They're a really cool niche manufacturer - they mainly make models for Blood Bowl / Pirates (including pirate orcs/goblins) / "Tombstone" - their wild west range.
However, they've just announced this:
The Salute show in London is on April 6th, as always we'll be there with new releases available early! This year we have a number of new Pirate characters, a limited salute model like every year and some test figures from a new range we're starting! The range titled 'Breninmoor' will feature medieval-fantasy style models, the first pack (mercenaries) and character models will be available at Salute. Our new releases often sell out at Salute so try to come by early to get what you want (we don't take pre orders due to demand).
Here's all the new models- (to be released online in the coming months)
The Grandmaster of the Knights Citadel.
I'll post a few of their random pirates, old and new, in case others like that range:
I would much prefer to see Norba pursue their own aesthetic. The Chaos Dwarf miniatures they did after their own style, were aiming in the right direction. It's redundant and a bit wasted creative work to mimic someone else's style that much. :/
Since GW blew up the Old World and it spunoff a ton of start-up mini companies, it seems as though the real test for them has had to do with production problems, shipping, quality manufacturing, customer communication, and turn around time. These seem to be the crux that makes or breaks a company like this.
I have no proof, but if I were to bet on it, I'd think that these companies are run by just a few people, out of their garages. When, to make a real go of a business, they need to hire a full competent staff to handle their Kickstarter loads. Maybe even take out a business loan, depending. The first couple of years would be difficult, and probably not very profitable, but once they get fully established, then they will have carved out a nice niche for themselves within the market.
It's a good model, though I prefer the Mierce one. What are Creature Caster like? I think I've read some bad things about the company/casting quality in the past, though their models looked good when I saw them at Salute.
I have their Treewoman and I really like her. Casting quality was good but I got her through their Kickstarter so not too sure about turn-around time, to by honest. I really like their sculpts, though.
