Does anyone know if there scale is close to Warhammer Fantasy. I know its 28mm but how do they look side by side?

I really want to use some of their dwarf models to give my army some extra character!

Their scale is almost right on. I have their Dwarf Slayer model and he looks just a hair bigger, but nothing you are going to notice unless you are looking for it. I can speak to the quality of thier sculpts as I have several of their Dwarfs. They will make excellent additions to your army.

Nice detail, but, my god, the poses are so dull. The upper body has some changes, but for the most part they are static.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

Yeah, for a D&D game I would use these in a heartbeat to represent my characters.

I own several of the chacters and can honestly say I am really impressed

For the most part they are about 1mm taller, really not a big deal, but the orc warboss on foot is huge, large even compared to GW black orcs, not a massive deal as it makes da boss look like dis da biggest.

The Chaos marauder (1st version) is nice not as brutal as the gw ones but fits nicely, I use it as wulfrik as I don't like GW verson. The newer one looks really nice and is on the to buy list as well as the HE mage and the chaos armour lord, stayed away as I have read negative views about him

The bad side of the models tend to be the casting gates and the glue joints. For example the orc shaman, marauder, and i think both the boss and the necro all have seperate hands, to glue on to points that are really thin, and virtually impossible to pin so that the biggest problem I found.

They have also started into plastics so I would really keep an eye on these guys

I've got their Wizard, Orc Hero and twice the Netherhound.

Unfortunately, my Orc has a slight miscast, so the heads on his back are flat, without any details. Fortunately, I know how to use greenstuff

But for the rest, beautiful figs!

I've seen alot of these models. The gaming store I go to stocks a few things every now and then and they are gone within a week of coming in. I love the detail on them. Excellent company.

Yeah, we flew our space church across 500 light years to get to this planet taken over by the space orks. Now we're going to drop from orbit in buckets and run out and shoot pistols and hit people in the head with chainsaws. Yeaaaah Ultramarines!
