So I know about the Romeo and Juliet (1968) italian swordsmen from Eureka. According to the Wikipedia page on the film, it takes place in the "late 14th century." I'm really interested in playing a "Gangs of Verona" type game. Could someone direct me to some good 28mm miniatures other than the Eureka ones for this purpose? Thanks in advance.

Based on the clothing styles and weapon types I'd say its more like the late 15th century.

Years ago, I did this for 3 or 4 convention games & I also did a "Romeo & Juliet & Zombies" scenario 2 or 3 times. I took the course of finding figures that match the Zefferelli film rather than the historical period. I amassed suitable Foundry, Citadel & Mordheim minis, metal & plastic, but some of these are now OOP.
Since I've collected & built the TTCombat "Streets of Venice" models, I hope to start running these games again when wargame cons are resumed.

Really? The Foundry models are OOP?
