Tempted to order a set, just to see quality, most of the companies I've seen that do stuf like this is not up to par.

hmmmm interesting! That site seems to have lots of stuff to work with. Cheap too. Might bw worth checking out. Tragic site layout though, dosen't let me open a ton of tabs.

dont; just dont. i know the type of material they use for their products and it turns out it has terrible results in holding details from the molds. if you think GW finecast was bad in the first batch, this stuff's way worse. there's a reason they only use the CAD drawings of the models in the catalogue and none of the actual cast product; the quality is so terrible on average, they cant get a good enough casting even for a single photo. save your cash for the sites that show you the actual casted product, as there's a few of these sites popping up and royally ripping off the customers because the CAD drawings looked great but the actual product was worse than GW and FW's worst castings combined.

I was going to say two things that made me suspicious:
1) All computer drawings, no real pictures.
2) Website's Crappy. (Like... really really bad)

We had a local company bring in some sample they had done. It WAS interesting (they could actually make chains amd stuff sorta like the weird 3d sculptures and whatnot on the site ) but like I said in the intro the quality was way off a GW model.
The only reason I'd even consider it, is, well it's 10 bucks:)
