Since they abandoned PVC its been pretty consistent. Non-character heavies have been sprue plastics sold in a 2-3 variant kit. Lights have been a mix of resin and metal, sold in individual packs but sharing a large number of parts. Assuming these follow the same pattern, I think all that would still be in metal would be the Dwarf jacks.

On a side note, I recently picked up Crucible Guard and finding myself really loving PP models again with the shift to resin. I had been happy with the MoW and Troll stuff I'd done, but this is the first time I've done big units of small based models. Really crisp stuff, lots of detail, very few parts. With a decent pair of clippers to clip off spouts I'm finding they assemble really quickly too. Metal seems to stick to resin really well.

Rather like the pirate. Not excessively over-detailed, good aesthetic... except for the heels, of course.

The only Privateer Press minis I've bought since I got my first PVC infantry (which was horrid) has been january's L5R Mini Crate ones. The naga was resin with a metal arm, and Togashi Yokuni was full metal. Both were excellently casted.

They’ve been mixing characters into the plastics as well. Both the recent Cryx kits each make a character.

I'm also wondering if the block adder (I have to call it that) is
not just a resin/metal kit like the Vulcan. The Vulcan and
Railless seemed like they were originally designed for hard
plastic and then got abandoned for resin/metal

Oh wow! I like those new Privateer Merc jack designs. I like the new pirate warcaster as well. She doesn't look like something from the cover of an 80's romance novel, like the other privateer pirates.

Agreed, those are pretty nice. I've built one of every other Privateer jack (excep the Galleon) and while they are nice sculpts, I really don't want to ever build one again. The Freebooter in particular was a lot of horrible pinning.

I'm guessing they just realized that if they waited for the plastic to get done, CG would be without its biggest draw (TANKS!) for probably at least another year and decided to kick them out in resin instead. I don't think there's nearly as pressing of a timeline on a second pirate colossal, so they're probably happier with a "its done when its done" kind of timeline, which is why the Pirate CID got delayed... basically until they found out for sure it was done.

I'm hoping so too! And now with same heavy 'jack chassis they
can release a heavy kit for pirates too, but maybe that's hoping too
much. (Travis who has an idea of what's coming but doesn't
actually work work for privateer press has indicated as much on
facebook).

There's almost no incentive for them to release the Swabber except to fill out a 3 pack heavy kit to replace the Mariner/Freebooter. I don't think they'd bother with it if it wasn't letting them take some of the last metal jacks out of production. Pretty sure all that's left now are the dwarf jacks and some random character jacks.

Never thought I'd see the day where the Terrasaurs looked absolutely bonkers.

Bride of Arkadius and wolf man are both pretty great, don't hate the Lady Wyshnalyrr either.

I love the fact that, with Sylyss, I can now field almost all of my go-to solos with alts for Warmachine or CoI - just gotta hold out for a Dirty Meg.. and maybe a reasonably priced Alexia on eBay.

Is the bride of Arkadius a new character, or just a Gender bend of the existing minion warlock?

Would love to see them gender bend characters like Siege (still bald), the Butcher (no necessarily bald, but with 'crazy hair'), old witch (yes, a creepy old dude), Eiryss, Bagman (same model, just labeled the 'Baggette').
