Avatars of War facebook page.
I was a big fan of Avatars of War, I bought and painted up their plastic dwarf berserkers (shown here) and have several of the metal figures in various armies. I pledged to their indiegogo campaign too, though only in a small way - the army standard bearer. But that's when things started to sour a little, as delays and lack of updates plagued the project. Reading between the lines, I guess they had some real production problems casting up their sets in the new wonder material, plastic resin, which was obviously cheaper to start up with than plastic injection moulding, but has cost them many problems in the longer term.
I much prefer plastic to restic, so am tempted by these new boxsets, but find myself with a little dilemma. I don't play warhammer much these days, but these figures are really nice. Should I buy them and hope that I can resurrect my interest in the game (or find a decent alternative), or should I continue to explore new gaming systems like Saga, Lord of the Rings, et al? I prefer other gaming systems to warhammer, but I still love the fantasy genre minis best of all and get most enjoyment out of painting them.
