Hello everyone ,

In 25/28/30/32 mm which offers mailed infantry and cavalry fantasy barbarian figures if possible with horned or / and winged helmets?

Thank you in advance.

Kit bash the Frostgrave kits.. if you are into plastics.

I believe the Old Glory 25mm Ghost range barbarians are fantasy type vikings with horned helmets (there might be some wings in there, too).

x42brown14 May 2019 6:10 a.m. PST Do helmet-wings link in their accessories/converting range if you're willing to do a bit of work.

Thank you all,

It's true that Old Glory sells this stuff and the hit of the helmet wings of hasslefree is a good find, but I have not seen any mailed barbarian in the Frostgrave kits also continuing to search for the appropriate figures.

You might try West Wind's "Nordvolk" range. At least some of the command packs have armour and horned helmets: link

Also, this list of "alternative Vikings" might help [there are several pages]: link

Yes thank you colgar6, but the West Wind's "Nordvolk" range do not do enough fantasy.

By the way, what has become of the 28 mm "barbarians" range of Black Tree Design?

Some possibilities:-
Mirliton link
Scotia_grendel link
Alternative Armies
Reaper link
Bronze Age

Thank you Huscarle, but there is nothing really mailed in it (or it's too expensive for mass armies)?

By the way, what has become of the ld 28 mm "barbarians" range of Black Tree Design?

The West Wind Nordfolk figures are larger 28mm and therefore compatible with any larger GW figures. I bought some to supplement my Chaos Marauders.

YogiBearMinis , the West Wind's "Nordvolk" range do not do enough fantasy…

I want 25/28/30 / 32mm mailed foot and mounted fantasy barbarian figures …

And for those of Old Glory who might be, what I'm looking for, no pictures!

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP14 May 2019 12:23 p.m. PST

This afternoon, problems of connections?

Tonight I saw the old glory photo, there is as I want but they are a tiny minority, so it's impossible … No other ideas ?

Looking at the Scotia-Grendel Barbarians and they sure look like the old Black Tree figures to me.

Looks like they might also be carrying figs that formerly were Black Tree's licensed Lord of the Rings minis…

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP14 May 2019 10:50 p.m. PST

Thank you brave face, but the Scotia-Grendel Barbarians, I saw them yesterday, it does not work and I do not remember old Black Tree figures in this way.

As for the Lord of the Rings minis, it's not enough fantasy …
As soon as there are mailed figurines, they look like Vikings, that's not what I want …

Nobody did not make barbarians in chainmail?

fantasque15 May 2019 1:22 a.m. PST

Lots of help. None good enough

paul liddle15 May 2019 9:13 a.m. PST

It's a hard life.

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP15 May 2019 11:12 a.m. PST

Yeah it's amazing, When there are, they are too vikings, not enough fantasy …

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP19 May 2019 11:27 a.m. PST

It's amazing, Scotia Grendel offers everything I was looking for in its "Metal Figures" range!
