Plastic or resin Cavemen (and women)

Posted by Curefan on 11 Jan 2019, 10:50

Does anyone know of any 1/72 plastic cavemen and or cavewomen? I would like to stay away from metal if possible. Fighting poses would be great but others would work too!

Thanks

Personally I like Phersu miniatures. Some of the old Esci Barbarians also work.
Good luck. Douglas

I also think that Phersu is the best choice. And some of the old ESCI:s.

Saw these for sale on E-bay but the picture only shows a partial view of two figures. Ive got no idea what's in the set maybe our russian friends can help. Postage from Italy might be very expensive.

No! I don't know why the Cavemen are attacking a herbivorous dinosaur with carnivorous teeth either.

I looked at the Phersu figures at Germania Figiren, they look really good I might like some of those myself sometime. Here's an additional link showing some more of the figures:

And I did use two ESCI Barbarians (reissued by Italeri) to make a start on a caveman & cavewoman. They worked well with the axe and spearheads re-carved to look like flint.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I think the Phersu’s fit the bill perfectly. Awesome!

Sorry I missed out the link for the first set I mentioned, it's an out of production Russian set from Arcipelago:

But I do think the Phersu figures are a much better option.

Seems it is a copy of Revell's model. Revell had a serie of dinosaur models. I've bought it 15-20 years ago.
