I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I don’t care much for the look of the individual models, but I’m pretty happy to see Mantic finally release something that’s not just “inspired from” GW.

      talking to them during the Deadzone KS, they really do want to get away from only being seen as “that GW knockoff”. Asterians and Rebs and really even the Plague guys from Deadzone are also moving away from this stereotype.

    Heheh – have to say I was thinking the same thing. In terms of sculpts, I’m really liking the Paladins & men-at-arms – well-proportioned models. The knights look too small on their steeds but perhaps I’m used to models with steeds which are actually too small?

    The angel guys just look wrong to me – legs too long, heads too small. The leader guy looks better but to me, the armour on the wings doesn’t match the intricacy of the rest of the armour – makes them look too fat and bulbous. Panther cavalry just looks dumb – anyway everyone knows Red elk cavalry is the way forward ^^.
