The Battle Bunnies Review is excellent, as is the Battle Report they did along with it.

 

I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on one of these, as I think that most of the "ills" of the kit can be corrected with some mild cutting/repositioning.

The kit seems to be back in stock in the Uk. It looks like it’s out of stock as you scroll down the page but if you click on it you can place an order. Do so at your own risk, as delays are possible until we get confirmation they really do have some.

I really can’t get over how poorly the official photos showed it compared to ones we’ve seen since - either that or it’s just really, really grown on me.

The neutron laser one had a far better paint job, which I think helped. And since then we've seen people able to play with the posing, and from what I've seen from the reviews, this is the most posable titan in the game bar the Warmaster. (And maybe the Warbringer, I dunno, never built one.)

I don’t get the impression it’s more posable than a warlord, actually. That has ball and socket Joints in the thighs and this doesn’t, just an axle. Bendy knees make it more posable than a warhound though, even if the ankle pistons are awkward.

I don’t know how I’ll do mine yet. I like running poses for warhounds but for this it would be cooler to be stalking - only that might be tricky to pull off.

Warlords look more posable than they are, thanks to the limitations on the armour panels at the ankles and the bend of the knees. Same with Reavers.

I've just grabbed mine. I went with the Neutron laser as new weapons are always cool. I cant see the need for a Volcano cannon when I have Reavers packing them. The review on Goonhammer got my interest so I figured I'd give one a go. I'm still not 100% sure on the model though.

Didnt the Battle bunnies review notably complain a bit about posability?

Yes, they said the ankle pistons were a bit of a pain, which limits what you can do somewhat.

Mine’s in the post. I’ll have a proper look at what can be done with it. I hoped it would arrive yesterday but it looks like I won’t get it till Monday now.

You need to pull that trigger fast before FW puts the prices up again.

Mine has arrived, along with some Armigers. I actually built a banner of them first because I was curious to see how small they are (answer: really quite small). Hopefully I'll get the Dire Wolf built tonight and share some pics and thoughts.

 

Initial impressions are that it's a nice model. No print lines or any of those issues that we've sometimes seen. The hull and main gun fit together well.

I've also just placed an order for a Dire Wolf and some Armigers. The DW has been out of stock for two or three times already here, so I'd rather have one before it stays for long.

I'm curious just how small the Armigers are going to be next to the DW, all of them being in the same price bracket... Points wise, the DW scores about 3:1. 😉

Value for money, the Dire Wolf wins hands down, both in terms of weight of resin, and also points value in game. It’s not exactly cheap (it’s FW after all!) but it’s a much lower price point than I was expecting!

The Armigers are *very* cute, however.
