The Rackham range is so characterful, it'd be almost tragic to see them go away.
Hopefully they make tons of sales and start reviving the range, particularily the orcs (so much better than the GW ones).
What were the initial number of editions for the flesh golem and hydra? They only have a handful remaining which means good sales, unless they only casted dozens.
I think it was originally 200 a piece but Legacy were intending to do more limited runs and top up the Cmon levels if they sold really well. Surprised also at the choice in terms of minis and marketing not sure it was the right decision. Afaik
the Mid-Nor Cyclops was supposed to be part of Wave 2 also but that is a no show atm
. Maybe Belial would have been a better choice if they were intending a themed release.
There was Gencon related talk that some of the masters for various CoRag plastics might be re-tooled/updated and cast in resin but that could be a long way off. Some of the later designs were actually quite good and there were many more that never saw release (Dirz especially). Imo
as a starting point for the newer range the plastics were a lot better than the original metals and it was obvious the quality was improving. Bought both de
Vanth and de
Brisis recently (cheap) and have had much fun removing the paint.
Word is that Legacy have committed to six waves initially following which they will assess the feasibility of continuing the project. There will only be a handful (3?) of unseen designs with the rest being re-releases from whatever faction. There will be no dedicated website for at least 5-6 months so how they will assess the markets opinion is anyones guess.
