What a huge day - we've reviewed Warhammer Visions #3, White Dwarf #10 and now the Miliatarum Tempestus Scions - a kit that surprised a whole lot of people with it's new look for the Imperial Guard.
The Militarum Tempestus Scions, according to their designer are the plastic Stormtroopers we have all been waiting for and certainly veer away from the previous Perry Brothers designs and subsequent incarnations.
So what do you get in the box (apart from 5 minis for $50)? More after the jump as we tear into the box...
I am not a photographer, so expect dodgy pictures below
The masked heads, however, seem to have more to them, with embossed details and deep lines.
As I've already said, this is my favourite head - I want to army build with this one!
"Tally ho, chaps!" - BTW, you may not get that cat hair in your set. Don't be jealous!
Were you hoping for uniformity in your uniforms?
What is interesting here is the numbering system on the back of the arms!
They really want you to make some set poses and match them together in definite pairs.
Now this is a real service to hobbyists. Kudos to you GW!
This goes back to the old days where they used to be on the plastic boxed sets.
I would have loved to have had 10 rather than 5 in the set, but there you go!
It's hard to argue against this set; they're good looking, nicely moulded, poses are a bit static but that can be changed, and the addition of 10 alternate heads in both styles is more than generous. Add small details like the optional coat and gear, then this is definatley worth a buy.
Did you pick your's up today?
having seen them now, do you think you'll be more or less inclined to get them?
