I have had my eye on the complete line of Relic miniatures for quite some time now, but I have only recently placed on order for some of these gorgeous figures. With my Carthaginian army progressing nicely (the heavy cavalry should be done soon), I needed to get some more models onto my worktable to paint and so I pulled the trigger on some Ligurian slingers. My intent is to begin to flush out some of the allies of Carthage and this will allow me to add some light skirmishers to the force.
The miniatures arrived just five days after I ordered them, which was a very pleasant surprise since I have become accustomed to waiting for three to four weeks for orders shipped from England (Relic Miniatures is located in Canada). The figures were very carefully and professionally packaged.
These figures are stunning, well sculpted, and full of great detail (even for bearded guys in simple tunics). There is very little flash that needs to be removed and there are absolutely no flaws or casting errors. They feel lighter than other miniatures that I am used to holding, which may be do to their overall slenderness or it may be because of the alloy used in the casting. The proportions of the figures are excellent.
The price of the Relic miniatures is not insignificant - these slingers cost about $2.00 per model, but for now I am happy that I have them in my hand and there is a very high probability that I will be ordering more of their products in the very near future.
