Which company has the nicest range(s) for 19th century in any scale? Beauty of the sculpts, development of all necessary troop types and staff officers etc.

Pendraken in 10mm

Which part of the 19th century, and where? It was a busy time for wars, hundreds of colonial spats besides the dozens of major unpleasantnesses

1898 Miniaturas for their Spanish American and Philippines ranges are as nice as any miniatures I've ever seen. They are 28mm

I mean post Napoleonic and pre WW1.

For me, this Carlist range from Perry is fascinating. Unfortunately, I am already heavily invested in Napoleonic Peninsula and this seems too much like Peninsula II. Otherwise, I would jump in it.

Look at Iron Duke's Indian Mutiny range. It is very nice.

I did the Carlist Wars, it is a great range.

Black Watch, Solferino 20 mm range.

Check out Pendraken's AWI and Boer War ranges – awesome variety. Also a vote for Peter Pig's AWI in 15mm!

Very broad question but I am using a combination of Perry Carlist Wars Royal Marines and Cape Wars British line, Empress Maori Wars Royal Navy, Copplestone and Foundry Darkest Africa, and Foundry Baluchis for an Sharp Practice campaign based on the Roayl Navy's anti-slavery actions in the Indian Ocean in the 1840s. They are all 28mm 19th century ranges that I really like.

Once that is done, I plan an Indian Mutiny project using Iron Duke.

Pendraken for me

Iron Duke Indian Mutiny range
Empress Zulu War range

Can you still buy those Black Watch Solferino sets?

WillieB Supporting Member of TMP30 Mar 2019 10:56 a.m. PST

Another vote for Iron Duke Indian Mutiny.
Followed by Indus Minuatures for earlier Indian conflicts but many usable for the IM.

Empress Maori Wars ( but I'm not doing them because I know next to nothing about those wars)

A company called Eagles of Empire ( I think) is doing a great Franco Prussian War range but is still incomplete and only slowly growing. Fantastic figures but not yet enough to 'bite' Tempted though and already bought some.

I suppose you can: link

I always wanted to use this range too, the Perry Intervention Force. Maybe I can poach a few packs to use for either Crimea or Mutiny?


You know, I notice that the admin moved this thread from also being cross posted to another 19th century thread. It's nice to see he is so engaged but some of that energy might go into reducing the number of fora and sub-fora because I fear it's keeping the participation too fractured.

Iron Duke Miniatures are $3 USD a piece? link

Now I know what part of the Duke is made of iron!
