Today I present you another review: an Iron Golems Halfling Team for Blood
I received four players I want to show you today.
Iron Golems is a small company from Valencia, Spain, run by Lucas and Ricardo.
As both are players as well, they dedicate their time to create high quality
miniatures and products for their favorite game - Bloodbowl. Until now they
offer a human team, elves and dwarfes plus some star players. The next big
thing is rather small: Halflings.
If you compare the designs to the Halflings from big G they look more realistic
and somehow more „dirty“ – in a positive way. If Halflings have allways been a
fun team (or army in Warhammer). But these fellows look badass.
The miniatures are produced in high quality resin. I guess it is nearly
impossible to cast these in metal, due to the details. The quality of the
production miniatures is perfect. All details are smooth and even the smallest
parts are awesome casted, for e.g. spikes.
The only drop of bitterness is the fishskin. It is not too much but enough to
mean a little bit of cleaning work.
The figures are designed totally cool: They look modern and violent but without
loosing the humor Halflings need. Forks and Bowls are typical kitchen-elements
found on this little guys.
I am unsure if the design of the spikes and other small breakable elements will
work on hard used resin gaming figures, because resin breaks so easy. The spikes are the finest and sharpest spikes I have seen till now on resin
figures, even on display figures in larger scales and it looks so amazing.
The figures came with bases in the 2017 edition base size – in my opinion a bit
large for these little figures, but that might be a question of taste.
Iron Golems send me some skill markers for the bases as well. A realy nice
idea. Until now the easiest way I have seen to apply the skill color to a base.
They fit really perfect to the bases.
Iron Golems brought us a fantastic new line of figures presenting one oft he
most iconic Fantasy-Football-teams. They will be a joy to paint and an
eyecatcher on every field.
+ great cast
+ only some cleaning, no glueing
+ fantastic designs
- fragile spikes – lifespan on the field unknown
Today I want to show you something really cool – compatible to many
fantasy games eg. AOS or Frostgrave: The stunning figures from rotten factory
(www.rottenfactory.eu). The forces of chaos are really iconic, but my favorite
god always was the master of decay. Rotten factory brings us a great range of
mutated chaos warriors presenting the foulness and decay in a most positive
First things first: I have to say that I have a little fetish for nice
packaging – especially if it is connected to the stuff inside. Rotten factory
delivers their stuff in a paperbox printed with their logo – really nice.
Inside the box were three figures I show you today: Koliath the Conqueror, Hrumm
and a Demon Minion.
The figures are made of a light grey resin. The resin looks quite durable. The quality of the cast is
really fine. Only a small amount of fishskin and no airbubbles occure. The
seams are minimal, so you don’t need much time if you start to paint them.
Concerning the design the figures are really fresh.All of them are
designed and sculpted by talented Paweł Jakub
Górecki.One of his specialties seems to be fur, as this is really well made and very fine detailed. The figures
have classic elements and some more modern design features. They look a bit
more adult then the figures from '"big G" but not as explicit as for example some
helldorado designs. I like especially the figures that modernize the classic
80s look. Hrumm is great example how classic designs can be transformed to a
modern level – well done rotten factory.
Another important fact is always the pricing. Rotten factory is a true
winner in this category. The price is really fair. For under 10€ you get an
extraordinary casted piece of resin – other companies in this level charge much
more. Shipping is fair as well.
Rotten factory is offering the chance to create a unique
army for most fantasy skirmishers out there. The figures will make a great
addition to every large army with a chaos and especially decay theme. The
pricing is fair and the quality magnificent. The only small minus is that they
don’t come with a base – but I guess all of you will have enough bases to solve
this problem. I really reccomend taking a closer look at their range at
