And here was my input for the contest:
“This is.. Difficult to say the least. For me to just select what I think is the Best and what I think is the Worst is unexpectedly hard. Coming from a reviewer standpoint, they all look gorgeous and I would be lucky to own any of them! That being said for the sake of the contest I must select two, so here I go in my selection of Best and Worst.
Worst: For the worst, after flipping through them all multiple times, I will have to select Hatall. The main reason is the structure of the model. The way he is stretching over the base would make it troublesome for storage and the brittle (but amazing) additions would make keeping him whole a tricky task and for my purposes unusable. To go into less structure and more abstract reasoning though I must say I do not like his sword. Something about it unsettles my inner DM about the way he is holding the sword, not to mention the shape of it. The shaft of the blade should not be as thick as it is for a Hilt of that size. Simple as that. Although I can imagine that it is like that to make it less breakable, which is a constant annoyance with miniatures with swords. If I was to make another complaint, and I am awfully good at complaining, I do not like that he is supported on only one foot. Again this would result in him breaking far to easily for my liking.
Now after tearing int Hatall abit, which he still has some good points as well but from what I understood you only wanted the bad, I need to move into what I think is by far the best of this selection of miniatures.
Best: So after flipping through them afew more times I came up with 3 that I absolutely love. The only one I am going to talk about though and proclaim as my personal Favorite and Best of the collection is Greid. Now it may be inner villain coming out but the idea of him as a Minion to a boss, think of him like a sub-boss, is amazing. The smile that is cracked into his mask makes him look like he enjoys his job immensely. Not to mention how stable his miniature is. There are some breakable points on him but he looks like he would take a tumble and survive. Securely connected to the base I would definitely say my players would have a hard time breaking him. Now I am not familiar with the lore of your world and in the past I believe I have browsed you before in miniature shopping but on Greid’s back I do believe those are cannons? That just shouts badass at me, launching cannons into combat as he charges two swords. I could see this small creature (assuming Dwarf by the muscles) charging into combat with his blades. He looks like he has a debt to settle and that makes him place into the best category. I just can not resist a Miniature that looks like it has a story. Doesn’t matter if it does or doesn’t if it just seeping with story telling potential I can not help but place it into the Best category.
I could go on for awhile (my inner reviewer not really letting me stop to easily) but I think I have said enough! Hope this opinion helps a bit and good luck everyone!“
