See:

What size are the Miniatures?

A few questions before buying

I'm in the 18-20mm scale camp.

Board Game: BattleLore
Human Battlelore archer compared to a 1/72 skel and orc

It was debatable, but alot of the 18mm/20mm stuff works well with it.
The style is more cartoony than any other miniature line though, so it doesn't always work despite scale.

The Bob Olley sculpts from Splintered Light Miniatures work really well (dwarfs and goblins especially).

Cheers,
Ben.

Hello My Eye / Earache,
Do you know the brand of the minis shown in the photos you've shared?
Thank you,

They're all from the Caesar Miniatures:

F101 Dwarves
F102 Elves
F103 Undead
F104 Adventurers
F105 Goblins
F106 Orcs Warriors
F107 Lizardmen
F108 Ratmen
F109 Orc Warriors (Set 2)


The Ratmen and Lizardmen are fairly new. They've rekindled my interest in this long-dormant project.

I've got the Elves and the Undead, and had a few ideas about Race rules, but I'd be keen to see any you have that relate to these 2 sets.

These Pig-faced Orcs have caught my eye.
I like the old-school nostalgia vibe.

I'm not familiar with the scale of those figures, but i know they aren't bulky like the original figures.

From gallery of Boromir_and_Kermit


Here's some of the figures I've used from them. They scale well and they are really beautiful for their size.

You've painted the frog men and ferrets very well. I'm impressed.

I got some minis in the mail and wanted to share.
From gallery of CliffordHolm


First Skeleton Bowmen from Splintered Light minis.
The one pose with the helmet looks perfect the other looks like the little kid brother tagging along.

The skeleton swordmen look good.

It seems like the scale matches for the pig-face Orcs too.

These Elf Archers from Eureka Miniatures USA seem too big.
If I use them I might have to skip the base. The left side Elf that doesn't have a base is the same height as the human.

I would say that Elves are normally also taller than humans.

Hey everyone,

i want to add some more historical units to the base game, but i'm not sure which scale. Footsoldiers in 1/72 work maybe as Orcs, but not as Humans. So 15mm it is.

Which scale fits best with the Cavalry? Also 15mm? Did anyone use historical custom knights with the game, could someone post a picture maybe? Would be nice.

I've done historical knights. I used Zevezda models both French and English. They are 72mm and a little too large for scale but I used them as "leader" units in my Dice Tower Convention games.

There is Lord Percy from the battle of Towton.
