... and as expected, they're not much better than any of the other Skinnies.

On worlds dominated by the primitive brute gene, Skinnies displaying psychic potential are often treated with mistrust and suspicion. Forced to gather together in small groups known as cabals for mutual protection, they are capable of dominating lesser brutes with the power of their collective minds, becoming leaders of their tribe. Newly born Skinnie brutes displaying similar talents are either taken into the cabal or cast out of the tribe altogether, often on the whim of the ruling psychics. Those who are thrown into the wilderness and survive to adulthood will often be drawn together, forming their own cabal, albeit one without a tribe to rule over. Occasionally, they return to their original homes, challenging the ruling cabal for leadership in a psychic duel to the death.

This box set contains four members of the Skinnie Cabal.

Price: $19.95
Distributor on sale date: 7th August 2006


Also note it seems like the Forth releases (originally scheduled for September, I believe) are being delayed.  At present it is supposedly for only a few weeks, but they have been removed from the release schedule.

Either these minis have been made and finished months in advance so that feedback at this stage cannot be implimented, or Mongoose just doesn't care what people think of their Skinnie line, 'cause these are horrible.

Somehow, they remind me of the Tau etherals... don't ask me why.

But seriously, they aren't badly sculpted, they are just stupid looking, a shame really.
To proof that: is that a smiley-button on the guy far left? I think so...

*Sigh* The skinny line is good for a laugh, but I worry that it misrepresents the art of miniature making to the larger artistic community. I mean- imagine what someone would think of our hobby if these were the first models they saw!

But without the space barbells......  Some figs just inspire certain songs be played when placed on the table.  I agree with hubcap, these make me think of ABBA's Dancing Queen.......

I have to agree that they're not bad sculpts... they just look stupid!

"P.S. I can imagine that these Human troopers are a little bit suprised/disturbed to see these guys gayly dancing round the corner..."

I just got this mental image of a bunch of guys walking down any old street when suddenly those four come cavorting around the corner dancing, skipping and singing.

Well, come on, it could be worse, though.
