Corvus Miniatures were a British wargames figure company that flourished briefly in the 1980s before disappearing without trace sometime after 1987 .
They produced a quite extensive range of 25mm figures that today would be called 28mm being around the same size as Foundry.
The began production in 1983 but the first advert I can find from them is in Miniature Wargames no 12
| Corvus advert from no 12 of MW showing 'New Releases'.|
The company steadily added new items to its listings. Including a Dark Ages range - which I had completely forgotten about - even though I'm sure I had some of the Normans and maybe some ofthe Welsh.
|Another advert- this one from MW13|
For me the best of their ranges was the ECW- much of it based on the the then very new Haythornthwaite book published I think by Blandford, which I may still have somewhere. The range would in time become quite extensive.

The next advert in MW15 shows more releases in different periods The company certainly had some ambition. My own view was that I almost always liked the figures I bought from them and found them of pretty high quality and detail.
|Another ad from MW15 though they missed off the company name !|
Though as others noted the horses tended to be on the small side.

|Some of the Corvus Normans.|
|Corvus Franco- Prussian War. I seem to recall seeing some of these at a Durham Wargames Group meeting. I was a member back then! |
