Interesting to choose the Blooded as the first hero to be transferred into plastic, I was expecting someone more, standard? Like the Captain or Jarl.

Blooded has the most filled out warband where Jarls and Konungyrs are kind of stuck with raiders and huskarls.

At least locally, that has made Jarls and Konungyrs basically non-existent as they have the most boring list building imaginable, where Blooded as your "core" has options (and the Supremacy Ability is 10x juicier than anything the others offer)

I am fully aware, It's just interesting they didn't choose a more, how to say, traditional basic leader, like the Noble Lord or the Hold Raegh to be the first to be plastic-ized.

Also I mean, Jarls and Konungyrs are not entirely out of the picture, the 3rd place in Gencon 2022 was a Norse build with both.

Jarl is already in plastic they just didn't change the sculpt.

Firsr Blood Version 2 says there are two types of the Blooded, crow and wolf, but does Para-bellum plan to produce crow version Blooded?

No, there's rules for tons of units that Parabellum doesn't yet make.

Usually not the case with First Blood 2.0. They've stripped basically all unreleased models from that ruleset.

I'm going to guess that Wolf and Crow Blooded are intended to use the same model.

Crimson Tower look even more exceptional painted up. Not 100% sold on the Kanephors or Karyatids but that might just be because they're not a direct translation of the amazing concept art into miniature format. Edit: Correction Turns out that artwork isn't in fact those units anyway (clarified by the devs) so there's more to come.

Not big on Kenaphors, still waiting on the fiery bronze melee statues.

I like that guy in the cloak resting on his shield. Nice looking hero.

Would make a great Ranger for Shadow Deep too.

Guess it's time to start getting funky for the new First Blood rules.
The more I look at my Spire drones, the more I feel the need to butcher them and rebuild them "better."
What that might entail, I'm not sure yet. Seen some cool bodyguard types made with the multi- armed archer bodies.

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

Those are kanephors? Aren't they supposed to be the flaming angel guys?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying they look bad, I was just expecting the angel.

I hope the carytids look like the art of that creepy long neck woman. It would be kind of gakky of PB to go "Hey, look at our cool concept art. Oh, you wanted models of them? Too bad"

They actually showed off Caryatids already, it's just that for some reason they didn't get posted here.

And no, they don't have long necks

That is a really cool design with just enough originality to be fresh and just enough classic to not look weird. Legitimately impressed.

Again, not a bad model, but then what were those things we saw when Old Dominion was announced?
I'm really confused, because I really thought those were going to be kanephors and caryatids.

Sorry to rain on your pararde, but those are the things we all saw announced. Animated stone statues with black goop coming out of them. This is just how they translated that, er, concept, to miniature form. The fiery bronze roman statue is just a different unit that we're not going to get yet it seems like - especially given how both Cepenhors and Caryatids are names that refer to statues of women.

I dunno, the models are nice but the art had more of a horror factor going on. I think the art is more disturbing looking.

It's not even concept art as I'm pretty sure that's what was advertised and revealed.

Anyway, on discord they're implying that those guys could be part of the Profane Sepulcher.

Profane Sepulcher seems to belong to The Final Creed, and Illustrations of burning angel were introduced as The Fallen Pantheon.
So I expect that the angel will be Keeper of the Dead or Key Warden, and long neck female statue will be Erinyes.
It's hard to think Para Bellum are going to change a long-published design, but it's also hard to think they'll apply it to the Command Model.
In any case, we have to respect their design changes for reasons of mass production and public appeal.

Agreed that the giant looks nice (admittedly I was biased in that I'm a fan of the previous one as well). What's the point of the Founder's Exclusive? To offer exclusive sculpts or the upcoming regular sculpts but in resin? Have they don't this before?

They've done one for every faction so far. They're effectively mini dioramas that are ostensibly limited edition. Collector's pieces that are usually alternative sculpts. I think a lot of them are later released but without the scenic bases.

Same here. It doesn't help that the actual models are fairly plain and kinda awkward when they don't actually have legs.
