So, I am an avid 15mm sci-fi guy….per diem 28mm pulp guy….that's been about it for me for a decade almost.

Bored one night I checked out stonehaven miniatures. I thought to myself "what a fantastic world and range they made". They had a sale so….. I did what any self respecting lead addict would do….I bought some.

Very prompt service….nicely packaged. No complaints at all about the webstore, and service…I'd say tip top…..

A little bit of flash and areas that needed cleaning….also no big deal. They prime well…and I used litko bases…

My one gripe is the scale. Just with the half orcs, humans and elves. The gnomes, halflings, and such seem universally the same height….but the humans, elves, and half orcs are varying in height in there respective races. I am new to stonehaven….but was this intentional? I'm ok with that if it is known to be the case. Truly people vary in height.

I have 4 elves, and 4 half orcs…..1 human. Once my recent batch dry from priming I can post a picture.

I gripe slightly, because in 15mm there is so much compatibility among manufacturers…perhaps I come from there looking for that in 28mm?

For example I also bought some bears head miniatures….they seem human to human out of place….when compared except for the female bard.

I know companies make miniatures how they want…. but it's tough to buy other people's things and see they don't line up well.

Ha! My only minor, insignificant gripe with Stonehaven is that their stuff looks a little bit too "fairy tale" for my tastes. No qualms about the scale. It's really nice stuff in general.

Nice stuff…as much as I appreciate North American creations I just can't go $12 USD for a halfling or really anything else. $4 USD-5 seems to be my willingness (high end) to pay lately.

Some nice stuff there. I might pay those prices to get some of the more obscure items, but not for the basic humans, etc.
