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)."

Yes, I saw this thanks …

By far the Legendary Greek Warriors (WG405) resemble the characters of the film, but not at 800% … Too bad, I will make it because no figurines exactly resemble the original model …

by cons the Warriors Priam Hector Paris and Guards (WG406) it's not Hollywood.

However, it seems that the Redoubt figurines were copied from Peter Connolly's book 'The Ancient Greece of Odysseus' …
This is nice …

Yes Come In Nighthawk but there are also Relic Miniatures, but the Green Stuff is going to have to be used …

Ah I forgot, at the same time,if anyone knows where to find the Redoubt Trojan horse in picture on the GrandManner site, let me know via a personal message, thank you.

Relic only seems to sell "specialty," that is, character figures, not a variety of "warrior" figures, like Foundry or Redoubt.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP23 Sep 2017 8:33 a.m. PST

Yes but they are interesting…

Merely making an observation -- for those of us looking for "warriors" for games like SAGA, or larger-still, like "Hail Caesar!" Not a criticism!!! Indeed, have been thinking about getting a few of the Relic figures myself, to use as "Leaders" and "Chieftains!"

The Trojan Horse is back up on Grand manner's website. Some painted ones available as well.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP25 Sep 2017 8:08 a.m. PST

Relic figures to use as Iliad hero, me too this is what I do.

@ OneHuaiTicket… What figure did you use for "Briseis?"

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP30 Oct 2017 6:48 a.m. PST

Any figurine of Mycenaean or Minoan woman shirtless will do the trick.
