Greetings all.

I am very interested in starting up a warmaster army but I hate how all armies basic troops are all metal (i.e paint chips, bending) I'm fine with the more specialised stuff being metal but with troops I would like to use plastic variations.
I am looking to do either an empire or Highelf army.

Can anyone help me find a manufacturer who makes plastic 10mm scale fantasy mini's (Or at least medieval human mini's)?

cheers.

I believe you'll have to "scale up" if you want plastic. Gripping Beast and Wargames Factory might be a good start. If you wish to stick with 10mm, then metal it is.

The only thing I can think of is the Battle of 5 Armies set that GW sells. I think those are in plastic. But they give you little to begin a high elf or an empire army, and an entire box costs a lot if you have no use for over 75% of it.

So yeah, I don't think there are that many plastic kits around for 10mm miniatures. But like every other games Warmaster can be played with anything you want if you have a bit of imagination and some enthusiast friends :)

(Is copplestone castings selling plastic stuff by the way ? If so, you might have something to begin with with their "10 mm fantasy" which really is 10mm LoTR in disguise. Their humans don't look empire enough, but they're humans, so you already have that. )

I would recommend the BOFA box set.
You get a decent pair of hills for your terrain setup.
A good start on 4 armies and a good alternate ruleset from GW.

I used all 4 armies to start alt/trial armies off.
If you are only interested in 2 then use the others to trade :)
