Alternative Dwarf Mini manufacturers

Hi All,

I am looking for a manufacturer of some better looking (than the Mantic Dwarfs) and reasonably priced minis with a consistent look - all should be heavily armoured

1H Weapons and Shields
Spears and Shields
2H Weapons
Long Rifles

Anyone have any suggestions?

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fireforgegames/stone-realm-hard-plastic-multi-part-dwarves-in-28mm-scale?ref=profile_created is on at the moment, so if you’re after things straight away probably not ideal, but a nice looking set of sculpts if they get them unlocked

https://en.momminiatures.com/copia-de-dwarfs resins, they’re nice

https://www.northstarfigures.com/list.php?man=257&cat=619&page=1 no rifles but decent plastics

https://westwindproductions.co.uk/index.php?route=product/category&path=74_174 probably too lightly armoured but worth a shout

Oathmark will sort the first three - they have a regular dwarf kit (standard chainmail type) and a heavy dwarf one in full plate - the former have hand weapons/spears, latter hand weapons/2hw. Kits are cross compatible

I’ve picked up those oathmarks for the melee stuff.

starting to look through STL files for the rifles.

If you want cheap, check out Em4

They may not look like much, but I have seen some easy paint jobs that fix them up to look great. Also the Crossbow can be easily converted to a rife. At 25p a model, I think you’ll be hard pressed to find cheaper.

Those look REAL familiar - like 90’s familiar.

aye they’re the old Grenadier plastics, the metals ended up in Italy with mirliton

I’ve managed to source everything i need from various manufacturers. looking forward to putting the list on the table.

I’m coming late to the party but Avatars of War have a very nice plastic range.

Oathmark have also just launched a kickstarter to hopefully release plastic dwarf kits.
