Salutations, gentlefolk !

Would like to acquire in the near future (pick up at Cold Wars if possible):

15mm figures of Queens Zenobia and Boudicca, suitable for 'command stands'. Also interested in learning of other 'personality figures'.

The troops for a Palmyran army for DBA / Triumph / LAdlG 100 pt. Recommendations for the best cataphracts, archers, etc are earnestly sought.

Chariots for Ancient Brits, Scots-Irish, Picts, etc (Will first be filling OOB of Outpost Picts, on from there in '18…)

Thanks very much for your help with these.

Have you tried Splintered Light Miniatures?

link is now out-of-date but most of the listed figures are still available including the Donnington and Irregular Zenobia figures.
The Corvus Belli Boudicca is due to be re-released now that the range is to be made under licence.
Forged in Battle have made a Boudicca but only as a Kickstarter backer benefit. They do make the various chariots you are looking for. They do not have a specific Palmyran range and the bags might be a bit big for DBA etc. However if that is not a problem you could find just about all you need from them.

I thought Irregular Miniatures did a Zenobia on camel figure in 15mm.

They do. I have two, one for my DBA Palmytan army, the second commands my HoTT Amazon army

Viking Forge has Palmyran Cats and light horse. No foot, although they have Sassanid foot archers and Roman Auxiliary that could do.

Poses are more static than is currently popular.

OG15s have Cats, light horse, and foot archers. A bit larger and it was a tight squeeze getting four Cats on a 40x30. Well animated though.

The Cats from the Battle Honors Sassanid range are generic enough to be used for Palmyrans as well. A bit more expensive. Haven't painted and based mine yet.

Donnington has nice figures, haven't painted them up yet and they are UK, so shipping time to consider. But they do have a Zenobia and Boudicca.

Same with Essex.

Here are some photos of my Palmyrans for an idea (OG15s, VF, old Essex, and Minifigs) -


OG on the left VF or the right.


OG left, VF center and right.


Minifigs left, Old Essex left of center, OG right.

OG Romans for the DBA 'a' list -


Colors are a bit washed out, but size and animation can be seen.

P.S. I think Stever that photobucket takes that title…
