Hi Guys

Is anyone familiar with Hi Tech Miniatures?

I was fancying these: http://hitechminiatures.com/2_4/product/info/141

as alternative Obliterators, but wanted to know if anyone had any experience with the company?


Is the scale alright, whats the quality of their molds.. will 42mm fit on the Terminator base etc?

Any thoughts?

They look more like Servitors to me. But anything is better than the current Obliterator model. Have you looked at their Terrorizers? http://hitechminiatures.com/null/product/info/122

As to the company, I've got an Archdiare Micheal as a Space Marine commander. The model itself is quite nice, to scale with a Marine in Terminator armor, and his arms were easily magnetized to make transport easier. http://hitechminiatures.com/2_5/product/info/51

I have one of those (a different pattern, though). It fits on the 40mm base (barely) but it's propably not as high as the Obliterators (I guess - don't have any). The quality isn't ground-breaking - lots of little bubbles here and there - though that may be not the case for all their stuff, I also have some bases from them and these are fine. Detail varies.

Hi Tech stuff looks really cool, I'm sure people wouldn't have an issue with you using those (although I would use the terrorisers personally).

I see the case for Terrorizers

Just wanted to consider an alternative approach as long as I was already considering proxies.

Thanks fer the feedback

I really hope this thread goes somewhere. I've just been using my friend's Obliterators because I hate the models and don't want to buy them, and most of the others (like the Terrorizers above) are still too fleshy for my taste.

Think I'm gonna buy two of those and raid my bitz to bulk them up on chests where they lack a bit.

I'm getting pretty set on avoiding Obliterators looking like fleshy Termnators..


Maybe I should post pics when I get round to it..

I dont think it looks like a servitor but more like Mechanicus army battle magi or skittari something along this lines. The model of the body is too detailed, and he is wearing a robe.... just saying.
I think terrorrizers look perfect to be used as obliterators =). Same bulky feel, looks like they are wearing custom tda armour which is perfect i think since they have 2+/5++ and mainly weapons for hands.
