Looking for generic super hero figures for an RPG game I am writing.

Old GLory has some. Who else?

I might convert some generic heroclix figures…for .50 a pop you can't beat that….

Also generic scenery…street stuff etc. ideas?

I doubt you'll find a better deal than the Heroclix minis.

The Old Glory ones are nice. I also have some of these which are nice as well:

There are all 28mm+

The Bridge Miniatures figures were formally Black Hat.

Lance and Laser had some which I think are closer to true 25s.

Reaper has some in their Chronoscope line.

Use Heroclix. Super cheap and they make nearly everything. Most superheroes wear a cape, or don't, they wear a mask, or they don't, they wear tights, or they don't, they are male or female. With those six choices you got nearly every body type for a human superhero. After a few head swaps or cape swaps, you then do a paint conversion for nearly any superhero you want.

While Hero clix are cheap and easily available you are still converting Marvel and DC characters.

The Superfigs from Old Glory are excellent and will work with Crossover and Reaper figures.

Here are a few samples:

As for scenery and street bits, can't go wrong with O scale railroad and die cast cars. I built a whole city!

That stuff is awesome!

I always though O scale would be too big for 28mm figures….

KimRYoung Supporting Member of TMP19 Feb 2020 7:06 a.m. PST

The Superfigs are closer to 33mm and most of the others are on the "large" size as well. It's not really noticeable.

Most sci-fi, fantasy and superhero miniatures now days go 1.25 to 1.5 inches with bases, putting them in the 32 to 38mm range which is pretty close to most O scale scenery.

The buildings I made myself and I scaled them at 30mm.

Good to know.

I'm a little salty that the Marvel Crisis stuff is larger than other figures. Seriously….game companies could make so much more money if they made everything compatible.

GW lost tons of sales by having to make their LOTR stuff 25mm.
