Some quite nice models I don't have but.......there are so many nice models around every month.

If they do a stand alone pack of Devourer's with Tyrants, Huntsmen and Eclispante then that would be exciting - otherwise its a big ask.

Buzz, your girlfriend... Woof!


Do they have a hard limit of 3 good sculpts per starter? I don't understand why they keep packing these sets with sculpts that were pretty mediocre 15+ years ago. I don't get who this is aimed at, other than completionist collectors who want the equivalent of a retrospective of every faction (and those guys probably already have these in metal). Most of the sculpts they selected won't draw in any new players who aren't already on the nostalgia train, and as it isn't a board game, there's going to be a lot of pushback on forcing you to get a bunch of faction boxes you don't want or have use for.

I really want to back this, as I love Confrontation. There are just so many question marks at this point. It is keeping me from being as gung-ho as I wish I could be.

Any have any information about SD? Still haven't heard.

This stuff's going to be sold retail, right? So I guess if you're not sure now, or only want some of the mini's, that's another way to pick up the game...

"And while I'm forgiving of one mishap, this string of incidences suggests the problem is with the project managers, not whom they hire, what materials they are using, what language their backers are using, etc. I do notice that entrepreneurs have more self-confidence than other people, and need it to persevere bad luck and obstacles. But this self-confidence can turn into "do nothing wrong" blindness, which prevents these people from admitting mistakes and improving themselves." -- September 3, 2014

The next preview... There could have been better miniatures, for my own liking, but kinda nice nonetheless.

Probably the best overall selection so far.

Some of the other factions have more than a few "Really, THAT model made the cut?" in them, but the Mid-Nor gang is pretty decent!

It's all going to come down to the material and how the quality of the casts come out...which, of course, we may not know at all during the campaign!

Agreed, its the first one with all decent or better options. They must have lost the molds for Araqsalil the skinner, the organist and collectors/prowlers. Only explanation for not filling that pack with more weak sculpts lol.

I assume they are holding back the good sculpts for fake stretch goals and add-ons.

They said that it would be KS exclusive.

The undead pack is the only one I find interresting as it contains two of the unreleased plastic gouls.

Yeah, I was just about to say that i don't remember those ghouls at all.

Still, an Acheron pack with no Cranes and no Morbid Puppets or Angels?

Some of the guys on French forums are collating the points costs of the released forces so far and they're a little all over the place.

From my limited experience, the Wolfen force is OK, but the Griffin force is too unbalanced. I'm assuming that there will be more added as stretch goals. I'm pretty certain that was brought up in the interviews, so the more choice sculpts could be held back for those, which make sense.

The galaxy is littered with the single-planet graveyards of civilisations which made the economically sensible decision not to explore space.

we can you set the pics of the other sets please? I've only seen the Mid-Nor and the undead fellas so far.
Cheers.

Also I've started taking photos to use as reference for weathering which can be found here. Please send me your photos so they can be found all in one place!!

And the next preview is out.

I've always liked the kelts, so these ones are by far my favorite pack thus far. I'd go so far to claim that these barbarians are up to par to any barbarian range that is being sculpted today.

A pretty good selection there, but fairly obvious what one of their stretch goals will be!

Are they doing a drune pack & some of the oriental gobbos / orges as well?

I would be surprised if they weren't doing the Drunes, as they appeared to be some of the most enjoyed figures of the entire range by many people. However, I am not so sure they will do another goblin pack beside the one they already have. But I would hope they do, because there are some really awesome figures in that particular design for sure.

I thought the Uraken Goblins were their own faction, much like the Orcs of the Behemoth were separate from the Orcs of Bran-O-Kor.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

I don't see how these sculpts are beloved. I made fun of MEdge for delivering better minis.

I think there are two things that stand out to me in terms of the models:

First, and less important, is the painting on them is remarkable. Clean line, outstanding blending, and some great color choices. Just. overall, a wonderful paint style on every one.

But, that is not about the model.

The other point is that they are imaginative. The Wolfen are not your standard werewofl. Zombies are not your standard zombie. The Dwarves of Mid-nor are unlike anything else out there.

So, at least in my opinion, that what has made the Confrontation models stand out and live so long.

I think the aesthetics and design were more loved than the execution in many cases. At the time Confrontation came out, "fantasy" models were pretty generic medieval Europe stock. Then Rackham roared out with the Dirz, bondage werewolves, undead dwarves with a harlequin puppet motif, elementals that weren't just blobs of rock/fire/etc. They were FANTASY more akin to the Neverending Story or Labyrinth than the low fantasy we were used to. Cadwallon in particular sparked my imagination the way Planescape did. It's also worth nothing this was the first time many had seen NMM, so the paint jobs really stood out among the competition too. And every model had a studio job to aspire to or use as inspiration (less a big deal for GW customers I guess).

I think some sculpts have stood up over time and can compare to Mierce sculpts. Others, like the the minotaur that Alpharius posted... oof!
