Looks nice.
But the thing I don't get, is why does it always have to be a usable, in-game model?
And, why is it always a Merc or Minion model?

I cancelled my sub last month because of this. I was hoping to see more models that were for the hobby side.
And, I was hoping to see some more creative things like the con stuff - more factions, more cool models and takes on a theme.

The Eiryss is nice. But another Merc model is getting tired. I'd like to see what they can do with the other factions.

As a guess,

1. usable models sell
2. merc/minions have the widest uses

They sure are. This "poster" is a much more attractive as a promo for a faction. maybe they will put it on some book cover... but a full size poster would be much better! In fact, it is tempting me to at least consider a model or two from this range.

Oh I understand that they're going for broadest appeal from the dedicated fan base.
I was just hoping that Minicrate would have been something for everyone that wasn't a dedicated fan.

Official concept for the Retribution of Scyrah Battle Engine The Trident

Dawnguard Trident: The Trident is a telekinetic Dawnguard manned flying tank. It has three slightly modified thresher cannons. The goal for this model is to bring a rather large amount of ranged fire power along side some utility. We have intentionally tied both of these ideas into the same resource making the player choose between utility or additional fire power. It should be durable but not incredibly so.

I would also like to mention that because of how the nature of the Retribution CID came about, this model will NOT follow the normal release pattern for CID cycles. Normally the new models are released about 3 months after the cycle. The Trident will be released farther out than that. We decided to test it's rules early and with these other options so players could talk about the interactions with this model in mind.

So have PP officially said that Black anchor is main target for Faction 'secondary' battle engines? I assume this Dawnguard Trident will be on there, and we've got at least 3 on there currently.

It would make sense, as they may be somewhat of a niche item, but I like that they still make them.

Do we know if there will be more Gargantuans/Collossals on there? I love my Dragodile, but I need some sort of Giant Farrow Gargantuan (Either some kind of Giant Franken-Pig, or perhaps a Piggy version of the Skaven Hellpit Abomination?).

Still wish it was in a more interesting pose, but what with them being giant animated statues, I guess I shouldn't complain too much.

Is this going to be regular Privateer or Black Anchor?

I really don't know how to feel about the new Skorne Battle Engine. It is exactly a giant Ancestral Guardian.... and that is all.

I think I would like it more if it was stepping down from a podium or something. Something to sell its size like Talos from Jason and the Argonauts.

Is there any news on what the Chimney is for?
I wish it was held aloft in mimicry of the Statue of Liberty.

Matt Wilson was the lead artist for AEG when L5R launched and many of the early signature pieces were by him. So not completely unrelated. Still out of the blue.

Don't know if some attempt to grab so nostalgia from OG L5R fans? The L5R figures never grabbed me when AEG did their miniature game and doesn't look like these will either.

Looks like Togashi, the clan champion.

It's important to remember the PP guys are gamers. They get hooked on Hearthstone and Overwatch and whatever else. They hang out at cons and play games with the community. My guess is as much as anything else, they've just got the L5R bug going around the office during lunch breaks.
