Graven Games takes a look at the Holy Gates Keeper St. Peter model from Hitech Miniatures.

From the review:

Welcome to today’s review in which we will be looking at the our first model from HiTech Miniatures, the intimidating looking 28mm heroic scale, Holy Gates Keeper St. Peter. We won this miniature in a conversion competition held on Facebook by the Hammer Boyz, it looks perfect for use in Warhammer 40k, especially a Dark Angels army and would make a great centerpiece. This 10 piece resin kit is normally priced at 17 Euro (around $22) and is part of HiTech’s Archangels range.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    It sure looks amateurish. Press-mould junk.

      So like he said, pretty much spot-on for 40K 😉

      Honestly I think it looks fine. The detail is clean and the model has no obvious casting flaws. It does suffer from the “unworkable exo armour” problem that everyone that makes full power plate has, but that’s more a genre issue than a mini issue. I don’t see a problem with it.

      I’m not going to BUY it of course, but that’s because it doesn’t appeal to me rather than any distaste at the model.

        It has many casting flaws. There is a ton of flash in all the nooks and crannies and on the gun. There are also bubbles in the hoses. The arms are too straight and the pose looks awkward. It looks like an amateurish conversion basically, and the cast isn’t great either. There are many awesome 40k-compatible companies that produce good quality stuff (maxmini, puppets of war) but the stuff HiTech makes is pretty crappy.

        Yeah, but they hate the game, not the players.
