Corvus Belli was established in 2001 as a project involving three friends. Fernando Liste, Carlos Torres, and Pilar Rivero joined their forces to create 15mm historical military miniatures, and this line of miniatures would quickly sneak into the historical game market due to their high quality sculpts.

Ranges were produced for Celts/Gauls, Early Imperial Romans, Numidians, Spanish, Kappadokians, Carthaginians, Hundred Years War and various baggage options.

The images below are from a range of sources, including an archive of the old Corvus Belli Store. Plastic Soldier Company, WiiPlay2, The Miniatures Page, MadAxeMan and various other smaller sources such as blogs and sales posts.

The original range of miniatures stopped being produced in the early 2010s, but some have since been licensed out again.

A tense silence before the battle hung over the ranks. Through the mist, a distant shadow advanced over the rasping sound of metal against metal. Short and sharp cries are followed by the clatter of arms crashing into shields, the harbinger of glory or death.…Your destiny beckons, are you prepared for it?

Totentanz Miniatures

Some of these miniatures became available again in 2017 via Totentanz Miniatures.

After a very long absence, the original historical miniature line by Corvus Belli is returning and will be available in early 2017!

Corvus Belli would like to announce the return of our 15mm historical miniatures range. After a long absence, our miniatures return to the market with a license conceded to Totentanz Miniatures, which will produce the models that introduced Corvus Belli to the world.

Beginning this December, fans of this line will be able to enjoy the original range of the Early Roman Empire, Celts, and the Hundred Years War. These factions will be completed early 2017 along with the Iberians, Numidians, and Carthaginians, among others. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did (and still do).

As with most PSC Mortem et Gloriam releases, these miniatures are manufactured under licence from Corvus Belli, they originally appeared in metal, but PSC have done a splendid job of relaunching them in Ultracast (bendy resin to me and you). The first boxes, Romans and Celts, were made available in July 2020.[1]

Moulds were retooled from the original metals, albeit some with minor changes such as composite shields. [2]
