Brueckenkopf is back! This time with a review of the 15mm Leviathan Crusader

Just one day later and Christian over at Brueckenkopf has another review! These guys are animals :) I don't even have one of these painted up yet...
This is the first full review I have seen on the 15mm line. The review kit was graciously provided to Brueckenkopf by Alex of fantasyladen.de 


As per usual a very detailed review. Dennis walks you through the box contents


His build


Doh! A miscast part….

Some fun with range of motion.

Some great paint work.

The ubiquitous comparison shots.

And a wonderful summary and buy recommendation.
So head on over to Brueckenkopf to read the full review and see all 47 photos.

Hats off to Breukenkopf, and Christian for yet another incredible review and to fantasyladen.de for providing the kit. Thank you both!

Brueckenkopf reviews the Eisenkern Stormtroopers

Dennis tears into the Stormtrooper Rifle Squad, the Stormtrooper twenty man box set and the Stormtrooper accessory set. Over at Brueckenkopf.
Many of you may know Brueckenkopf is my frequent stop for non-English news and game reviews. They have been in my links section here on my blog for many years.
Why you may ask?

They give wonderful in-depth reviews of products from various manufactures and some lovely comparison shots of products next to other gaming industry manufacturers so you can compare scale, level of detail and the overall feel of the miniature.
They painstakingly shoot the sprus or kit contents so that you get a first person view of what you will be receiving.
 They build the models and provide commentary on the fit finish and any shortcomings.

They have a very active reader base that comments their feelings or observations in a very open manner, this is really helpful for small companies like mine to get a feel for how our product id being viewed outside the US/UK circle.
Finally, Google translate does an acceptable job at translating German into English, this allows me to review the commentary on all reviews, not just my product and interact with non-English war gamers and fans. 
Now go click the link at the top and see the full review and all 39 pictures :) Well worth the visit!

A big thank you to Bruckenkopf, Dennis and Christian!

Here is a review Dennis provided some time ago on the 28mmLeviathan Crusader:

Eisenkern APC/Gun Carriage Zeus and Loki

Here we have the Eisenkern APC variant Zeus and Loki.
Zeus the god of thunder is a fitting name for the APC equipped with a large caliber siege gun.
The second variant, named after Loki the god of mischief seems equally apropos.

This kit was offered to the Kickstarter backers and I am pleases to say the Loki variant will be included in the Zeus APC kit.

Estimated release Q2 2014


*The crew and spent shell casings were not included in these renders.
