Figures

Scale figures are often vital components for adding life to military builds, dioramas or vignettes, but also make interesting standalone subjects. The sheer number of figures on the market, in different scales, is staggering, with a wealth of different genres being available. These range from military and aircrew, to sci-fi, civilians, fantasy and historical to ancients and even the Wild West. The usual mediums are styrene, resin and white metal.

Various kit firms also make their own styrene figures, Tamiya, MiniArt, Masterbox to name just three, but the number of companies producing figures in other mediums is high. Examples include Alpine, Pegaso, Scale 75, Royal Model and Stormtroopers, but there are many, many more...
