Its technically 38mm scale.

They are roughly the size of stormcast - which works for some people but others don't like to see like human soldiers the same size as stormcast.

I have lord of the rings, warhammer, some aos, kings of war sitting here and they are a shade bigger than those.

I'm a little worried that all of the lore entries map 1:1 to entries already on the website as far as I can tell.

Seems like the old companion (genesis stuff / faction lore on the website) + faction lore that was on the living world/campaign book. Not worth it if you are already familiar/read the lore somewhere else.

Sort of a mess up on their part to list it on the estore as 250 pages of lore, when it really is 150 pages all of which is already published in other books.

Agree. I asked them a few weeks ago to change the e-shop description if it was not the case. Seems like they forgot.
Not the first time it happens, the previous Companion was advertised as "300 pages of history of Ea", when it barely has a third.
Attention to detail isnt their strength. Hope they catch up though.

I was planning to buy the companion for new lore, but without that I'm not sure. Definitely some poor messaging around that.

Wonder if that Spire has ever heard of the wonders of Dirz?

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

From what has been told me, the new companion has new lore in it.

It does not apparently. They confirmed on Discord it is the first Companion plus the Campaign book.

Yeah, the only advantage of the new book is that you have all the current lore in one place.

And new updated rules, i think called it 1.5 edition makes it pretty clear, i don't understand why people got confused

The initial description said 250 pages of background with new details about the history of Ea or something along the lines.

Wrong product advertisement = people getting confused when told it is not the case.

You misunderstood. We talked about the lore only = if you have old book plus campaign one then the new companion is only good if you prefer to have the lore in one place.

I was a bit meh on this one before, but seeing it painted up really brings it to life. Gorgeous. And two separate characters in game so that's pretty cool.

Ha!

That's what I think mean I see most of the Spire range too.

(And then I miss Confrontation (before the PPP) and Rackahm too, to a lesser extent.)

That is some nice work being done. Amazing how far they've come from a few years ago.

Interesting that they use a rig to pose the model. Using that tool in such a way had not occurred to me.

I mean, how else would you do it? Like i know there are other ways, but hey are all significantly more complicated and time consuming and generally less flexible. A big part of the shift towards 3d sculpting is that you don't need to sculpt a bunch of minis in unique poses like was done in the past, you sculpt it once and repose it as you need to.
