  • nurglitch

    DP9 also has the CEF frames and hover-tanks painted up now.

  • georgelabour

    I so wish I could get back into Heavy Gear, and Battletech Alpha Strike.

    Sadly(not really) my local gaming clique is on a narrative 40k campaign binge right now so I’ll have to wait to talk them over into a mecha game.

    Also I think that all that Infinity terrain does more to make me want to play the game than the miniatures do, and I happen to LOVE the miniatures.

  • Majere613

    Does anyone know if the Bolt Action Shermans are big enough to be used as a Leman Russ Conqueror? I’m looking to use some for my Renegades and FW don’t make them any more.

    On a totally unrelated note, I wish I needed another Keeper for my Daemons, because that Avatar is amazing and I’d get a backer discount on it. Ah well.

    • Pointed Stick

      nope, the Bolt Action vehicles are tiny

      • Severius_Tolluck

        God the bolt action vehicles seem to be incorrect scale at times!

        • Pointed Stick

          well they do look small, but then if you walk around an actual sherman it isn’t that big. when people complain about marines in rhinos and such like I always say go look at a 12 seater landrover, you would never think twelve people could sit in it :p

          • Severius_Tolluck

            That’s not what I mean, I have been in some of those vehicles in real life. Some sculpts are smaller than the true comparison. For example the 12 man french transport truck barely is big enough to hold a single model if he was sculpted sitting tight let alone twelve!

      • Majere613

        Curses! Quite why manufacturers don’t just tell you the dimensions of their models I’ll never know.

      • markdawg

        No 40k vehicles are way overs sized. Pretty soon you 40k boys will have to play on a larger tables your models get bigger every year. A land raider is the size of most buildings foot print wise in 40k. Now the flyers and Kights.

        Bolt Action vehicles are right for Bolt Action.

        • Pointed Stick

          I never said otherwise

    • euansmith

      I was wondering if the Blitzkrieg Miniatures BMP-1would fill the space of a Chimera.

      • markdawg

        It wont I have several of their kits they are really high quality like forge world level. If you do buy one you wont be disappointed.

  • euansmith

    Thank you, TTF, you make Fridays even better.

    Skull Forge Scenics are off to a good start with these wayside shrines and their graveyard walls too.

    • ZeeLobby

      Hah. That’s def what drew my eye out of the list as well.

    • Chris. K Cook

      Yeah they make good wayside shrines to Morr and the other God in Warhammer Fantasy Battles … oh wait.

      • euansmith


  • Certs

    Raging Heroes looks good as usual. I like Lynette for Dark Age too. That Plast Craft terrain, however, seems a bit lackluster compared to their previous sets. I like the ‘spaceship interior’ vibe but not the biggest fan of wide open ramps or platforms.

    • euansmith

      I can see what you are saying about the terrain; for Infinity, those ramps really could do with parapets.

  • Arthfael

    GW may not like Slaanesh any more, but other companies clearly do. That count as Keeper of Secrets is absolutely fantastic.
