"I recently bought a set of bootleg Caesar figures that had been brought to my attention by a reader a while back. I had seen the likes of them on eBay and Amazon before, but never placed an order because I had the nagging feeling that they would be bigger than 1/72 scale…"

Thanks for the review. I've seen these advertised on Amazon but it's hard to tell what they're like. I think you've filled in all I need to know about them. Post again if you ever get any of them painted.

Nice figures. I assume they are less than $1 USD per figure?

Caesar makes some excellent fantasy figures, all listed as 1/72 scale, of course. I bought several Caesar sets before they went OOP. I like them, a lot. I painted up a few boxes of their Dwarves: group 1, group 2.

I primed them using automotive gray spray primer. Then I painted them using craft paints, followed by Minwax Polyshades Royal Walnut urethane stain, brushed on. Fast and easy. At arm's length, on the tabletop, they look great.

If I had a need for more Humans, I would pick these up. Unfortunately, I have loads of Human figures for my fantasy war games already! Thanks for sharing, Armand. Cheers!

I think that these would be good to give your preteen kids & get them interested in the medieval era & hopefully gaming with them.
