Here is an ongoing list of FANTASY miniature producers that I hope should be useful. Historical list to come!
https://diehardminiatures.com – An excellent selection of fantasy and science fiction miniatures. The best way to describe them would be ‘premium quality old-school aesthetic’. The certainly give off the vibe of late 80s Citadel and old Metal Magic miniatures – but more modern in terms of quality and pose.
http://www.cpmodelsminiatures.co.uk/index.htm – a very varied selection of weird and wonderful – their Night Terrors are especially cool. Every time I have ordered here – they have thrown in a free miniature! (Probably depends on size of order – I can’t guarantee this!).
http://www.midlamminiatures.co.uk – lovely selection of roleplaying-style adventurers and lots more.
http://www.rapierminiatures.co.uk – a wonderfully quirky selection of miniatures – witches, familiars…. and soon some miniatures sculpted by me!
http://www.hfminis.co.uk – Some of the best sculpts around – especially fantastic ‘sky-clad’ miniatures. Kev White is a master of human anatomy!
http://knightmareminiatures.com – The Pantheon of Chaos and Greenskin Wars guys – amazing sculpts in the style of the late 80s / early 90s…. but better. Sculpters include Kev Adams (doing some of his best work ever in my opinion), Diego Serrate and Tim Prow.
http://www.ntseshop.co.uk – Quirky, wonderful – a touch of Jim Henson… with a hint of fairy tale…
http://fenrisgames.com Loads to look at here including imported ‘Bronze Age Miniatures’ and ‘Darkling Games Miniatures’.
http://www.ralparthaeurope.co.uk/shop/ – huge selection of wonderful old-school miniatures. Need nice metal wolves? A bag of skulls? A Jabberwock? You can spend hours browsing here
http://www.wargamesfoundry.com – Mostly historical miniatures – but with lots of useful miniatures for fantasy games nonetheless. Beasts of burden, ex-citadel miniatures etc…
https://www.castingroomminiatures.com – an offshoot of Wargames Foundry.
http://otherworldminiatures.co.uk A large range of D&D inspired miniatures. Also have their own skirmish/dungeon-crawl ruleset – ‘Otherworld Fantasy Skirmish’.
https://www.essexminiatures.co.uk The fantasy section at Essex Miniatures is full of Bob Olley goodness. I just love those overly large heads…
http://www.grim-forge.com/ A mix of miniatures that have an old-school vibe – and lots that don’t.
https://thelittlesoldiercompany.co.uk/ Official Noggin the Nog miniatures and lovely lizardy-frog-overlord, obviously not to be confused with Slaan miniatures. Shame they don’t have a warband deal for those hoppy fellows..
http://zealotminiatures.com/ Some overly modern looking stuff – but some timeless gems in here too. Mostly resin by the looks of it… (booooo hisssss) – but with loads of very tempting models and dungeon bits and pieces…
https://barbaricsplendor.com/ Great old-school barbarian sculpts. Especially worth checking out are the ‘barbarian personalities of note’.
