Are these in plastic? If so they look as good, even better, than what gw kits. Impressive if its the case


Yes, regiments are plastic.
Characters (and a few very selected regiments, 1 per faction) are resin.

Tbh, PB has improved a lot their material quality since the core box. The newer stuff ain't that different from GW. And their resin is waaay better than FW.
The fact they can produce it in USA/Greece without getting too ridiculous on the price is also quite positive.

Some regiments are resin. Regardless the quality has skyrocketed in the last year. If it weren't for the scale one might see a new release and think it was a different company from the starter set stuff.

Those look very impressive. I'll definitely be getting the dinosaurs and at least one regiment to act as trolls for smaller scale fantasy.

I dig the jungle vibe they've got going.

I'm excited to pick some up.

So for the First Blood starter box it is a mix of Braves/Blooded and Slingers/Hunters dual kits. Add a box of Raptor Riders and/or Warbred and you have a nice FB force.

Looks like the lack of rider fitting I was concerned about when we saw the preview designs made it to the physical product. Shame, because they are gorgeous miniatures otherwise. This whole faction is looking quite good, definitely want to see them from more angles to get a full idea.

I’ve been pretty hard on the company since I was disappointed with the starter set. I found the Dweghom to be good quality in design and casting but very limited in terms of posing. Are the newer kits easier to work with for someone who prefers minis not to rank up?

It's bizarre. Both the mounts and the raiders are clearly well done, but no one thought to sculpt a simple saddle to go between the two?

I will say that their recent releases, were it not for the unique scale, could be passed off as being from a different company. The increase in quality is that dramatic.

and the lore page has been updated to include the general lore for the faction.

Looking at the store, it says the minis will ship April 26th... ughhhhh I don't want to wait that long!

There are no saddles in the concept art too so it is a design/lore choice.

I can also confirm that, in just two years they have come a very long way. Some of their resin characters knock GW stuff out of the park in quality. I can't wait to see what they come up with next.

I hope the Wadhrun teach it to roar with its diaphragm instead of its throat before it damages its vocal cords. I can only imagine a field of raptors that all sound like Harvey Fierstein with strep throat.

Interesting note that I haven't seen anywhere else- the newest kits I got today have totally new plastic manufacturers.

The contact points are MUCH smaller, and they say they were manufactured in Poland.

I'm wondering if Archon is doing the production? That's the first minis company I can think of in Poland that casts in plastic locally.

(It was the longbow/ hunter cadre for the Hundred Kingdoms if anyone's curious).

My preview Scion showed up too- nice kit! Judging by that model they're going to be pretty burly, as he barely fits on the included base!

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

Watch and listen to me ramble about these minis before ruining them with paint!

Trolls sprue has Poland on, I do not know about the other kits.

Trolls box says it is manufactured by PBW so I think they did the same as with the USA, and simply bought machines etc. needed to produce minis.

Yeah they said in Discord that the trolls is just a preview of their new plastics and all the kits from now on will be way better than before.
