I think someone else asked this exact same question last week or the week before.

I am not surprised to hear that this question may have been asked before.
However, with the Message Board search function turned off, finding anything on this site is a chore.
If someone could point me to another post that helps me find 28MM African Animals, I will be happy to go there!

Foundry do some
So do North Star
Also, don't overlook toy plastic animals, which are often near 28mm scale.

Acheson Creations

Those are my top picks for sculpt quality and general variety.

LOL. Yep. And believe it or not, I've looked and now I can't find the thread. I thought it was in the Pulp Discussion Board, but I don't see it.

Black Tree Design and Irregular also have some African animals; Black Tree in its Zulu range, and Irregular in amongst its other animals. The bigger animals can be quite heavy in metal so, as StoneMtnMinis says, plastic toys can be useful, particularly as a substitute for elephants and the like.

When I did my African Adventure collection most of the animals I used were toy plastic animals I got at the swap meet. They offer a lot of variety and in terms of scale finding African animals that were compatible with 28mm was not a problem. I assume they originally came in play sets found in toy stores. You can see the ones I did if you look at my African Adventure Gallery (100 pictures in diorama form). Scroll down my gallery page (19 galleries); it is the bottom gallery on the left… just click on the picture and scroll through the 100 pictures and lots of animals at

Acheson Creations does a lot of them and is reasonably priced.
