So I already have two Warmaster armies, Empire and Vampire Counts but I'd love to add some additional forces to the collection. When GW stopped selling 10mm figs I thought my dream had died but I recently discovered alternative manufactured and I'm looking for opinions on what would be the best way to go in terms of quality of sculpts and a match to the existing GW figs.

Pendraken (http://www.pendraken.co.uk/Fantasy-c21/) has by far the largest selection, but their website doesn't show all of the figs (I'm interested in Dark Elves, Dwarfs, Skaven, and Bretonian). Can anyone offer any opinions or pictures of their figs? How do they compare in terms of scale and quality to the GW warmaster figs.

Same questions for Magister Militum (http://www.magistermilitum.com/) and Copplestone Castings (http://www.copplestonecastings.co.uk/range.php?range=FAN)

I'm not too familiar with those companies, except that Copplestone Casting has an excellent reputation (I plan on getting Wood Elf proxies from them eventually).

You may also want to check out Eureka Minitaures (http://www.eurekamin.com.au/) and Polar Fox Studios (http://www.polarfox.info/)

I've got some models from Eureka, and find them quite good (though need converting to match the GW style). Polar Fox models have a lot of reviews- Lex does a pretty in depth one over on the Specialist Arms forum- all word on them is very positive so far.

Also there's http://www.kallistra.co.uk/, who do a massive range of historical/fantasy 10mm (although they are on the large side of 10mm, more 11-12mm, as long as the majority of the army is made up of their models nothing looks "off"). They also do a fantastic range of terrain.

Why did GW kill warmaster, I've never played it but I understand it was one of the well designed games?

Because the manufacturing and retail capacity could be more profitably used in making Warhammer and 40ki minis, like all the other Specialist Games.

A pity, because Warmaster's brilliant. If you've got a big enough table, I'd recommend using those rules with 28mm minis instead of WFB.

Does anyone know of anyone making 10mm or 6mm figures in plastic or resin that could be used for Warmaster? I'm really not keen on metal.

I have wondered this for ages but, alas, the conclusion I have drawn from my searches is "no".

I've heard of recasters making resin versions of GW stuff- if you ask around on the Specialist Arms forum you may find something. Other than that, the only plastic Warmaster troops I know of are from the Battle of Five Armies boxed game (which was Warmaster- maybe Warmaster v1.5). BoFA had some nice models, but unfortunately I don't think it was ever advertised- I only found it on the GW site by accident one day, and it was canned soon after. You can find the models through trades and on eBay, but (on eBay at least) they can be very expensive.
