Living Dead Warriors Review – Fireforge Games

Quite a while back, Fireforge Games sent me a number of 28mm miniatures to check out. Among them, was a boxed set of their Living Dead Warriors for Forgotten World. Today, I take a look at those models.

So, what is in this box? How do these models build? How do they compare to other figures? Join me in this Living Dead Warriors Review to find out.

Special thanks goes to Fireforge Games for sending along these minis for me to review.

And I built the second half as spear warriors.

The miniatures come with both square and round bases. I chose to place them on rounds because I like rounds best for my miniature agnostic games. Forgotten World by Fireforge Games has rules for both. They use the rounds for the Skirmish style of their game and squares for the rank and file. They encourage you to collect and use both styles of bases with their figures.

The Sprues

Each box comes with enough plastic parts to make 12 miniatures with multiple options. You can see above that the hand weapons come in a variety of options and not just straight up swords.

So, what comes in the box? Two frames of body sprues, two sprues of heads, and bases in both round and square styles. Below are pictures of the plastic figure frames from the box.

And the Heads…

Overall, there are a lot of options here. Below are all of the bits that I had leftover for my bitzbox.

Above is what I had left from the sprues after building my 12 miniatures. If you want, you can make all twelve miniatures holding on to their spears with two hands. You can also choose to build all of your minis as carrying either a spear or hand weapon in one hand and a shield in the other. Basically, you can arm all of your 12 miniatures in the same way if you wish.

Now, I will mention that I am really not a fan of how the two handed spears go together. If you look at the four spears at the top, you can see the spears with the molded hands and the separate arms to left. Not the worse thing and other companies do the same. I just find them harder to build than the other options.

A Closer Look at the Miniatures

The Hand Weapon Group

Now, let’s take a closer look at the miniatures. These are the ones I armed with hand weapons and shields.

A look at the full group. Now let’s focus in on each figure.
Undead Soldier carrying his own head - 28mm miniature
Okay, I didn’t give this guy a shield. He is too busy carrying his head.
28mm Undead Warrior Miniature - Zombie Warrior
An ax armed undead warrior. You can tell he is a Zombie by how messed up his feet are. That’s not natural!
Living Dead Warrior - 28mm Fantasy Zombie Warrior
I really like the character depicted in this figure. Turned out great. Wonder how well it will look once it is painted.
Undead Warrior Champion
As far as I am concerned, this is the group’s leader or champion. He looks great.
Musician
I made this guy as the groups musician and strapped a shield to his back.

The Spear Armed Group

To make him the same as the others, I strapped a shield to his back. They are all armed with Spears and Shields in this group.

Another great looking spear-man mini. These spear-men all turned out really well!

Another undead Zombie Warrior. Just awesome!

I think this guy is the group’s leader. They all look so good to me. I like them!

There is one more spear-warrior in this group to round the number up to 6, but that picture did not turn out as well as the others. You can still see him as the second two handed spear wielder in the group photo above. Overall, a great set of miniatures and I am excited to put some paint on them.

Scale Comparison

As with all of my full reviews, I like to include scale comparison pictures. This is so that you the reader can decide if these are figures that you want to add to your current collections. So far, I think they look great, and I really like them as spear and shield infantry.

A look at the figures compared to Frostgrave miniatures by North Star Military Figures. You can see these undead warriors are slightly taller.
Scale Comparison - Fireforge Games vs Reaper Miniatures vs Mantic Games
Comparing the figures to Reaper Miniatures (on the left) and Mantic Games (on the right). To me, they seem almost at par with that reaper miniature. This means that they might be slightly taller than other 28mm ranges, but they still look good alongside them. 

Wrapping it up…

Hopefully you found this Living Dead Warriors review informative. The aim of my reviews is to let you know what you are getting. I do not give ratings. Instead, I offer my thoughts on the product, lots of images of what the product is, and include scale comparison pictures too. I figure you can decide for yourself what you think of the miniatures.

Overall, I really like these miniatures. They look cool and scale nicely to other parts in my collection. I like that they have a sturdy feel in their appearance and that they go together pretty well. I am not a fan of the two handed spears, but that is just my personal taste. Others will agree or disagree with my preference.

Special thanks goes out again to Fireforge Games for sending me this product to review.

Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
