Privateer Press have posted a preview of the Warmachine Dawnguard Destor Thane Cavalry Solo.
This is white metal, correct? If so, man that thing looks very front heavy the way they posed it off the base. I really like the model, definitely the first Retribution model that has even been ok in my view (I just hate the armor design), but I just see it being very front tipsy.
I had a similar problem with the Retribution Destor Cavalry Unit. At least one of those models is only attached to the base by one leg. That’s just madness for a model that size.
I would definitely scoot it back onto the base quite a bit…it’s pretty much always best practice to center a mini onto its base as much as it possible.
As far as being supported by only one leg, that’s a non-issue unless you are taking truly poor care during play and transport or didn’t assemble it badly. We can’t see how it attaches to the base, but assuming it’s a slot/tab like usual, it’s not a problem, the metal is more than strong enough to easily support the weight and when glued in well, the tab will hold much more weight than that w/o issues. Sure does on the Uhlans.
I was hoping this guy had some sort of “heroic” distinguishing banners or something to make him pop out as a character. Then again, he looks just like the painting, so I shouldn’t be too surprised.
