Ed's a very nice man.

I got 4 of each so 24$ plus 6$ postage and it went through at just over 20 for 12 models of that quality .......... and I know I said 13 earlier, but because I am a nice man too  :engel: he sent me a freebie -  one of the chaos looking guys.

I just saw the Wargames Factory skeletons. On first sight, I like them. Does anybody have them and can tell me how they look in reality?

I liked what I saw on the net as well.  I just ordered 30 off ebay, and I'll try to get you some pics once they get here.

As promised, images:







I assembled two samples, one with the "coming out of the ground" base and one as a full figure.  As you can probably see, they're a tad shorter than a GW fig, and seem very thin.  The thinness also made assembly a bit tougher than my previous experiences with GW figs.  But overall, I'm happy with them.

So basically they are the right size and dimensions and actually look like skeletons.

Unlike the mishapen lumps from GW

Because in your world, all people have melon heads?

They suck - just as the GW TK skeletons suck.

People seem to really like that model Fandir (the malifaux one).

I don't.
I thought he should act responsibly and just kill himself.

Wow, not impressed by those Mantic elves on dragons.  Not one bit.

If I was going to have a high elf army, I'd buy GW over that.

The Malifaux model might look better if his hat wasn't riding so far up on his head.  Might.

Well the ones you get with the normal figures are like VHS cases with foam padding, not a bad system and better than nothing.

And Mantic are not shit, they fill a niche and Some of their stuff is good value for money but a lot of it is kak.

Because they are small crybabies.

The SoM releases are pretty damn nice. And mostly plastic.
