Like the company's 'Regiments' range the Exo-Lords will be released in modular form and there will be numerous options available for heads/helmets, torsos, legs, arms, weapons and equipment. if you notice several of the weapons are without ammo mags they are cast separately and the slot in the weapons is reset allowing for an ammo change (hands are available holding the several different mags). Shown here with a selection of the various heads/helmets that will be available. Shoulder guards have still to be attached.

Those are far, far better than the originals.

I can see much more generic uses for those. I see a bit of fallout in the armour styles for example. But these are better miniatures in their own right now they have moved away from other influences.

Is that actually better?  I mean, yeah, for Marines I guess, but the utility of 8' tall power armor guys outside of Grimdark World is kind of questionable, isn't it?

You either want ‘em that size or you don’t. I don’t mind picking some of these up at Primaris scale despite my lack of interest in that theme for 40K these days. They’re still cool and an improvement on the old examples. Just not to everyone’s tastes, that old chestnut.

Nice.

Science Fiction is full of geneered soldiers, and not all of them look like Ricardo Montalban/Bedict Cumberbatch.

Hrm, they seem ripe for a lot of conversion work. Might make a few mandroids/ cyborgs out of those for Judge Dredd-verse games.

Those faces are amazing....that's some skilled painting.   I can't paint like that, but the sculpting is so nice they'll look good with my hack painting.
