If anyone has some of this new range I would love to know what size 15's these are. They look fantastic. I have plenty of Minifigs and Essex. I'm hoping they would fit in.

Here's a link to the Khurasan Ottomans:

Hi. If you go to their site and click the "ordering" link the page it takes you to has a size comparison section with link along with the usual ordering info. The picture the link takes you to shows a Khurasan mini compared to other manufacturers.

I think they ought to fit with Essex, though they might be proportioned slightly differently they are roughly the same height and heft. They were sculpted to fit with the other Khurasan 16th century figures, so are about 15mm sole to eye. Steve Dean mixed some of the mounted figures with Essex horses and they seem to fit well enough;

Thanks, Secsesh & clibinarium for answering. Wow, those really are compatible! Clibinarium, if you sculpted them then I know they are a great size for me. I buy almost all the 15mm figures you design because they are absolutely my favorite. Forgive me for gushing but I am a true fan! I've been acquiring your Late 16th Century Europe figures, ECW Scots and Irish. What a talent you have!

Cheers!

Thank you, that's very kind of you to say. I've been having a bad couple of weeks with motivation for sculpting and hearing that you are enjoying the figures is a real boost. I do think the late 16th century is a fascinating period, I don't know why it doesn't get more attention from gamers than it does.

You will only get encouragement from me. I had given up on Tyrone's Rebellion and the 80 Years War till your sculpts appeared at Khurasan. Your historical authenticity, attention to detail, realistic proportions, are all a marvel. Plus, you haven't succumbed to the typical scale creep that is rather rampant in the industry. Your figures match quite well with all my Minifigs, Essex, Matchlock, Freikorps etc. Not to mention matching the scenery that I have been collecting and creating for years.

Soooooooo . . . Are you sculpting some new 15s?! Anything you'd care to reveal? :)

Cheers!

Thanks for that. Scale creep is a constant danger which has to be guarded against. I haven't always been successful in this but if you keep the heft the same I think that's important for maintaining a consistent look as people just naturally differ in height. Realistic proportions were starting to become more fashionable when I started sculpting, so I missed the era of big heads and such. Research is important, I quite like to work from contemporaneous sources, which is possible in the internet age, though I have had help from some very knowledgeable TMP members; Daniel S the foremost as far as the 16th century line goes.

New work? well I can't really say on unannounced ranges. For the 16th Century- There'll be some tweaks in the Ottoman range; helmeted cavalry will be getting turbaned head-swaps. There are three more Western European countries to get figures, they are sculpted a while back and are in the pipeline (in fact they may have be previewed here already). There will probably be more Eastern European figures in the future.
Currently there's a 17th century project on my desk but I can't be more specific yet.

This is very intriguing . . . If there were previews, I might have missed them. Still, I can guess some of the other major players in the late 16th and will be quite pleased to see them at Khurasan!

The 17th Century; so many possibilities. Whatever they are I know they will be quality.

Many thanks for the update and the fine work you do!

Hi Clib could you light a fire under Khursan I am waiting for more of the 16th century release.

I would also love you to do the French revolution in 10mm as was discussed in what seems like decades ago.

I also have to put in my compliments on your work, I rate you and Antony Barton as some of the most talented 15mm sculptors ever.

William
