 After not hearing from Griffin i contacted them Yesterday to see what is happening.Things are still up in the air as they are struggling to catch-up on orders after Stewart passed away.So it should be around two weeks for my stuff to get sorted.Not the best new's but understandable given the circumstances.

For those interested, especially Blackblood players  ;) I'll give you my review of the models.
1.  Clean casting.  Almost no mold lines, except for the ankles and under the tabard.  The flash is easy to file off or cut with a knife.
2.  The base.  It comes bent a little bit, making the model pitch forward - easy fix with a pair of needle nose pliers.  There is no slotta, just a small, integral base, but perfect for putting on anything you like.  I plan of pinning them to metal 30mm bases and using greenstuff or putty to blend it in. 
3.  The sword.  Easily straightened and thick enough that it won't break, and looks the business of massive damage.
4.  The pose.  It's so cool.  I went in with a friend, and we each got five models.  I plan of pinning back banners on the leaders.  They look incredibly good grouped together now that I'm working on them.

5.  Andy's customer service rocks.  Buy his models.

Peace out.

 Thanks for the review Joshua.

 I think the base bends a little when it comes out of the mould hot.Like you say an easy fix to get it into the right position.

 Looking forward to seeing which standards you go for for the Leaders.I would imagine the Skorne one's from Hordes would work really well for them.

 Cant wait to see them all painted up and in a few games.

 Just wondering what your force composition will be for the Blackbloods Joshua?

 Also what size force points wise will it be?

The honor of playing them first will go to my friend Dalton.  He is a Blackblood maniac.  Pics and a report will happen and I'll make sure his list is published.
