Okay I am considering OGAM. I wanted to see what options are out there for 28mm wargaming. I expect most of these figures to to be taller so size isn't really important to me. I am open to any of the clip or toy soldiers. Even some options from 40mm and 56mm ranges.

Here is a brief list of who I know produces. Please add

Relic miniatures
Wargames foundry
Northstar
Hasslefree
Crocodile games

Who else?

Thanks

Reaper has many figures that could be used including giants, Valkyries, Thor, Heracles and a ton of Egyptian themed stuff.

Black Tree Designs has some good creatures and mythical beasts, plus fantasy Saracens which have been released has a separate download. Also, I use 54mm plastic Vikings as my Norse god characters.

Bronze Age Miniatures makes some Norse and Greek figures.

I wouldn't dismiss 15mm for the human size, as you can then draw on 28mm for gods and such.

SHQ do a full set of Greek gods and some Norse and Roman ones. They were sculpted by Jim Bowen and the ones I have are really nice.

For 54mm BMC/Billy Boy carries Greeks:

Even the "Romans" in this line look Greekish.

You can get these at Hobby Lobby more often than not and use the discount coupon.

There are Egyptian Undead:

ToysRus sells these in a larger set on the isle with the toy guns and such.

Papo has an entire line of 90mm Beastmen for them to battle…including a Minotaur:

link

You can use action figures from Harryhausen's works, etc. Just Google Mythology Action figure. You will find stuff like this:

Awhile back there were "Pirate" and "Mythology" action figures at Target. They still show up on Ebay:

The Cyclops is great but way overpriced here:

And these 54mm Prepaints are $20 USD but worth looking at:

auction

I bet the latter is sold elsewhere at a cheaper price.

Not being much of a historical buff, I can't think of too many offhand, but any company that has an ancient, dark age, or Asian range in 25 or 28mm is going to be a good source for "mortals".

-Old Glory, and Black tree are great bargain sources.
-Wargames Factory and Warlord have plastic ranges that could be useful for ancients and vikings.
-Essex has a classic look that a lot of folks like
-Perry makes excellent figures in plastic and metal
-I don't recall the company, but the Clan War series of miniatures have a lot of possibilities.
etc, etc.

Some of the above have good figures for Heroes and Gods.
