They don't look bad at all, but it would be nice to see printed versions rather than renders.

Depending on where you are check Etsy and eBay - licensed resellers usually sell them there.
I've not bought this particular company but others are pretty close to the render.

Remember, the broad, short, beaded axe-wielding Easterling were described as a type never encountered before.

So where the majority of the Easterlings I'd use Steppe people figures to represent, this other group is a whole new debate.

Many, many moons ago, I did the concept work for the Lord of the Rings range by Harlequin Miniatures. These were my ideas for the new Axe Easterlings.

Unfortunately, that company rarely paid designers properly, so although the ideas were there, they are quite poorly sculpted figures. Even though I did the concepts, I was too disappointed to collect the figures themselves.

Wow! Nick, even though the minis themselves don’t really take me, the idea behind them is visible and very much in keeping with the books. Smaller axes, more realistic proportions and they would be pretty cool!
