One of my favorite new miniatures companies is http://www.antenocitisworkshop.com/ , a small outfit in the UK specializing in high quality terrain bits and vehicles. Lately, they’ve ventured into the 28mm figure range, offering a series of very cool, high-tech infantry for their own gaming universe, Governance of Technology. (or GOT) Here’s some photos of their NRF squad. (New Russian Federation)
While very clean casts with crisp details on par with Infinity figs, these strike me as a bit spindly and, despite the running/shooting poses, somewhat, well… posed. I think it’s a learning curve thing, with each AW figure release subtly gaining a more natural aesthetic, IMO. Regardless of that quibble, I’m very pleased with the miniatures and would say straight off my brushwork doesn’t do them justice. These are sleek, realistic infantry in body-armor and a nice change from the standard fare of clunky, cartoony, neo-Gothic figs. There are eight miniatures per set and they come with two different types of resin scenic bases. If you’re in the US, that alone is worth placing an order from across the Pond.
All in all, hats off the Antenociti’s Workshop. I’m looking forward to more.
I tend to create “Skirmish Groups”, meaning I create small forces of infantry with some type of heavy support and light vehicles. I’ve probably got half a dozen of these little autonomous forces on my shelves in a variety of configurations. For this latest batch, I’ve ordered one of the new Infinity TAG (Jotums) to fill that heavyweight slot, as well as two Nova-Rus Bear jeeps. I’ll post pix once they arrive/get color on them.
