Russian Alternative ?

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

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.

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.
