RAFM appear to be doing sets of Vikings aimed at Saga players.

Are these new castings of old figures? Are they typically 25mm scale rather than modern 28mm?

RAFM had a line of Viking-esque barbarians. I've used some of them with my Foundry/Old Glory/Gripping Beast Vikings, and they mix in well enough. These don't look like the same figures. Some of them could be the barbarians reworked and re-equipped, though I'm not really sure.

Afaik, I do have the monk and dog in that set (lower left) for perhaps 20 years…
I would be surprised if the other models are new sculpts.

The third figure in the bottom row (with his9 arms up) is their old "Wind wizard" (or some such – came with a wind elemental; there was a set of four Wind, Fire, Water & Earth, each with an elemental companion in the blister).
I've had one for years.

Aside from that, the authenticity varies from 'sort-of-OK' to 'melt it down.'

Ah! 'Tribe of the Midnight Sun' listings from 2007 (although they are older)

SAGA is hot again. My husband is making a Norman warband.

Maybe he will stop buying blood bowl figures…

So…they are RAFM 25mm??

Yes, a bit big for Ralpartha and a bit small for Citadel.
