Lookin' good.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Looking great, but I am still not sold on the goblin rider legs doubling as standing ones. Even 80ies He-Man had a more natural stance...

They've come a long way since the Raumjaeger. Those sprues look sharp and densely packed.

Always amused when companies think inverting the lasgun muzzles makes it okay

Why would it not be okay?

Lasguns have a barrel tip that looks like the Pancor Jackhammer shotgun.

Cannon Fodder have a barrel tip reminiscent of the AKM assault rifle.

Both based on real guns.

I am liking all three of those…. and I was not a fan of the Cannon Fodder originally but with some different weapons and backpacks, those would make cool space suited troops with those enclosed helmets. Not that I currently need WW1/2 or sci-fi models. Those Goblins however are high on my want list. They should mesh nicely with the aesthetic we are going for with our Middle Earth gaming.

Looking forward to the Cannon Fodder. About a third of the box will become Penal Legion, but in Stargrave for the Unwanted Attention rules. They'll be the basic ruffians driven forward by the elite Pirate troopers. Others will have space suit helmets as a nod to Space: 1999, and will be characters or adversaries as needed. I also found on Shapeways 28mm construction helmets, so the option to make James Bond minions exists, although that's low priority, and I may just paint the included helmets yellow to save money.

Don't need the WW2 French, but if they scale well with Les Grognards, I may buy a box.

I’ll have to look closely at how well the WW2 French stack against the pnazerlehr in terms of “generic WW2-ish outfit”. A lot of my favorite Sci fi productions had costumes that were essentially a bunch of mismatched historical uniforms thrown together with some Sci fi doodads.

i'd really like to see the scale on the goblins.
Also the riderlegs are ... not great....to say the least. The rest of the kit though is awesome.

I was hoping to use the goblin legs to convert a hafling to be mounted on a griffon... not sure it will work based on the photos...

Why are gobbos on the same sprue as conscripts?

Cause they're both half-sprues, they're gonna cut it in the middle so both Gobbo box and Conscript box is going to have one-and-a-half sprue.

I think one of the most impressive things is how much the zip has 'shrunk' now it's in plastic (I know several folk were worried about it when the resins were shown)

I can't wait to get some

because casting sprues are big so you get the most out of it per mold

hence why many small sprues are more expensive than 1 normal sprue and it is cheaper to just add missing parts to another sprue were there is space left than creating a full new sprue for it (so much cheaper that it is possible to have people paid to cut the parts out and pack it with the other sprue than doing another half sprue dedicated for those models)

for example in the typical GW Box you get 1 sprue cut in 2 pieces to fit into the box not 2 individual made sprues

New Set Announcement: Bavarians!

The Bavarians under their "Mad King" Ludwig II fought both with and against the Prussians in the wars of 1866 and 1870. We've designed this set to include headgear for both conflicts along with command. The set will feature 30 figures and be available a little later this year.

Here are some painted versions by Jason Frowde. We'll have the full sprue and the box illustration soon.

At first I was onboard because I could use their helmeted heads for fantasy armies and their bodies for feudal space opera. Then I saw the hats. Those hats!

Now I need to take those hat heads, put them on the Panzerlehr, and paint the entire outfit to look like shiny black leather. Blue Oyster cultists!

Bonus that I’d be converting Nazis into something they’d hate.
