Man, those models are so great. Seraphon might be one of the best plastic ranges right now.

Free Cities preview! They do specify that the new Free Cities update isn't for several months, longer then they would usually preview, but the hosts and others have taken a special interest in them so wanted to preview a bit while they can. So we get a look at some new basic foot troops.



Edit: Sounds like Cities of Sigmar is coming in Autumn, with a good sized wave of new models.

Interesting.

With their heavy armor, looks like maybe they could be used as Reiksguard on foot.

Worth saying again, in light of the new models!

I like the new Vampire and the "Empire" soldiers as well.

Sadly atrocious, unless you were looking to have miniatures for the living times of say 4th edition Wights but that is probably just the all to bat like helmet topper.

And I will preempt Old Stonebeard, there are some 3rd edition figures and Marauder Miniature human fighters, but those are awful also.  :-P

We are now in the 8th year of AoS. These are the first (new) 'normal' humans we get so see and .... wow ... well worth the wait. /Sarcasm

I hate them. I am not surprised though.

P.S.: The middle one looks like Whoopi Goldberg.

My hot takes:

New Lizardmen = amazing, but I won't be getting any because I have to draw the line somewhere and I already have too much!  :engel:

AoS humans = meh, they're ok and will no doubt have some useful human bits for conversions etc. might make some good Border Princes guys you accompany my Lietpold the Black. Honestly not what I was expecting though given the few glimpses of humans seen in AoS artwork more recently (I recall a picture of guys trekking through a jungle wilderness?) they were definitely more 'Empire' than what we have with these new guys. Will be intrigued to see what else comes along.

Plus a chaos hero that looks like he'd be great for Fantasy as well.

Okay, spent some time working and pondering new releases. I actually quite like them. Chaos warlord looks suitably chaosy it could be used for anything, and honestly I'm already eyeing him as an enemy in my ongoing RPG campaign.

The knights are rad, and even as a fan of the previous foot knights I think these are that next level better. I particularly like the way it seems you can make a bunch of different "looks" out of the one kit. Axeman looks particularly grim, but the classic reiksguard look is just awesome.

Orcs I'm a bit more meh on, but I feel that way in general about the AoS big chunky armor orcs. Kroolboyz are nifty, but I tend to lean towards classic lord of the rings, or old world style orcs.

But that slayer. He looks fantastic, and while I think the scale will probably be a bit on the big side, he'd fit right into my Slayer Army no problem. There's some demons in my opponents army, and its time to bring a slayer worthy of the title to battle against them.

Those freeguild guys are amazing. Had AOS rolled out with guys like that in the starter, I would have gone in.

It does feel like such a missed opportunity when it comes to the Cities range. And if its true that they only got a codex because some fan developers essentially made one themselves and pushed it on GW, it just makes that hole deeper & stupider.

Knights are quite good. After the foot I didn't have such hopes
