Today I want to share a review with you, about two miniatures from ShadowCrafter Miniatures, a small company from Spain.
A while ago I ordered two of their wonderful miniatures: Oromë the forest keeper and the Renaissance Assassin. I really liked the look of the sculpt. While the first is a real traditional fantasy miniature, the other is a quite familiar character to gamers. Both should be real fun to paint 🙂
Before I start the review, I want to mention something sad, but important. After arriving home one day I found the package with the miniatures on my doorstep. Unfortunately there was also a big sandy footprint on top of it. Yes, my stupid housemates stepped on it, at least once, maybe more. Unfortunately the minis are quite damaged because of this. I can fix it, but keep it in mind when you see the pictures. I still wanted to post this review, because I believe ShadowCrafter minis deserve to get some attention 🙂
The minis arrived in a blister package. Good choice, as it is much safer that way.

The mini is made from resin. It is a delicate material, but it does carry the details really well. As you can see from the pictures it is a very clean cast, with hardly any mould lines. There is a bit of flash, but it is superthin, so you can easily remove it with a toothbrush. Clean-up of this mini will be a piece of cake. Nice :). Also assembly should be really easy, the pieces fit well together. The contact areas are really small, so it will require delicate handling. But as the resin is very light it should be ok without pinning.
I am super happy with these miniatures! I think they look excellent, they are unique and of amazing quality. Both cost only 11 Euros, which is incredibly low for such high quality resin miniatures. I cannot wait what is next in store for this company. Really great to see pieces like this. Additionally, I can only be happy with the service of the company. They did not have a card insert for the assassin anymore, so they send me a big card instead. The package was sent fast and communication was clear. Nothing but praise for this ShadowCrafter Miniatures!!
Well I hope you liked this review, and keep a lookout for their miniatures 🙂
