Can anyone recommend 20-25mm figures for Brunswick hussars and uhlans? (Most of my other stuff is about 23-24mm in scale, so 24mm+/-1 would be ideal.)
I see the HaT Brunswick cav is no longer being produced :-(
Happy to invest in white metal if that is available. Also don’t mind minor conversion jobs, e.g. from Prussians or Austrians perhaps?

They are Hinchcliffe so older figures and I recall them being quite small compared to more 'modern' 28s. The Hussars I recall being quite slender, the Uhlans less so. There are piccies!

Hope this helps,

Rather smaller would be Newline Design's 20mm Brunswickers. Seems like a fairly complete range, but few pictures.

Thanks for the ideas. I have a few Hinchcliffe 25/28s but they tower over my Airfix and even Minifigs models. That is not such a problem for the “Big Men” but they don’t sit well in the ranks.

As for Newline, I believe they are genuine 20mm, and so look small alongside my other minis.

Thanks @rim66 for the links! Alas, Michigan is in a different continent and the postage & import charges will cost more than the figs. If they're HaT reissues maybe they'll appear in European stores again before long...

I'm looking again at the Newline figs, which do indeed look fine. One reviewer suggests they are compatible with Airfix plastics, which would suit me well as most of my troops are 30-yr old Airfix.
