Time for the "Big Nasty", Obsidius Mallex and his Bodyguards.  Really enjoyed working on the big fella, more images and words from me over on my blog:

That looks nice, although I still think I prefer the original sculpt.  It's got more of the "guy in monster costume" vibe to it.

Looking forward to the big expansion that's coming out?  I'm hoping BF sees more long-term support than Silver Tower did.

The original does have a certain charm about it.
Yes and no with the expansion, yes for playing and no due to the paint queue as I'm moving on to painting Core Space next.

Love the Ambull, the blue-black and red combo is very nice.

Nice job, I like the sculpt myself. You can clearly see the origins but I lije the new direction.

What about the expansion? Is it worth it beyond the Ambull?

Looking forward to seeing your pjs on the core space stuff, I was sorely temted by that KS but resisred in ghe end.

What do you think of the quality of the core space figs? Are they worth picking up? And is the game any good?

The expansion gives you another quest (like a stronghold run basically) but it also allows to to integrate the Ambull into standard games so I'd say it's pretty decent (and the fact you can use them in 40k as well).

The Core Space minis are really solid for PVC and I'm more than happy with them but I wasn't expecting resin level quality.  Though I haven't play the game myself (not until the minis are painted) I've seen and enough to know it's a belter, a great sandbox game.

I prefer the classic ambull, but you did a hell of a job on the new one!
