Are the 1s on the scale chart your historical scale minis, including plastic Byzantine spearmen? So, these will be historically scaled rather than scaled to match your new fantasy line?

All our new products will be in the same scale of Forgotten World. The height is the same between older and new models, 28mm from feet to eyes, but arms/body proportions are different

Pledged, immediately. I absolutely love my Forgotten World minis. They painted up beautifully.

You'll probably catch a lot of gak for the change from historicals folks, but having bought some of your excellent Forgotten World zombies and peasants personally I'm very pleased to hear this.

I only wish I had a use for Byzantines so I could show my support with actual cash. Hopefully this campaign is a success for you and you can go on to produce many more ranges(Landsknechts, Imperial Chinese, Crusaders & other knights, or Conquistadors would be most welcome).

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Just to clarify, will these new historical be as "thick" as the Forgotten world miniatures, or will they be more in line with your previous historical miniatures?

When you say "the same scale", do you mean the same height or in the same proportions?

I am by no means an historical enthusiast (don't get me wrong, I like historical games, but there's only so many hours in the day), but these might get backed.

I love Byzantine history - especially Bellisarius's invasions of north Africa and Italy and the battles with the Sassanid Empire, and the Deme Riots, and... Yeah, OK, I just love Justinian. I could so see these getting some table time in historical or pseudohistorical skirmishing...

So the new byzantine miniatures will be a different scale compared to the old byzantine miniatures? That's unfortunate.

as you can see from the comparative photo, the old miniatures will not be bad with the models in the new scale at all

Does anyone have a scale shot of these next to Fireforge’s Russsians and Mongols? I’d like to see how comparable the kits are for...uhm...reasons.
