Im guessing most of you already know, or at least heard about Knight Models. They make really collector quality miniatures, and have licenses and produce Marvel miniatures (70mm and busts so far) and Star Wars miniatures (70mm, busts and 30mm). If you never did it before, you might want to check the Knight Models website
because theres really some good stuff in there. Great sculpts, some of the best paintjobs you will ever see done...
Ok, cool, but why am I posting this here in this section will you ask? Well, for some months now, there were rumours about them getting some other licenses... DC was the one everyone was betting on... and it seems the guesses were right. Makes total sense, considering what they already are doing... great news, but not really a surprise for anyone I'd say.
There was also discussion about another license, or licenses... including Dragon Ball and LOTR. I have no idea about Dragon Ball, but it seems that they now do, indeed, have the license to produce 70mm LOTR minis. They presented some first peeks for both DC and LOTR stuff in an exhibit in Leganes, Spain.
There are no official pictures or information from Knight Models yet, or at least I didnt found any, but you can check a picture that paloji
took and posted in the Spanish Team Forums
(just follow this link). Theres a really nice Superman, a Robin sculpt in progress, a stunning Joker and... BOROMIR!
I for one, am really excited for these. Really curious to see what these guys will do with this license and most definetelly will buy more than one!
