    Really love Solomon Kane so Ill be watching out for that game. Also ALTERNATE WITCH HUNTERS!!! lol

  • Apocryphus

    Huh, I thought Wargames Exclusive got a C&D on that Typhus model.

    • euansmith

      Maybe this is a different Typhus model? 😉

      • Apocryphus

        Oh yeah, that was the OTHER Typhus model.

        • euansmith

          I’m sure that, when GW S&Ds this one, there will be another Typhus model along in a bit. Until GW is able to get something like the “Analogue Drugs” Laws passed to cover their minis. 😉

          • Apocryphus

            It wouldn’t shock me in the least, especially not after they changed Elves to “Aeioulvoues”.

        • Rahl

          I went back looking in the old “Outside the Box” articles with Wargame Exclusive in them, and on Tabletop Fix’s blog, and I think, that this is a model they announced back in August, but they hadn’t released for sale until now. So I’m pretty sure there never was another Typhus model.

          If you’ve got a source for the C&D, I’d like to read it too – took me long enough finding the announcement of the model, I’m done searching.


          • Apocryphus

            That “OTHER Typhus” was just a joke. I read about the C&D in passing so I don’t have a link handy, and then all news of the model disappeared, followed by the Wargames Exclusive Abbadon being removed from the site. Signs pointed to C&D, or at least something happening, but it looks like they were still able to get the model out.

          • Rahl
          • Apocryphus

            It disappeared for a bit and then returned with the mohawk head in large scale, then the smaller one with the mohawk came a bit later. I prefer their special characters so I’ve been keeping an eye on that stuff. Could be rumors too, of course.

          • Rahl

            Another thing to note, is things not on the webstore, are still available on the warex-mini ebay store (which i’m all but certain is being run by Wargame Exclusive), like most of the Sisters that were removed from the webstore.

          • Apocryphus

            I actually didn’t know they had an ebay, I’ll have to check it out

          • Rahl


            Ordered from it before, stuff ships from Ukraine, some of the figures have had hundreds of sales, and always seem to be in good stock. So if it ISN’T Wargame Exclusive running it, its someone they are very well acquainted with.

          • Apocryphus

            Thanks for the link! Good to know someone has good experience ordering from it too

    • Kabal1te

      they also got a C&D on most of their sisters models. I am honestly surprised they haven’t gotten more of them.

      • Rahl

        Maybe they have and just ignored them. As far as I know, a C&D isn’t a legally binding thing. Companies just send them out to try to get unwanted things to go away before going to court. Getting one doesn’t automatically mean you’ve been found guilty of infringing acts.

        GW would then have to go to court and the case found in their favor. Most 3rd party companies can’t afford that, even if they are confident that they can win. So easier to just comply before getting to that point.

        Though, if they have gotten C&D for things and then removed them, its likely they just do so for all their product, and GW just hasn’t been super aggressive with them.

  • euansmith

    So many cool minis from so many manufacturers. The Puppetswar’s heads are full of character. But I think that the Harry Potter minis win for me this week. They are so detailed without being overwrought and nicely proportioned and posed too.

    That Kettenkrad kit though; a half-tracked motorbike and a tracked mine in one kit? So much weird WW2 tech. Cool.

    • marxlives

      I agree, there are just some solid minis being released from the industry as a whole this week.

  • piglette

    Well i guess I don’t have to buy that hideous nu-Typhus now!

  • markdawg

    i’m not a big Harry Potter fan but those minis are really good and the paint jobs are unbelievable!
