anyone got any favourite nubian archer figs in 15mm??
I have seen the Essex and I am not too keen.
best regards and happy Christmas

Gladiator Games produce some excellent 15mm Nubians, as part of their biblical range. They're fairly chunky but very detailed and realistically posed. I think there are 2 or 3 different archers in the range and they were sculpted by the very talented Josef Ocherman. May be worth you having a look.

Old Glory 15mm has a number of poses in their range. Three I like (running and the reaching for an arrow are good) and one I do not like(release position). The command are really nice as well.

OG figs will cost me about fifty dollars inc postage and I'll end up with 100 more figures than I actually need.
Plus I couldn't stand an OG bow army - not with those plank bows.
The gladiator ones look nice - I will probably mix these with esex and a pack of minifigs to create a rag tag army.

against all those chariots my bows will lay waste to all comers!
Plus a couple of handy warband to charge in.
I feel that victory is mine already.
I found out minifigs don't do nubians

Being in the USA our bags are in 50 figure counts so if you have 100 archers left then you bought too bags or is there a lot left from each bag type? Being in the UK, how does UK Old Gory 15mm package ? Are they still 50 count or are they in the standard UK 8 count?
Left overs (castings) are not a big deal here. My customers know that I package left over castings from my custom Old Glory DBA armies into small packs of 8 count bags. I used to sell them individually but that was a hassle to inventory and carry to shows.

they only do 25mm
from the us the archers are 50 in a bag, the infantry have 50 and the command 36.
i need 54 figs for an all options nubian army. I only really want the bows and twp Ps - not the other seven Ps elements - so 34 figs in all.
meaning i have to buy 102 spare figs.
i'm trying the gladiator figs

Battle Honours UK have Old Glory 15's in their web site (see the Fanaticus Bazaar for the address). You still would need 102 spare figures though!

NickH is right. BattleHonors UK would have them. In the US, Old Glory 15mm (all of their 15mm except WW2) is made and owned by Battle Honors USA which also owns Black Raven 15mm Fantasy, Rank and File which makes = 15mm Medeival & Mid 1800s, makes and distributes Gripping Beast 25mm in the USA, and Quality Cast 15mm WW2 and Moderns. It makes my bills from them very large.
Sorry for the assumption.
