No, they have not.

Which in of itself probably says all we need to know.

We may get some (semi official) bad news by the end of this month,

as the CMON webstore is meant to be reopening, and if there are any plans to carry on producing any Dark Age or Wrath of Kings stuff you'd expect them to feature on the new website

sadly since CMON reputedly sold all the remaining stock of both games to Miniature Market I don't think we'll see it

Those Poor Fellows appear some of the nicest "civilian" mob minis I have seen. I can see adapting them to other games as well.

I guess they've failed to get their online shop finished since they were due to relaunch it in August

I wonder if it's coming soon or if it's actually put on the back burner as 'well we might get round to it eventually?

To me, it looks like a different style from Zombicide Classic. While I was not always a big fan of that style, it at least gave the product identity. One knew when one was looking at a Zombiecide figure. This looks like it could be from some Soda Pop-like KS boardgame campaign.

The miniature quality - even on smaller 'human' scaled figures - for Zombicide: Invader was phenomenal.

I wasn't planning on backing Zombicide 2nd Edition, but I may have to rethink that, depending what's on offer.

Really? I found the detail to be pretty bad on the smaller figures. Definitely not on the same level as the HATE miniatures. Many of the survivors' heads are so small that the detail just melts into nothingness.
Maybe you got a good batch and I got a bad batch.

Weren't the HATE figures a bit bigger?

with boardgame PVC the quality of cast really does seem to go up with size, even if it is only a few mm

HATE had really nice models. Green Horde too. Rising Sun as well.

I was a little bummed on some of the survivors I've used with Invader so far.

I like the render. Looks very evocative of Guiton's art. Hopefully the actual production copies look just as clear.

I got to see Highlord Tamburlaine's Z:I minis in person, at least for the expansion game, and they were surprisingly soft in detail. The chainswords were particularly sad.

Ironically, CMON's ASOIAF minis are top notch. CMON are all over the place.

You think so? To me, the sculpt looks much more manga-fied than previous renders based on Guiton's art.

@Bob, even within ASOIAF, you might be surprised by inconsistencies. As someone with multiples of each release to date, I even occasionally find that I have one box of say, Umber Berserkers with dramatically sharper detail then a second box. I genuinely think they have a serious quality control issue to go with their horrific distribution issues. :-p

Interesting!

I didn't look at *everything* but I did look at quite a few of them - and at least for what I received, they looked quite good...

Would you describe their QC more as "eccentric" or "erratic"?

I only have Blood Rage, Rising Sun, and Green Tide, but for me the quality across those three is significantly higher than Bones, at least. Not quite sure what else to compare it to but it's certainly also significantly higher than I've had in minis from non-CMON boardgames.

For me the guns in particular turned out really poorly. A couple of the survivors' pistols are roughly as thick as a piece of paper. They are so thin they are translucent with non existent details.

I'll do that. Glad we talked.

In related commentary, I love the Zombicide Invader game, but will have to sit out Zcide 2 in favor of Ankh.

I've realized lately that all of my hobby spending money has been going to CMON lately...so good job CMON. They've been releasing so much good stuff for ASOIAF that I haven't had the eyes or money for much other stuff.

CMoN store is back in the form of Asmodee webstore.

https://store.us.asmodee.com/search/?q=&p=1&s=0&f=eyJzdHVkaW8iOiBbIkNNT04iXX0%3D&fbclid=IwAR3NdkYB_am5t1MMr2jBl7iu7BQ3J6L5DKDJimyRkPnq_S1vDhc9PpikK18

Looks like Rum and Bones is gone. Wonder when MM will sell off the stock?

I also wonder how long until Asmodee absorbs CMoN completely?

That's a sad store.

No Wrath of Kings of Dark Age. They're gone. Completely.

Wrath of Kings especially makes me sad. I really liked the art design in the game and wished they'd done more with it.

Massive Darkness could've easily taken place in the game world. They could have had WoK models in all sorts of expansions to their fantasy games, sorta like what they did with WoK in Zombicide.

Ah well.

One of the cons of sculpting models with 3D - details can look really crisp on a large render on a computer monitor, but don't always translate well to a small 1" tall model.

I'll keep an eye on Zombicide v2.
