. This is because the figures are thinner ( more correct ) and look like the tall lanky type of warrior.
