Hello everyone,

Which old factory proposed Camillan or Polybian Roman 25 mm figures compatible in size with the Naismisth Design 25mm figures?

Thank you.

Hi Paskal. I've noticed you often use the word 'proposes' or 'proposed' in your enquiries. I believe the word you might be looking for is 'produced'?

Propose means to suggest something that may not happen. So people reading your question may think you are asking about something that was planned but never actually existed!

Produce means to make something, of course.

Hope you find this helpful, mate….

Try Ral Partha or Rafm.

@ Cerdic:

Yes if you want, but fortunately there are some that even understand me, but let's go,I put my question,so which in the past produced a Camillan or Polybian Roman 25 mm figures compatible with the Naismisth Design 25mm figures?Thank you.

@ gavandjosh02:

Thank you,but RAFM does not have Camillan or Polybian Roman 25 mm figures ranges.

1st Corps Republic Romans are smaller 25's and probably mostly compatible with Naismiths. Gripping Beast's Republic Romans are smaller than today's 28mm figures but may be close enough. Navigator (Magister Militum) are true 25's and much closer to Naismiths. You can also add in Essex, although I'm not sure if these are taller, they are more likely thicker. Old Foundry are thinner so they may be compatible.

@ JJartist :

Congratulations and thank you now it remains for me to find other Naismith Design 25 mm to complete my armies.

Paskal – apologies. you are right. All that Rafm have are some troops that you could use as historical allies such as Numidian Cavalry and perhaps those from Pergamon and Greece (such as the Achaean League).

@ gavandjosh02:

And especially the Odrysian, but what really matters to me the most important is their size compared to the size of the Naismith Design 25 mm figures and here I think it works.
