hey all. i just had a revelation i had to share.
for the last couple days, i've been looking over a new miniatures company, mantic games. I happen to really like thier miniatures. not only because of thier looks, but heck are they cheap. 25.00 big ones for 20 spearmen with full command.
yea they may be thinner then mose elven models (at least, thier first range is elves) but hey, they're elves, they're supposed to be that way right?
so anyway, having to happen to catch a rare picture of thier upcoming dragon model (which frankly blow's GW's high elf one out of the park, across the city, and into the deep blue sea) i have decided that after i have painted my backlog of mini's i will be buying from mantic for a bit. not only will thier upcoming undead range help beef my tomb kings army, but thier elves will provide a welcome challenge to the painting front. with thier great prices, how can i refuse?
that, and thier packaging is genius. the boxes they come in are designed to be re-used as carry cases for the very miniatures they hold!
the one downside is that they are a british company, which means big shipping on my end, but my local store owner has just informed me he will be ordering them at a discount for all that want them. this is great news.
as a birthday present to myself (17 on friday) i will be preordering thier messenger bag deal.
