Default The Russian Alternative


The Russian Alternative is a new company selling 28mm (I think, Russian isn't my strong suit. But they mention GW so I assume it's 28) fantasy miniatures.

They currently only have two line: Elves and Barbarians, but they look stunning!

Examples

Let's hope there not 28mm, gw models are allot larger, more 33mm.

The elf general is nice.

Indeed! But I think 28mm is generally taken to mean anything from 25-35mm these days. I get the impression they will work perfectly well as GW stand ins though.

I'll try get in touch with them over the weekend for some concrete info, or see if I can find comparison pictures.

The barbarian characters are very tempting.

Scaling the image to give the barbarians a 25mm base they seem close to GW miniatures.

Damn, those Elves look nice.

One of the main reasons why I've never started a High Elf army is because of the really crap spearmen models; but seeing these beauties, I might reconsider....

From iron, cometh strength. From strength, cometh will. From will, cometh faith. From faith, cometh honour. From honour, cometh iron. This is the Unbreakable Litany, and may it forever be so.

Those are some damn fine looking models. Nice paint jobs too, to my unskilled eye anyway.

I love the barbarians. They would make great chaos warriors for WHF.
