    I am looking for 12-15mm figures that look like Barlowe’s inhabitants of the Vega System:

    Barlowe’s Vegans

    The closest thing I’ve found are these Meerkat “familiars” from Reaper Minis (code RPR03713):

    Does anyone know how tall are those meerkats?  Like I said above, I hope they are somewhere between 12mm and 15mm tall.

    Thanks!

    Anything from these 15mm fantasy figs you could use https://www.magistermilitum.com/scale.html?cat%5B0%5D=59679&cat%5B1%5D=59937 ?

    I don’t have any of these miniatures so can’t answer unfortunately, but Reaper has a pretty responsive customer service team—might be worth sending them an email. [email protected]

    As an aside, love that Barlowe  book; I got a copy in strategic reserve* so that when my toddler son is older, he can hopefully leaf through it.

    Not sure how big they are but real life meerkats are around a foot long, a little larger if standing on their hind legs, so a 28mm scale one is going to be only a few mills tall.

    North Star also have 28mm scale meerkats (at £3.40 for 10) though they look even smaller than the Reaper ones.

     

    Growing old is mandatory, growing up is entirely optional!

    Thanks guys!  I’m gonna take the plunge and order both the Reaper and North Star ones.  May the best meerkats win the Vegan title.  🙂

    UPDATE

    The Reaper ones measure about 10-12mm, so they are going to be PERFECT as Vegans* for 15mm gaming!  I ordered two sets so that I can try some conversions on one of the sets (add weapons, backpacks, etc).

    I’m still waiting for the North Star ones.  Even if those don’t work out, I’m just glad I ordered two sets of the Reaper ones.

    Thanks everyone.
