I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • I really like that!

  • Thank you! It’s a pretty great set of figures and we’ve got more to come!

    Wait.. Thrifty Wargamer is a store stocking these but Four-Color makes them.. but now Thrifty is carrying them? Is this a licensing thing or did we just get a stock notification as a news article?

  • You can put your pitchfork away; this is not a stock notification.

    “You can’t find them anywhere else…”

    We are the only ones releasing and carrying these figures. We have partnered with Four-Color Studios, so you will see more releases like this, through Thrifty Wargamer.

    Thanks!

      @Enrico – I wasn’t trying to be all angry and stuff, the “can’t find them” comment just sounded like a sales pitch.. like they’re hard to find or whatever. If you notice in the talk section I am actually compiling a list of insect warrior guys for a future project so I am particularly interested ;P

      • Cool! I couldn’t see your full list on the forum, but if you’re looking for insect warriors these should fit the bill. Contact me if you need more info: [email protected]

        I don’t know what genre you are planning on playing, but I think these guys would work great with some sci-fi pistol swaps as well. Hmmmm? Might be a good idea for a new arm set actually. (No promises. I literally just thought of that.)

        On that note, if I can plug someone else’s stuff too, Acheson’s Wormic Warriors are awesome! Catepillars with rayguns, what could be better?

          I am not 100% sure what direction I want to go. I write rules for stuff but I also am always keen to find other uses for things. At this point it’s “I want to build an insect army” and as I fill it in I’ll figure out what it will be. I’ve leaned towards “counts as Eldar” to use as a Tau ally in 40k but have also considered a homebrew army list for Warpath. Mantic has a line that came out with Deadzone that is somewhat insect-y too.. and it has jetbike type things..

          Back to this particular product.. These guys strike me as a tad bulky and would likely fit into something of an elite or specialized unit (heavier armor and stronger stats but smaller unit size possibly).
          I hope you consider doing the following with them.. melee, short range, long range, and some exotic weapons to boot. If not, I can understand, but the flexibility would be very helpful in finding a home for the bodies.
          If you’re open to feedback on the ones above.. I like the disc thing but the knife thing is a little too “human”.. I would love something that seems more natural or at least more alien (ie a mantis type claw or a weird pincer.. really anything). I am a concept artist and would love to collab with you in fleshing this out if you’re serious about it.

          • Thanks for the feedback. I like your ideas. Right now the kit comes with 9 unique arms. New sets of arms would be possible in the future, but it will depend on how demand is for the current kit. These are definitely geared towards sword & sorcery fantasy, but I could see them with a set of sci-fi arms and it being cool (very Barsoom like). We have some more figures on the way, but revisiting this at some point would be great.
