hi all: So I have boxes of unpainted 1/72 figures. Both Revell and IMEX…and even some old Airfix.

I really like the size of these figures but given that AWI battles can be fought with less than 100 figures…thinking of making the jump to metal figures.

Need recommendations for:
-metal figures in 20mm-HO-1/72
-AND ESPECIALLY…figures in this range for which there is still lots of figures available on eBay.

thanks!

Would you be happy with small " true 25mm" figures?

Not a whole lot available in metal, and I wouldn't expect to find any of it on ebay. Check out Irregular, and BandB Miniatures.

Here's an old thread from 2010 that may help…

Decent figures, good selection and reasonable price, but no web site.

Other 20mm options would be Hagen Miniatures – beautiful figures but the AWI range is very limited, Irregular Miniatures also do AWI a reasonable range but fairly basic figures and variable – some poses are OK others are debatable but can be fine with a a good paint job.
On the other hand you could go for 15mm as Blue Moon do a big and good range – in fact the period is very well served in 15mm and there are plenty of rule-sets. For a free set (find with Google) 'Loose Files and American Scramble' is hard to beat and can easily be customised to suit your tastes.

How coincidental- we had been consulting the Frying Pan and Blanket figures today,as we are looking to ramp up(even more) our Honours of War games with some Austrians,metals mixed with plastic,cause its not reresented all that well in that scale.

Another vote for B&B Miniatures (the only one – I think – that provides pose variations for the R&F):-
