  1. No spears for the light infantry? That's disappointing.
  2. Oof, my need for a 3rd ed WHFB wood/high elf army is flaring up.
  3. At first I thought it was weird but at this point it's just mystifying that there's no plastic musician bits on the sprue. I would gladly trade away the champion bits for it. Anyway, pretty decent wolfriders. Actually a pretty beefy wolf, got to say. Nice to see they don't have saddles so they'll make for good plastic dire wolves or something. I'm surprised to see that the legs and torsos are old school split. I still really, really want unarmoured goblins, tho. Raggedy and shirtless is the way to go. Elves will likely get mounted knights as well.
  4. Would it be doable to just write the miniature's height from the base to the top of the head on the page for it?
  5. Some unusual dragon variants Cyclopean dragon Elephantine dragon Fat dragon, not as a joke but just a particularly chunky dragon That sort of thing.
  6. Drinking horns and musical horns usually have differing numbers of holes, although I suppose they could be beer funnels that hold a note.
  7. Heeey, are those little extra bits meant to be musical or drinking horns?
  8. The skeleton with the scythe feels right out of 3rd edition WHFB. Both of them are something I'm keeping my eye on. I'm also interested in the wererat boss.
  9. I would like to see a lot more translucent miniatures, particularly slimes in many different shapes and sizes. I'd also like the current batch of translucent miniatures to also be available in clear plastic.
  10. Yeeaahh. I've been waiting for them to get rolling on that since I first learned the line exists. Honestly I would've preferred it if they just skipped the humans and went all in on dwarfs, elves and goblins. So I'm very much looking forward to infantry variants, cavalry and such.
  11. I placed an order just the other day and it included a ghoulie bag. I see no reason to think it wouldn't have the same paints and miniature as is listed on the US site, though presumably any candy included will be British. It would be funny if the names of the paints were spelled differently... My final order also listed three of the month's bonus vampire despite me only ordering 40 euro of stuff so uh I guess I'll just have to wait a few days to see what's up with that. The only negatives I've encountered is that clicking the tag on a miniature to display, say, all orcs or whatever doesn't appear to work yet and that the entire sortiment isn't yet available but I chalk those up to it being a beta site.
  12. That's entirely justifiable, though. your character is just so drunk it passes into local folklore. a fairly standard fantasy dwarf would absolutely, inevitably know a lot of passed-down stories of inexplicable behaviour carried out by various ancient druncles and attributed in spirit to some mythical beer trickster who was so good he could trick himself into beliving that everything he drank was brandy.
  13. Between the base providing an interesting pattern, the golem itself being a plain but respectable mass and the gas adding that extra little splash of something I think you're really on to something here. I thought it was magical fire first, it's rather pointy, but I'm not really any good at gas so I don't know if expecting something more rounded is correct. Maybe the golem could do with some more areas being washed? The side shots make me feel like the arms could do with something extra where the plates meet. It could just be the lighting.
  14. In fairness they did include pictures of the assembly process, and iirc they also note that the little turny bit to manipulate the deo stick works nicely as an engine nozzle.
  15. It's possible a pure resource book would sell less than a rule book but they've certainly done pure fluff releases previously and if they just include sweet enough pictures and conversions I suspect there could be a big enough market. I mean, Black Library technically does nothing but fluff. If nothing else, people would just spend the previous rule book money on miniatures and branch out more because the barrier of getting the book was lifted (which would increase retention between editions). It would be easier to have a main army and then one or two additional Kill Team forces. Encouraging small projects seems important to me and like it could pay off. Buut I'm just a layman crudely applying observations from other companies, Steam sales and the general trend of hobbies.
