Am looking at possibly getting some minis for use in playing old Avalon Hill game Circus Maximus.

Think 15, 20, or 25/28mm size but dont know where to look online.

What do folks suggest for this please?

My choice- cost effective enough so you can have wrecks as well.

Racing chariots were not to the same design as war chariots (and, we assume for lightness) did not really have bodies (the driver, in effect, stood on the rear axle with just a hoop in front of him)… you really want something like a 2 part model where you then don't add the body.

Drivers wore the same padded leggings as gladiators and had the reins tied around their waists (with a small knife so they could cut themselves free if they ended up on the track being dragged by an out of control chariot.

The Airfix Roman chariot in 20mm has 4horses and a very small body, but small wheels.
