Knowledge Base and FAQs

Answers to some common questions…

We are an Internet based, 28mm sized, white-metal, historical wargames, miniature manufacturer & mail-order specialist retailer.

Well, in general they are 28mm ‘sized’. 28mm is not a true representation of ‘scale’ some proportions are tweaked to give representations that are pleasing on the eye, not necessarily to ‘scale’, but the closest scale we give as compatible with TAG minis 1/56th.

TAG miniatures are made from a white-metal alloy that contains Lead, which may be harmful if ingested.

Please take care to ensure that white-metal does not get into your mouth, avoid eating, drinking and smoking whist handling unpainted miniatures, and always wash your hands after.

For more information on working with white metal, this document is very informative, Lead & You, its primarily aimed at British Industry, but does contain all the relevant health information.

All packs are given the weapons and equipment, parts and shields, necessary to make up the total number of models listed as the pack content on the cart, normally four for infantry packs or 3 for mounted packs.

The exception to this is than we do not provide pikes, half-pike or standard poles, these would be ugly and impractical in white metal, and we recommend steel wire for these.

The Fantasy miniatures, which all are shown with slotted base tabs, do NOT come with plastic bases. (due to supply issues)

We do have a metal lozenge shape alternative for sale.

All the others have integral metal bases.
