    Hello there

    Im from Spain and i manage a sci fi spanish site (dkhm.es).

    Though i had a lotr warhammer collection never played and is now, and because of total war warhammer 2, that i start playing AoS.

    Want to start with seraphons but the amount of old and ugly models took me to start with Death instead...
    I guess theres no plans for updated models isnt?

    So till then ill keep looking for cool models for kroxigors and cold ones specially before starting my lizard army!

    And... what a long post! Nice to meet you all and hope to be here for a long time!

    Welcome!
    With a bit of Greenstuff you can make the cold ones a lot more bearable. Or you could use Dark Aelf cold ones instead.

    Unfortunately it is not very likely that we will get new models anytime soon.

    Welcome,

    Unfortunately no new models but we have had a rumour by one of our posters about a possible update in early 2019 but don't hold your breath.

    Gamezone do some coldones that look good but expensive if you require lots, or as @Aginor states use the coldones from the Darkelves, Kroxigor we were blessed with woogity Krox a year back but alas he no longer makes them :(

    If you like the Crocodile like aesthetics of Kroxigor in Total War Warhammer 2 you might want to look at those "Gatormen" miniatures from.... Hordes I think.
    IIRC @Warden has some pictures in his blog.

    Thank you for the replies and tips!

    Ive seen the gamezone cold ones and just look amazing... but if i want to get 10 to 30 units... my wallet starts to bleed...

    Gatormen are awesome too! Ive already seen other crocs minis and is to cool to see i have options for them.

    Would like to give a try with green stuff. No one has tried and have some pics? Cause i was looking pics on google and.. nothing.

    And yeah aelf riders looks way better too but cant find them on ebay. Im searching them as aelf riders or aelf cold ones, is it right?

    So... thanks again and ill start to make my list!!

    Welcome!

    They were great models! I believe the older sets were made of metal, but mine were resin/plastic and some of the easiest models I have assembled recently. They don't have many poses, but they were easy to build and fun to paint. If you aren't concerned about potentially playing in a GW store/tournament where they won't allow non-GW models then I would highly recommend them! :vulcan:

    Really happy with how my first unit turned out:

    More pics. :artist::snaphappy:

    I also have some size comparison pics here. :bookworm:

    Ill pick that crocs for sure! Maybe a bit expensive but im thinking on getting 3 to 6 crocs as much so i can afford.

    About cold ones the GZ models are superb and costs about 10eur each one (plus the conversion i should made to fit saurus). And i want 10-20 of them so its a bit expensive... no chinese clons or so anywhere? I meet a guy who make molds and clones professionally but i should ask for about 40 units so... still thinkin on cold ones...

    Cant understand why Gw didnt updated them even with the aelf models...

    Congratulations, by ignoring my pop culture reference you have made me feel old.

    Oh no I totally got the pop culture reference. I was just paraphrasing it and adding in some lizard men themed wording to try not to have us come up with a forum approved version.

    The Sebeki from Wargods of Aegyptus (second time I've dropped that name on LO today) are also cool looking gator models. :)
