The figures are 28mm tall from sole of foot to eye when standing completely upright, though some figures will measure less than this if in a stooping pose. The heft of the figures are more proportionate to their height compared with some other styles of 28mm figures and are therefore slim in comparison. I have, however, made some compromises, in that inevitably some weapons have to be made slightly overscale, to ensure they are generally robust for general game play. The figures are also designed to fit comfortably onto bases 20mm in depth without overlap, and therefore, where required, 4 figures can fit in a line on a 60 x 20mm base. The figures are cast in a superior quality alloy with a high tin content, (Pewter) and all weapons and shields are attached for the most part, though some shields will be separate if attachment would cause casting issues. This does save considerable time in preparation of the figure for painting and hence there will be no complaints about weapons and shields falling off in the 'heat of battle'. However, it is easy to cut off a weapon from a hand, drill a hole in the closed fist and either add a wire javelin, spear or other weapon if so desired. This may also increase the strength of the figure and whilst I consider the figures are strong and robust because of the metal used, (and which is increased further by painting them), spears and javelins naturally have an inherent weakness at this scale. Consideration has been given to the possibility of adding wire weapons and converting a figure.
