Most European-made resin and white metal fantasy figure kits come in original designs with ornately-crafted armor and melee (axe, staff, or sword), or ranged weapon (bow and arrow) choices.
These fantasy figures come in the scales of 54mm (1/32) and 75mm (1/24) since these figures are often meant to stand alone and not accompany a kit such as an armored vehicle. Therefore, Joaquin Palacios Studios’s 80mm “Garandur Silver Wolf” offers amazing detail in a scale suitable for solo display.
