Why are you so needy Giraffe!!?!!
In all honesty I have so many judges I can't see me buying anymore except lawgivers, I don't mind the differences between foundry mongoose and even citadel.

I sold my foundry judges to White Knight (I think). I have the converted Urban judges still.

To be fair most of the original artwork was anything but consistant. Compare Ezquera with Dillon.

Although I agree that the aesthetic is ruined by a mishmash of sculpting styles within the same group of figures on the table top.

Ezquerra didnít draw one figure in a strip while Dillon drew everything else. Artists have styles, but are consistent within the strip and thatís what I want on the table.

I was hoping for a classic lawmaster, not that the pictured one looks bad. The rest look ok to me and the fact they are not being kickstarted means they should be readily available.

As far as I can see, the Judges in that pic are the only ones from WG's new range... the rest would be from Andy's project, IIRC, although those are magnificent in their own right, and congratulations on getting your stuff featured in the newsletter, Andy!

The Villains pack is a little odd in terms of composition ...why have a single dark judge...a single member of the angel gang? It works as a teaser release I guess, but as a gamer youíd want the others so will a future wave have the other 3 dark judges as a pack, or 4 figure pack which means you end up with a duplicate?

Despite this oddity, Iím pleased with the sculpts, and hope the launch is a real success, so that it leads to a healthy schedule of additional releases.

Yeah, that is really odd. It doesn't even make sense if they are targeting collectors not gamers as you would expect a 'judge Child set', 'The Dark Judges', 'Apocalypse war characters' etc
I really do like them though,

I think it's quite clever - a lot of longtime fans will have several Death and Orlok minis (OK, me), maybe even an Oola Blint. But Raider and Homer Blint? I dont think they've ever been made before. See also the judge with his helmet respirator down... that's hitting the hardcore collector where it hurts!

Preorders are up and WLG disappoints once again.

The only way to preorder the entire miniatures line is to also preorder the Collector's Edition rulebook, which is three times as expensive as the normal rulebook. PLUS the normal rulebook is already included in the Starter Box.

I emailed WLG and they very quickly responded, confirming that there are no plans to offer preorders without the Collector's Edition:
Quote
For the period of the pre-order, the only bundles available are those with the Collector's Edition rulebook.

However, please keep an eye on the newsletter and website, as there is the possibility that other bundles may be added, although I Cannot confirm this at the present time.

Anyone who has purchased a rulebook from Warlord knows it would be totally foolish to shell out for a premium edition, considering the amount of errors they consistently send to the printers. Sometimes, important mechanics are even printed completely wrong -- such as in the recent release of SPQR.

This release has been a disaster, from the lack of communications, the fact there still isn't any detail about the game itself, and now the attempt to foist an overpriced item on the customers most likely to be excited about the product line.

The product itself may be excellent, and I like the look of the minis and I like the SD ruleset, but marketing at WLG needs an overhaul.

Plus, they removed the ability to pay via paypal. Which strikes me as a bit odd.  :-[

I agree on the topic of the special edition rulebook though. It was the same with Konflikt 47, where you basically got 2 rulebooks, for the price of 3.
