Warlord new release. Test of honour bandits.
« on: August 24, 2017, 12:59:48 AM »
Found these online.
Game creators said they will be released early september. Will come with game cards .

Gotta say as hit and miss as i find warlord,I really like all of these sculpts!










7 miniatures in the set, I'm sort of hoping it sticks to the current pricing model and will be around 20.
Could be really good for ronin/bushido ect
never trust a horse, they make a commitment to shoes that no animal should make.

Very nice!

I've never played Warlord but I'd love to play with these minis!

Wow those are beautiful and I want them :-* I don't do samauri games but my fertile little mind is hearing "Hey say you Brade-runner!" To get them into a SciFi setting :o
Knowing my luck, I would throw the pin and still be holding the grenade - gulp!

They look very nice, think they may be expensive though

So apparently there are actually 8 in the set, And the one not shown here is the ninja. Figures really, the ninja should stay hidden!

Not if they're bandits. Some of them may be failed samurai, I suppose.

They're out!

Gotta say the 27 price tag is...hmm...well it's 7 more than i was hoping for.
But I do really like the sculpts and will probably pick them up.

Plus they've released the multi bases in packs of 5!

And that ninja's still well hidden. In fact, unless he's a surprise bonus, he's not included.

As for pricing, the bases also seem to be in the premium category, at five for 6. I've just received 16 from an eBay seller, which cost me 8.95 including postage. I'd have bought more if he'd had them.

So the figures in the set were the ones they bought from the previous brand ( wagamesfactory ) that everyone says they are a pain to put together ( plastics ).

Are these plastics, metal, their own new minis , any better than the previous sets ?  Do we know or not yet ?

Metal.

The WGF samurai aren't a pain to put together at all so far. no more so than perry or any other plastic range I've messed around with.
