It's not. I've seen them in the stores and I am not impressed. While there metal line was beautiful, their pre-paints are pretty bland. I don't like the size of the minis, nor the paint job. I'm pretty sure what you see on their website is the pre-painted mini painted up by their painting department.

Basically Rackham had Confrontation miniatures for their game of the same name and they were epically painted metal models. However, making the most stupid move of their company's life they decided to turn it all pre-painted. In a single motion almost worldwide gamers stopped playing the game because Rackham screwed their customer base outright by providing crappy prepainted mini's, not even well painted pre-painted mini's. You can still get thier metal miniatures apparently but at the original store prices or more(?) now and they fall udner the Confronmtation Classics Range. Alternatively, look for the original suppliers to each country et al and see if they have anything left for sale. The Tin Soldier in Sydney (Australia) still has a very limited selection of the metal mini's left all at 50% off the marked price...

Hope this helps,

Ram.

THE TIMES THEY ARE A'CHANGING thumbsup

Jean Bey, the former head honcho at Rackham, had an announcement over on the Wyrd Forum about the company's bankruptcy case. They are now owned by a new firm, & Jean will be the creative director. From the new releases there seems to be a return to producing their lovely metal minis, at least, for the fantasy range. COOL, huh!? Suspect

I'm thrilled - Rackham figs are (in my opinion) some of the finest sculpts table-top gaming has to offer. A small part of me died when they went to pre-paints, and I pee myself a little every time they release a new metal for their Legends line.

Thanks for that, Deaf!

Lol, I recently bought a lot of cheap Rackham models, because, they looked fun (lots of stuff which GW doesn't have, and I love those Wolf guys), and the store where I usually buy my GW, had a major discount on all Rackham, they aren't gonna sell it anymore, since noone plays it any more (because of the pre-painted change).
Anyway, this may not be exactly on topic, but this was just something I wanted to share clown
