Worst miniatures ever made

Postby mahon » 31 Oct 2011, o 15:53

I believe many of you have your own candidates, and even now a few manufacturers keep trying to make the worst miniature in history.

Feel free to post pictures of the worst/silliest/ugliest/etc. miniatures ever made and officially released*.
And if you explain your choice - it's even better.

Yes, be subjective, be biased, be sentimental, be nostalgic. Show no respect!** :twisted:

The only rule: don't post THE MINI, we already know many of you don't like it. we're looking for alternatives ;) It would be boring to see it over and over again...

Now you can leave your votes here: 25 worst miniatures ever made. Choose 3 candidates and vote for them!

Candidate #1: NAGASH [Games Workshop]

Do I really need to explain it? Doesn't it look like a badly-proportioned rubber toy to you? Surely not like the master of undead....
And no, it's not because it's an oldschool mini - much better models were made at that time, too.

Plus compare it to the artwork:

now it's your turn...

* I know one unreleased model slipped through, but now we don't want any more of them.
** Just for people who didn't notice the unseriousness of this thread - no, we're not trying to be objective or serious about it. it's a tongue in a cheek list.

Oh my, it's definitely a good candidate. Must me one of all time favorites!

I can spot good attention given to orc anatomy details :oops:

No surprise the manufacturer is unknown. I wouldn't like to be known for producing such a thing... :lol:
