Anyone seen Nolzur miniatures

Postby ZorroGames » Sat Apr 01, 2017 2:21 pm

Apparently an alternative or competition to Reaper Bones.

Saw a video but I have some concerns of durability of the product. Anyone bought and played with these figures. Painting always looks nice but having played since the days of lead bayonets I an always torn between "no 50 pound swords/axes" and warriors using "only hilts, no blades" in games because they broke mid-game.
Gracias,

Glenn

Well, for $3.59 (MiniatureMarket) for a pack of 2 man sized, 3 smaller or 1 large monster it is worth it to me to buy a couple of packs and check them out. I love the old D&D style, especially the troll. I'll grab some for sure next month when I get paid. Thanks for the heads up.

They look good. I'm too busy painting for Bayou Wars to play with them now, but they're definitely on the list.

Those minis are really nice looking. The price is good. The only downside to them is that they're primed with Vallejo primer. I'd much rather they were un-primed, so that I could prime them with a better, more durable, primer.

Never used Vallejo primer, but I love their paints. The VMC and VGC lines are great and I have heard good things about Vallejo Air. What is wrong with the primer? Does it not adhere well to the material? Is it too coarse?

The thing I do not like is that they are primed with the molding lines still on. I hate mold lines on my models with a burning passion, and the difficulty of removing them on Bones models is what turned me off to that material.

I've never had any luck with Vallejo paints on gaming miniatures. Vallejo paints just don't stand up to handling when used on game pieces. They have great colors, but poor durability. I only use Vallejo paints on static display models.


Also, I too, prefer to remove the mold lines from a mini before priming it. I won't waste money on a bottle of Vallejo primer to re-prime the area that I have just trimmed the mold lines from.
