Just as another point of view, while I have not seen any of Brigades
metal, I do have a few of the 15mm resin kits. I can tell you that they
are as nice as or nicer than any 15mm kits I've looked at in the past.
The casting is clean, and the ones I have have no significant bubbles.
And there are metal detail parts (guns, hatches, etc.) where
Very nice stuff.
