I only discovered these guys by chance, however I now consider them the best 28mm ancients available on the market. These figures mix extremely well with Crusader and A&A Miniatures. The sculpts are crisp with very little flash, subsequnetly they are an absolute pleasure to paint. Furthermore, they are rather nice guys to deal with!!! BUY WITH CONFIDENCE - you will not regret it.

This is a review of Aventine miniatures in general. I have purchased a number of their miniatures over this last year, and, I haven't been disappointed with any of my purchased! I purchased infantry & cavalry figures.....But, not the Sassinid elephants (not yet, I mean). I have found, without any exceptions, that the figures are historically accurate, the anatomy beautifully sculpted, the poses very lifelike, & the armor exquisite!! These are the kind of figures of which I could only dream about when I started gaming "Ancients" in 1973!!! My wallet continues to scream "Buy more"!!! "Buy some more"!! But, my brain screams "Stop"!!! "Stop"!!! "Put on the brakes"!!! So, I've got to paint some figures, before buying more. But, buy I wil!!! Aventine Miniatures, has, without exception, the best figures in the Market! If you want quality beyond comparison, try-out Aventine Miniatures!! Moshe
Just received my first batch of Aventine figures - in my case Volscian infantry and Etruscans as Allied Legionnaires. I would agree with the review by Michael Maly. These are beautifully sculpted, historical figures and a delight to paint. The level of detail is excellent and none of the figures had any flash on them. The order was shipped very quickly - no waiting in anticipation for the figures - and customised to my particular request for slides etc. The quality of the figures and speed of service merit the full 5 stars. I had thought of them as finishing off my Republican Army but now the promised arrival of Pyrrhic troops mean I am bound to buy more!
Great models and a very friendly business - would that more figure makers were so approachable. Very taken by their Romans too.
custom order Asked the gentlemen here to do me a custom cavalry order, quick accurate and excellent. Looking forward to painting them!
