www.black-tree-design.com Just happened upon this site. I can definitely tell that some of these minis are GW products, bust some others look original. Go to catalogue..ratmen.

Some of the minis they have are pretty cool. I love some of the goblins the sell. May have to add them to my NG warband.

I recently bought some of their products (Dungeon Accessories), while not the best sculpts I've ever seen. For example, the victim on the sacrificial altar looked like a blow-up doll :O .
But for the price I paid I can't really complain. Got me some great inquisition type figures that went quiet well with the Possessed brethren from Mordheim thumbsup

www.heresyminiatures.com/hv024.htm yeah they are not exceptionally detailed, but better than some ive seen. If you have ghouls in your band or just like looking at some sweet sculture/painting.. check the above link out.

Ooh Heresey. Been drooling over those for quite some time. Haven't found a shop around here that sells them tho. Probably a conspiracy against me.

I may be wrong but the guy who sculpted the ghouls, Paul Muller, used to work for Citadel or GW. One of them.

If he did, it's a shame he didn't design their undead...

Yes, he did. He sculpted their metal ghouls from an edition or two ago. He's now freelancing and has done work for Heresy, Otherworld Miniatures and others.

It's just weird that they produce so much better quality on their own (Black Scorpion's pirates, the Heresy ghouls, etc.)
