Another memory is the Matchbox hunter and dog that came with a Studebaker station wagon:

Practice makes perfect. Here is the Eagle Wizard up against Caesar Elf woman, Alliance orc and Alliance elf followed on the far right by a Caesar elf.

So that Eagle wizard might work best with 28mm figures?

I see Paul took some of my suggestions for undead :-)
Skeleton is some big put it can work in my opinion. The evil wizard is too big, I also purchased him last year ...

Hello Carlos yes I also feel the wizard is too big. The skeletons can work but they are a bit expensive at $1.49 each plus shipping. But I don't have many options right now. Thanks for your help.

Blue falchion; unfortunatly that wizard seems to really not fit into anything. I have a Reaper dwarf which as tall as he is. He could be used for Old School 25mm collections, but the modern stuff would tower over him. Cool figure but I think he is too big for my stuff. Oh well.

The Dr Who edition of "Risk" has lots of daleks in 3 different sizes, I think one size would be OK for 1/72. Some of them are horrible looking new things but more than half are fairly decent looking proper Daleks.

Not cheap though I think the game retailed here for AU$99.

I really liked the gangster figure in the "Bootleggers" game when I saw it on the PSR page so the Eagle Games link is useful, thanks. The other things that caught my eye on the PSR page were the adventurers from "It From The Pit", I'll keep an eye out for those. The only similar thing I have are two Airfix hunters from the Tarzan set who are suffering from acute plastic rot.

There are some nice figures in "Defenders of the Realm" are all of the figures oversized for 1/72?
