Great grab on the Zoat! I'm thinking about picking up the kit but wasn't sure - excited to see your thoughts and feelings on it, and whether it's worth the addition.

Thanks, everyone!

Do it, Nev!

This came in. FLGS making it happen. This will disrupt things easily as much as the Limbo Division lassies, with a backside nearly as big.



Still plenty on the go. Thanks for looking!


Awesome! Still waiting to order mine when they get everything I want in stock at the same time!

Slow week, man. Thanks for the comments, guys.

I can't comment on the game value of the Zoat, since I don't own BSF. The price for just the model seems a little steep, but that's GW. Dig the sculpt (there's even gem looking things on the glove), with one small exception, which I have addressed here:



Wasn't too thrilled with the stunted taser they gave him, so I had immediate plans to switch that up. Problem is, my initial replacement was too big, and dated in its sculpt. Didn't mesh. Plan B...I don't own. Thought I did. Have to look into that at some point. So it was digging time, and this is what I came out with. I'm ok with it now. On to the rest of the assembly.

Thanks for looking!

And here he is all together next to a Reiver for scale. Neat, but it wouldn't have killed me to get a smidge more plastic for my 60 clams.



Nostalgia won this round. Thanks for looking.

How does this new guy scale with all your other Zoats? A lot bigger?

Similar profile, but all-around larger. Especially width-wise. The hips, they don't lie.

You know what the say, "one moment on the lips, forever on the hips"... Although do Zoats have lips
Modded weapon looks good and the sculpt in general is really nice. May cave at some point, still haven't played one game of Blackstone Fortress, but he is usable in 40k and should fit perfectly into a Inquisitor retinue
Excited to see you tackle him (her? it?).

Zoat weapon is a great improvement, IMO.

Look forward to seeing him painted!

Thanks for the size comparison. It is noticeably larger, but not by as much as I expected.

The gun conversion has come out really well, cannot wait to see him painted up. Just wish the box was cheaper, I just have no need for the assorted cards, missions etc.

Nice new gun he's got there! Funny to see that scale creep continues, even for models we haven't seen for twenty years.

it's not scale creep, It's a scale condition . Poor beast needs medical attention.

No, it really is silly how models have grown and grown over the years. People want to complain about how bad old sculpts are, but to get those details on the smaller figs, some details got lost.

Thanks, all!

Yes, Viterbi. Perfect for an Inquisitor's retinue. Due to the differences in scale and size, he is destined for the =][=28 shelf. And he will be the first =][=28 model painted, seeing as how the models that started this blog still aren't. One day...

Old sculpts bad? I say! Thankfully, people around here have a healthy appreciation for the classics. Theo, here's some old sculpts in all their small, less-detailed glory.





All set for some dry-brushing and Contrast. We'll see how it goes.

And they have a Cave Troll. Well, he may live in a cave.



Moving along. Thanks for looking!

Zestiest, zaniest, zealousest?

I think I've made my love for old pewter clear at this point but it never hurts to say again; love to see those terminators, thanks for sharing.

Here is a bit more old pewter for you, DQH. Cross-post from your retro thread. Some more old Terminators. A squad of Grey Knights and the rest of RTB09, plus some random Cyclone guy.

If you put those guys and the others on the battlefield, the table better be sturdy I remember having a squad of metal Grey Knights my first time around in this hobby. They were usually the only models left at the end of the game.
