Thanks. Yes, it's a decent price, and one will have plenty of heads (and perhaps other bits) for other projects. If they have multi-box deals, that's good for people who want a Imperial Guard army. I'll just want one box for Kill Team myself. I wonder if the heads could be used with either Victoria Miniature torsos or Anvil torsos?

Hudson mentioned $35, like thier not-steel-legion

For 144 heads and 24 bodies, not a bad kit.

Also, they are probably going to have multi box deals

RE: Marcus

Simple, I don't like the rifles. They look a bit short, a bit busy and their bayonets are somewhat comical looking. I also don't much care for their special weapons...they just look clunky/overdesigned. Luckily if these match up with resin arms/rifles that's an easy fix. You'd still save heaps of money getting 24 bodies for $35, etc. I don't need the kit to be perfect (it'd be a blessing if it was though!). Good news on the heads as well. Do these guys come with backpacks?

Thanks, the spearman looks good, but I am less sure about the archer. I am sure they will look good in a Men of Bronze army though.

I can understand your reasoning on the weaponry. For the record I actually like it although I agree that the bandits are a little weird but then bayonets are hard to sculpt and have come out good in smaller scales anyway.

From what I understand they come with backpacks

Look at our profits, now look at our sales, now look back at our profits. Sadly, sales numbers aren't in line with our profits, but it could be, now that we've introduced FINECAST(tm), slashed staff and raised prices. Look at my hand, its our annual report... look again, the report is now DIAMONDS. Anything is possible when you invest with GW. (I'm issuing a dividend.)

The bayonets are probably my least favorite thing about them. And they look like they won't be very easy to remove. It would have been a good idea to design them so they are easy to remove without damaging the rest of the rifle. That will be a huge number of extra heads, though, if one can find some use for them.

Yeah if they made a reasonable $35 kit for 10-12 "sci fi cavalry", say hello Rough Riders (although I admit I think GW will produce a new plastic Rough Rider kit in the future)

That won't be on horses. Knowing them they will repurpose the cad files for the GSC bikes and stick cadians or catachans on them.

Greatcoat cav would be excellent.

I'm from the future. The future of space

It might just be me, but the angle from the wastes to the bottom of the great coats looks really off. Like instead of them being great coats, they look like gowns or dresses.

Spoiler:


Actually now that I think about it, if you wanted miniatures that looked obviously feminine while still being dressed reasonably, combining these with some Victoria of Statuesque heads might make for a great all female guard regiment. The flaring out of the bottom half of the great coat definitely gives the impression of a wider hip to waist ratio without being in any way sexualized.

Balance in pick up games? Two people, each with their own goals for the game, design half a board game on their own without knowing the layout of the board and hope it all works out. Good luck with that. The faster you can find like minded individuals who want the same things from the game as you, the better.

Any other versions of the photo. I'm working away from home with limited facilities for the next couple of months and the pic in the original post isn't working for me.

As per others here, I have a sprue or two on the way after completing the wargames survey and I'm interested in what I'll be getting.

Oh, I agree. The Rough Riders will end up being on some very particular sci-fi beasty with an awful name.

His cavalry set would be a good place for rough riders. Also quite possible to get beast themed rough riders soon, as he is helping producing those as well with rgdgaming.

If properly modeled I admit...I would not be opposed to Centaur "Abhuman" Rough Riders. It'd be a bit old school, a bit rock-n-roll.

Hey y'all.

Wargames Atlantic is requesting suggestions for what the community would like to see if they expand on the French infantry (if they sell well) on thier Facebook group, Wargames Atlantic legion.

A large proportion of commenters are suggesting different head variants.

What would you like to see?

I think the obvious answer is that they'll do best if they keep proxying Imperial Guard unit options. Cavalry would be superb, "light field artillery" would be successful. A command box, etc. If the command box just included a ton of options (arms, heads, accoutrement, etc.) it could be a great add-on box to customize all the other boxes, etc.

A couple of banners, a couple of medics, etc.

Interesting. Are the pickelhaubes from the Warlord Zulu war British Infantry set?

As for what expansions I'd like to see ... Special & Heavy Weapons, Command head options (NCO & Officers' kepis have braid and an embroidered design on the top of the hat), Carabiniers-à-Cheval and Dragoon helmets.

Here's a scale shot with some of the greatcoats.



Wargames Atlantic Raumjager, Dreamforge Eisenkern (body), GW Blackstone Traitor Guard, Wargames Atlantic Greatcoat, GW Chaos Marine, Hydra Miniatures, Wargames Atlantic Greatcoat, GW Necromunda Goliath, Raging Heroes.

I really need to get a couple normal Cadians for these types of comparison shots... I have an oddball miniatures collection.

Would a Raumjager torso fit on the Greatcoat legs?

How about a third party Commissar torso? (And who makes the best "heroic scale" version of those? Anvil Industry?)

I'm curious if they're the same sculptor. The Raumjagers look really poor to me, where the greatcoat fellas look a good bit better.

The greatcoats I received were 3D printed prototypes; my guess is that the torso will not be a separate piece when injection molded. I don't know for sure though.
