Yeah I was thinking the Afghans would look ok as they are with a few imperial techy bits to make them look a little bit more 40k.

Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the centre of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

Some more experience with the kits:

  • The Einherjar are a really nice kit and they could easily work as a "short" scion team, lots of details and loads of extra bits;
  • WW1 Germans are really nice as others have noted and with the details on the bodies, I actually felt that adding even more things on their waists and such was too much, they might look simple but they are really nice and detailed;
  • The persians are quite easy to build and the armoured versions would certainly look ok with parts from Raumjagers or Grognards for an IG conversion;
  • The fauns are really tall and have very thin but strong arms, but I think that escher arms would work well for modern beastmen/fauns (I will experiment with this today and post any feedback). The fauns are taller than 28mm humans but they are clearly the same scale in terms of proportions, which means they just look like tall people/creatures;
  • The centaurs are also a nice kit, only slightly taller than the fauns and are mostly compatible with the faun parts. The horse portion is more pony sized than horse sized, so it won't exactly look as big as a typical rough rider, but it will be bigger than a regular human. I haven't placed them on bases but I suppose 32 or 40 mm would look better with overall model. Like the fauns I will try to use escher arms and see if it works;

Also a note that the fauns and centaurs are on sale, if you are interested on making some conversions :)

Some examples of how Escher arms fit on fauns and centaurs:

Since the torsos are slightly narrower than the Escher ones, some of the two handed weapons can be a bit trickier to fit, but nothing serious and with some greenstuff it would likely fit perfectly as desired.

I'm looking forward to those snipers too. Just another few weeks give or take. Super excited!

WGA are gonna bankrupt me this year, Grognards for my Commissar training squads/Scions, Grognard hvy weapons just because you cant have too much firepower, WW1 French (and Germans just for the gasmask heads) for my Krieg and Halflings/Halfling Cav just because I want a platoon of mini Kriegers and mini Valhallans. I only wanted a small Guard army as a break from painting Marines. :lol:

Sprue layout of the WW1 French, all the bits not on the sprue will be packaged as an extra sprue, thats a nice idea.

Quote from their Facebook page. 

 

''The Eisenkern Stormtroopers and Grognard Command and Heavy Support boxes have arrived in the US warehouse and the good folks at Bridge Distribution have begun to ship out pre-orders! We expect to have the same thing happening in the UK any day.

French Resistance and British Riflemen have reached the ports in Australia and New York (although it may still be a week or more before they are in the warehouse). The UK order just sailed past Crete and is due in the UK next week (but given the ongoing delays at Southampton they may take awhile to get to the warehouse)''

For you guys in the UK, just discovered a stockist near me (its the local GW managers husband) that sells WGA stuff for ¬£20 a box instead of 25. 

Good geezer as well, cares about his customers. Check his store out, does a lot of stuff from various ranges and companies.
