PUBLIUS: Dwarves

Publius is a Russian company that makes very high quality, and costly, figures on par with anything else available.  These five dwarves are the first fantasy figures from this company (at least that I know of).  The big (Dwarf King?) warrior is standing on some rocks which make him 58mm.  That is kind of tall for a dwarf.  

The other guys look like thieves to me, or am I just profiling? Who else walks around with a lantern and a hand axe?   I'm not saying that all dwarfs are criminals.  I'm not saying that I would pick up any of these guys hitchhiking at night either.  Some of those Lord of the Rings guys were cool.  These suckers on the other hand are the old school Norse legends kind of dwarves .  .  .  violent, devious bastards.

  1. Too big for dwarfs - would use 'em for regular blokes - Vikings etc.

  2. Funny you post this - I have the chap on the left on order as we speak. Love the quality of the sculpts, but they do come with a price tag...

    How is the plastic?

    2. The plastic is good as far as I can tell.

    3. Just received mine. This is one of the best fantasy figures I've seen - an absolutely stunning sculpt. I hope this company comes out with more fantasy in the future! And the plastic feels great.

      Guessing here, but I wonder if these were sculpted by the same fellow that did the Warhansa 28mm troll. The styles seem similar to me.

  3. I agree about the sculps, but I wish they did not put them on raised bases. The would be better at around 40mm. Interesting guess about the sculptor.
