Today I bring you another review about a type of miniature that is close to my heart - Thunder Wolves.
This post shows off the Giant Howling Wolf from Masq-Mini. I bought this miniature from Battlefield Berlin, and I have to say I do not regret it. It costs 22 euros excluding p&p which is an extra expense. So if you are going to buy it, then make sure you make a good sized order to reduce the cost per item for postage.
The miniature came in the box you see in the picture below. The parts were in a plastic bag, but there was no protective foam - which was disappointing. Otherwise the box is quite nice.
The detail, though, is fine and well sculpted. It has a more naturalistic feel to it, which is not surprising for a hand sculpted model. This might contrast negatively with the GW Thunder wolves which have a more stylistic, blocked-out look to them. So if you want this model in your army - then go for a character model.
If on the other hand you are interested in building a squad, then I would think twice. The set from GW is more affordable and has more build options. The Masq-Mini giant wolves can only be assembled in one way. If you don't like a pose - you're stuck with it just the same.
That is all for May, until next month; farewell and god health.
