I am expanding my interests and looking at ancients, medievals, and renaissance, DBA and DBM Quick play and DBR. I saw some ads for this line in a Google search and they looked really nice, a little pricey but worth it. Scale Creep also has the Baueda line in addition to the Essex. These also look really nice, Mark said that they were closer to 18s rather than 15s but compatible. I may wanna mix and match. I wanna get a variety of poses of both riders and horses. Does anyone have any experience with Khurasan or Baueda that could prove helpful?

Khurasan makes some beautiful minis, but you have to be careful. He uses at least two different sculptors, one is very good, the other not so much. Any of the ranges described as 18mm, are beautiful and will match Blue Moon and AB.

I personally consider Khurasan as a top notch manufacturer, and my favorite manufacturer in 15mm these days.

I've found some of the Khurasan figures really fine, but except for size, others were not so good. The Baueda German cavalry I bought was pretty rough. It painted up pretty well, but the sculpts were not that good.

Mark from ScaleCreep here.

Just a note. If you don't like the Baueda you can return them as long as they;re still int eh package….

cfielitz16 Apr 2023 9:01 p.m. PST

My opinion is that the infantry are not that noticeable in size to other manufacturers. Its the horses that seem really big.

I have purchased DBA3 army packs from Baueda.
Am pleased with the extra figures and camp material supplied with each.
The miniatures are a consistent size and mix well with Old Glory and Essex.

BTW, for ancient, medieval, and renaissance eras Old Glory is another option.
The Early Imperial Roman (all Old Glory) were posted yesterday;

if anyone is interested I have done a size comparison for about 20 different 15mm manufacturers

Yes we are!

For Khurasan Miniatures, I like those sculpted by Clibinarium the best. For renaissance, that would include the Ottoman Turk range, I believe. He also sculpted the Renaissance Irish, the Late 16th Century and Late 17th Century ranges. All these are 15mm ranges. They are a bit taller than Minifigs and Essex but are not as tall as other Khurasan ranges sculpted by other artists. I have some 15mm/ 18mm Marlburian figures, sculpted by Mike Broadbent. They are quite good, and like the Clibinarium figures, beautifully proportioned, but more 18mm than 15mm.


Cheers!

I have many Baueda figures and generally like them, really sweet Carolingians! The Lombards had random sculpt in the mix that weren't as good as the others, but overall nice.

Khurasan used to be 15s and sculpted to a consistent height, but now various additional sculptors have gone significantly scale creepy 18s, you have to vet each range carefully. If you look carefully at the photos and the figures look extra tall they are. Chinese are 15s, Mongols are 18s, WTH?!?

Khurasan makes some beautiful minis, but you have to be careful. He uses at least two different sculptors, one is very good, the other not so much. Any of the ranges described as 18mm, are beautiful and will match Blue Moon and AB.


nnascati, Where have you found any that are specified as 18s? I find it exceedingly frustrating that each historical range doesn't specify height (that I've been able to spot).

nnascati Supporting Member of TMP19 Apr 2023 4:04 p.m. PST

MiniMo, I recall that he mentioned his recent 14th century range as being 18mm, and I think other ranges as well. I think anything recent is 18mm.

Personal logo miniMo Supporting Member of TMP19 Apr 2023 4:56 p.m. PST

The trouble is not knowing off-hand which is 'recent'

Current solution is not to buy anything unless I can verify the height. And he didn't reply to an email when I asked about several specific ranges I had been looking at.

Puster Sponsoring Member of TMP20 Apr 2023 10:21 a.m. PST

I largely love the Khurasan minis, and recently bought a sample for my incoming Italian wars army. The gensdarmes, while excellent sculpts, will sadly not fit upon a typical 3*4 cm DBx-Base with three horses.

This is the only reason my French gensdarmes will not come from Khurasan :-(

Finally able to respond; all comments most helpful, thank you all for your input. My collection of Seven Years War, (Prussian, Austrian, French, and Allied, are largely FreiKorps with a couple old Minifigs tossed in. I had some Essex Poles back in the day and they seemed to be about the same size aside from being a couple centuries different so that size comparison provided by Riothamus was helpful even though FreiKorps wasn't included, I can extrapolate from my experience with Essex and Minifig. My only complaint with some of the other ranges is the lack variety in the poses of both foot and horse.

vonSchwartz0423 Apr 2023 7:09 p.m. PST

BTW, as long as we're here, does anyone know a good source of ancient and/or medieval artillery such as ballistas and mangonels, etc, in 15mm?

Gallocelt24 Apr 2023 8:41 p.m. PST

For 15mm, I believe Essex makes a Roman ballista. Hallmark makes a mangonel which can be purchased from Magister Militum:

Also a 15mm trebuchet is listed:

Hallmark Miniatures are on the smaller side of 15mm figures but nicely proportioned and detailed.


Cheers!

Donnington does a good range of artillery.
