WARHANSA: Fantasy Series

UPDATE 2/25/18:  Morhansa from Warhansa!  They have relased new 5 figure sets of 54mm Asterix the Gaul and post apocalyptic weirdos along with a 4 figure set of 60mm ninjas.  There is also a new bad ass 60mm orc gladiator, and 28mm scale troll that works as a goblin in toy soldier scale. 

Warhansa is a small company that makes truly outstanding figures. They recently made their first 1/32 scale (60mm) fantasy figures, and I hope they make more.  These guys are a barbarian warrior and some kind of non-human assassin.  The detail is excellent. The smaller blue guy is called the Night King and is intended as a very large figure in 28mm scale. He is about 54mm. The figures are made in small batches, so they are kind of expensive, but the quality makes them worth the price.

I asked them to describe their company and this is what they wrote back:  

We are an international team united by passion to toy soldiers. We have been dreaming of making our own minis since childhood. We started our project 3 years ago. Production is based in Russia. We make miniatures according to our taste in relatively small quantities and gladly share them with fellow hobbyists.

SCS DIRECT: Humans v. Aliens

Yet another new set from SCS Direct: Humans v. Aliens.  There are 8 figures each of aliens and human civilians.  All but one of the aliens can be used as fantasy monsters.  The humans are just the type of civilians I have been searching for to use in zombie set ups.  The housefrau ready to do battle with her rolling pin is outstanding.


Love this figure!

More No Name Fun from Russia: Mounted Chaos Knight & Wolf Rider.

The Russians with no name are at it again.  These figures are just weird, and I mean that in the best way possible.  The wolfman rider comes with either a giant gun arm or a crazy techno mace buzz saw arm.  He actually makes a better post-apocalyptic figure than a fantasy figure.  He can be a mutant rather than a werewolf.  I mean no offence to werewolves.  Some of my best friends are werewolves.  The evil knight comes with one and two horned versions of his mount (some of my best friends are also evil knights.)  They size out to about 45mm scale.

DARK ALLIANCE: War Trolls & Fire Demons.

Dark Alliance has an extensive series of 1:72 scale plastic fantasy figures.  They have just released a new set of War Trolls that are about 54mm.  They are intended to be gigantic in 1:72 scale, but make fantastic orcs or ogres in regular toy soldier scale. There are 4 poses and they come 8 to a box.  Made in Ukraine.

UPDATE 12/31/2017:  Dark Alliance has released three more sets of War Trolls and two new sets of Fire Demons.  All of the new figures continue to "borrow" the style of the Peter Jackson LOTR movies.  As with the prior set, the quality of the sculpts is excellent, but the overall production quality is inconsistent.  Some of the Trolls have misaligned bases and the demon wings have pegs intended to fit into holes on their backs, but do not fit well at all.  Still, it only took a little effort to widen the holes and make it work.
