Okay I need some 25mm primatives to fight my Atlanteans,
kinda of an at the Earth's Core game.
A bronze age civilization holding off barbaric semi-humans.
I do have a tight budget so I was considering the Wargames Factory Orcs, but that's my last resort.

what about this


The Gray Ghost28 Jun 2011 11:55 a.m. PST

Who makes those primitive orcs, Bueada?

Personal logo timurilank Supporting Member of TMP28 Jun 2011 11:59 a.m. PST

If you were thinking about Orcs, then – ESAIR TROGS -
from Baueda might work.


There is even a US distributor.

Personal logo D6 Junkie Supporting Member of TMP28 Jun 2011 12:01 p.m. PST

Yeah, the Bueada Trogs were my first choice,
but initial cost and shipping was going to strain my budget.
I'll probably need about 40-50 figs.

Contacted Wargames to see if they still have some in stock.

The Gray Ghost28 Jun 2011 12:10 p.m. PST

How about some berserkers or early germans they are usually pretty crude.

John Leahy28 Jun 2011 12:20 p.m. PST

Why not GW Lizardmen in plastic. You can use both the big and smaller figs.

Mulligan28 Jun 2011 12:28 p.m. PST

How about Pulp Figures and/or Copplestone Castings cavemen?


drummer Supporting Member of TMP28 Jun 2011 12:37 p.m. PST

Lizardmen would be cool. You know you could just buy fewer Trogs and make them tougher.

I am going to suggest some laser rifles for the Atlanteans. Nothing says "Atlantis" better than Mycenean Greeks with lasers. Surely someone produces them.

The Gray Ghost28 Jun 2011 2:39 p.m. PST

as you are going for 25mm what about Eurekas Tupi indians?

Personal logo D6 Junkie Supporting Member of TMP28 Jun 2011 3:12 p.m. PST

No laser rifles for the Atlanteans!
Though I could see a few 'mirrors of the gods'

Lizardmen huh? That might be an option certainly
would be within the budget.

Might look at those Tupis,
Keep the ideas coming guys.

drummer Supporting Member of TMP28 Jun 2011 3:46 p.m. PST


Oh come on. Just imagine a few of the Atlanteans packing one of these!

The Gray Ghost28 Jun 2011 4:01 p.m. PST

what are you using for Atlanteans?

The Gray Ghost28 Jun 2011 4:23 p.m. PST

I have seen novice aztec warriors used as primitive warriors they usually come in just a loincloth and most are cast with open hands.

Personal logo D6 Junkie Supporting Member of TMP28 Jun 2011 4:24 p.m. PST

Myceneans for Atlanteans/Lost civilization.

Was hoping for a ERB style: last of an ancient
race holding out against primatives.

And no lasers, drummer boy! At least no obvious lasers.

Greylegion28 Jun 2011 4:56 p.m. PST

How about Twilight miniatures for your primitives.

Cacique Caribe28 Jun 2011 6:02 p.m. PST


I have a pack of the Baueda Trogs that you can have as a gift.

Maidenhead link link or Shadowforge 'tribals' link
Better looking (and more 'realist', if you think about it) than any Orc / Troll.

Personal logo D6 Junkie Supporting Member of TMP29 Jun 2011 6:18 a.m. PST

Hey Guys,
I really appreciate all the ideas!
You are most gracious,
love to take a look at those figs.

The Gray Ghost29 Jun 2011 8:58 a.m. PST

Some cheap arrow fodder can be had from Castaway in his ancient range, Zagros Highlanders, Midianites and Philistines.
Also check out His early Mahadists they are wearing a long cloth wrap called a tobe, I have about a hundred of these and I use them through different periods.

Thanks Gray Ghost,
I'll have to check those out.

Cavemen? Very 'Pellucidar'!
TMP link
Black (can be painted in any skin color) Amazons?

To add variety to the Atlanteans, some 'Ancient-looking' minis elsewhere used as 'Barsoom Martians' can be inspirational; a few 'historical', most 'fantasy' ('humans' from Crocodile Games, for Tekumel, even Elves):

The Cavalcade Amatzls look nice link but typically 'Mesoamerican', and the range is currently very limited.
Then of course there are the Shadowforge 'Maiden Guards' for the Temples of Light and of Dark ('Fantasy' range) link
