Agreed, two of them would look so much better with some sort of cyberpunk like helmet. But keeping the one on the left as is, she'll make for an excellent Imperial Knight pilot.

It would have been a nice option but I like the sculpted heads personally. YMMV.

...and with that many parts, they might just have helmets as alternate bits.

Dakka's own Highlord posted a review of the exotroopers. Thanks for putting that up as I was curious as to their relative size. It looks like they're about the size of a Primaris reiver. I like the look and think they'd make a great Starship trooper heavier power armor suit like the cougar.

There really isn't much out there yet on Hydrophilia. I have a starter set I'll try to post soon as well.

My only complaint is I wish they were on 40mms and just a tad bit bigger, but I can also see the point of keeping them under control size- wise.

They gave me a bit of a Starship Trooper vibe as well.

Now if Artel would ever get around to releasing some of the other stuff they've been teasing like Inquisitor Geralt or the Lion...

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Very true on those other models. I'm curious... did you order those before the various worldwide quarantines went into effect? I don't know if Russia enacted one but was wondering if there was a shipping delay.

As for their size, I'm ok with it but I have a different use for them. I can definitely see why you'd want to use them for Blackjacks but I agree they're a bit on the small size (albeit infinity has that silhouette system that you're supposed to use instead of the model anyways if there is a question). For me, I'd end up using them as an RPG character fig so the better they fit on a 25mm base the better it is for me as even 32mm bases don't fit on 1 inch hex or square grid maps.

Someone who knows uniforms help me out, would the lanyards on her shoulder mean she's on the staff of a 2 star general?
Or can/does it have other meanings?

(obviously she's in a fictional military and they can mean anything, but if it were based on the real world...)

Some of these smaller resin makers should really partner up and license or outsource production in the main centers of demand.

I fear that may lead to a dilution of quality. Gripes about late delivery aside, Artel W has some of the best casts out there, always flawless, without flash or bubbles. Perfection.

Lanyards can denote a few different things. Certain units use one as part of their dress uniform by tradition. With real world militaries, it can denote someone who's qualified as a gunner.

A lanyard can also denote a particular medal or award. Germany uses one as part of their marksmanship badge. Netherlands uses it to denote someone who's been knighted as part of the Military Order of William.

On the flip side, Franz Bäke was a one star himself by the end of the war, so a tank commander being on a generals staff isn't very far fetched either.

They hinted that they use multiple different casters back when they were hit with C&D's from GW a few years back and announced they had to stop making most of their model designs. They had a big sale though before the cut off date and the wait back then (which included my first order with them) was several months and they referenced hiring out to multiple casters to fill the backlog faster. I obviously can't comment though if they still do. At this time, though, I suspect for obvious reasons that it's the global pandemic causing the delay rather than just a lack of manpower. If the mail system is shut down (like for so many indy companies in Poland) and your workers can't come into work due to quarantine (and they don't have access to any of the mandatory face masks to use while casting due to a shortage even if they could come in) then it doesn't matter how many partners you have.

FWIW, I have had zero complaints with the quality of what I've gotten with my orders (2 from them direct, one by proxy through a 3rd party) and I'm about the grumpiest of consumer advocate grognards on dakka that there is.

Very nice set of new releases.

Liking the fact that they can be 40K-ized or AOS-ized. Great RPG options there.

I "real world" terms, though, she's wearing a lanyard on an overcoat with no epaulettes or pockets. Which would be a big no-no in every real world military I can think of. Not even Idi Amin committed that particular crime.

Edit, I suddenly realized you were talking about that she was not in dress uniform.


Remember that at least in 40k, IG lore states that you must, even when not in dress uniform, wear your medals prominently at all times. So I'm assuming based on how she's wearing it that this is actually a fourragère, rather than an aiguillette.

I'm guessing that she is intended to round out Cains command staff, and is their interpretation of Lt. Jenit Sulla. Now, just to wait till I have the funds and do a full command briefing diorama with her bursting into the room being her ever so enthusiastic self.

I'm fairly certain Sulla was already done. If we're going with Cain characters, this would most likely be either Mari Magot (who drove a chimera at one point) or, my personal pick, Vivica Sautine, who served as Cains armored commander during the liberation of Perlia.

Ok guys, we have good news and bad news today. Let`s start with bad one:probably, we have a Covid-19 case among us, Artelians. - one of our warehouse workers, who sorting and cleaning bits, packing your orders and doing a lot of other important stuff is very ill, and first tests are positive.

For that reason we should shut our warehouse for a week (at least). So, there will be no shippings at this week and at next one. There were two big dispatchments at 13th and 15th of May, I just received tracking codes for tham and will update info for a bunch orders in the next three days.

Though, a lot of orders still unsent - hope you`ll understand the delay in that circumstances. Stay safe and take care of yourselves and your loved ones. The enemy is at the gate, he`s extremely dangerous and strikes from nowhere. Again - STAY SAFE, as long as you can. Don`t fool around. Please!

Still, we are working and we have a lot of plans for this gakky fraggin` crapload of an year, which, let`s be honest, totally need to be canceled. Year, not plans. So, do you remember the art for Inquisitor Alba Snow we were showing recently. Some of you were asking, who would accompany her. Let me introduce the concepts of her trusted acolytes, The Seven Zwergs! Well, there are not all of them on that art, but we will make seven






Timeline means it's unlikely the worker would have been infected during the prep and shipping for the stuff that went out on 13th & 15th May from the sound of it, but i'd suggest any of you are among the folk receiving the deliveries i'd make sure to take extra care with it and get them into plenty of detergent when they arrive (or quarantine the package for a while then detergent the contents)

Don`t worry, we were taking precautions for not to spread virus even before this case.

Fwiw, the recent CDC reports indicate that the previous laboratory findings of the virus living up to three days on certain surfaces don't hold up in practical community settings. Regardless, with the shipments coming from Mother Russia and likely taking a week or two to reach most countries means that it is a moot point anyways. Unless you ordered a Petri dish with nutrient agar along with your minis, you should be completely fine unless you lick every part of the packaging during unboxing.
