The assualt marine legs are also a pain to deal with because sometimes the toe is slanted... and breaks off the base easy. SO I have to literally put something against to hold it up....

Also the undead model is by far the worst of all time. IT needs to burn I have the model and i feel like terrioizing children with it O.o

Too bad we'll have to live with them for another twenty years or so. I'll just try my best to put the most feminine heads on warriors, which are surprisingly MORE feminine.

What's wrong with this? It was an extremely limited run from FW, and quite a nice model, IMO. It could have had more detail around the armor. Just because the actual model is crappy doesn't mean you have to copy it exactly.

I think the unit design, as seen on the few drawings they have in the IG codex, has potential, but the minis to me look, for lack of a better word, fat.

WHY THE FETH ARE THEY ALL RUNNING: They are a close combat unit, fueled by combat drugs, thats why they are running.
Blocky chests, square jaws, etc: warriors/soldiers (especially ones that fight hand-to-hand) will have well defined/enlarged musculature.
no attractive waist, idiotic hair styles and obviously 'wrong' boobs: they are warrior eldar not page 3 girls/porn stars. Eldar are not curvy.

If you want tits and ass go to a porn site (the internet is full of them), if you want a pretty accurate and common sence model based on Dark Eldar fluff and basic principles of muscle development the wyches are fine.

The Wych models are fine, they are warriors who use Combat drugs and train constantly. They weren't created by some idiotic designer whos view of women is ridiculous and fits the Dark Eldar background perfectly unlike some of GW's other female models.

Yep, good old Nagash. For those who don't remember, Nagash is on a 40mm base, and was a powerful character model back when the Undead were just one army. IIRC, Gary Morley (the sculptor) apologized for this one specifically. IMO, this model taught GW that people will buy crappy models if the rules for them are good enough.

At least most of these are older models. The few that aren't are overlaps from fantasy. 40k has lucked out with their models. Most are pretty good. Especially the more recent ones.

The fantasy line hasn't been as fortunate as I'm convinced GW makes their new recruits make a fantasy model and if it sells a thousand copies they get to be promoted to full time minimum wage with benefits as opposed to part-time slave labor.

The new DE Dragon--hell, most of the new monsters, Razorgore, etc.

Of course 40k also lacks the truly epic models which fantasy has a fair number of too.

The reason why people think that they're female Space Marines is because of the powered armor, when in reality anyone (in theory) could wear and use powered armor. There's a couple of pictures in the Rogue Trader book with mercenaries that have powered armor that looks exactly like the Imperial Marine powered armor.

That's irrelevant. There are plenty of 'bulky' women who still have nice bodies. It's not like your hips disappear or your lips get thin when you start exercising. Since when are eldar 'not curvy'? Obviously lelith is. Just because the models don't show attractive women doesn't mean that they don't exist!

The running thing I sort of get, but 4/5 of the legs in the set are running legs. That's overkill. Some running is fine, but 80% is too much for me, sorry. I'm not asking for porn-star-esque quality. I just want them to be better looking than the men in the same set!

I have a feeling that you have missed the entire concept of what the Wyches are supposed to be, hence your irritation.

They're athletes with no gender discrimination, pumped up on combat drugs with the express purpose of killing their enemies at close range in the most pain causing process possible. Hence, they are all running, that makes sense, a standing Wych would look stupid, they are all muscled, because they are athletes that compete in close combat. Hair isn't the best I agree actually, and whilst not everyone is good at or wants to work with green stuff, I personally just cut the ones I dislike and make it better, or that's what I've done with my single box so far.
