Seriously, seriously cool move, Artel.

I've only made one order from you, but what I received is some of the best resin I've ever worked with. It's smooth and the details are perfect, with no bubbles on anything visible and only a slight mould line.

I think some other resin manufacturers could learn a thing or two from your production process.

Yeah Artel's resin is hands down the best I've ever worked with.

Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

Well done Artel. You've surpassed yourselves. Big Kudos to whomever sculpted this kit.

And the best part is you can have one of each and have a mixed pair for the next Archon...

That is by far one of the best executed kits I have seen.

If the soldier in that suit could believably be a normal human that would also be a nice proxy for a heavy weapons team in a more technological advanced IG regiment.

I love those exo suits. They'd make great Blackjack proxies for Infinity. I thought they were released some time ago though?

They previewed it last summer IIRC but it was just put up on their facebook page today FWIW.

Literally the day after I placed an order. I'd been bugging them about these guys for a while too.

Guess I'll email them and see if I can get them added to my current order. I really like their look.

I agree they'd make good Blackjack proxies, but their bases are smaller.

Agreed and, yeah, that sucks. He's filling up that 32mm base so I don't see much of an issue with bumping the model up to a 40mm. Looking at a quick image search to refresh my memory, is the blackjack on a 40mm base? I can't tell if it's a custom larger one (like 50mm or 45mm) or just a lower height but it looks bigger. This model will be noticeably smaller though in bulk but that's not really much of an issue with their whole silhouette rules thing.

I think I found a suitable brutal yet scifi sword that I can 3d print to add to the back. Also, 40k has grimdarked the hell out of my tactical common sense as I probably will use a primaris bare head instead.

I already contacted them and they got me sorted. Can't complain!

I'll make sure I've finished painting my Blackjack by the time these arrive and I'll certainly post them up on Youtube once they get here.

Pretty sure the Blackjack is on a 40mm.

Glad to hear it! I took a look at your channel link... and wow... you buy a lot of figs all across the spectrum. Are you playing in dozens of different campaigns/groups and paint like a madman or do you have the most epic pile of shame ever?!?

Ah, ok. That's my favorite Halo game (both single and multiplayer). I was thinking more Live. Die. Repeat/Edge of Tomorrow and Starship Troopers.

Yeah, there is way more of a "Edge of Tomorrow" feel than anything else.

PS: And that's not a bad thing.

I guess I should finally go watch Edge of Tomorrow.

I read All You Need is Kill and Armor almost back to back and they've both kind of gelled together.

It's a fun movie. It's not particularly close to the book but fun nonetheless as a popcorn action flick. I love the practical suit effects and it would have been great if they had done that with Starship Troopers to at least attempt that aspect of the source material.

My only *slight* disappointment is the lack of cool helmets. That's about it.
