Get in there everyone than likes fantasy minis but doesn't have a General to hang around.
Today get Hyped be Momminiaturas new resin halbardiers in process. Any fantasy game without general are welcomed too.
The good thing about mom is the price, normally a human sized infantry mini is one euro the piece, while an hero is 4 (like the banner-men in pic). The quality is good too, it has minis ideal for Frostgrave, Morheim, Song of Blades and heroes or KoW, or for some WHFB proxies.
Warmonger Miniatures has to have some of the most interesting orcs out there, look at those Not-Landsnechts orcs. Wargames Foundry is a bit pricer (metal minis after all) but has lots of old school cool pieces.
Wargames foundry also has Kevin Adams goblins (Kevin Adams is the one than made the Gw classic goblins if I recall well) he is doing some aweseome ones for crooked claw miniatures.
Another good source of High quality minis is Cadwallon shop.
In there you can get Rackham Confrontation minis, more or less for 8-12 euros the human sized heroes, with high quality details and poses, all with beatiful aesthethics. A pity Rackham fucked up they made some of the best minis.
>Not liking classic minis.
Ral Partha isn't for you then. Even when they have some kekworthy minis here and there.
Westfalia is making an entire range of armed hobbits.
This one looks fucking cool, that helmet specially.
Also anyone has tried ShieldWolf minis? The orcs look interesting and the prices are good.
More minis, those are from Tale of War, a company than does some Dark Faery tale style, not cheap but they aren't bad for adding some character in your Mordeheim, Frostgrave or SoBH gang.
I don't dislike them tought I see what you mean.
Also for Ogre lovers and pirates, look no further. Titan forge has plenty of quality too in bases, mechanized dorfs or undead orcs.
I am after some egyptian skeleton themed miniatures, more precisely horseman and chariots. literally the only thing keeping me from doing a TK army, the official models are fucking shite but they could be so fucking good, surely someone made some so fucking good version of them right. any tips?
Depending on how many you want, you could kitbash them.
Here are some nice looking Egyptian chariots for $7 for 2. If you can find skeletons and horses, they'd work.
I've been compiling a list of miniature and terrain manufacturers as well as bits sites for a while, if anyone want it, seems like this thread would be a good place. It's not all fantasy and sci-fi though, lots of different things, 50's spacefarers, pulp heroes, historicals, you name it. And of course, I'd love to add more names if you guys know any more.
For you, anon. I'll have to post it here, I just have it as a note on my phone:
Pig iron productions
Secret weapon minis
Urban war (celtoslegion.de)
Iron wind metals
Full borer minis
Black hat minis
Bad robot minis
The assault group
Toy soldiers depot (for IG cannons)
North star minis
Avatars of War
Dice bag lady/ bad squiddo games
Tabletop-art (basing and treasures)
War torn worlds
Troll forged miniatures
Blue moon manufacturing
Hirst arts ( terrain molds)
Friend of mine picked them up are they are pretty decent, I had expected them to be restic or whatever but they are proper sprued plastic with plenty of bits.
The heads are a bit weird and I think they'd be the biggest point of contention.
Plenty of companies do alternate orc heads though so that's an option as, like I said, the rest of the kit is pretty good.
