I just received a box of Fireforge infantry aimed at the “Deus Vult” wargame. They are 28mm scale plastic “foot sloggers” in various light armour and headgear made by Renedra in the UK.  They come 48 to a box (6 sprues of 8) with plenty of shields, spears, hand weapons and crossbows.

I am looking to use some of them for “Saga” e.g. padded armour and Norman style helmets for crossbow Warriors. The box RRP’s in the UK at £28 – more expensive than other companies, but with more figures. You can shop around and save a few pennies on eBay.

Here are a few pictures from the sprue. The castings are nice and clean and should come off the sprue without too many problems with clippers and a sharp craft knife.

The box contains bases for 60 figures, being made up of 12 lots of 20mm x 20mm bases and 8 lots of 60mm x 40mm  – aimed at making up units, not at skirmishers. For “Saga” you need other bases or be willing to cut these into 20mm x 20mm sections with a metal ruler and a craft knife.

All in all a good set of figures suitable for a variety of games i feel. You can always use them in Warhammer Fantasy battle for human armies.

    It’s an excellent box. I used bits and some figures for my Crossbow Norman unit. Have a looksee here.

    I am hoping to use them for My SAGA warbands as well. The fact that the shields come separate from the arms is a big bonus, as well as the amount of plastic crossbows. I hope to add bows to some of them (from a separate source).
