Let’s compile some 28mm fantasy miniatures for Joseph A. McCullough’s & Osprey’s Frostgrave, & Rangers of Shadowdeep, Dungeons & Dragons, or any Fantasy tabletop game!
I’ve put together a living list of miniatures for Stargrave and really any Sci-Fi game, and it’s about time I do the same for fantasy miniatures and Frostgrave!
*This is a living list, meaning I will be updating it as I have more time and find more minis! Leave me a comment if there are some minis I should check out!

Frostgrave is in it’s second edition and has been well supported by North Star Military Figures. They have plastic kits for everything from Wizards to Barbarians to Gnolls. In addition to plastic, customizable kits, northstar also has a line of metal characters.
Black Chapel Miniatures has a small range, but they’re all pretty cool. Altreich (think GW Freeguild), Dwarfs, Norse Barbarians, and Elves.
Many different types of 28mm metal miniatures from Fantasy to Historic, to Sci-Fi.
Dark Sword Miniatures are beautiful, but expensive. I have some of their Critter Kingdom minis for Burrows & Badgers and they’re great. Would love to own more, but you’ll have to pick and choose as each metal mini is around $9.99. They do have a handy Miniature Finder on their site, that allows you to easily search for what you’re looking for, which is pretty handy.
Footsore Miniatures has a lot of options to choose from with metal miniatures: Character figures, Skirmish bundles, Knights, Archers, Vikings, Monks, Irish, & more!
Gripping Beast has quite a lot to choose from. They have Plastic Kits as well as metal mini bundles or single hero units.
Miniatures for the SAGA skirmish game. Historical, Mythological, Fantasy, and more. They have some undead ranges as well!
Sword point is their big battle ruleset. They have some plastic kits for sale in historics.
We all know about GW. There are a lot of plastic kits and units to choose from. Age of Sigmar is their fantasy line, if you don’t know much about them. GW is heroic scale, so keep that in mind. Certain models may tower over your 28mm historic minis.
Grand Alliance Order – Cities of Sigmar seem like the best fit for me. I’m privy to the Freeguild humans, but there are Dwarves, and Elves if that’s your preference. Remember that these are plastic kits with lots of options for customization.
Whimsical, bizarre, fairy tale and fable inspired, “Old School” miniatures. I suggest looking through their All The Minis section, as many of the different lines work well together. Northumbrian Tin Soldier has everything: Goblins, Dwarves, Cat-folk, anthropomorphic animals, and more! They sell single minis, small sets and big bundles. I can’t recommend them enough, their miniatures are amazing; I own quite a few.
“Odd and eccentric good citizens, guilds, and more unusual characters.” Very uniquely-styled humans.
Here are your goblins, anthropomorphic adventurers, gnomes, and Crow warriors. Would work great for Burrows & Badgers!
Dark fantasy knights, goblins, sub-humans, townsfolk, and more!

28mm fantasy gaming minis inspired by the early role-playing games. They have single minis and box sets of pewter miniatures. They are a bit on the expensive side with a box of 12 minis coming in at £55/$77. That being said, they have a voucher system, that essentially, lets you buy gift cards for extra funds. They have a wide range of D&D classes, monsters, mercenaries, and more. The sculpts looks amazing. I will be picking a few minis up, for sure!
There are 4 boxed sets available.
Perry Miniatures produces 28mm plastic and metal, historic miniatures sculpted by former Foundry and Game Workshop sculptors, Alan & Michael Perry.
For Frostgrave, I find 4 of their plastic box sets to work best:
36 infantry, and 6 Knights/men at arms. Spears, crossbows, double handed axes, and hand weapons
36 miniatures in total – 2 sprues of armored, Men at Arms, and 4 sprues of archers.
38 miniatures in total for the Foot Kniights box.
40 Miniatures: 30 Bowman, up to 18 billmen. 4 armored command.
That’s all I have time to post about for now. I have a pretty long list, so make sure you bookmark this post!
Leave me a comment if there are some fantasy or historical miniatures I am missing from this list, that I should check out!
