This what I think it is? Why are they not making this stuff avaiable in general? I think their product rocks and the only thing keeping me from buying it is the distributor situation. (Lives in US.)

These guys are create a tremendous amount of product on market, lots of it aimed at 40K players. Whatup?

tehnolog is distibuted in other countries not under its original name (and probably price). For the US, the label would be IMEX, some stuff can be seen and bought here: http://www.thewarstore.com/IMEXPlatformerHexagon.html

Oh, and it is 28mm style  :smile2: ...at least some of the stuff. I did not find the castle though.

That 'The Wargame' in the link seems like a direct rip-off of Axis and Allies, time setting and even the miniatures used are exactly the same!

Shame they don't sell the castle, it might make an excellent alternative for the GW one.

The only castles I could find (so far) at the IMEX site were 1/72 and 1/32 scale.

However, they have some nice 28mm buildings for fairly affordable prices:

Just found some of their stuff (?) at The War Store as well (fantasy stuff near bottom of page):

Imex and Pegusus Hobbies have somthing to do with bringing them over. If you check out the web-page they show the modular nature and how they assemble. (Allin you russian bastard, how very jelous I am of you :icon_cry: Allin, Time to start a importing business.)

Im actualy a big fan of these guys. The moulds from pegusus hobbies of the broken gothic buildings are modular and excelent in the extreme, I own them and can not give them high enough praise. Perfect for 40K or ruined chapels of Magnus in the forest of shadows. Im not shure how the Technolog, IMEX, CONFLIX, Pegusus Hobbies, Urban Mamoth circle works... but some kind of magic is happening here!

Technolog seems to use a very outdated form of plastic injection moulding cuppled with a very new routing machine that is capable of making whatever they produce in CAD. Hats off to whoever is doing the work!

Some more photos... Hope you play necromundia.
(If you do play necromundia... You have been waiting almost 15 years for plastic kits like these.)
(Technolog uses a modular facing system that... well is insane and allows you to craft whatever you want. As a mechanical eng. kind of guy I can say these kits are a work of art.. I dont understand why they are not more popular.)

CASTLE CRAFT KITS
http://www.tehnolog.ru/product/castle_craft.php





Perfect Empire Castle or Town Wall or start on your own town buildings. The walls break down into little squares and go up in a number of ways. I believe these are the best kits they make. In the last image you can "see" the "squares" they break down into.

ROBO GEAR KITS
http://www.tehnolog.ru/product/robogear.php
http://www.tehnolog.ru/product/robogear/desant_empire.php


Imagine 3D spacehulk. Underhive dwellings. AT43, GOMC1 or 40K.
I would like to add that Technolog is the basis for a ton of Ork Technology out there, I even converted a Imperial Knight kitbashing their components with some imperial Icons. (Big Photo)

HEX_PLATFOMER KITS
http://www.tehnolog.ru/product/stroi_nabori.php




What the "man" has been hiding from you is they have come out with more. Ultraclix and Mage Gothic.

Somthing Else.... (PIMANKA?)
http://www.tehnolog.ru/product/bp.php


The adult version of Robogear I suspect. Repackages with their Ultraclix range and resculpted infantry. Im told its marketed against 40K in russia. (These guys make awesome miniatures with really shitty rules... in some ways its a comparable company to early Grandma Wendy.)

Technolog FANTASY
http://www.tehnolog.ru/product/bf.php
There is a lot of product in this range, so far its their bigest hit. The following image recieved my attentnion however.

Its some kind of fantasy wall with some crazy designs included in the kit. All I could think was necromundia/mordhiem.



Im not shure any of their miniatures really standup against their GW counterparts, until you get to this range then some of them look decent. Im guessing at this point they hired a sculpter and scaned the designs into the computer or got a tallented graphic artist. Anyways they definately have their own "stile" at this point.

IN CONCLUSION
This is a company that is doing fairly well, they have had an explosion of product in the last year. Its well worth keeping an eye on technolog. There is a good chance they are going to make some intresting contributions in the near future to our hobby if they keep it up and can bring their product to a international market.

Myself and several of you guys are really into the miniature terrain aspect of the hobby. (I have made a number of gaming tables now... must be about 15ish) Having seen 3 panels of the castle I must say that the quality and versitility of the castle product range is on par with games workshops buildings if lacking detail. I would love the chance to combine and kitbash them. The true power of these new kits might be in mordhiem or creating whole empire villages. If anyone has knowlage of how to get my hands on the castle or ultraclix ranges I would be intrested and feel free to post.

Although excited with the castle range... im just as intrested in seeing what they do next.

Your thoughts?

The Conflix empire houses are also made of the same foam the wizards tower is made from. (realy strange stones used... they are textured but it looks more like lava rock.) The confix houses are definately made by a diffrent manufactor, im told they are korean.

....... made of the same foam ................

Foam - That worries me.

Polystyrene stuff I've seen in the past is just too fragile. Is this plastic or what?



So do we know what the various products are made of?

You know I have some of them and although you expect it to be like the white stuff or the pink/blue high density think of it more like a fragile resin. Ive had no problems with it, just dont step on em.
