(Click on the image for a larger version)

Name:       Ratmen, Druids Children Rebels

Manufacturer:       Splinter Light Miniatures

Poses:       11 poses (more are available now, but at the time procured this was the entire line)

Figure material:       metal

Ability to Take Paint:


Pose Quality:       lots of different armor and weapons reflect equipment Ratmen might carry as well as different roles from leader to conscript

Sculpting:       excellent, lots of sharp detal

Mould Lines:       little to none

Figures Released:       2008

I purchased these figures from Splintered Light Miniatures when I attended Historicon. These figures are well made, had almost no flash, lots of detail for a 15mm/18mm miniatures, and the service from David at Splintered Light is excellent. These figures were not manufactured as 1/72 but as 15mm/18mm figures. It would have been awesome if they were one or two millimeters taller, but they look good on the table top. Overall I am very happy with them.

TheRat Ogre shown will get his own article, but he is a 28mm Ratman figure from Rodrick Campbell. I knew he would make the perfect Rat Ogre for my 1/72d Ratmen and he did not disappoint.

As usual, Friar Tuck (an Airfix Robin Hood set figure) and Conan (a Caesar Miniatures Adventures set figure) make their appearance for scale.

Thanks for reading...
