I'm going to refurbish some units of elderly minis and could do with completing the units. Suggestions on figures to go with the following would be appreciated.

This is a 25mm Citadel figure which I would like to find command figures to complete the unit.

This is a 25mm Minifigs figure also needing command for his unit.

These elves are 25mm and on the small side and need some more to flesh out the tribe.

The matches do not need to be perfect they will normally be used as fantasy but near would be good.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Maybe check some like Hinds miniatures that sell used figures.

The Chaos Wars and Historical Ral Partha figures match well in scale to older Citadel. They've been re-releasing them in the past couple of years.

Their Fantasy Army range is more 28/28Heroic scale.

Strangely enough the Fantasy Army range is bigger so it can be used for Warhammer.

Thank you all. Better results so far than I expected but not as good as I hoped for..

The Historical Ral Partha does a Bysantine figure that might modify up to be an officer or standard bearer for the mounted figures with a bit of work. No matches for the elves so far.

Thank you. x42

The Hinds miniatures site also sells the old Hinchcliffe 25mm series from the 1970s; check out their Byzantines and you may find a good match for the first two.

Who manufactured these elves? I have never seen them before.

Doesn't Minifigs still do 25 mm?
