It's from 2010, so that was only like 3 or 4 years ago.
The fact that the Stormhawk is 10 years old makes me feel old, because I still think of it as that newfangled silly looking thing

That 2010 was ten years ago feels like a sick lie. Yet at the same time fething February feels like it was at least a year ago.

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.

Then we can have a laugh at 27-year-old minis still being sold


If you want, but Njal Stormcaller in power armour is a classic and that's a hill I'm willing to die on.

Thank you, gentlemen *tips hat*

I'm not a massive fan of the Hydra/Wyvern kit - the general lines are OK, but why is that turret freakin' open-backed?

Plastic Catachan infanty is up there, but I wouldn't define them as "recent".

Same. It's archetypal of those "flat" poses we were stuck with in the 90's. The limitations of casting and all that. I get the nostalgia, but I don't miss them one bit.

Boromites could've been better, but I think they're a better execution of the 'scaly humanoid' concept than Mantic's Matsudan.

I have to strongly disagree there. The Matsudan “sumo lizards” have a pretty unique aesthetic that may be hit or mis, but they don’t look like the sculptor spent an hour rolling little balls of green stuff and smooshing them onto the model.

Yeah, those were a sure fire hit for me. Saw them for the first time in the newsletter sent out earlier this week and loved them. Though, I'm a sucker for oddball xenos minis.

Those new plastic Cadians aren't so good either, bobble headed and with the damn left hand attached to the gun making weapon swaps a real pain. And as an added bonus they only come with half the special weapon options and no heavy weapons or weapon options for the sarge. But they're also like 5 or 6 years old so not really recent.

Hopefully GW will upgrade them soon, they certainly won't let this be the only IG infantry kit for 20+ years.

The Matsudan have actual textures. Are you just upset at their weight?

Really? Which two? I know the Ninja and Pirate were generic on release, and I think the Empire(ish) one with the feathered hat was, too.

These two.

And as I got those links I can see GW hilariously have not changed the URLs for either of them, which includes their old names.

Personally, after having acquired the actual Chadian miniatures, they don’t look so bad. However, GWs paint scheme for them is awful.

The VW Taurus actually looks better in the flesh, but I do wish it had been wheeled or half-track.

My immediate thought on reading that was those Cadians can't possibly have been released around 2014/2015.

This is an ancient Dakka/40k internet community joke. Starting with the release of the Cityfight supplemental book for 3rd edition 2001 (with Cadians on the cover) the hot rumor was that Cadians would be the next multi-part plastic kit. So after every Game Day some neckbeard would come on here and post that they spoke to a designer and that the plastic cadians would be coming out soon. It wasn't until 2003 and the Eye of Terror that they were finally released, but they really were the plastic sisters of their time.
