Considering an Aztec army and was wondering who makes the best miniatures for the Aztecs?

Gladiator, in my opinion.

I like Falcon's, too...and the fact that they also make Mayan and Incan ranges is a selling point. That way, if you decide to field multiple Central or South American armies, the fig sizes will match up well.
I just bought Naismith's 15mm Mayans...they look okay -- not bad. Price was good, and I figure I'll also pick up a Falcon one from Quartermaster at Cold Wars. Then, if they mix well, I'll have lots of nice variety...

Compatibility is always in the eye of the beholder, but I think it's safe to say they will not mix well. Naismith are slender, dare I say, "true" 15s. Falcon tend towards the beefier side of 18mm scale.

I agree with David Gladiator all the way! the detail is unrivaled in 15mm except for maybe Corvus Belli but they dont do aztecs !!! gladiator offers packs fo 10 but they have an awesome deal where you can order any 20 packs for 33 Bp so its like less than a hundred dollars and you can get three or four armies out of this deal. Me and Don Ray order form them al the time and they have an awesome mail order service. delivery to N.A in like 10 days not to bad
I have some pics of gladiator aztecs that i painted in the eye candy section of the DBA resource page nder the gallery for Don Ray, who is a long time painting customer and wargaming addiction enabler LOL! let me know what you think of them!
