FeR miniatures is becoming one of the go-to sites for larger scale miniatures in recent times, developing a reputation for producing stunning busts and figures, and collaborating with sculptors such as Raffaele Picca and David Zabrocki. It is run by the equally talented painter Fernando Ruiz, who in fact painted the box art for the kit we're looking at here. Chances are that if you've seen a historical figure/bust on Facebook or Putty & Paint over the last 12 months, it's from this site!

Really need ...byPublished on 10-07-2013 06:00 AM

One of the biggest things Reaper has going for it, outside the amazing success of its recent Kickstarter project, is the amazing breadth of miniatures they have available. Pulling from that wide selection, I have recently acquired Blacktongue the Gnoll Ranger.

When this snake warrior arrived in the mail I must confess my first thought was: “Didn’t I kill thousands of this guy and his friends in the desert area of Diablo II?” Then my second thought was: “Wow, this thing is DETAILED! No wonder so many people like Banelegions.” Not that this is a Banelegions ...byPublished on 29-10-2012 08:25 PM
