Rotten Tomatoes: Miniatures Review of Squig-like Things

Been awhile since I reviewed some miniatures, so here we go!

Recently I stumbled across some 'not-squigs' on Ebay when I was looking for some Squigs for a project.

These were called 'Demonic Tomatoes' which is hard to resist right there.

This is a set of 7 alien beasties, much like GW squigs: same scale and size.

Priced at $25.50 with $5.50 shipping,which seemed reasonable shipping since they were coming from Russia.

Each one is unique (no duplicate sculpts).  No bases are supplied, but that isn't much of a problem for most gamers: we tend to have a lot of extra bases around.

The sculpting is good, and anatomically correct: they have both a mouth and the opposite opening... don't ask where ketchup comes from!

Casting is in resin and is smooth with only a few minor bubbles.

If you're in the market for more squigs and want variety, these should add to your collection nicely.

I found them on this Ebay store, though at the moment looks like there are none for sale there now- but there might be more in the future: http://stores.ebay.com/bdstd-miniature

Here they are:

The one in the bottom right is in 2 pieces, his mouth goes all the way around, so you can position the head in any way you like, he has 3 eyes in the front and one in the back.
