Cynwall (high elves), Ophidians, Cadwallon, Drune, Asian Goblins, fat live dorfs, mercs/elementals,
Asian goblins were not a separate army so I don't think they will be there at the start.

I feel like the Orc pack may be the first pack with all good miniatures. All winners.

Yes, but it is REALLY hard to imagine them looking good in "PVC".

I'm ready to be pleasantly surprised though, of course!

Indeed!

Still, always good to see them again!

I'm thinking a lot of my Mierce Darklands miniatures might see the table in some nice counts-as action in Confrontation too.

I think you will find that the majority of the sculpts have aged a lot better than you think. In my experience they match up quite well with more modern sculpts, and probably have a lower bad:good model ratio than most modern lines. I find them very good to paint myself. Bear in mind that many of the paint jobs in the photos are almost 20 years old, and so don't really show off the models the way a more recent professional could.
Here's a few comparison shots from my gallery. I may be pretty biased, but I would say the Rackham models are very nice compared to their compatriots.
Spoiler:






I share the concern about how well they will translate to PVC, but if they can pull off BloodRage levels of quality, these will be very nice models indeed.

Actually Corvus Belli is the first company to finally reach the level of detail in metal miniatures across their whole range Rackham had in its latter years.

What makes me wonder...

Until now we have only seen reused art and pictures from Rackham. We have not seen anything regarding the new stuff, which is, so close to the KS very strange. We have not even seen renders or pictures of the cleaned up miniatures they want to scan.

At this point in other Kickstarters, most miniature based projects will have renders and prototypes to show. They are scheduled to launch sometime next month, which is already a month past their originally scheduled start of first quarter this year.

My worries might be pointless once the KS starts if they show exactly what they will be delivering. But, they have not instilled any confidence that they have ever produced a single model. We have not seen -one- miniature that Sans Detour has had a hand in making. As for producing on the level of Blood Rage or Mythic Battles - I don't think it is possible at the price point they are asking. Straight out impossible. I can see a Relic Knights style disaster happening at best if they continue to promise the current price point they are.

If it goes on like this my feelings say: disaster like Robotech.
And sadly most of the times my feelings are right...

Some folks just dont like the aesthetic, personally I love Confrontations miniatures and find them in every way vastly superior to anything GW or FW have ever done.

I love the Tir-na-bor stuff...

Esp. the 'bronze' and 'thermo' themed minis.

Dirz, Tir-na-bor, Mid-nor, Wolfen ('good' and 'bad') - bring it on!!!

So far, it looks like they're keeping the Clan boxes separate. Hopefully that means they'll be re-released separately? (A man can dream ... I've got the Wolfen and Tir-Na_bor Clans, but sadly missed the Goblin pirates one)

Is that one of the old plastic pre-paints? I don't recognize the dirz model. Looks like a PVC one piece from the way its posed.

At least the Master of Carnage got in the Devourers. I like that model.

Archers would've been nice as they're ridiculously over priced on the after market.

Ophidians too. The Apostates were awesome sculpts. Still are in fact!

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

Not too impressed by the selection of the Devourers, either. My hope now goes solely to the Drunes. I dont see how they can fail there, though, as the entire line is really good.

I kinda like this selection. Good job here. Too bad several other of the factions are kinda lacking.

Hah! The got the sausage guard! Love that dude.

The Drunes should be a slam dunk. There's like only a few weak sculpts in the faction.

Loved Confrontation 3 (and 3.5, I suppose), so hoping that this whole thing brings back something close.

A bunch of bland factions have been posted, but wasnt excited enough to post them here. Have been waiting for the Drunes, and finally they dropped. Good stuff.

What 'bland factions' were posted?

And I suppose this is all on...their Facebook page?

EDIT:

Bland?

Ha!


(Nice!)

(OK, the Lions are kind of bland...)

(Definitely not bland!)

(OK, these Elves are kind of bland too!)

Turns out that you were...half right!
