I doubt anyone wants that discussion to continue ^^

I like the Aestupids. The monsters have a kinda Slaaneshi feel to me, the first one kinda makes me think of the original Keeper of Secrets. Might just be me though :)

The new Flame-grilled Warcry faction looks cool for the most part. A couple of bad sculpts but a bunch of really nice ones. Might buy a box if I can sustain enthusiasm until lockdown is over.

I think they do and I do think that is deliberate. Slaanesh had all of their souls and they were drawn out of him/her/them

I like the bonsai trees (but not the bonsai mountains).

Why does the one with the trees have a flat paper mask over his/her/its face?

Also it is a very flat and static pose.

Because nothing says Elf like bull horns, massive hammers and a giant minotaur carrying little mountains on its shoulders.

I've never seen an elf but if someone told me they wore helmets with bull horns, carried massive hammers and created giant minotaur avatars of the mountains, I'd say fair enough.

I am wishing I'd got round to sculpting the big armoured fairies wearing silly tall horned helmets that I've been scribbling in my sketchbook for the past year and a half, though.

I generally do not like elves, but I really like how over the top this new faction is.  lol

Now I'm never going to see them as anything else. Good thing I wasn't going to buy them anyway

The Aestupelfs with the two handed hammers would really have to practice not hitting their horns every swing..

"no,no,no swing the hammers from side to side or underarm in combat, never up and down!!"

"remember your balls and wickets!, Croquet for the Croquet God!!!"

I think they are nerf safety foam, they are capped as well for safety see?


All silliness aside, I'm not a huge fan either. I do like seeing them trying something a bit different? if something along this line was made 30 years ago they would be that obscure unit some people go wild for.

That's interesting idea, They are nicely detailed, etc, but a bit to far out maybe,

Still they are some sort of elite?  special rules for crutch shots?

So  maybe others units will continue to be less horny?

or maybe that's how they carry their bows when not using them?

With those Aelves I would agree that the shark has been jumped.

Makes me wonder what they will come up with for the relaunch of Warhammer Fantasy. By the look of the latest Middle Earth minis I am expecting at the very least exaggerated, heroic blocky sculpts. The new plastic Eomer looks like he has the physique of the Rock and the characters faces seem to look a lot less like the actors in the movies. More like Clone Wars animation styled features.

I'm not a GW-basher and I liked the recent cavalry and infantry. But this is really beyond me.

This is what have come to expect though: sometimes what they make is impressively good, some things are impressively ..ehm.. not my taste.
