So if you bought say, $500 worth of stuff, would you get 10 of those, or would you get an assortment of different ones?

Either way looks excellent, definitely want to get at least one.

You'd get 10 of the same one,

Vic's doing a different one each month, I think this is the 3rd or 4th

(but if you were spending that big I'd try a facebook message you might be able to blag a leftover or two since she's a friendly sort)

Anyone know if Victoria's female models would pass as non-heroic? By heroic I mean large arms, legs and heads such as found in GW cadians whereas non-heroic are realistically proportioned. The male arms and legs look slightly smaller than GW cadians but the female one look much smaller. Can anyone make a judgement about if they could pass as non-heroic? I am specifically interested in using the female arms, legs and heads alongside (or potentially even on) Prodos AVP colonial marines. Any comparison pictures would be greatly appreciated!

They are specifically designed to be compatible with GW plastics (although the female components are noticeably smaller, as mentioned).

Therefore they are heroically proportioned, but they do happen to be less bulky than Cadian parts, more similar to the better done modern GW humans.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

That's not a female Commissar! Her boobs aren't hanging out of a low-cut corset, she's not leering suggestively and/or licking her lips, nor is she posed like a 90's Liefeld comic book cover with her arse shoved out at a 90 degree angle to her spine.

Amateur effort, 0/10.

All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Lovely model, but if you look closely, she seems to be blushing

Saw this on the site. Good to see they're back (And this time in resin )and should look awesome mixed with the slouch hats for Aussie themed guard (or burma campaign British empire (or even south african if you wanted to green stuff the hat bands and paint them as fur) theme for that matter):


Spoiler:

African(I think could be from Caribbean or anywhere) soldiers serving in Burma I think.

Been hearing a lot of people on the forum referring to the slouch hats as them as ANZAC themed guard. Which got me thinking about our mates across the ditch, any chance we'll be seeing the likes of these guys?

And wasn't I just looking at their site to make Imperial Navy duelists (count as Crusaders).

So definitely picking this up, I shall give her a peg leg as well and name her Lt Commander Oliva Jade, whose parents got her a commission by bribing a fencing coach to testify she was a champion. Alas she actually is not very good at fencing as her eye, hook and peg leg can attest.

From the latest newsletter:

Now for something special,
For some time I have been working with the talented Jake Schneider to create a new vehicle for Victoria Miniatures. I am thrilled to show the first pics of the 'Kangaroo APC'. This all resin model will be available from Victoria Miniatures in mid 2019.
The model you see here is painted by the amazing James Wappel. If you want a closer look, he will be posting a full painting tutorial on his Blog this week.
I will also have this model on display at the Victoria Miniatures Booth at Adepticon 2019, with a huge collection of painted squads.
Best, V

More tanks is always good news but the effect of the angles makes it look a bit long necked if you get what I mean. The turret would look better flush against the body without the

I have a few of the figures, and they are along the same line as Forgeworld.

Slightly smaller, but not enough to matter. The females look like females alongside the Cadians, and the males look excellent alongside the ranges of both Vic's and GW's. Alongside a Rogue trader guy, they are bigger, alongside a Cadian, they are slightly smaller. (ON PAR with 2d edition metals, but not as robust.)



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

That’s ‘cause it’s not a tank but a turreted APC; the turret has to ride high to accommodate the transport compartment.
