    What are your favourite miniature lines other than those by Privateer and GW?

    Let's hear something interesting, /tg/.

    Personally, I'd marry the first person to buy me something from Lead Adventure, but I'm too cheap to pay those 19% German taxes. Overpriced as fuck. DSW has some really nice sculpts too. But I'm really not too familiar with what else is out there.

    Sick of GW GW GW.

    Lots of nice stuff out there (including some of GW's...)

    Werner Klocke over at Freebooter gets it right every now and then (pic), when he doesn't screw up the faces.

    Another nice range is Hell Dorado. Sadly my Li Tsu Tsin seems to have been miscast or damaged, so time to see if their customer service is up to task.

    Another really good sculptor is Tre Manor. He 's done some work for Reaper, and also sells some of his stuff directly over at http://www.red-box-games.com/

    Old Crow, they're a personal favorite of mine and others for their resin vehicles in 25mm(yes, this does also work perfectly well with 28mm), 15mm and 6mm scale.

    Very good quality casts, only ever had miniscule air bubbles (pin-head sized) pre-sanded parts to fit together, though it's the kind of resin that instantly glues with super-glue so be careful. Very decent prices (the two vehicles here are about the same size as a rhino and were just under £10 each), nice extras to customize vehicles such as baggage, also able to order turrets and weapons separately (the light tank came with 3 different main weapon barrels and 3 different turret pod weapons by default). Many otherwise likely to break bits like weapon barrels are in nice durable metal not resin to boot.

    I would love any miniature company as long as their minis are decent and they can be bought in a physical shop. I like looking the mini over, checking it for faults that might lead to easy breakage or moulding mistakes, and I like to be able to return it right away if that happens. But most of all, I like instant gratification.

    Peter Pig, great producer of rule sets and figures in 15mm for a lot of periods, including the (in)famous AK47 Republic. Good detail, good casting (easy cleanup), good price. Interesting rules sets too, all designed with a nice bit of period fitting flavour, Bloody Barons is pretty much the go-to set for Wars of the Roses for instance.
