Prepainted minis. 9 Years, 5 Months ago  
Hey all,

A couple of years back I recall having seen a set of metal prepaints in a pack together, and now for the life of me I can't recall who made them or sold them. There were about eight to a package, and they were arranged in a horizontal fashion. The paint jobs were no great shakes but they looked "good enough". They were all adventurer types. I want to buy a gift for a friend and include both monsters (a few packs of Lizardmen and Orcs from here at the 'forge) and adventurers.

Greatly appreciate the help!

EDIT: Found 'em. They're made by e4M and sold at adavancinghordes.com!

Crystal Caste does them, I have all 4 of the "adventurer" sets. I picked up the first 2 half price at a clearance and they were good enough I got the other two from Nobleknight. I was pleasantly suprised that the level of detail was much better than I had expected.

E4M Makes Some, But there is also another Company that Does Pre Painted Metals, (Though Not as Extensive a Selection), That Company is www.holistic-design.com


I Think that they have some Necromunda-esque Dark Future Games as Well...

GW is doing a non-collectable pre-painted minis click game based on The Lord of the Rings, IIRC.

re: LOtR TMG


Doing under the Sabretooth games header, the distribution is random in the boosters, the scale is 40mm, the starters are non-random, the bases are a hez shape with some slider bars to track combat stats.

I have some of the LotR minis. The sculpts and paint are in most cases superior to what WizKids produces, and the game is pretty straightforward, using hex gameboards. The bases, though, look like they were stolen from a circus! Very shiny light or dark green with stat information in white, including the Ring inscription, plus either red or orange sliders! Gah!

One funny thing is an invisible "Frodo wearing the One Ring" on a base without a figure on it...

Dungeon Delver,

I Guess I Forgot The LOTR Minis... (Probably Because I Do Not Own any of them)... I Did Not Realize that these were GW...

Tdaraa,

Yes, I Thought I Remembered the Boosters Being Random... Do You have any of these?

:lol: That is Funny... Somehow I Might Have Expected a Transparent Plastic Mold... But No Figure at all is Kind of Classy in a Way...

I'm in the process of getting a few, the local game store has the starters at $5 each, so it's hard not to pick up a few just to give it a look. I won't (I promise) get anywhere near as deep in this as I have DDM (3200+ minis and counting), but my wife likes the LoTR ones because they relate to characters she knows. GW makes 2 lines of LOTR minis btw, the tradeable minis that are painted 40mm under thier Sabretooth label, and a whole line of traditional plastic/metal unpainted Warhammer like minis under the GW banner.
