    I’ve had the same problem, and it’s cost me a few bob trying the ‘trial and error’ approach.

    I have the very lovely Little Big Men Studios Macedonian and Greek transfers in front of me.

    The Macedonian phalangite shield transfer “to fit Xyston Miniatures” comes in at 7.5mm diameter. That’s supposed to cover the whole of the shield of course.

    The hoplite shield transfers for Xyston are just 7mm, but they are not intended to cover the rim of the shield.

    I wasn’t buying the transfers for Xyston figures (long story). Someone told me recently that the Greeks, being an older Xyston range, are smaller figures, so it all becomes a bit of a lottery. I think it’s best to ask your transfer supplier.

    I don’t understand the preference for the plastic Spencer Smiths……….except the weight issue, my army is very heavy.

    Tricorns………and thigh length gaiters, baggy coats and lace. And floppy hats as well, so late 17thC is just great.

    One of my ambitions would be to do a re-sculpt of one of the HE originals to see what one of those marching musketeers would look like with crisply moulded detail!

    With you on that Henry – as you know I’m a SSM fan and such a figure would be a wonder to behold I’m sure. Couldn’t agree less about the plastics though – horrible furry things.

    I am mostly using Henry’s rules. I’m also rather fond of Rank and File.
