Eastern Roman Archers by Warlord Games (28mm)

As I've blogged before, Librairie Donjon, a gaming shop in Montreal, brought in a number of packages of miniatures by Warlord Games. I thought it a fine opportunity to check out the quality of the figures. My army already contained two units of Eastern Aux Archers (figures by Old Glory) but I was impressed by the quality of the Warlord Games' Western Roman Archer Figures so I purchased a box of 16 Eastern Imperial Archers. As in those figures you receive four different poses and the figures are very easy to paint.

I picked up another two packs four man packs on Ebay and sold one of my 16 man Old Glory Eastern Archer. The Old Glory Figures are chunkier, and come in one static pose.

  1. Hello, Are Warlord romans compatible with old glory miniatures?

  2. Hi Álvaro, I guess it is a question of one's personal taste. As I wrote I found the OG castings to be chunkier, and more static. I don't like to mix them together with the WG figures but I'll run them as separate units. The same for the colonial period. I find the OG miniatures just overwhelm the Ral Partha ones in my collection, but both are down as 25mm. I use them in separate units. Comparing the face size of the OG vs the WG figures I'd say the surface area of the face looks to be almost 50% larger. I hope this helps.

  3. Thank you Robert, It helps me a lot.I was looking for a compatible generals or comands to my warlord early imperial army army, and I have the two of warlord games yet. Thank you, and sorry my bad english!!!
