Anvil Industries Review

So for those of you who haven't seen, Anvil Industries are a small company making resin minis and conversion bits. While these arent listed as 'games workshop' compatible. The marine size ones are a excellent fit for marine models. The following bits ive used are the bionic arms, legs and chainswords. There are a host of other bits but ill leave a link for you to all look at!

The Bits -

I have to say that the quality of casting from Anvil Industries is second to none. There are hardly any model lines and no bubbles at all. Kromlech are the only other company ive seen with this quality of casting. Certainly puts forgeworld to shame, but thats what you get for going mass production on resin. The legs either come in a pack of 5 or you can buy the multi part legs which come in 2's. The only issue i have is repeating of poses but you get that with anything.

Marines -

So here are some pics of the bionic legs on a marine torso for size comparison. The only problem i had was that the ball joint is perhaps slightly too big and the resin doesn't take to super glue very well. That really the only downside i can say, otherwise really nice parts and go very well with my Iron Hand marines!

Pricing and Shipping -

Pricing is quite reasonable for some top quality bits and it was £4 for the legs and £2.25 for the multi part legs (this is only one set of legs with different thighs) and £3.50 for the arms. I had alittle issue with a torso being missing. But uber customer service from Joel there has sent me a replacement out in no time! So overall im very happy with the quality and pricing!

I do recommend if your after any aftermarket bits. Plus there are loads of gun conversions and other bits of bionics for other models.
