Hello everyone

Someone knows it if there exists in the trade, figurines of 25/30 mm representing the characters of the 2004 American epic period war film "Troy" written by David Benioff and directed by Wolfgang Petersen with Brad Pitt.

Or, who resembles them strangely …

Thank you

Well, that's when Schliemann dug it up…….grin

Redoubt's 28mm range is very similar to the armor etc in the movie. They have a nice large range which can be purchased individually. However they are not strictly speaking "portrait figures", some are eerily similar. Menelaus for one.

Yes but I want strictly "portrait figures" or almost … otherwise it's less fun …

Wargames Foundry does a few sets that are very much inspired by the movie, and their historical range is top notcj.

Here is some of what I have done, Paris and Priam are from the Foundry, Achilles from Bronze Age Miniatures, all should fit your bill:

The movie ones are from the offshoot of Foundry, Casting Room:

Can be Achilles from wargames foundry, it would be necessary to compare it with photographs of the film.

Search the Foundry website for the pack, "Legendary Greek Warriors (WG405)." I think that will come pretty close, especially for Axilleus. I believe the complimentary pack for the Trojan princes and Priam to fill the bill for you is "The Warriors Priam Hector Paris and Guards (WG406)."
