Russian Alternative ?

Ask yourself , what is real? 5 sense filtered reality is a very limited perspective.

wow some of those are really nice
Why don't you knock it off with those negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change .

I bought some chaos dwarfs a few years back. This was from ebay, no problems with payment or delivery, it just took a while (but they said so and I was okay with it). They sell most stuff in resin and for a few dollars more in metal. I picked resin and there were some dodgy bubbles in places but nothing major. Supposedly the metal versions are better. you get what you pay for. I was impressed by their packaging. very professional and there was no breakage in the resin...until I laid my hands on it.

I really like their sculpts, keep in mind though that what is pictured must have been painted by some god-like being.

I have a bunch of their chaos marauders in my Norscan army, way better miniatures than the GW marauders, and well priced as well. I especially liked the weapons and axes. The bodies were good, but if you get many, the poses are a bit repetitive without conversion work. The heads were the weakest area, although the helmeted ones were generally fine.

Most of the shields in the shieldwall are russian alternative.

The Chaos Dwarves look great. I have no idea of resin quality though.

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

I love their range. Never really bough metal figures though.  :smile2:
As for the resin it is of average quality, breaks relatively easilly, so I had to be careful with mustache and small parts, but the detalization is very high and the price is more that reasonable.

My Desert Dwarfs http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=52647.0 are from them.

I considered some of their Chaos Dwarves a few years back. It's all great, but pricey.
I agree with the inhumane treatment of animals.
