They're all good and all so very similar - variations on the theme obviously. I think it's the Gamezone one that's most familiar to me.

I was in, but all this talk about the lousy material has me hesitant. I did break out all my stashed away Celtos and my GameZone Feg though!

 Not sure what the material is like but it is Slaine ;).

 We might not get another chance of getting anything like this in the future.From what they have shown so far it will be off to a very good start.Not long to go now until the pre-order goes live at 3 pm.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind resin all that much (although I still prefer metal), but I am a bit wary of "Warlord Resin" in that I had an item presumably made from it softening a plastic base I attached it to. Also got burned a couple of times last year with 3d-printed resin items (unrelated, obviously) so may be unduly skeptical.

I got the ex-Fantasy Forge Celts bundle when Northstar re-released those, got almost all of the Foundry Slaíne minis before they were discontinued and will very likely get some of these new minis (and possibly the boxed game), but I'll wait how this resin behaves for a couple of months before investing more heavily into it.

Overall I like the minis...even though one of the Earth Tribe warriors looks to be punching himself in the nuts...or maybe it's just the angle the photo was shot in. I'd definitely watch a battle report.

Mostly though it just makes me wish Brigade would do something with Celtos.

They look interesting but would have preferred metal miniatures although I like the look and design of the miniatures.

Bit expensive too looking at the prices of the miniatures but most likely available online at -20%

Another alternative source of similar miniatures are these from Alternative Armies

Some figs are pretty cool, some not so but I'll try and see if my FLGS can preorder the all-in launch bundle. Saves additional costs S/H. customs and VAT charges because, well, in theory DDP should work but yeah, real world experiences say something different. Also, they choose the courier and if you're unlucky UPS will charge an additional 13-15 euro handling fee...

Shame it's resin... don't mind it for larger minis and scenery type stuff but I've broken too many (of the few I have) to really jump on this. Shame as they look great. Celtos minis from Brigade still rock though and I do have the few old Foundry ones.

@Deothar, I need that Hordes mini though!

 Still got loads of the Celtos miniatures range.

 Link for the Hordes miniature Dave ;).

Of course, if we can give Nick enough nudges, Northstar might just re-release these lovely babies again. There's 'perfect' and then there's 'damn perfect'.

 They are very nice figures sculpted by Roy Eastland.Wish he was still sculpting instead of Teaching.The shield designs are nice on the Celts.
