I'm looking for a manufacturer who makes SYW figures that are Small 15mm, 5/8 to 3/4 of an inch tall base to top of the head.

I have some that are not in production anymore and they need opponents. I need to find something that are 18mm or 15mm figures aspiring to be taller.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Hi there,
Have you tried Freikorps figures? they are on the smaller side of 15mm and in my opinion well designed figures.
Besides, the range is quite extensive.
Minifigs and Essex also are suitable for your pourposes.

Friekorp used to have a very bad reputation because they used a very brittle white metal. Have they changed their formula?

Essex are short and fat figures. Minifigs are more willowy.

Mikes Models? I thought they became part of Essex in the late 1980s…..

FrieKorps has changed the metal used.
Essex did buy Mike's Models but I don't think they actually produce the figures.

Warrior Miniatures 18th Century. Lovely figures, small 15's.

The Frei Korps metal change is ancient history. The range has been a property of QRF for many years.

no pics at all on the Warrior Mins site…That's a non starter.

As many people say Freikorps don't use the old brittle metal any longer. As far as Mike's Model are concerned I think they can sell old ranges on demand.

I appreciate the information. Warrior minis do have a gallery with measurements, which helps, even though 18th century figures aren't shown.
