Hold onto your hat everybody. The most polarizing set of new miniatures from Games Workshop in a while has hit the intertubes! Take a look at the First Legion - The Dark Angels.

Lots to take a look at over there. Rumors say we are about a week away from the Advanced Orders going up. We've had the rules covered in the Rumor Roundup for months, but lets talk about these minis.
Belial - Plenty of detail and the individual parts seem good, but the overall pose is incredibly static, almost like the old 2nd-3rd Edition metal one-piece models such as Eldrad and the original Yarrick.
Deathwing Terminators - Possibly the best of the bunch. Good variety, nice robes, and fantastic detail. A very nice visual departure from the standard termys.
Dark Talon - A plucky snubnosed fighter. I like the standard aircraft tail and wing design over the more helicopter inspired Stormtalon. I think this one's a winner.
Land Speeder Vengeance - Houston, we have a problem... It makes me want to take out the Marine crew and see if my Gi-Joe and Cobra action figures will fit in there. You all can wrestle in the mud with this one.
~Have at it.
