Hey guys, I'm working on a miniatures warfare game in a medieval setting. However, I'm having a lot of trouble finding cheap miniatures to use for a prototype. I need three types of units (Footmen, Archers, Knights), in 4 different colours (one for each player). Does anyone know where I can get some? I probably need ~30 miniatures per player.

You might look into resin.

You might look into resin. But you also should consider scaling down the figures. That might help.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm not actually looking to have custom pieces manufactured (yet)...just wondering if anyone's seen some sort of bulk stock miniatures. Like RISK-sized in large-ish quantities.

Alternative

http://www.boardgameextras.co.uk/ came to mind when I read your post - I've not looked in detail but they have a very wide selection.

If you can get away with simpler alternatives, you can buy wooden shapes (cubes, discs and cones) en masse in their accessories section?

If you don't mind putting

If you don't mind putting them together,(or painting them) you can look at WARLORD GAMES brand of plastic miniatures.

I think perry miniatures and warlord are working together.

30 bucks will get you a LOT of models and a BIG variation. I don't think you can get better than this kind of quality for so little money. This will make your prototype POP.
