New Evil Troops coming!!
« on: September 12, 2008, 09:51:11 AM »



Pick up some Cultists and Giant Slugs from Heresy in our massive order from Heresy in the Announcements section!!

Don't forget to choose which heads they come with!!

Thom is statting these out for his fantasy game engine with the same rubric as our favorite game.

I'm hoping fans of evil on the forum will order some from Andy.  Pewter pimpin', that's me.  I've got mine already, but I'm looking forward to seeing the stat line and playing them on the board.

Yep - I've already got some of those figures, excellent miniatures.  It'll be nice to see stats for them!

The GW lawyers would shoot us down Glenn before you!!  'Ain't goin' near their franchise.  It's all about small companies with excellent models that would fit into a dark fantasy or sci-fi engine.

I've been asking him for years to do this, as have many others, so I'm happy we'll see this.  I  had my cultists painted by Brand X so I'm ready to play Archer, instantly!!

I would never encourage the use or rules of any GW model in anay game, save perhaps for the cheap plastics and rare nice hero.  Though I must admit, their Spellcasting Elven Wizard guy is going to be a great D&D character.

Anyways, I would love to see what Thom cooks up for smaller company support.  There are a few promising figure lines I'd like to see support for, as well as some generic stuff.  Being able to design our own units would also be great, but I would not count on it.

Those Heresy models are very nice, though I admit, I have never ordered Heresy before (And am currently broke as hell, but Payday is soon, but then my spending cash is already spoken for)

 Maybe we should start a new thread for miniatures we would like to see.
 As some may know i am looking onto starting a small miniatures venture one reason behind selling off my collection.At the moment I have six greens three more greens complete and another couple being worked on.As of now I have had the great pleasure of having had Matt Gubser and Paul Muller do work for me.Also in the starting stages of getting Simon Hariss on board for terrain/scenery projects.All of these artisans have been great to work with.

 Thumbs up to Josh and Thom for bringing other small companies into the fold.Looking forward to seeing some new stats soon.

They look quite nice. It will be interesting to see what stats Thom can come up with.

Well played Andy, as you knew I'd prolly steal your thunder and announce what you've been up to like I did with Alex!  This is a very exciting time right now, and I agree that after we see how this goes, we can start threads not unlike Matt Gubser's "Other People's Pewter" where we talk about what ranges we would like to push around.  I don't want to get everyone amped up and then not deliver on something, so let's just take this first step.

Rubs hands gleefully together and laughs like masherking: mwahahahahaha!!!

Oh yeah, Andy, whenever you're ready to show off your greens and get opinions around here, you know you're invited.

That's a smart way to give us fresh troops for the game, because these models really fit in the Devout army.

Any update as far as Chronopia rules for the Hersey models in the original post.  To those who have ordered from them before, what about the order transactions with Hersey?  Did it go smoothly?  I ask cause I'm thinking about making an order.  What about their customer service, if you had to deal with them at all?

I have ordered from Heresy several times, and Andy is one of the most pleasant chaps I've ever dealt with.  Shipping was as quick as can be expected from England, packing was very sturdy, and the castings of the figures have always been perfect.

So, yeah, I definitely reccomend placing an order with Heresy directly.
