I get that this is Dakka's hobby horse until the next release but it's simply false. Only the legs are the same so you can easily make 3-4 different poses.


Sorry but different weapon ain't different pose.

Arms in different positions are, though. Same with the heads. I find them less clone-like than Knights.

I am more forgiving of "clones" when the model is a machine, created from ancient STCs.

When it is a model of a living being, the duplicity in the posing, even "only the legs" is much more obvious and jarring. Particularly when the legs are bare or covered in non-rigid materials.

I honestly thought the giant kit had been recut, but I see the old rectangle base is still on the sprues,

Man, all people walk the same. They all feel samey to me.

At least Megargants can have sandals or go barefoot. I'd understand more feet options, but this exact set is not practical for new legs.

It would if gw had done what they did with dominus knight. That was new set that gave new leg pose to deal with.

Instead we get upgrade sprue as convinient excuse to up box price so getting gate breaker etc will be more expensive.

No?

Dominus-class are a different kind of Knights, so you would need Mega-Mega-Gargants (or something along the lines) to make something similar.

Except legs fit just fine

Only reason you can tell not from same kit is different pose.

And Dominus-class are quite longer. And the kneepads are not quite visible. And the sides.

Those are quite different legs.

I really hope GW does a bundle discount.


Otherwise that expansion is going to fall flat on its face when the models for it alone cost more than Cursed City does right now (GW are making noise that its coming back, but its easily for sale at a range of 3rd party stores right now).

That's the big problem I see, no included models and no discount over GW's model retail is going to kill it - and I really don't want it dead. I want to see CC do well and for the Quest game concept to be expanded. I had high hopes considering GW blended this game with a lot of core models for Soulblight and likely many of those light heroes will fit into Cities of Sigmar. Esp when they also relented on the silly idea of making you take all the CC heroes in one 700 point block and instead broke them up to be their own models.

I'm not sure I'd get over the shock of seeing that, but I find it more likely I'll have something to laugh about in the coming days.

Sad as that is. The things GW could do with Warhammer Quest if they weren't so busy being GW.

Well, as a disciplined fighting force, no one can accuse any Mega-Gargant of not marching in step.

I like that they use the same artwork three times in that article. That is so much in the same spirit as the reused legs.

Also has this nice group picture. Don't worry, you'll never notice there's only one leg pose!

Yeah, they did a really good job with the posing and camera angle. Obviously it sticks out more in actual gameplay but ultimately the monopose legs aren't THAT bad. A downside but not a crippling one.

I really like that this set of skeletons aren't too divorced from the look of the current grave guard. The Cursed City skeletons, while cool looking, in no way match up with the unfortunately discontinued VC skeletons.

Might have to pick them up, as the warband as a whole are pretty nice.

I agree regarding the old skellies, but between CC and last year's SBGL Battleforce, most SBGL players are already fielding armies with the new ones. Its the old GG that feel out of place.

I don't care about this mini game, but if offered 10 man boxes of these to replace the current GG for AoS, I'm down.

If anything, the three Mega-Gargants on front having the exact same right arm are far more noticeable then having the same legs.

1.- Being human-like, the point of focus we're naturally drawn is above the waist, towards the face and chest.
2- Unlike the regular 40K Knights, they have at the very least they have twice the amount of feet option.
3.- If you're drawn are legs and/or feet, well, you do you, my sibling in Christ, we all have our likings.

It's that massive, bare expanse of thigh that draws the eye... Maybe if they had some bits of bling to cover that, in the same way they have different clothing and decorations on other parts of the body, the similarities would be dulled.

Yeah, but according to the 40K crowd, being able to swivel the waist means it's posable.

No, but you can cut the legs by the knee and re-pose them and anything you do gets hidden by armour

so a very easy conversion compared to re-posing the legs on the Gargant
