    Here is another one for you to track TTF…and its going to cost my wallet plenty.

      I can see that being a cool IP, but I hope they can come up with some novel, elegant and fun mechanics; otherwise it might just be yet another post-apocalyptic game in a rather over crowded market.

        I agree, as cool as the models are it needs something to set it apart besides the Fallout Name. Hopefully its got a pretty solid RPG-ish system to go along with it so its not just Army vs Army.

    Love those halflings, sadly Fantasy is dead in this area.

    Those Gaz trucks look super cool, just right for some pulp gaming; but you’ve got to wonder when they will actually hit the shelves given Rubicon’s huge backlog of products waiting in the production queue.

    The North Star dwarfs look really rather weak in that photo, and yet a more recent picture looked a whole horde better. I’ll be picking up a box for Frostgrave fun and general fantasy fighting.

    The Mantic Aesterian Marionettes are rather fun, but I would suggest not following the instructions for the hovering robot gun/shield platforms. If you do, you end up with one platform and a bit lump of space plastic. Instead I left the bottom gubbins off of both of the platforms, drilled a hole in to them, and then mounted them on a bit of plastic rod to a normal base. That way you get double the platforms and have some leftover gubbins to use as little robots or to make in to grav-jump-packs for some other minis.
