New Ancient Civilians available

As a painter and diorama-maker first (and gamer second) I am very interested in townsfolk models. My favorite historic period is ancient Rome. To make simple Roman and Celtic civilians I have been buying un-armored warriors and removing their weapons. Today I was happy to see the Foundry has a large new collection of ancient civilians.


The sculpting is excellent, and there is a nice range of detailed poses: nobles, farmers, townsfolk, vendors, etc. I think these might be Mark Copplestone sculpts (or maybe not, does anyone know?). Foundry models are woefully overpriced at six models for $23/£11. Despite the cost, these figs are so nice I am tempted to order a couple sets.

It's stuff like this that makes me (sometimes) wish that I used 28mm (rather thn 10mm).

You're in the US, correct?

You may want to look into Caliver Books for purchasing Foundry figures, especially in smaller quantities:

You pay in UK prices and the threshold for free worldwide shipping is fairly low.

Yes, I'm in the US. Wow, a loop-hole. Thanks for the Caliver tip. I can save almost $6 per set at the current exchange.
