Iron Golem Halflings


Small – smaller – Halflings

Today I present you another review: an Iron Golems Halfling Team for Blood Bowl.
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.





Conclusion:

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

Review time - rotten factory



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 way. 



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.


Conclusion: 

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 www.rottenfactory.eu.

+great designs
+fantastic quality
+fair price
-no gaming bases included
