All i can say is these are lovely little kits that i really enjoy painting. The reason i do not do more of them is that the prices of these figure are stupidly high i think they  think the kids mums will pay any price  they dont diserve to be in business. There was a single figure in a  blister pack that was £22.50 how they hell do they get away with that 28mm high gobsmacked was the word . im glad they were brought for me and i told them not to do it again its a pity because they are nice figures

Lovely job!

You're absolutely right about the extortionate prices Games Workshop charge for figures. I'm old enough to remember when the Citadel 25mm figures went up from 25p to 60p overnight because the price of tin tripled. A similar, plastic figure now is £1 or more.
I soon discovered the Prince August range and started casting my own and a bit later the delights of silicone rubber and using the Citadel figures as a master to cast my own.

Nicely done Andy. These figures are nicely moulded - but not cheap....
