Frontline Gamer Reviews Ax Factions Gilded Saint Dragon Hunter

Frontline Gamer has a review up of one of the new Ax Faction models, the Gilded Saint Dragon Hunter.
Note: While you can't really tell from the blister packaging picture below, the model is a bare-chested woman and you'll see the artwork and a better look at the model in the article. So you're forewarned if you're looking at this at work or whatever.



From the review:

No third person for this one. I very nearly considered not posting this review, but I felt the issues it raised for me are worthy of airing... so here is my review. I'd be genuinely interested in what people think. Peace out!

Brigade Models Victorian SF Sale

Brigade Models is having themselves a sale. Who doesn't like saving money?

It's summertime, so glorious weather, barbecues, cricket on the green
... or if you're in the UK this year, thunderstorms, hail, floods,
umbrellas ...

And it's also time for the Brigade summer sale season. Like last year
we'll be running several week-long themed sales, each covering a subset
of our ranges (this just makes things more manageable and ensures we
don't get swamped by the demand !).

Our first sale covers our two Victorian SF ranges, the ever-popular
Aeronef and Land Ironclads. From today (Friday 29th) for one week (until
Friday 6th July) all models and packs in both ranges are 15% off.

BaneLegions regrettably posts price increase

BaneLegions didn't want to do it, but they've got a price hike on the way.

Well, my lovely lords and ladies, it had to happen at some point. The rising costs of manufacturing high-quality polyurethane resin miniatures have forced our hand, and although that’s not the only reason we must increase prices on some of our miniatures, it’s the most onerous one. Thus, I’m afraid we must pass these rising costs onto you, our valued customers, for which we do apologise. Necessary evils may well be necessary, but they’re also evil.

This price increase will occur next Friday, the 6th of July, and so you have a week to get hold of miniatures you were thinking about getting at the old prices, so get ordering!

On the upside, too, it is really only the BaneLords that are increasing in price and a couple of miniatures – notably Magágg and Talos – will actually reduce in price, thanks to re-moulding them more efficiently, so it’s not all bad; and you can still take advantage of Maelstrom Games‘ superb Summer Sale (16% off UK RRP) until Monday night, too!

I had to finish up a project and get it to the printer so we can have it well within the timing for GenCon. But, I'll make good on it today with a double post of hotness. Hopefully you'll feel good about it :-)

This morning is what would have been yesterdays posted models. Oh yeah!
