As far as I understand, these miniatures are about 25mm in scale. And they come with a unique style that will let them stand out among other miniatures. (Lots of unusual monsters too). At this price it would also not hurt to cut them apart and use them for insane crafting projects.
The booster packs are pre-painted and at 12 USD for a brick with about 40 minis really a bargain.
Sadly I don't live in the US, because (?) so the shipping costs would kill me.
P.S. If somebody has any idea how I get around 100+ USD shipping costs, send me a message.
I got a few boxes of the Asian-themed Infantry and one of the Cavalry a while back. They are definitely smaller than 28mm, but I will be using mine to represent halflings... so it works. I haven't removed them from the sprue yet, so I can't say how easy putting the parts together will be yet. It should be noted that these DO NOT come with individual bases and have a "peg" on the bottom that is meant to fit into a unit base. The sculpts do look good, however.
I likewise have ordered from Miniatures Market quite a bit and have had little to no issues with them in the past. Their "Rewards" program kind of annoys me, given that it is only a 1 percent rate... but it's still better than most sites offer. My largest complaint with them, however, is that they don't update the count on their stock quickly enough. Several times I have placed an order, paid for everything, only to then receive an email that one of my items is sold out and that they issued me a refund for it.
miniature market shipping cost a lot ? isn't miniature market like reapers and giving you free shipping if you buy more then 35$ ? because i live in canada and my last shipment was free shipped to me.
This is only true for North America. To Europe it will cost at least 40 USD and after picking some of the bricks I had to pay about 150 USD for shipping. It broke my heart, but at this point I decided to let empty my shopping basket.
At this price I can wait until european vendors follow the trend.
The unpainted ones feel like model plastic. Not fragile. The prepaints a bit softer but not like bones. A few could use the hot water treatment to fix the "lean". And as you can see some of the prepaints could use touching up, a wash, or complete re-do.
erho: Too many minis, not enough time... Am I right?

sgtslag: If we could just do away with this whole "work" thing, and supporting ourselves, financially, and otherwise... Life always seems to get in the way of gaming. AHHH!!!...

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

erho: Yeah I'm down for a painting contect
Jun 8, 2020 14:28:59 GMT
sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.
Jul 26, 2020 20:12:40 GMT
sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...

randywest: does anyone know more manufacturers for 1/72 fantasy minis besides Dark Alliance, Caesar and Elhiem?
Sept 14, 2020 14:16:19 GMT
sgtslag: 50 Hills completed, 24 left to cover the sides on. Hoping to finish this project within the week. Then I'll post a build description. For war gaming, but it can cross over to RPG sessions... They match the ground 'cloth', perfectly.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:09 GMT
sgtslag: Sorry, randywest, the listed makers are the only ones I know.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:34 GMT
sgtslag: Ran out of Hot Glue, with only five hills left to add a skirt to the sides of. Wal-Mart closes at 8:00 PM, thanks to COVID. GRRRrrr! Another 30 minutes of work, and I would have been done: ~77 hills, modular, perfectly matching my table's ground cloth!

sgtslag: Will post a write-up soon, or after next week's vacation. Cheers!
