I’ve had my eye on the Elf Light Infantry plastic miniatures by North Star Military Figures for some time. In fact, I wrote a quick preview post about this very product. North Star Military Figures produced these miniatures in partnership with Osprey Games for Oathmark.
For more on Oathmark, take a look at my Oathmark section on my website. For now though, come join me in this review of Elf Light Infantry for Oathmark by North Star Military Figures.
Disclaimer: North Star Military Figures sent Must Contain Minis a box of Elf Light Infantry for review purposes. While we accept review products, we are in no other way compensated for the posts on Must Contain Minis and reserve the right to give positive and negative reviews. Regardless, this review will give you a better idea of the product.
Now, let’s take a closer look!
What’s in the Box
Open up the box and you find six identical sprues as well as thirty 25mm square bases.
As you can see, you get weapon options to equip all of your miniatures with either all bows and arrows or all sword and shield.
Given 30 miniatures per box, each box gives you enough to build a minimum of a unit and half of figures. In Oathmark you can group your infantry into units of 5 to 20 miniatures.
Next, let’s take a look at some of the miniatures I built.
To give the miniatures a go, I built up my first 10 figures for this review. Despite building just 10 to start, I already know how I am going to build the unit. I plan to build 10 Rangers (bow and hand-weapon) and 20 Pathfinders (hand-weapon and shield).
Rather than showing all of the minis, I am going to stop there. I plan to make all of my 10 Rangers with masks and the 30 Pathfinders without hoods. So far, I really like how the minis look. They come with plumes for the helmets, but I am not going to use them. They look good without.
As with all of my miniature reviews, I like to give my readers a sense of scale for the miniatures. They are 28mm, but how do they fit in with other manufacturers? Below are two quick pictures to show you.
Wrapping it up
There you have it, my review of plastic Elf Light Infantry miniatures for Oathmark made by North Star Military Figures.
Overall, they are very nice miniatures. I can see them being used in Oathmark, Rangers of Shadow Deep, Frostgrave and any number of other games too. Aside from the 5 heads with just hair, you don’t really see their ears. Their proportions are also pretty human like, so I think you could even proxy them as human models if you want.
Before ending, I have to thank North Star Military Figures again for sending the miniatures in for review.
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
