6 Euro's each? For plastic? I just don't know…

Egads! Nope. But they are pretty.

Thats resin, not plastic.

And to break a lance for VV, their resins are absolutely stunning, comparable in casting quality to eg Dark Sword for metal. Perfect fit, no gaps, flawless sculpting. Second to none.

After buying one set of them I made a habit out of ordering any of their new 28mm releases.

I can only echo Puster's praise. V&V miniatures are excellent sculpts, albeit resin when I would prefer metal, but they are so good that I can happily ignore my resin prejudice.

I don't think that they look any better than the Conquest 28mm Normans.

Resin casting takes MUCH longer than metal casting. But resin costs less than pewter to use, so it should even out a bit. They are nice figures though.

At 6 Euros a pop I can't say I'm overwhelmed.

I do not have them yet, and mounted minis can differ a lot in impression from foot but their vikings and saxons are lightyears ahead from the plastic infantry that you get from a Conquest, Fireforge or Gripping Beast box, or even what you can achieve with a Perry set (and that can be quite impressive).

If you live in Europe fantasywelt.de is a good retailer. Try one of their "four viking" sets if in doubt, you wont regret it.

Imho their Viking 28mm sets are certainly collection rather then gaming quality, and I hope the Normans come along similarly. Imho they are cheap for what you get. If you are just looking for bodies to fill up your units that impression might be different, naturally.

Both riders and horses certainly look realistically proportioned.
