There's a difference between buying chinese recasts because they're cheaper and buying boutique resin sculpts because they're better. Wargame Exclusive is very obviously in the latter category, mmkay?
Never bought that stuff. But it doesn’t look that good to be. Some of the poses are ropey and the details don’t look that crisp. For superior quality boutique stuff I would look at artel W. There stuff is amazing quality. This all looks meh to me.
Just had my first orders of both WE
and Artel arrive, and first impression is that yeah, Artel has a slight edge in quality, but the WE
models are very nice and hold detail well with little cleanup or pre-work required. In fact, of the two, Artel was the only order that has an issue worth sending an email over (bent sword with bubble preventing straightening).
So I would definitely classify WE
as boutique, and to me worth the price.
I got my first order of WE
for christmas, wasn't expecting much quality wise, just some fun minis to break up a bit my army painting schedule. I was amazed by their quality, no air bubbles, almost no flash or mold lines, easy to put togetether, much better quality than Forge World for a fraction of the price. Sculpt wise I am not a fan of all of their sculpts but some of them, their not-Tau for exampe, have some gorgeous, full of character sculpts.
