Ronin – useful links

I’ve been trawling the web for miniatures, scenery and the like, so here’s a little list of links where some of the best can be found. They’re all for 28mm size miniatures, by the way – which gives for a great game and looks terrific:

Miniatures:
Northstar: lovely Steve Saleh sculpts, with a good mix of miniatures in each buntai. Mythological, Korean and Ming buntai in the pipeline, it seems. http://www.northstarfigures.com/list.php?man=152&page=1
Alan Perry’s samurai: ’nuff said. http://www.perry-miniatures.com/index.php?cPath=23_38
Kingsford Miniatures: growing range of pewter minis recently on show in WSS67 (which also contained a good run-down of available figures). http://www.kingsfordminiatures.org/
Steel Fist Miniatures: currently redesigning their samurai range after pulling back from a Kickstarter; also do 15th C European knights. http://www.steelfistminiatures.com/index.html
Wargames Factory: plastic samurai, ashigaru and mounted samurai – cheap, versatile, and a world away from some of their other historical sculpts. http://www.wargamesfactory.com/webstore/rising-sun/samurai-warriors
Kensai (Zenit Miniatures): Japanese in all but name, with some really nice mythological creatures too! http://kensei.zenitminiatures.es/index.php/en/

Dixon Miniatures: nominally 25mm, but slightly larger in reality. Wide range. http://www.dixon-minis.com/shop/samurai-25mm/

Old Glory UK “Samurai Katana”. Great range, including “The Seven Samurai”. These are 28mm. http://www.oldgloryuk.com/disp_items.php?m=2&s=58

Old Glory US “Samurai Wars”. Listed in the Fantasy section, these are 25mm. http://www.oldgloryminiatures.com/products.asp?cat=53
Wargames Foundry: originally Citadel “Oriental Heroes”, from 1984. http://www.wargamesfoundry.com/our-ranges/samurai
