I'd been thinking about starting lizardmen with the new AoS stegadon box, I think Mantic might be filling out the army...

Those are nice elementals indeed! Possibly the best I have ever come across.

And I'm a big fan of models I can paint in minutes...

Prime white, slop some Space Wolves Gray Contrast Paint on there...

BATTLE WORTHY!

Sigh.

Who am I kidding? I only paint these days...

Honestly, getting KoW armies done, rather than forever half-finished has made me really embrace, "good enough" simple schemes, and cheats. From three feet away, even a simply painted mass-battles army looks incredible anyway.

Models that can look great in 1, 2, 3, etc... colors? OK!!!

I'm not a huge fan of those Air Elementals but they're a really difficult concept to execute on properly.

The elf drakon riders are pretty cool though! Massive improvement on the old models.

Heh. I remember one of my friends presenting me a unit of 6 empty bases and saying they are Air Elementals. I said "but they're just bases, there's no miniature on them". And he answered "well yeah, you can't see air, it's invisible". I laughed.

Joke aside, there's no good or bad Air Elemental, since they can litterally take any shape after all. This one is as good as another.

Liking the air elementals, a lot of possible uses for them.

Oh they're really great for dust cleaning at home. Just keep the windows open.

Ah, with those I can finally finish my Force of Nature "Army of the Four Elements". Only Elementals and "druids".

I dunno, I feel like for those prices I want to get higher quality miniatures. Though the unit of airs is solid thanks to those dynamic poses as compared to offerings from reaper or rpg minis.

Eh, regiment prices seem fine, especially considering the market, and especially considering how good dracons are in the game. And especially considering that Mantic is using more and more of their quite good resin, even over metal (a material I'm pretty burned out on myself). As for the big'uns, they tend to be pretty huge, so it's ok. And we live in a world where Dub charges MUCH more for enormous plastic heroes, so big ol' shrug.

Also re: the air elementals, these - in particular the unit - are the best of their kind I know of, and I've done a lot of elemental research, including 3D sculptors. Getting more than one good elemental sculpt for unit purposes is rough, especially if you don't want just one giant one. Plus air elemental models are rarely very good, or just come in one big tornado man dude guy mode.

There's sums nice stuff in there, but it looks like two different ranges that have been joined together.

The Tyrants are nice, and I love the big lizard thing.

Resin by the look of it they are using the existing HIPS kit and adding upgrades in metal or resin depending on the kit.

Naw, Puppets War Infant Demonic Elementals are better sculpts, cheaper and faster to clean up I'm not hurting for Sprites but Mantic is, as far as 100% Mantic goes (so I'm settling on 85%)
