15mm Personality Figures

The following is a compendium of 15mm personality figures offered by various miniature companies to aid Fanatici interested in building armies around specific historical personages. The truth be told, some personality figures are based on historical representations such as busts or portraits, while others are created in the mind of the sculptor. You should try to take a look at each personality figure before buying to make sure it meets your expectations. In addition, there are undoubtedly numerous "General" and other generically named figures offered in other ranges that would be suitable for representing specific historical personages, but they are not listed here because of the naming/marketing convention adopted by the maker. Fanatici feedback, both in terms of reviews, pictures or suggested additions, are welcome.
