Well, the rumors are true and the models are pretty sweet!
We’ve got Thunderwolves, Tyranofexes and Tervigons, Oh my! Oh, and a plastic Hive Tyrant/Swarmlord, Fenresian Wolves and a slew of finecast. Many older models have been redone in resin such as Ragnar, Ulric, Njal, the Lictor, Deathleaper, etc. We also have some newer models such as the horrendously overpriced Grey Hunter with Wolf Standard ($24? yikes!) a Thunderwolf Lord, and Arjac.
About flippin time.
After all the hoopla with the Chapterhouse law suit and such, it is good to see GW finally made the decision to make money on these kits they’ve doubtlessly been sitting on for agres rather than fight a battle with a tiny miniature manufacturer out of Poland.
As for the models themselves, they look great. I really like the Thunderwolves, although they are a lot less well armored than the independent kits floating around out there. They are very bare in appearance, but still very cool.
The Fenresian Wolves are great, IMO. They are very dynamic models and look excellent.
The Tyranid kits are sweet, and I will certianly be picking up some for my army. The Tervigon is in the middle of giving birth! Yuck, but awesome! The Tyranofex’s gun is suitably fearsome looking. The Hive Tyrant/Swarmlord looks very good too, IMO, and it looks like in the picture you either see a Harpy or the Hive Tyrant cna be used to make a winged version that may very well be usable as a Harpy stand in. About time there, too. The Harpy looks to me to be a very good unit. I will be snagging one of those as well.
In all, a great release coming out and one we here at Frontline are happy to finally be seeing.
