Indeed I did, thank you for the heads up. I'm not much into board game style tabletop, however. I like free-measure the most. We tinker with 15mm systems like Hordes of the Things, but I really like what I'm seeing here. The american market, however, is resistant to 15 mm and most at our local stores buy 28mm rule sets predominantly.

With only a 4' x 4' board, I wish Para Bellum had taken a different scale approach. These sculpts, however, are fantastic tin my eyes and I may still give it a go. Truly lovely work. We'll see who's interested within my group.

@Shrapnelsmile: Indeed- I don't know why the US is so resistant to it, but you're totally right. I'm hoping that ToL can help change that with good looking minis. That's what Im hoping to do in Taipei once I get my hands on the minis. (Note: I'm from the US, came out to Taiwan to live and work)

Another thing to note is that Ill probably magnetize the bottoms of the bases so I can use the minis with multiple systems. The board game style of ToL intrigues me, but I also want to try DBx and HoTT style games.

Thankfully the 15 mm disinterest is starting to shift slowly -- especially among older gamers here. I just played HoTT recently and it was a blast. Since you don't need many figs, I would love to use some of these Conquest minis in HoTT or Kings of War. I do wish Para Bellum all the success they deserve. These are finely crafted models.

Earlobe deep in doo doo

Dunno whether it's American so much as Sci-fi/Fantasy most models are still brought with a vague idea to combine with GW which makes 28mm by far the most popular scale.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

I really don't beleive that "combining with GW" has anything to do with it at all these days. Probably once upon a time, yes but They are irrelevant to games designers now and 28mm was always popular even before GWs earlier dominance.

All that aside... WITH STEEL AND BLOOD!

That starter set looks like something I am going to buy. I really do not need more miniatures. I have no time to paint them. But I want them...

Is it known if they are monopose or multipose miniatures? If they are multipose I might even get more than one box...

That aren't posable multiparts like space marines etc. They are relatively simple in construction with all parls compatible with each other. Not sure how many varients there will be on the final sprues.
That was the compromise. Detailed & affordable for relatively simple construction. What I will say about it though. It makes them easy to put together and paint without any fiddly parts and undercuts.

Are they one piece, or just multi-part single pose like the new GW starters?

Any idea on when we will get to see the bare plastics Davidian? Or what the targeted release date is?

Thanks for all your info.

They are multipart single pose but all the varient parts are compatible. (as mentioned that was the compromise to get 80 models for 80 Euros)

For example, The two spire archers I have, have the same body and left arm. The bow and vanbracer, the armour of the left arm, the heads, the quiver and the right arms are all seperate parts. Of those, the heads, armour and right arm assemblies are different.

so with a 2nd body varient I could make 4 completely different minis by mixig them up...

I havent seen th eplastic sprue yet so cannot coment on how many varients of each component their will be (I'll keep asking though ).

Release date will be 3rd June with the launch co-inciding with the UK Games Expo in Birmingham NEC

Just astounding now.

And first talk of dragons. I really think they'll have something to do with the Dweghom. One of the 4 factions in the first wave release.

This looks fantastic! Hard plastic on sprue made me interested for real. I like the Abomination, but I hope it can be posed a little more dynamically. The pose in the pictures/video is a little boring.

In either case, the lore is a good read so far, and the models are looking great! Will definitely keep my eyes open for this one

Yeah, this is looking amazing all round.

What are the merchant princes, though? I don't think it mentioned them as actual human merchants or something else.

You know I've never noticed talk of The Merchant Princes before. The sound has a very mercenary/free company/privateer ring to it but somethingt with a nobel tone... They aren't one of the 4 planned for initial release (Spire, 100 Kingdoms, Nords, Dweghom) but they may feature in a furture faction

....Rage of Dragons.... that got my attention. Maybe the Dweghom can teach us more :?

Yeah, the few mentions of them and how they've affected things outside the main focus is very intriguing but with the Spire's mentions it's hard to imagine them as regular people. More info is very welcomed.

Dragon wars sounds awesome, more of that too.

Those are some very interesting concept pieces.

They get something like that in to plastic, I will happily support them!

Hm, this is really impressive. An intriguing background, good miniatures, good material, good price, mass battle rules, Cavatore involved...Looks like the beginning of 2018 will already be harsh to my wallet.

Now I wonder what they will propose for the support of the player community...no matter the game, if you are the only player in your town, it will end in a sad way.

I like the art and aesthetic. I like the otherworldy horror vibe of the creepy faction, and that big monster gives off a Kingdom Death vibe (which is a good thing IMO).
