Asmodee has constant supply issues that create lots of problems for games like this. Typical board games and tabletop products are not an issue, but games like Legion, X-Wing, Armada, and A Song of Ice and Fire constantly have their product releases delayed by months, products show up in different parts of the world at different times (very frustrating when Asmodee makes an announcement that the release of a product you pre-ordered is delayed 3 months, and 2 days later people in Poland and Germany are posting pictures of that product on sale while its impossible to get anywhere else), and popular products often end up being out of stock for extended periods until they can be reprinted and restocked which makes it hard for people who are trying to collect stuff or build an army over time.

The non-exclusivity is the saving grace here so hopefully its less of an issue. TBH I was being somewhat sarcastic with my post as I doubt Asmodee distro would actually kill the game, but I cringe every time I hear that a publisher has signed a distribution deal with them. I guess enough other people feel the same about them and their distribution practices that it struck a chord with them.

Huh, my flgs uses Asmodee (among others) and the issues aren't nearly that bad. Particularly for these days when everyone is having issues. At any rate I see Asmodee sticking it in addition to previous methods as a good thing.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this was already posted a few times.

Still a welcome change and a good sculpt.

Asmodee recently became their (non-exclusive) distributor so they definitely are doing very okay.

If people abandon Conquest for Old Hammer then minigamers deserve all the gakky treatment they get from GW all these years.

Conquest has an amazing ruleset. Interesting lore and they involve the community with the direction of the game overall.



Now thats a bit strong isn't it? If people abandon Conquest for Old Hammer then Conquest needs to compete. People aren't wrong for play games they want to play.

GW Market dominance can be immensely limiting and feel like a lot of non GW games lack for opponents, but there are notable exceptions. At my local clubs in my city you can pretty much always find Kings of War and newer games like turnip 28 being played.

In my area its mostly the models and mostly system incompatible scale which turn people off.

That and a lot of warhammer players seem to have abused wife syndrome. They bitch about how terrible GW and the rule set is, then they buy the next expensive model and edition.
Then they wonder why GW doesn't change.

Eh, GW does change, going in directions both better and worse. It has a tremendous impact. The end of Kirby days and rise of Roundtree nuGW did not drum up popularity with a few token changes; they completely overhauled how the company operated and people noticed.

What PB needs to do is stick with their strengths and work on their weaknesses, and they'll stick around. If they refuse to address those weaknesses and let baggage build up, on the other hand... well PP ain't doing so well these days.

I do think the nature of AA vs IgoUgo means that to a certain extent the games appeal to different people.

Agreed, this is one of their weaker ones, especially for the resculpts. The angle of the lead foot feels off and that face is just weird compared to what they can usually do, though it might just be the paintjob (which would be a very rare miss from PB in that department). Thankfully the resin one looks like it's coming back into stock (and is the same price as the new one).

This nothing to do with it if GW went AA people would prais how indicative they are and goble it up. GW only issue is price is getting rediculas.

The face isn't great and the waist seem to be a little bit too turned, but I like his armour and coat, and that is a nice pose. I'd rather he was in mid-unsheathing instead of just holding the sword in front of him though.

I liked the furry cloak and the older face of the resin more more, details-wise though.

Is it just me or are the Nobles feet distractingly big?

Poor sculpt all around, imo. PB struggles with humanoid stuff but their dinosaurs are the best out there.

It's both due to a perspective trick (his feet are the closest to the viewer at the angle where the promo pic was taken, they look fine otherwise), and the fact that full-plate boots were generally noticeably elongated outside the lenght of the actual foot due to their design.

I'm actually fine with the pose, I just wish he had the head and cloak of the old model.
Okay, and maybe if he was drawing his sword.

I really like them branching into multi-base options for infantry regiments and the design is nice. I only dislike how that sarcophagus looks WAY too big for one dude, even of supernatural strength, to be dragging. Still though, cool design and I think it will look great as part of a regiment.

The diorama aspect is really neat, and the Wardens really have a nice "classic dwarf" look compared to the rest of the Dweghom range. If the Warriors/Ballistae/Thanes looked more like that, I'd consider Dweghom!

Totally agreed, I am really liking the multi-base aspect taking advantage of how the trays work. Wardens seem to have suffered a bit for it with some stiff posing but like the Warriors I imagine a little bit of shaving & adjusting will do a lot for them. For both I like the monk-ish aesthetic to their garb as it sells the distinct subculture while still remaining distinctly Dweghom.

Likewise, these are probably my favourite looking Dweghom unit purely because they don't have that slightly cartoonish approach to their armour and the really stilted poses of some of their early plastics.
