That is... disappointing.
But let's forget that and focus on the positives. There are a lot of things to like in these reveals (more tomorrow?), including a bona fide expansion pack for Blackstone Fortress rather than Silver Tower's repurposed Warhammer minis. And the Ambullissance continues with the Ambots being revealed. I mean sure, keen-eyed readers would have seen it in the Version 1.0 Stream Release of Newcromunda (along with another upcoming noble-looking Bounty Hunter with a powdered wig), but it's nice to finally see them.
I have to say that without a shadow of a doubt my fav mini out of this entire lot would have been her:
This miniature is simply fantastic. I cannot wait to get it. GW
's previews in recent months have only made me exclaim out loud involuntarily twice. Once was the plastic Flesh Hounds ("YES!"
, I cried at the YouTube window, as I had been waiting a long time for them), and the other was this Magus ("Aw sweet!"
I said aloud to no one, equal parts happy that the model existed, yet sad that GW
continues their 'only draw the minis' trend).
And I said she would have been my fav mini of the whole bunch... except then they showed this guy:
I don't know who this guy is or what he does, other than the picture calls him a 'Cult Locus'. It's... amazing. He's almost Genestealer Cult Mechanicus with the decoration on the robe's trim. He's just incredible. A new AdMech HQ
mini is also nice. Do hope he's not only in the Commander KT box. Is that going to be a thing going forwards? Commanders in the KT faction boxes? If it gets rid of the shockingly overpriced individual commander boxes, then good!
There are tons of other amazing things. We get an expansion on those "Moonbase" ruins as a new soon-to-be-sold-out KT Killzone, including new buildings to go with it. We get more Sector Mechanicus terrain (which as you know, I need more of
), in the form of this fabulous drill: (Funt Fact - this drill comes with the 'straight walkway' sprue, which is one of the harder ones to get as most sets don't include it)
And if any'a y'all have a keen eye, then if you turn your head 90 degrees to the right you'll see something very new here:
