Reckoning is the new release everyone’s talking about right now, but it’s not Privateer’s only June release.
The Tharn Wolf Riders are just a reboxing – no new sculpts here. But why not have a look anyway.
Here are the bits for one of the grunts. Only… these are the bits for all the grunts. Other than an alternate, head, all the wolf riders are identical. Fortunately you can twist them around at the torso a bit to change up the pose. In all the years I’ve been getting harassed by these things, I never noticed they were all the same.
Here’s one of those alternate heads.
Now here’s a release I’m sure a lot of folks have been waiting for. The Iron Fangs and their UA in the same box, and they come with the Black Dragon option, AND they’ve been resculpted and cast in affordable plastic. This new box offers you no less than $45 in savings. If it was Black Dragons, rather than “generic” Iron Fangs you wanted, you’ll be saving $60 making these half the cost you would have paid previously.
So, yes this is PVC rather than polystyrene plastic – as usual. Fortunately as with some recent kits like the Highwaymen and Kriel Warriors, these seem to be of improved quality over some older releases.
Sometimes you can’t really tell until you start cleaning, but I think these will be pretty well received.
And the spears are a little bendy. But they’re better than the pewter ones, and seeing as how I had to replace the hafts on my old metal IFP anyway… Well it’s a lot easier to drill out plastic hands than metal.
I left all the heads in their bag since their teeny and I don’t want to lose any of them.
