I review a lot of fantasy gaming miniatures, and point out that there are some things about them that wouldn’t work even in a fantasy world.

I make no criticism of the quality of the sculpting, which is mostly very high. Instead, I criticise (and sometimes praise) the design.

I was amused to see that on the Reaper Miniatures web-site the figures are described as "25mm Heroic Scale Fantasy Miniatures" which seems to me to be a contradiction. If these figures are ’25mm’ they must measure from the chin to the knee.
