Hello guys.

I am ready to dive into American Wars and Napoleonic era warming. Since I really enjoy Lion Rampant on medieval warfare rules, I plan to start with the upcoming Rebels and Patriots rulebook for 1750-1865 battles.

I want to use plastic 1/72 (20mm-25mm) miniatures. I like Zvezda models but they only have French and Russian armies I believe. What other manufacturer and models would you recommend to use with Zvezda French? Americans, Mexicans, Perhaps British, Prussians?

The scale I plan to use is 1/72 to avoid confusion if 20mm or 25mm. Thanks again.

You need to take a good look through the Plastic Soldier Review site using the "periods" tab on the menu on the left hand side of the home page

Yes, thanks. I am already checking that. Any extra advice on personal experience on specific brands with good diversity and availability in USA is also welcomed.

Check out the Hobby Bunker website, they have 1/72nd scale figures from multiple companies. Always great stuff there.

You can get a great value with HAT if you are just starting off. Their figures do come in a soft plastic that some don't like but they have a great range of figures. If I could figure out how to include pics, I would.
