What scale? 28mm? They're a lot pricey for 15mm.

Yes 28mm.

I have them and I have painted a few.

The sculptures are neat, well proportioned and historically accurate. Casting is average. It uses a soft alloy, which means that some details are not as crisp as they could have been -be careful with the primer, or you risk to lose details under the coat of paint-. In the plus side, the softness of the allow makes easy to clean up the mould lines. I particularly like the poses.

In a scale 1-10 I would give them a 7. Recommended.

Good looking sculpts: looking forward to seeing the American Range.

I don't know if they will do more Spanish first but they will probably be followed by Cubans then Americans probably Filipinos and hopefully "MOROS".

They look like very nice figures from the small images I could see.

If they expect to do business with the largest consumers of wargame figures, most of who's residents are monolingual, the company should consider putting their prices in dollars or pounds, and give commentary in English. I don't know whether I'm paying $85 USD for those figures or $8.50 USD

They have an English link for the entire website in the upper right corner. I bought the one of everything plus free figure deal and including shipping it came out to about $1.77 USD USD per figure. I can't see any reason to complain about that :-)
