Yeah TB disappearing is definitely a blow for Araby proxies as I feel they were the best available ones.

Maybe I am more specific about this than most of you, but the thing I'm most looking for is a decent quality of Figures. Many of the 10 mm ranges aren't up to par.

For me personally, this offsets the price for my army in a huge way. Just to indicate that the previous stats on price and money you're willing to spend isn't a definitive item.

Yes, I think I know what you mean.

For me, I was absolutely disinterested in making a Dogs of War army, but the Warmonger miniatures were so good I bought 6 units of them and will probably buy more.

Agree with Sjapie.  A decade ago, the GW 'originals' seem to have raised the bar considerably for 10mm quality.   From my recent experience a good deal of the Eureka stuff is on a par in terms of quality/number of poses.  Ditto Copplestone and Warmonger with the latter being especially good.  Other 10mm manufacturers lack basic detailing.  Some of them also expect you to buy their minis without even bothering to put pictures of them on their website.  Or they put up pictures with slap-it-on paint-jobs that obscure the detail.

I contacted GW - they said they might to print on demand for Warmaster. I was wondering if we get a big enough order together, maybe they'll do it by request.

My kingdom for a 2000 point Araby army!  GW I'll just set up a Direct Debit with you and you can take it all.

If that is true I would buy several armies just in case. Hell I'd take whatever I can. Is 2000 points enough?

Empire
Skaven
Orks
maybe Chaos

But I must admit that it sounds too good to be true.
