Are there any of these in 'true' 25mm scale other than Warrior miniatures and Minifigs? I'm getting more 'old school' as I get older…

Maybe Essex miniatures

The 1st Corps figures are smaller than average and fit with 25mm ….. but are not true 25mm

Ral Partha. I'm in the process of rehabilitating a whole pile of them.

Check out Rafms ancients, they are compatible with Ral Partha.

Hi all thanks for the advice.

Bashytubits, RAFM are lovely but I can't find Punic Wars era Romans in their list.

mckrok Are Ral PArtha available new anymore?

- Not that I know of.

How many and what types are you looking for? I'm sure I have some extras I won't ever finish.

Hobhood4, if you had typed in Ral Partha Ancients into a google search you would have found as the first listing Iron Wind Metals. Under Ancients there is a listing for Republican Romans. I don't mean to be cheeky but come on, do a bit of research for yourself.


The only problem with Iron Wind is that he wants $4 USD a figure. So not very cost effective. I like some of the figures but frankly with the great product available today I can't see going down in quality for more money.

Ral Partha ancients are still "Available" from the original moulds/masters from Iron Wind Metals, the successor company.

For $5 USD each (Ugh)' ie unaffordable for a lot of us except for a couple of single figures.

Thanks guys for the heads up about the other site.

Thanks mcKrok, I'm looking for about 50 Hastati/Principes, about 16 Triarii and 8 ish Velites. However, I'm in the UK so this may be an issue/problem

mckrok07 Aug 2017 1:30 p.m. PST

I'll see what I have laying around over the next day or two. I know I have plenty of velites, but am not sure how many Hastati/Principes or Triarii remain. I don't need them, so you can have them.

Thanks McKrok…

mckrok10 Aug 2017 3:55 p.m. PST

I only have a few Hastati/Principes or Triarii remaining, but a friend of mine has a pile. E-mail me at You can probably talk him out of them for the cost of shipping.
