I live in Canada and have made 3 purchases from Aventine Miniatures since March 2011. All of the miniatures have been beautifully sculpted. Also, the huge variety of miniatures of the same type (i.e. Triarii, etc.) is amazing. They make fantastic looking wargaming units.
I generally don't like painting up horses, but I found that I enjoyed painting Aventine's horses. I guess that is because the horses are so finely detailed and very lively in their stances.
I just purchased some of Aventine's Successor phalangites and imitation legionaries. I think that the miniatures in my hands actually look better than the photos on Aventine's web site. I am looking forward to painting them. These new miniatures have inspired me to want an Aventine Seleucid wargaming army, so I hope Aventine expands their Successor line.
As you can tell, I'm a huge fan of Aventine Miniatures. Great sculpts, great web site, and great customer service. The prices are reasonable for what you get.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
