With the influx of hatred for GW and their price increases, I have been seeing the name Mantic Games thrown around a lot more. I took a look at their lines of models, and I have to say they don't look too bad. The Dwarf models in particular really caught my eye.
In addition, they have announced a Science Fiction line of models to come out very soon. I think for a much better price, these models would definitely do the trick. Particularly with Fantasy. Fantasy, for me, is a fun type of game, much better than the previous edition. It is not nearly as competitive. (Pre-measure Dwarf Artillery?)
What do you guys think about 3rd party miniatures?
