Some great deals on Ebay for these figures. Are the figures worth purchasing for Heroquest?

Dude, don't get me wrong but this attitude right there is what's wrong about crowdfunding campaigns.
You can't ask retail price if you're not a retailer.
I get your case and after how you described it you're in the right to try to sell it for a margin, but retail price?
You don't pay the taxes.

There's a huge market of pricks trying this as a crowdfunding tactic and I hope they all get their respective tax watchdogs on their asses. "Buying" 4 specimen, knowing that they wanna sell 3 for a margin...
Sorry for the rant. Was a key stimulus in regards to certain people on certain forums botching the advantages of crowdfunding campaigns specifically and hobby price structures in general in the long term.

I don't have any handy for comparison pics at the moment; I'll try to do that later in the week. For now, they're relatively similar scale, but maybe a little taller, a more "modern" style, and they definitely don't have the "heroic" scaling (the slightly oversized heads and hands) that some HQ figures have. As Sjeng pointed out, the bases are pretty great, definitely usable in other projects if you're into customizing. ;)
They may not be a 100% match if you're a stickler, but they work if you want to mix things up or need a standout mini for a specific character, as in my case. I used their Dwarf Revenants for the undead Dwarven Kings in Kellar's Keep, Quest 5. |_P I also think most of the furniture pieces could probably be used in HQ, but I haven't actually tried it yet. ...I should get that in my comparison pic, too...

Dude, I bought it from Mantis themselves, a retailer, so I did pay taxes. I bought it only slightly under retail. Retail for those 3 boxes was about €120,- I think.

I misunderstood, then. Sorry for insinuating, anway.
Doesn't change my gripes with the attitude that other people have, but shouldn't.
There are boatloads of people doing what you described without taking the proper responsibility or showing any ethics in the process.
I think I distanced myself from puttin you synonymous with that in my priginal post, though.
If you paid taxes, however, the buyer who buys it from you shouldn't have to.
It's how second hand works.

I went all in on this game. Spent weeks of evenings painting everything. I think its worth it if you can find a deal. Very cool minis in my humble opinion. Just be careful with them. They're the snappy kind like the old school HQ minis. Not bendy like reaper bones.
