    I tend to go with gamezone or reaper, they both have a wealth of really good vampires and undead pieces, especially the zombie wolves.

    You know, maybe if they had someone smart in charge of public relations and etc for games workshop, they would collaborate with these companies and make some ridiculously awesome minis.

    There's another thread devoted to them, but adding for reference: Mantic Games make a range of 25mm Undead at between a third and half the price of GW equivalents. Range currently expanding. One to watch.

    While surfing the worldwide web mainly because I can't be bothered to do my essay, I came across this website for a conversion service for all of us out there who aren't much kop at creating and converting our own unique individual characters or units.
    A lot of the stuff they are showing on the site seems very impressive and although I haven't got them to do any modelling for me I thought this is a site that can't just be lost to the endless pages of google sites

    http://www.the2blackdragons.com/english/hauptseiten/black_dragons_english.htm

    If anyone does ever use this site in the future please post pics of the sort of things they do
    Enjoy

    How come I've never seen this thread before? It's the sort of thing I've been looking for for ages... xD

    All very helpful, now I can comb my way through all the sites to find the ultimate Vampire miniature...

    good thread, couple of interesting links that I didnt know before. Cheers!
    Oh and by the way- Pendraken does 10mm scale suitable for warmaster, not 15mm ;)

    Avatars of War don't seem to be on here. Which they should be. They make very pretty characters. Sadly only two undead characters (a vampiress and a necromancer), but they're very nice ones and they have lovely dark elves and other things. And if you're thinking of getting into dwarfs, they're about to make quite a large range of them (currently, only plastic slayers are available).

    Anyone know specifically where I can get hold of a very feral looking vampire. Not strigoi feral, just brutal looking, the kind of vampire that prefers to tear his goes heart out with his bare hands. Not his sword.

    Besides, are there alternative models to the Cursed Company and Mordheim Undead? In effect non-Human Undead?

    @Karak Norn Clansman I've managed a decent number of undead dwarves from various places. The Cursed Company guy, Stonehaven Miniatures, an old Citadel zombie dwarf for Mordheim, Mantic's new board game is coming with some undead dwarves, and Meiko has a cool zombie Slayer with mohawk and all. Elfball has some cool halfling zombies as well.

    Are you KNC from warseer? Your Chaos Dwarves are dope.

    @Adam_Barrow: Thank you! That's a lot more than I thought there would be. I and my brother will be most grateful when we expand the zombie hordes.

    And yup, I'm KNC from Warseer. Thanks!

    @Karak Norn Clansman You came to the right place. And post pics when you get the project started. I dig the work I've seen from you already. Good luck!

    Black tree design does quite a nice range of undead.

    They also have regular sales, so there's always a chance of picking things up cheaply!

    http://www.creaturecaster.com/. This guy just had his kick starter and will be making more miniatures soon. Check out this Zombie Dragon. He is sold out but will be ready for retail in a few months.
