Well...honestly...not this time. We thought we would take a brief look over what has frankly been one of the strangest and most disruptive years for everyone, both in and out of the hobby community. And then try, with a bit of positivity, to go through some things we can hopefully look forward to in the New Year.
Valkiria are one of my favourite companies and I love the pin up style they have produced. I have reviewed a few of their miniatures before. However; Valkiria have started a new range called Terra Ferox which is (loosely) translated by myself from Latin meaning Iron Earth. The Latin for iron is Ferrum and the Latin for Earth is Terra so if Pawel or one of the team would like to validate or crush my assumption; that would be great haha.
This range is a massive change in direction from the pin-up girls and they have launched the range with a very nice duo. So I couldn't really resist giving the start of the new range a going over.
As we see the end of 2020 and say good riddance to possibly the worst year all across the globe, I have decide to take a look at something that projects a ray of light into the hobby world. If you are as impressed with this piece as I was then hopefully you will go and support Drakae Miniatures too.
Chloe first came to my attention when Maria Jesus Romano was sculpting the bust and also asking for feedback from the community. I was happy to see Chloe come to life as she is the first bust from Drakae Miniatures and it was very cool to see the project come to completion.
Back in May, Maria put a pre-order up for Chloe and at €25, who wouldn’t be tempted. I purchased a copy for my daughter, Ani-Mae to paint, but sadly lockdowns and other things have put a halt to that as we live in different households. But once this whole debacle has showed us is backside we can get to sitting down and going for it.
Alternity Miniatures has been running for some time now and have been steadily building their catalogue (currently sitting at 73 various releases!). I thought I would take a look at one of their early busts this week. That being Adamski sculpted by Joao Paulo Ferreira who is no stranger in our reviews.
Dragonhead Models hit the ground running with their huge (54mm sized) release of Luthias Elwin & Rymmaig the Forest Dragon.
