As always during this time of year, I think of the Nutcracker soldiers v. the rats from the story.

Anyone discovered toys that would cover this at around 54mm size? 2-3" basically?

I'm wondering what the world of painted plastics has going on these days. Surely someone must be making sets on this theme!

Check out Skull & Crown

One of the guys in our game group has been acquiring nutcrackers, giant rats and other things and we play an annual game using WRG rules. He gets the nutcrackers dollar stores. They are about 4 or 6 inches tall.

Stalkey and Co, perhaps run the game with 28mm Napoleon era soldiers with GW Skaven as their enemy. The Perry Brothers make a wide variety of Nappy soldiers, and I bet someone is selling an old Skaven army on eBay.

Skull and crown are neat, but still require paint and frankly, they're awfully pricy. if they were more like a buck for a wooden shape that you would glue a color paper soldier to, that'd be more my speed.

It may have to be something crafty I just do myself, Junior General style.

Perhaps Wargame Vault has some paper soldiers and rats that could be worked with?

Does anyone know more about the Batalov and Batalov paper figures? They look very nice, but there is precious little about them at Amazon:

He posts often on the Paper soldiers facebook group.

There was a guy from Battlegroup Boston(I believe) who did this some years ago. He used Eureka Toy Town soldiers and cat toys. The battlefield was a realistic 18th century attic corner, with all the bits and bobs one would expect. Sadly, I had my own game to run in that time slot and couldn't play.
