Very cool Laney. What 'worries' me is that the kit does not includes 'arms' nor 'heads' ... which means that they could end up looking with weird stubs for arms. The backpacks are HORRIBLE... but you guys showed that they are easy to make.

I definitely will put this on my list to do. THANKS for sharing!

I don't think that's a problem Mord - the pic I posted shows the kits with regular 40k heads and arms (not to mention forgeworld weapons). So they look like the proportions in some of the art work for 40k.

I think the idea is that this promotes the sales of Warhammer kit (at least in theory), because you must have arms and heads from their range - thus avoiding any suggestion that they are stealing business from GW. I don't know the legalities of it (nor do I care).

I'd probably just use regular backpacks or use parts from the regular ones to '40k' the backpack.

Cheers Laney:D

As long as they don't call it something that has to do with GW and their molds are not just scaled up copies of the GW product as far as I can see from a copyright standpoint (which by this point it looks like they are finally starting to get) They should be Golden. I mean look at the eldar models they have those are full out ripoffs of GW kits but they are stuff GW doesn't make aka a Farseer with riding legs for the jetbike.

I agree Dysturbed. They (imho) need to be more aware, but they have definitely got it with the Knight Praetorius set. The Eldar are pretty good sculpts however (I like the striking scorpion guy and they have manshees coming out at some point too).

@Arachas: They are out 5th March (so it's a preorder) and they will fill on a first come first served basis - so expect a little wait behind the vast number of customers from Dakka Dakka etc. But just over $20 (plus postage) and no work - yay!

I NEED truescale Marines for Death Squads, no matter what. I was anticipating having to buy a Terminator squad box for the bits AND spend countless hours sculpting. And now I can just ORDER them... *faints*

I feel the same way... One day I may TRY to make a true-scale Marine... but I rather buy the parts. My GS skills are minimalistic (except for my expertise with asses... Rolling Eyes ) so these bitz are the thing for me!

i'm going to use some of those as Stealh siuts, pathfinders or auxiliaries for mu tau army; great miniatures, in scale (i hope so...), on the other hand they're full metal...

and there's a lot more...

Infinity models are so pretty it hurts. But their price hurts, too...

Mantic games has already been metioned here and they have a new toy(s) - "Veer-myn" a race of space-rats Smile How cool is that? Very Happy


(not so detailed picture, but these are really pre-release pics). It somehow connected to this game they are creating: Project Pandora - Grim Cargo

They also have some interesting sci-fi orcs: Warpath - Marauders


Sci-fi dwarves: Warpath - Forge Fathers


And also 'umies that hadalready been mentioned in this topic (so just a reminder Wink ): Warpath - Corporation


And the best thing: THEY ARE CHEAP!!!

Have to say, I like the stuff mantic games is doing. But the human corporation models don't look quite right to me...I dunno. It'd be good to see them in person.

Those space rats look very cool - Clan Skryre all the way!

Another soon to be true scale provider... http://www.warsmithminiatures.co.uk/

This guy is really good (check our his thread on Dakka Dakka) http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/434405.page

You are right. Proportions of Corporations soldiers are a little weird. It doesn't matter when it comes to alies but humas should have the right size and proportion, otherwise people will notice. I actually had the same feeling about their elves... They have many interesting ideas (both corporation and elves) but the sculpt is killing it. Corporation models look a little bit stiff and their legs are too thing and too short, I think. But it's still an interesting alternative to GW models - especially price-wise.

The space rats woud make for a cool Clan Skryre army too (cheaper than buying GW jezzails!).

Warsmith is no longer producing truescale marines (cease and desist from GW I believe) - shame because they looked ace.

Does anyone know if the Vermyn are plastic or metal or if possible you can kit bash them with Warhammer Fantasy Skaven?

the above WWI Germaic Goblins are from Black Hat Miniatures they were designed to be used against:




These WWI Halflings can be found here Hasslefree Miniatures

They make me want to get a WWI Imperial Guard Halfling squad to fight against a Grot WWI squad.
