Sierra Toy Soldier Company
« on: December 19, 2021, 10:58:04 AM »
Anyone here every purchase from the Sierra Toy Soldier Company? I know nothing about minis but they popped up in my email and I have been browsing their site...they have tons of impressive figures and even the predecessors of the NY State Guard unit I am currently in from the US Civil War:

Curious if anyone has an opinion either way. They also have a lot of First World War era figures and vehicles, which are pretty pricey:

Thanks all

Never ordered from there, but those figures look quite cool and price seems about on par for pre-painted models of those sizes.  60mm is pretty big if you want to use them for mini gaming (15mm or 28mm is the standard), but if you're buying them for decoration the larger size is ideal.

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Thanks man, I got a single soldier of the 14th Brooklyn, New York State Militia, which was federalized during the Civil War...direct predecessor of today’s State Guard. Meaningful to me on two different levels.

For a 60mm figure?  Seems real standard to me.
