Hi guys

I was approached to enter a painting contest for a new 15mm Fantasy manufacturer, Chronicles of the Wayfarer, I'm not anticipating winning as I think there will be some heavy hitters entering, but I always like supporting new entries into our hobby so agreed, part of the comp is to also write a review of the figures, I will be honest in my review, I was given these 4 figures as part of this comp and have no other incentives or link to this company.
The good as can be seen these are very detailed, actually incredibly detailed figures, I hate to say, but almost to detailed for my skill, have a look at the ladies sward hilt, incredible, they have very good anatomy, nothing seems out of proportion for those that like that, poses are quite good and they came with 2 different detailed base, the guy with the hammer had a choice of sword or hammer arm, and the ladies back thing was separate.

The bad they are resin figures, I prefer metal, they do seem quite sturdy though, but I am imagining some possible breakage during game play.

The ugly These are computer sculpted, and quite a good job to, but for some reason the shields are crazily thick, especially the long body shield, maybe this is due to the moulding process, but isn't mirrored in other parts like the sword, so not sure, I did contemplate cutting them off and sanding them back, but thought its better you see what you will get.

Have added a comparison pic with a rebel, Khurasan and AB figure, all comments welcome.

Very nice figures, but the weapons and shields are crazy big. Can't say I'm into 15mm fantasy (got enough projects on the go as it is) – but I could see these as potentially useful base figures for conversions for gothic sci-fantasy.

These are awesome! They bring back VERY fond memories of Chronopia and times when Fantasy tabletop games were not all GW ripoffs.

When and where can I buy them?

Ask at the Facebook link link I provided.

Thanks.

I tried, but you have to join facebook to send a message, which I'm not willing to. Hope, they create a "real" homepage, soon.

Yeah, I have a facebook page, but never use it.
