ATS has long been a source of great Marx recasts. Now they have a fabulous page of Reamsa and Jescan medievals...prices are rich, but not obscenely so...excellent value actually. The William Tell character figures are great. But the variety of other sets is well worth a look. These gauls are a treat for instance.

Reamsa of spain is another old maker of medievals close to my heart. In the late 90s and early 2000s they were recast, and I aquired a few. I really loved them, especially since lords, ladies, lute players falconers, and the like are hard to come by.  They are comparable to Marx in sculpt quality, with a massy solid feel. I like them better than Starlux or charbens, and the medieval line is superior to marx in historicity. Anyway...I just gobbled up a lot of court figures for our games at a decent price.  I shouldn't have, but I couldn't let the opportunity slip.

Publius has been doing some high end plastic figures of late, many great subjects including early medieval finns, byzantine infantry, merovingian franks, and crusaders..also some fantasy, like this dwarf...Pricy, but really superb.  Cast in a soft plastic resin that is said to mix very well with old playset polyethelene figures. They are available as individuals here http://siberia-miniatures.ru/index.php?manufacturers_id=46&sort=4a&page=3
