I quite likey, quite clean and understated and not too many fiddly bits.

Agreed that they have a definite RT look to them :-*

I like that they are not too busy. Plenty of opportunities to kitbash these and not a skull emblem in sight. I'll be quite happy to combine these with some Bolt Action WW2 sets for sci fi forces.

Only question I would have is, will those be in boxes of 10 or in boxes of 20?  ???

He also noted the feet.  Appears they do not have the built in base a lot of the frostgrave/northstar stuff has, judging from the picture.

This was the caption for the pic...

We’ve got three boxes lined up for starters – Crew, Mercs, and Troopers. Each box will give you enough bits for 20 figures, with plenty of options for kitting out your crew.
We’ll have more details on each of the boxes closer to release, so watch this space!

They look great, although I suspect a big part of that is the lovely paint job ;)

My concern is that they'll end up being a bit too generic, to the point that they're not characterful enough to please anyone. I think I'd even be happier to see dedicated sprues like 'dockworkers', 'station security' and 'thugs' even if it meant smaller sprues.

Anyway I caved a couple of weeks ago and put this on pre-order, so I am in for the long-haul.

More than for Frostgrave even, as I have always preferred sci-fi over fantasy :D

Those look to be a winner! They are pretty generic, but that means you can detail them in different directions from you bits box.

They'll do for many different games and scenarios. I'm glad they are plain and generic. There certainly aren't enough of that type around  8)

Set phasers to Stun, shoot to KILL men!
That should read "I come in peace..shoot to kill...shot to kill...shoot to kill...I come in peace...shoot to kill men"
I am interested in these.  Very worthwhile first showing.
