Hello guys,

I am interested in purchasing some Venexia 15mm Philistines, but I don't know how they will compare size wise with my Chariot Philistines....I fear they will be too big against my smaller style Chariot figures. Anybody know how the Venexia figures compare in size with other ranges???

Thanks in advance

Nope. The Gladiator Philistines are very stout and muscular; the Chariots are very thin. It would look like a group of Arnold Schwarzeneggers against a group of Peewee Hermans.

Darn David! It looks like I will just have to use more Chariot minis. A shame. I was hoping to mix the figures for a more realistic army with multiple poses.

I am thinking of building a Hebrew army and was wondering how the 15mm Venexia compares with Essex, Minfigs, Chariot and Mirleton in terms of size and quality?

Also is there any assembly required with Venexia? I thought the Mirleton figures were excellent but the assembly of spears, shields and arms were a real pain.

Thanks,
Brian

I have carried all of these at one time or another. Chariot would be considered the smaller of the companies listed.
Essex average with Old Glory mixing with them in size and bulk.
Venexia is bulkier and would be larger than the others. I just had an ebay client in Italy send me some more for a DBA army. They also sent some Aqulifer which were also large and my painter said that the sculpting looked similar to Donnington.

The new 3rd edition Minifig are closer to Chariot than the old 2nd edition range.
