For years I avoided alternative models like the plague. I wanted to play in GW Grand Tournaments - didn't have the time to paint a lot - and wanted taht time to go towards miniatures I could use in tourneys. Over the years though - GW has ended their tourney hosting and the independents circuit has filled that void. Their restrictions on models are much more lenient and they are open to alternative choices.
So I just managed to get a few of the Scibor and Hi-Tech mini's off ebay. Really impressed with them - a few to show below:
Overall - pretty impressed with them - they are on the level of Forgeworld quality - and similar resin design.
What are your thoughts on using alternative models for 40K? Any problems with it?
