Only recently discovered these lovely little castings in 3mm scale! Painted up 4 DBA armies and now I'm hooked on them :) I like the mass effect with 48 figures per base for blades and spears. Spartans next up! Great thing is you can do an entire army in about a week.

Wow, they look great!

They do look great! I find it hard to believe how people can put such detail into such small figs. Every time I see figs like these I want to get some DBA armies.

Looking mighty fine Lee.

They are wonderful and I am always in awe of people who can paint something so small with so much detail.

Well done!

Superb. I am a 6/10mm gamer but these are quite convincing should I try another period.

Martin Rapier24 Feb 2023 11:30 p.m. PST

Very nice indeed.

Wonderful work.
It makes DBA look like a full battle.
Do show us your scenery and DBA board when you can.

Wonderful figures and superb paint job.
Who makes these miniatures, are they Magister Militum? Not a lot of 3mm miniature makers out there compared to 6 or larger.

3mm don't actually need a 'detailed' paint job to look good. It does need a fairly careful paint job to emphasize the salient parts of the figures so that, when taken as a unit, it looks right and the viewer's brain fills in the details.

I'm doing WSS in 3mm at the moment and wishing I could stop myself adding details that don't show but are quite clear on the figures. Once you get the hang of them you can indeed produce units very quickly.

Oddzial Ozmy is the likely producer, from Poland. I have Napoleonics. They are available from Pico Armor in the US. Quite amazing castings.I also bogged down a bit in painting details, having painted thousands of 6 mm H&R minis, but only because the castings are so paintable for the size. But it goes fairly fast, and while prices just went up a bit, they are still very affordable.

3mm? Might as well be cardboard counters! LOL

These stands really look like large units. Easy to tell the different troop types appart too.

These would stand well against 15mm! As your first picture shows!
