Where to find cool miniatures

Recommended Posts

I love painting artsy miniatures but sometimes it's hard to find places that sell nice busts and single figures. If anyone knows some cool places to get awesome miniatures please let me know!

Surprising no one, I imagine... I'd go with The Guardian. I love his staff and his cape thingy!

I recently found this website http://www.figone.fr/en/  which is a company in France and has the motherload of cool stuff. Now I just need to decide which miniature to get as a reward myself for an awesome month. 

Trying to decide between The guardianKhal-Agul The Night Walker, or Ydrasil

That one looks like medusa on a bad hair day.  I like the metal one.

The Guardian is so cool! And it's a lot different then anything I have already. The kid can fit inside the tank too!

I really like it, but I would find it hard not to glue on some rhinestone.

I vote guardian as well. Unless you want to work on refining flesh tones as a project, I think it offers more interesting opportunities.

While smaller scale than what you are gunning for, I’m intrigued by a Kickstarter that’s running right now.  I am toying with running a Norse-themed campaign and these guys look fun.  They have others on their site as well.

Here's a few places that I have bookmarked....

HEXXY has some really interesting minis.  These Griffon Riders keep calling to me, in particular:  https://hexy-shop.com/shop/fantasy-miniatures/lechistan-gryphus-winged-hussars-set-31/

Tabletop Art has some of the most interesting bases around.  https://tabletop-art.de/Base-sets_1

And I pasted this to the Countdown: Action Edition comments feed, but as a complete nerd about Monty Python and the Holy Grail, these miniatures will be mine someday.  http://www.studiominiatures.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=itemlist&layout=category&task=category&id=49&Itemid=505

They have a TON of pop culture minis from a lot of 80s and 90s movies.  Very fun.

That guardian is awesome.  I've bought miniatures from several sites. Usually the ones I buy can be purchased from several different sites, with prices usually close together.

Miniature Market: https://www.miniaturemarket.com/   Large collection. Sell items which can also be bought on other sites

Dungeonstone:  https://www.dungeonstone.com/   Make their own miniature landscape items plus sell Reaper minis. Cheap compared to other similar companies. I have bought several items from them including pillars, chests, and stalagmites. You will have to give your minis a good washing, as they have dust for the manufacturing process on them. They painted very nicely.
