    Great Eagles

    First of all, I apologize if this thread is in a wrong section, but I thought that I could find some help here since GE are an very appreciated by High Elves players.

    I was wondering if anybody had purchased GameZoneMiniature's Great Eagles. I was thinking of getting a pair of them, since they're cheaper than GW's (without shipping, at least) and I do like the poses, but before doing something I might regret, I would like to hear some opinions. Material, pose, dimension, sculpt quality and so on. Any tips would be really appreciated.

    Regards,
    LoreSeeker

    I'm pretty sure GW doesn't like people using things of other companies ( read: DIE NON-GW-MODEL-HERETICS! DIE! ). Either in stores or tournaments. A model must be like 80% GW made.

    Well, I'm not into tournaments. I play at home with some friends, so it really does not matter for us.

    I'm actually looking into buying these myself, together with the fantastic hero model with a phoenix. I think the poses speak for themselves (brilliant in my oppinion), though not having seen one in real life I can't say anything on the quality of the models.

    If you decide to buy, please let me know what you think.

    Yeah, the Eagles' poses are really dinamyc, way cooler than GW's ones IMO. I'm not a great fan of the hero though, looks too much like an elvened-chaos warrior for me.

    I'm still pretty unsure about buying those Eagles, buying them without any infos about them except for those 2-3 images would be quite hazardous I guess. I might even try to write to the company for infos one of these days, another good way for practicing my german Anyways, I'll let you know if I get any useful infos or even the Eagles themselves.

    I agree on the hero, and that's partly why I like him.

    Anyways, best of lucks!

    Mmh...it could be conidered as a pre-Sundering Noble who is part of the Cult of Excess and has had his armour forged in such a way that somehow resembles a chaos armour

    Or just an Elven lord who's a bit untraditional. (Which is the way I'll use him)

    Their beautiful models. I've got a couple on order through our store, but the people they ship through require a "substantial" order before it can be placed, so I've been waiting a while for mine.

    Their perfect scale for the game, and when painted up are just spectacular.
