New 10mm manufacturer
« on: October 24, 2019, 05:18:42 PM »
Has anyone got any of the figures from this manufacturer in Switzerland?

How do they compare in size to other companies? The pricing seems a little odd. Some things are quite cheap, others expensive.

Nothing wrong with them from the pictures posted. Pack sizes are a little odd as many sold as six or nine models which might account for pricing differences.

Wide range available, which is nice.  But, yes, odd in terms of the multiples that you'd have to buy to make up a unit.

Yes, typically it looks like you need to buy a command group and 3 sets of infantry to make up an infantry unit. Overall around £19 per unit.

For cavalry you need only 2 sets, both of which often seem to contain command figures, which is odd. 12 figures would also be around £19. Plus postage for both, whatever that might be from Switzerland. So not exactly cheap but there are some figures that aren't readily available elsewhere so you get what you pay for I guess.

The artillery is single pieces, (£3.50-£4.50 or so), so you can buy one or two as needed, which is helpful.

Perhaps most tempting are the goblin spider riders, no one else does those that I'm aware of, £4.50-ish for 6.

The dark elf range looks tasty as well.

Dark elves look a little bit small to me. Too massive.

In the other hand, sculpting job seem excellent about characters details.

Maybe it's possible to ask for precise order ?

The Empire war wagon would make an interesting proxy for the steam tank or even a Kislev war wagon.
