Think that they would be useful for other periods of History.

Hope you enjoy!.

With those hats, not for anything earlier than 19th century.

Are these 25 mm? Anybody ordered from this company before?

Looks useful to me, not enough unarmed civilians available for any time period.

Bob--My guess is that they are part of the 25mm Belgian WWI range that they have been slowly releasing.

28mm, in fact. They scale nicely with Foundry, Renegade etc.

All of them are from photographs of Belgian refugees taken in 1914.

Hi guys, they are indeed part of the 28mm WW1 range, having seen the range at SELWG, style-wise they would mix well with Empress, Foundry, Musketeer et al. Brigade Games are absolutely fantastic in terms of customer service, both in speed of processing orders and helping out on individual items you might need, cannot recommend them highly enough, top lads simple as that.

@Johny Boy thanks very much for the endorsement thumbs up. One minor correction we are Brigade *Models*, not the unconnected Brigade *Games*

Just bumping this subject 'cos they're being released tomorrow at Salute grin

Lovely. I hope they come as separate male and female packs, as the male figures will do for virtually the entire 20th Century (the one with the flat cap looks like my granddad in the 1980s/90s), whereas the female fashions pin them firmly around WW1.

The female figure with all the luggage would be very useful for later time periods, except for all the junk she's carrying. Why can't sculptors make the basic figures and have the junk as add-ons? A person might buy one figure carrying all the stuff, but buy multiple figures if they were allowed to convert them on their own.

Those male figures are excellent I could use a couple of each give them 1938 weapons and they're in the very British Civil War.

Figures have now been released – link

Available as a set of six, separate male/female sets (as requested grin) and as individual figures.

Brilliant! :)

I ordered the set of 6!

Patrice10 May 2013 1:41 p.m. PST

Very interesting. More civilians please!

There was a bike in the early stages-will it be released?

Personal logo Bobgnar Supporting Member of TMP24 May 2013 9:10 p.m. PST

My order came in about 4-5 business days. Very nice figures. While unarmed, the men can easily be converted to rifles or other firearms, some of the women too. For those who might wonder about relative size, I post a couple of pictures of a variety of popular ranges for comparison.

Yes – that's intended for Belgian cyclist troops.
