UTC (or Unified Theory Games) just hates it when you're on the hunt for a particular model for use in a game or whatnot and you just can't find it. To help out, they've created the Miniature Database. So you can search by keywords and hopefully find it is what you're looking for.



From them to you:

The first stage of the Vortex Global Warboard is live on UTG’s website.
The Miniature Database contains a growing publicly-supported collection of miniature photographs that can be viewed by genre to assist players in finding just the right miniatures for play in the omni-genre universe of Vortex.
Players may upload and show off their own miniatures. These pictures will eventually be tied into the full Warboard site which will allow players to generate combatants and track their campaign standings.
