        Holy cow! What an amazing array of prices!
        This will be a very popular contest, and not only because of the prizes, but the BaneLegion range is quite incredible!

            Random question- last year, the prize was the same for those that entered in the Wamp 2011 event, I take it they're not offering such an amazing price twice?

                      Are they? The reason I didn't order at the time was in a couple of photos the casting quality didn't look very good, though I've only heard good things on that front from them..

                        yeah excellent, I have reviewed two of their pieces (and painted one) and found the standard high. I think now they are all cast in house too so they can keep an even closer eye on the QA

                        Both my experiences were with the Banebeasts but I can't see why the Banelegions would be any different. They spend a lot of money getting them to production
