Westfalia Miniatures Review and Preview
Westfalia Miniatures recently sent me a sampling of figures to take a look at. You may have caught a glimpse of them in my Six Squared Studios MDF Bases review. In this post, I take a deeper look at those models. Join me in this Westfalia Miniatures Review post to take a closer look at those miniatures.
This is not the first time that I came across Westfalia Miniatures. When I first wrote about them, I took a look at their upcoming miniatures with a likeness to the Tiger King / Joe Exotic.
At that time, they planned to sell these miniatures as part of a D&D adventure kit. Right now, it looks like there may be plans to release them individually as well. The Rakshasa King has a page dedicated to the individual models in both human and tiger form.
Likewise, the preview products that they sent me for review all have their own pages that I will link to too. Given that these are preview miniatures, they are not available for sale yet. That said, keep your eyes on these pages and you can scoop them up when the products go live. The links will also help those visiting the site in the future.
As a note, the miniatures are cast to be in line with 32mm miniatures. I have scale comparison pictures at the end of the article.
Now, let’s get into the Westfalia Miniatures review.
For the sake of full disclosure, Westfalia Miniatures sent me five preview miniatures as samples for review. You can’t buy these yet, but I anticipate that they will be available on the market later in 2020.
As mentioned earlier, you may have caught a glimpse of them in my Six Squared Studios MDF Bases review. The miniatures come without bases. Westfalia Miniatures no longer supplies bases because they found that most people had their own ideas on how to make the figures fit their collection. Makes sense to me.
Assembling Westfalia Miniatures
Westfalia Miniatures are made out of a resin material. The details are extremely crisp and I used superglue to paste them together.
Four of the five miniatures sent to me came as multi-piece resin models. One of them is a single piece miniature. The Kathja Female Catling Bard came with the most pieces in this group – four.
I broke the bow for the violin on the Kathja model while building it. I applied too much for bending it how I wanted it to go against the musical instrument. To fix the issue, I applied a little bit of extra super glue.
Kathja the Female Catling Bard
This miniature looks awesome. I am not a cat person, but I can really appreciate the details on Kathja the Female Catling Bard miniature. Check out these pictures.
Captain Crow the Male Vampire
The Captain Crow the Male Vampire figure by Westfalia Miniatures I really like. This guy will certainly be making it into my undead army!
Coco the Female Human Barbarian
Another great miniature. Check this lady out! This is Coco the Female Human Barbarian. She would be great for any Fantasy Role Playing Game, but she will likely be making it into my collection as a Frostgrave Soldier.
Grandfather Bullrog the Male Human Barbarian
If you are looking for a variety of miniatures suitable for character miniatures in Dungeons and Dragons (or Pathfinder), Westfalia Miniatures has a lot of options. These figures would also work well in skirmish miniatures games like Frostgrave. Meet Grandfather Bullrog the Male Human Barbarian.
Gordon Rumsley the Male Klabooter
The Male Klabooter is actually a creature miniature for 5th Edition. He is basically a two to three foot tall creature that looks like an old blind man or a lich. They like the sea and are often found around ports and large ships. This is Gordon Rumsley the Male Klabooter.
Scale Comparison Images
The above five miniatures showcase what Westfalia Miniatures sent to Must Contain Minis for review. I was very impressed with the crispness of the miniatures and how little flashing was on the models.
One of the things that I really like to include in my reviews are scale comparison images. This is so you can determine whether the models might fit your collection. Below are the Westfalia Miniatures figures compared to other companies.
The miniatures scale nicely with figures 28mm to 32mm. That said, they are closest in size to the 32mm Reaper miniatures but their weapons are less “heroic” (chunky).
Wrapping it up…
There you have it. My Westfalia Miniatures Review of five preview miniatures sent to me by Westfalia Miniatures. I would like to take a moment to thank Westfalia Miniatures for sending the figures to Must Contain Minis.
The resin was fairly easy to work with and not as hard as some of the other figures I have tried by other companies. That said, they are not as soft or easy to cut through as Fireforge Games Resin Models. Overall, I really like the figures and was impressed with the crispness of the models.
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
