More on Caesar Fantasy Miniatures
As you can see, I took to heart the fourth lesson from my last post. ;)
Anyway on the left is one of the skeletons from the Caesar Miniatures Undead package.
On the right is the skeleton from the D&D Basic Game (3.5 edition) from Wizards of the Coast. Now, this guy is crouching down (an artifact of the plastic they use, I think, or else he's just that way because he was smushed) or else you'd see that the Caesar fellow is about 2/3 the height.
In another, unphotographed, comparison, he's a bit taller than a Halfling Brawler, if you're familiar with that figure.
Now, the WOTC figs are somewhat taller than the old 25mm "standard". This scale creep is sometimes called 28mm, Heroic 25mm, or even 30mm.
My figures may be much smaller, but at least I can carry more of them for less weight and in a smaller box, to boot.
I didn't get around to doing any dipping last night. Tonight, I hope -- the stuff requires adequate ventilation, so I generally do it outdoors. We'll see.
