The Little Vampire


These last few weeks have been very busy IRL so very little has been painted. I did however manage to whip this up the other day.

This is also another one for the leadadventureforums modern fantasy painting party.

 

The little vampire. aka Vampire Halfling from Kings of War: Vanguard’s Undead Warband Booster, by Mantic Games. Off to count some blood sausages. Or maybe slurp some black pudding. Oh, how he longs to again be able to have some hot cross buns…but they burn so…

 

For some reason my camera did not want to focus properly on the face.

 

 

Printlines!? Printlines?!

What is it with premium resin minis and what looks suspiciously like printlines? Has someone failed at the clean-up-of-the-master-print-stage or is it something else that makes such lines a thing? Has someone rushed and cut corners? Why would you release a premium resin model like this?

You can say a lot about Mantic starting out with cheap, “no brand” minis, but that is simply no longer true. Single, normal size resin models clock in at the €10-15 range retail price, the four model booster is a £30 / €40 / $45 box. That is premium pricing. Well, maybe at the lower end of premium but still, premium pricing.

When they charge a premium price, I expect a premium product. Print lines = sloppy quality control. = not premium.

Apart from the print lines on the cape, it is a good mini. I cannot abide the square bases they use for Vanguard, so I printed a 25mm round for it.
