Thought I'd share this with you. I recently ordered some custom made rigging for my film at a very reasonable price and great quality! It might be interesting for you that want to have nice armatures but don't have the budget for the really high end stuff.
The guy who makes this is Piotr Nawrocki. He is based in Poland. I think he is pretty old school because he doesn't have a website at the moment, but he has a lot of experience working with big studio's like se-ma-for in Poland.
I attached some pictures of the stuff that I ordered. All parts together set me back 360 euro's which is not a lot for this amount of parts. They feel very solid and move nicely. He uses an interesting combination of pre made parts, solder and metal glue (somethin like locktite I assume)
I allso got some pictures from him with all the different stuff he makes/has in stock. Hopefully this is usefull for anyone out there looking to buy some armatures?
