Worse than Stormcast?
Nope... Stormcast is still the worst of the worst.
Yes, I think it's to do with a mold type thing but I'm not 100% on that.
There was that talk about GW using the resin Forgeworld uses but I haven't seen much of a change. Even though I pinned parts on my Dread Saurian he still likes to fall apart when I'm not looking, either the glue or just the model itself.
I have a model from Mierce Miniatures that is resin, holds that bit well but there was some small gaps on it. There is a difference in the resin used as it's a different colour and the texture feels different, quality is there also in the parts.
Then I had problems taking a piece I glued on my Vargulf from GW off, that took a while
How about Finecast Eternals?
That's actually better than plastic Stormcast... at least that way we aren't wasting the good material on SCE.
Awwwwwww. Now that’s harsh. I quite like the Gryfffhounds.
((...looks at avatar; whistles...))
I'd agree that the Gryffhounds are pretty good, but they aren't themselves SCE.
Indeed the Gryph-Hounds are fun, but they aren’t Stormcast - they’re just allies of the Stormcast who can be taken in the same army. To the same extent the Gryph-chargers are pretty nice models without the Stormcast on them and could be used as Bretonnian Hippogryphs if you found some wings for them.
So the models are up on preorder/Made to order
Settra is £30
Khalida is £15
This is for UK
Brought those two and the zombie dragon
I noticed Forgeworld have a few models from the Chaos going on Last Chance and there is a few I want but wanted my TK and dragon
Sadly it is confirmed that the Settra "made to order" is FailCast.
Such as shame, I would have picked one up if it was metal.
Although unrelated to GW (these are produced by Mantic), I thought these terrain accessories might be of interest to some of you:
Those look really good.
This is probably the first Regimental Standard article I’ve found to be truly funny - and shows how short-sighted the Imperium is (or how cunning the Genestealer Cults are, or a bit of both), and also instructs you to shave your head if not already bald, and, if you are bald, to shine your bald patch in tribute to the Genestealer Cults, although not so much as to cause it to shine in people’s faces...
And indeed the Mantic Terrain Crate pieces are nice. The little accessories sets remind me of GW in the days of old, when you could buy bits packs like 5th Edition Lizardmen shields despite the game being in its 8th Edition...
I'm definitely intrigued. They all seem pretty good, but my favourite one is:
I just hope that they are well scaled to Warhammer minis.
They should be, as Kings of War is about the same scale as Warhammer Fantasy, as are most of their other games.
It makes sense that it would be. 28mm scale would reach the widest possible consumer base.
Cawdor Gang is on its way soon!
Games Workshop sees profits nearly double
Interesting. Thanks for the links!
