Those sets sound good to me. More draugr is always a good thing.

I hope the skeletons aren't too fragile at that scale.


I built a full set of the 2P starter in resin last week and the skeletons were pretty robust. The only issues we have had with the pre-production is some of the 2hand swords on the Storm Cloaks and Imperials were a little weak, but they have gone back to sculpting to be toughened up and remastered so that won't be a problem at launch.

If everything goes to plan with the "other" format for the game, they will be even more robust, but I don't want to count any chickens quite yet.

That's good to hear. Maybe it's just experience with other companies' resin models bleeding through unfairly (and metal... and plastic... oh, the woes of an undead player and his tiny bone men...). I do keep saying whatever resin mix you have for your Fallout models is pretty amazing, hitting that sweet spot between robustness and flexibility that makes them silly resistant to abuse for tiny resin models.

Well then, I'll be looking forward to seeing some pictures of those models. I mean, wouldn't want to let the effort of building them go to waste, would we?

Being cute here, until I get painted samples I don't want to play our hand. Memories of the Fallout renders coming out so far ahead of time... of course, the boss might over rule me and show the range

Hoping to paint my own in the next week or so.

Resins will be shown (unpainted) at UK Games Expo so photos may start to appear there.

I swear...if these are hints that the Elder Scrolls game might get HIPS sprues, and they do, and Fallout DOESN'T get HIPS power armor sprues...

This sounds excellent. I always wonder what "32 mm scale" means - is this going to be on the larger side, like GW stormcast eternals? Or will this fit in OK with older GW 'heroic' scale figures, Reaper minis, and other, chunky ~30mm figures.

Would love to see some photos of these guys alongside other manufacturers' figures.

Looking forward to this winter!

I play...

Sigh.

Who am I kidding? I only paint these days...

Fallout is only going to get HIPS for important, mass produced stuff. Like Gary.

I can provide a picture of a muscled dude from Fallout next to a muscled dude from Age of Sigmar.

Modiphius uses 32mm realistic scale (which translates to 1:50 scale) for Star Trek, Fallout and as confirmed on the last page also for Elder Scrolls with proportions only as exaggerated as production of the physical model requires. The models are very fine, with small heads and gear that stay close to realistic proportions.

I'm changing my demands. I still want HIPS power armor sprues, but every plastic sprue produced for Fallout must also contain a bonus Gary.

I also demand an Elder Scrolls rule that models that survive a giant's attack or a Fus Ro Dah are knocked back straight to the board edge.

Also, two dozen pizzas, a bowl of brown M&Ms, and a vertibird on the roof within the hour.

We were thinking you have to throw them in the air and see if they land back on the board.

If we do indeed get the 'other' format then it would probably go a long way to help customisation of the 'player' characters. The modularity of the kits is what I'm most curious about. Hopefully it's not limited to, say, a male and female of each race but more based on armour or archetypes.

E.g. there's a set with Ebony armour or Leather but with separate heads (and tails as required). Wouldn't resent having upgrade sets of just a variety of heads.

That would be good. Even in resin, with the variety of men and mer in Elder Scrolls upgrade sprues with heads like Fallout got with weapons would greatly help with making your own characters (or followers).

The best part is that the existence of the Fallout weapon sprue proves Modiphius isn't averse to the idea in general.

I said much the same about the Away Team Star Trek got. Really cool models, but having five male and five female poses with a variety of interchangeable heads would provide RPGers with an easy option to make their own character instead of giving you pairs of Vulcans, Andorians and so forth. That's a bit limiting for an RPG group, in my opinion.

Yeah, if I had to pick my biggest complaint with the Fallout miniatures themselves, it would be the lack of modularity/posability. They're absolutely gorgeous as monopose sculptures, but they are not kind to hobby converters.

Plastic or even resin multipart kits for power armor, settlers, raiders, etc. (as well as, given the thread topic, suits of Skyrim armor, swappable race heads, weapons, etc) would really add that customization pizzaz I feel the game(s) is/are lacking. Even the fallout weapon sprues are a bit disappointing, as they're mostly weapons other models are already holding. I was hoping to get super sledges and plasma rifles/pistols to add into my mix.

I'm so glad in the year 2019 these companies can't be bothered to release high quality images of previews, and instead pretend it's some sort of "exclusive" first look while these awful consumer cellphone pictures wind up being the first and most vital impression of new product.

You are correct...I was unimpressed with "Blurryvision" when it premiered in Gladiator and was used in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and I am exactly, if not even more unimpressed with it now. If the miniatures are being displayed at an event, then put up quality pics of them somewhere easily searchable.

To be fair, it did take GW a couple of decades to see this as being a valuable tool...I am sure Modiphius can learn.

I just think it goes to show all the dodgy 'potato' photos of WD and codexii we get are real and not fake leaks,

as there are loads of folk at shows, they've got cameras, time and permission to snap and they still cant take a decent shot

so bob in the warehouse taking a sneaky snack cant be expected to get it right (no matter how frustrating it is)

Nice crisp photos are already shot and will likely be along next week.

It does somewhat take the wind out of events if everything gets shown minutes after a show opens. It’s why I didn’t bother with Warhammer fest this year.

So, wait till Monday and I’m sure the boss will be keen to reveal more.

Hell, I might paint some skeleton archers this weekend and maybe show them if you really behave.

I really love the Imperial mage from what I can see so far.

Didn’t realize how much I want these until I saw them hahaha.

I thought I might feel that way the moment I reinstalled Skyrim.

Agreed on the mage. The thing I like the least about the Legion uniform (in Skyrim) is the helmet. Mage hood certainly fixes that, and I like the pose as well.

Can't wait to get good pictures.

While we wait for Monday to arrive, as promised here is a picture of the starter set Skeleton Archers.

These were a simple drybrush/inkwash job and are not the studio figures or anything, just me messing about.

Still. hopefully it gives some better idea of where the line is going.

Is this the game where Bethesda copied the fluff from D&D almost word for word? Or was that something else?

Agies Grimm:The "Learn to play, bro" mentality is mostly just a way for someone to try to shame you by implying that their metaphorical nerd-wiener is bigger than yours. Which, ironically, I think nerds do even more vehemently than jocks.

Everything is made up and the points don't matter. 40K or Who's Line is it Anyway?

It was just an adventure meant for RPG. However Elder Scrolls is heavily inspired from tabletop RPGs.

So, you're talking about a wargame here...not a boardgame, then ? It sounds like it's kinda a dungeon crawler, but you're also talking about the civil war in Skyrim with 20 miniatures at most, so...skirmish game ?

Skeletons are skeletons. Nothing new nor particularly oustanding here.

I'll hold my breath until I see khajiits, argonians or dwemers.

The point in Skyrim was to make your own character. To me, it's kinda underwhelming to have to play named ones, even if they are known in the video game. Will there be a way to really customize your hero, or are you stuck with the same named characters all the time ?

That was something completely unrelated to Modiphius and apparently wasn't even a thing in the first place. As I understand it from memory: It was a group of Bethesda/Zenimax staff (as I recall) using a D&D source as a template for an internal Elder Scrolls based RPG session they were running for themselves. Someone in the chain didn't really pay attention and thought it was a release/promotion of some kind and posted it on social media. People obviously noticed it was nigh on verbatim a D&D resource and called them out for plagiarism which.... it would have been if had been intended as a public release but it wasn't and got taken down as soon as it was noticed. Obviously that's their own explanation so discount it as whatever but I'm personally inclined to think they wouldn't be that bloody lazy if anything.
