Any USA companies that make 15mm skaven/ratmen?? I've been searching high and low for USA companies. I'm wanting to build a 15mm ratman army to fight my 15mm British next winter. A Nut Cracker battle over Christmas with the kids.
thanks for any links or referrals.

The Chariot Miniatures from Magister Militum are the best. Little Wars in Texas sells them. The Splintered Light ones are good as well.

Note, however, that the Splintered Light ratmen from the Druid's Children line (Bob Olley sculpts) are big, really more like 20mm or so. They will look very big against true 15mm humans. David doesn't really market them as 15mm.

Some have used the SL kobolds as skaven, I believe.

See SEVERAL messages and links in this thread, with pics, of using the SL kobolds as ratmen.

Check a few packs of the Pendraken 10mm rats. They are really quite big for 10, but would make a decent large rat in 15mm.

IMO the Splintered Light minis would work for Ratmen. In my mind ratmen always are the size of humans. Now they are not the creepy looking Skaven of GW. YMMV.

The Chariot line has ratmen with muskets, bows, swords, polearms (I think) and the command pack has the leader with a crown. Reminded me of the Nutcracker rat types. They are true 15mm. I agree the detail is not as good as SL types but the Chariot miniatures are very nice. I wouldn't use the SL Kobolds because they look like Kobolds…..they are the best 15mm Kobolds out there. You can see the Pendraken Ratmen on the Kallistra site.

Is it 2018 already? Upon digging up this thread, I found this blog to be spot-on to the points of this post:
