Resin/Metal like other recent PP figures. Resin body, metal limbs/weapons. Went in on the first figure. Casting quality wasn't great, but appears to be par for PP standards. Haven't gotten any recently.

Depends on the territory. Orders filled by Privateer will be metal/resin, orders filled by Cerberus (European) will have more metal. The recent Satyxis release helped support the 'grass is always greener' maxim.

The minicrate stuff has been all metal iirc, except for the first Swamp Siren, which was larger than anything else so far and had the resin body. I’ve been doing the vip subscription as I’ve been playing minions lately and the minicrate figs are all mercs and minions.

She's a Runeball wizard, there has to be a twist
The Runeball wizard has such a supple wrist!
How do you think she does it?
I don't know
What makes her so good?
Ain't got no distractions
Can't hear no buzzers and bells
Don't see lights a flashing
Plays by sense of smell
Always gets a replay
Never seen her fall
That deaf dumb and blind gal
Sure casts a mean Runeball!

Anyone got the subscriptions? I am not sure if I want to get or not. Still on the fence since I never seen anything like this before.

Is it reliable. Do they deliver on time? Did they ever miss a month or screw up the order and you never got the mini they said they would give?

Haven't missed one yet. You get email notice when it ships.

My one concern is quality control. I'm trusting them to do this right, but they like to video themselves destroying the molds to keep the sculpts collectible. If I open a box later on down the line and find a problem I want to know how difficult replacements will be

I’ve had zero issues so far with quality or missing parts. I do wonder about that myself and how much time they spend double checking or if they make some spares in case they miss something though.

Ugh, that actually makes me a little physically sick. What senseless, pointless vandalism. I genuinely cannot wait until 3D scanning and printing make the whole concept of "collectibility" obsolete.

I like the concept of the minicrate, but I don't like the exclusivity. Or the fact that there's no way to pick and choose figures afterwards, other than on the secondary market at typically inflated prices. I'm also not a fan of not really knowing what figures are coming further down the pipeline.

I really liked that Alton Ashley model,but couldn't justify the cost. I really wanted the hunter too, but by the time I found out about her, it was too late.

Not too jazzed by the runeball wizard either.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

As much as the exclusivity feels like a stunt to make people feel like they have to buy in now, I think its more a result of wanting a way to make things like this without having to support them long term. These fun promotional models are cool, but after a few years they lose their shine when they're offered over and over and the bulk of them piles up. You can really feel this in PP's con offerings and similarly when Wyrd opens up the webstore. It's not ideal, but I get the appeal of being able to promise yourself you don't have to produce these things forever.

I'm actually rather shocked at how much agency they've given players to buy in when they want and not turned it into a "mystery box"/"pay now or miss out" kind of thing. I think they've overall doing a really good job with it.

True, though I guess that depends on how badly you feel like you need a Gorman pun these days. Personally, PP's collection of cool models I don't own has gotten large enough that something like that doesn't affect me that much. I've also gotten a bit more realistic in general with my shiny impulse buys, so maybe its just a built up tolerance keeping me sane.

Exemplar concept art and descriptions up:

High Exemplar Cyrenia (Warcaster)

Cyrenia is a battle field commander of Idrian decent. Based on her rank of High Exemplar, she should excelle in battlefield command and inspiration of her troops. She should be focused on defensive tactical game play. Her feat, Vigilance of the Faithful should allow the army to react to oncoming attacks and is themed around both tactical acumen and divine intervention. Her Battle Plans should further reinforce these ideas. She is not a front line fighter herself but certainly should not be a weak combatant.

Hand of Silence (Solo)

Hand of Silence is a Reclaimer on a horse. Guiding spirits to Menoth is the primary function of the Hand of Silence. He should be a reasonable combat model while also fulfilling a powerful but niche support role. This is shown through Direct Spirits, Grave Resonace, Soul-Powered, and Strength of Death.

Exemplar Cinerator Officer (Command Attachment)

The Cinerator Officer brings a plethora of utility options to the Cinerators. Through his Shield Wall order, the Cinerator can become a very durable multi-would unit. Combined with the other defensive abiltiies of the protectorate arsenal this unit can become very difficult to dislodge from scenario zones. With Litany of Fire the unit picks up the ability to remove enemy upkeep spells. Tactics: Take Down is another utility piece to add to the now many options of the unit.

Shrine of the Lawgiver (Structure)

The Shrine brings a soul mechanic to Exemplar Interdiction. As the faithful are struck down, more are inspired to join the cause. Returning models to play is an important aspect of the Shrine of the Lawgiver. Path of Urcaen brings additional utility and a unique effect to the army.

I like that Cinerator too. Kind of a cross between a regular Bastion and the Seneschal, except this time with a fancy cape!

(and hopefully even larger pauldrons and leg armor)

I have even less need for Menoth stuff but I'll probably still get one. I'll have to start thinking about whether to paint him in zealot white or heretic black.

Resin is probably a good call for the game's generally hulking aesthetic. It's a nice material until you get to small, thin stuff, but I haven't seen how their 10 man units have turned out in resin. I've liked the Medium and up stuff I've put together.
