Wargames Atlantic Aztec Warriors Review

Welcome to this Aztec Warriors Review. In this post, I take a close look at the new 28mm Aztec miniatures by Wargames Atlantic. For those who don’t know these minis are the second set of their Renaissance line. They pretty much came out at the same time as their very popular 28mm Conquistadors miniatures.

In this review, I have pictures of the minis, sprues and a scale comparison too. At the end of the post, there is even a video version of the review.

Now, let’s take a closer look.

The Wargames Atlantic Aztec Warriors

Below is how Wargames Atlantic describes their Aztec Warriors miniatures.

From the highly ritualistic Flower Wars that were fought to take sacrificial victims, to the brutal battles against the Spanish Conquistadors, the Aztec Empire produced some of the finest warriors of the New World.

This hard plastic box set allows you to build up to 30 warriors equipped with bow, atlatl, machuahuitl, spears, slings, and more along with a variety of body and head types to build many of the warrior types. There are also components to build full command.

Each box includes five of the frames to build 30 figures.

Having seen the box art and product description, let’s move on to what is in the box.

The Aztec Warriors Sprues

Inside the box, we get enough of the sprues below to make 30 miniatures.

I must say that I like the simplicity of these miniatures. They are fairly detailed, but extremely easy to build.

Building the Miniatures

As mentioned above, these are easy to build. No complicated three part two handed weapons here to worry about. Everything is in arm already (aside from the shields).

Building Wargames Atlantic Aztec Warriors miniatures - 28mm
First I cut out all of the parts and cleaned up their sprue connections.

I then glued them together saving the heads for last. Feel free to do it how you wish, but they are certainly on the easy side to build.

Here is the test batch that I built all standing together. They look nice!

Now, let me show you some closer pictures of these Aztec Warriors.

Here we have close ups of the minis. Let’s go through them.

If you watch the video, you will see that I had to do some thinking to figure out how those feathers out. There are multiple sets of feathers and each set fits on just one head. You just have to dry fit that part before you glue it on.

Overall, these minis look really good and I like how simple they are to build. Now, let me show you how they scale up against other miniatures.
