These are miniature figures, which are popular to paint. Most are made from white metal, but some can be resin or even plastic. (They are primarily sold unpainted and unassembled)

What makes them so popular is that they cover a wide variety of subjects, from Wild West themes, to Scifi, to Fantasy, to Military.

They average in height at around 54mm (2.54 inches), which is the same as 1/32 scale.

For a few, assembly is required, usually an arm or accessory to the figure, and CA glue is needed.

Advanced Figures

Small miniature figures have been around for decades, even more than 100 years.

Originally known as "tin" soldiers, they were used in military gaming or as a tool for military leaders to depict strategies in war time.

Once soldiers retired, the small miniatures soldiers were used to depict battle scenes on large tables and diroamas.

In that sense, gaming with miniatures is an old and honored tradition.

These miniature figures today are still a large hobby, though these kinds are not specifically for gaming. Rather they are just a small form of modeling where artists like to develope their painting skills to depect a scene. Miniature dioramas if you will that tell a story, a small moment in time.

Today, the subjects vary wide, from real life to fantasy. You could be painting a Roman Legionaire one day, and a fantasy elf the next.

Some figures require a small amount of assembly, usually an accessory part, or an arm or leg. Most figure modelers place the model on a base, and add their own modeling touches to make a small diorama.

It's rare two of the same figures will look the same (except on some military figures where accuracy is more important), since they can be painted any way you want to.

These figures average in height at around 54mm (@ 2.54 inches), which is 1/32 scale - 1/35 scale. While that is small, the figures are very detailed. Plus, they don't take up much room. You can store a lot of these figures on display at one time.

These are traditionally painted with a brush. Though some modelers do use a spray can or an airbrush, to apply a primer coat prior to painting.

Since they are painted using a brush, they easily let a modeler enjoy a model building hobby with little fuss. If you live in an apartment or highrise, where using spray paint is not viable, or have limited living space, these are a good choice.

Make no mistake that these are a real hobby with modeling. Famous names like Shepherd Paine, Angel Giraldez, Marike Reimer, Jen Haley, and Anne Foerster all make / made a living painting miniature figures.
