We want to provide gamers with more choice. We have designed our lines to include unusual or hard to find types in addition to the standard types.
…are made with the highest quality metal alloy, designed to be hard but not brittle and to hold an incredible amount of detail. They require minimal cleanup: just prime and paint! They do contain lead and so are not suitable for children under 14 years old.
A tremendous amount of research goes into every Askari miniature. They are guaranteed to be not only detailed but also scrupulously accurate. In general, we portray our figures in campaign dress. Variations are noted in the catalog and with the pictures provided you should be able to see exactly what you’re getting. If you are still not sure, sample packs are available.
