Hello all:

I am asking for recommendations for heroic or larger scale figures that would be about 30mm foot to eye. I am hoping to find figures that could blend with the huge and chunky figures that were sold for Pinnacle's "Great Rail Wars".

Infantry would be nice but also civilians, cavalry, Indians the whole nine yards to avoid just ditching my existing figures and the stuff I just impulse bought to fill out my forces.

I do realize it might have been smarter to just bin everything and start with real 28s, but I am just not that smart. :)

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Check out Black Scorpion minis. They are around 29mm foot to eye. Nicely detailed models, full of character.

Reaper's Western figures are relatively tall compared to some other brands--definitely 30mm from boot sole to eye level, but they are slender rather than chunky in build & the range isn't extensive.

I think Knuckleduster's newer figs are on the big side.
