Wow! Those are really nice navy figures -- I like them a lot.

Fantastic figures.

Is that a new company? I never heard of them before. If new, that is a very auspicious beginning.

Old company, also known as Fantassin, somehow now merged with Capitan Miniatures and/or Capitan Games.

More great work from Mr Broadbent.
Must get some for SHARP PRACTICE

Great figures. In the way that they're posed & presented, I'd swear they're a 19C version of the Village People.

You can almost hear 'in the Navy' as the background music when you look at the dancing matelots.

Fonzie06 Jan 2013 3:51 a.m. PST

Gangdam style….

Serious, great figures, well done !

The Gray Ghost06 Jan 2013 4:55 a.m. PST

I need all those Lieutenants and the Spanish are very tempting

"Fantastic figures", "auspicious beginning", "great work", "Great figures"
You're all being ironic, yes?

Unfortunately, some of their informational pages are password-protected!

Nice figures!
They seem a bit small in the chest though.
And obviously one would need a ship for all them climbing/ working sailors. Hmm, how to explain this to the Missus now???

I like these and will buy them. The painting is excellent and the concept well-done. Since these will be used in small skirmish actions, more variety in the poses from the waist down will be welcome and I look forward to more releases. Great work!

How do these figures match up with Victrix? Now that I have one of Laser Dream Works fantastic 28mm ships, I need good crew.

ottenfeld06 Jan 2013 6:33 a.m. PST

This is good stuff. Finally some 28 MM Spanish sailors. Next is hopefully some marine infantry in 'on board' dress. Also, rowers and climbing sailors are not easy to find. I was just looking at those tasty ships made Laser Dream Works – I detect an evil plot here.

I detect a few "The Gun" scenarios in the future.

If you have seen TMP some weeks ago we have announced that Capitan Miniatures & Warmodelling has merged in WARMODELLING MINIATURES. Now we are working in our new online shop but you have them in our online shop ( but briefly will be available in USA via Scale Creep.
And yes we are working togheder whit Laser Dream Works to complete the range of ships, and in a few months we will release a new set of Boarding Action rules.
About the web of Capitan Games is now the department of rule desing and gamed developement of WARMODELLING MINIATURES and in short time we will publish our games.
Now we are working in the design of boarding parties, and more.
And yes the miniatures are fully compatible in scale with Vitrix & Perrys.
Thanks for your kind comments, this help us to keep going on and investing in our bussines!!!!!

They look great. Excellent job.

daghan Inactive Member06 Jan 2013 11:20 a.m. PST

They seem to suffer from the Kaiser's withered left arm syndrome?

Personal logo Extra Crispy Sponsoring Member of TMP06 Jan 2013 11:23 a.m. PST

I think it's the angle in the photo. The hand rests on the sword hilt so the arm extends back behind the figure.

I have been waiting for the 28mm version of these are excellent figures. I will order soon. Hopefully, 28mm gunboats etc. will follow.

Personal logo John the OFM Supporting Member of TMP06 Jan 2013 3:49 p.m. PST

I see that all the captains have made post.
Any with just one epaulette?

You're all being ironic, yes?

Nope, I like them. grin

Wulfgar Supporting Member of TMP06 Jan 2013 7:00 p.m. PST

Gorgeous figures. I am unaware of anything else that is equal to them in the quality of the sculpts or in the variety being offered or planned. Thank you!

Skeptic06 Jan 2013 8:04 p.m. PST

That was the "Capitan Games" pages, by the way.

Valator06 Jan 2013 9:53 p.m. PST

They look great, but they also seem to be doing the Gagnam Style dance, which is a bit disturbing.

Some of these are quite nice but some are very odd. In particular the Spanish officers, if you removed their enormous collars would have necks like giraffes. Nicely painted though.

Liberators07 Jan 2013 8:24 a.m. PST

Great job in continuing, expanding and filling the Napoleonic naval niche. Just as exciting is Capitan's promise of full rules and game system development.

Flat Beer and Cold Pizza Inactive Member07 Jan 2013 3:46 p.m. PST

These are great. Gets me hankering for a few games of "Privateers and Gentlemen."

AuvergneWargamer08 Jan 2013 7:26 a.m. PST

Mes Amis,

I've painted some Capitan miniatures Brunswick Owls and am happy with them despite some long necks there too!

But seamen need ships and mention has been made of "Laser Dream Works" vessels.

These look tempting but does anyone know of a review or a step-by-step guide to making them and rigging them etc?

Also, does anyone have an idea of how they comapre with Britannia's frigates?

Very grateful for replies.


Just noticed an excellent review of one of the Laser Dream vessels on TMP at:
