Artel W Miniatures: Witcher (28mm)
by: Andras  |  Vendor:
I have recently discovered small companies producing resin figures of all sorts- mostly alternative Warhammer 40K figures and conversions (my main interest), and figures of characters from computer games and books. In this case we have the witcher, Gerard of Rivera himself, drawing his sword. Well, one of them, most likely. (I think it would be awkward using two of those things at the same time.)   >> READ MORE

Chaos Hive Bringer (28mm)
by: Andras  |  Vendor: Grim Skull Miniatures
There is a small cottage industry focusing on producing figures and other accessories for popular tabletop games. Warhammer 40K is no exception. One prominent company producing resin alternatives and conversion sets is Grim Skull Miniatures; their Hive Bringer (khm… Tyhpus) is the subject of this review.


Games Workshop has a newly issued (plastic) chaos-corrupted version of Typhus, so there are definitely choices out there. This particular figure is absolutely gorgeous. He holds either a scythe or two sickles (these held in reverse John Woo style), and he definitely looks corrupted. The detail and definition is simply superb. All the cysts, boils and blisters are lovingly re-created, alongside with the horns sticking out of the cracks of his power armor.

Da Vinci Flying Pendulum Clock
by: George Redell  |  Vendor: Academy
Leonardo da Vinci did not invent the pendulum clock. The first mechanical clocks were invented around the start of the 14th century. Da Vinci did improve on the design of the pendulum clock making it more accurate. The Da Vinci design was different because it included separate mechanisms, one for minutes, and another for hours. The clock operated by using a small metal ball, connected to a string, which wraps around a brass post, then unwinds repeating on to another brass post. By lengthening or shortening this string it would adjust the speed of the time. A counterweight acts as the clocks power source.

Garandur Silver Wolf (1:20)
by: Peter Ong  |  Vendor: Joaquin Palacios Studios’s
Most European-made resin and white metal fantasy figure kits come in original designs with ornately-crafted armor and melee (axe, staff, or sword), or ranged weapon (bow and arrow) choices.
These fantasy figures come in the scales of 54mm (1/32) and 75mm (1/24) since these figures are often meant to stand alone and not accompany a kit such as an armored vehicle. Therefore, Joaquin Palacios Studios’s 80mm “Garandur Silver Wolf” offers amazing detail in a scale suitable for solo display.

Demon Vanguard
by: Peter Ong  |  Vendor: Limbo Miniatures
Introduction

Limbo Miniatures enters into the realm of fantasy with the release of two popular monsters, the “Demon Vanguard,” a demon creature that resembles a popular hobbit and troll movie or videogame series, and the “Medusa,” the infamous female monster with a hair of snakes and a stare that can turn men into stone.
Deemed as a cross between a model kit and a resin statue, the Demon Vanguard figure is too large to be considered a wargaming miniature. While a scale isn’t given for the Demon Vanguard, modelers should note that Limbo Miniatures cites a height of 80mm from the bottom of the base to the top of the demon’s head.
