I like the squidheads!

Why not Zoidberg?
I agree with the inhumane treatment of animals.

Seemingly a new single mini from Warlord ...

http://store.warlordgames.com/lord-leven-covenanter-lord-general-7814-p.asp

I like it for possible use as an Imperial Noble for the Empire of Wolves list, and I've ordered one.

Very nice miniature.
The horse is particularly good.

Mantic games undead - their zombies and skeletons specifically - are the best available, and the cost of them makes them astonishing.

Which is all the weirder for the fact that the rest of Mantics stuff is utterly dire.

New Perr WotR due to be out at the end of January

Love it all!

I think those two kits are better than their GW equivalents.

I may as well just have my paychecks deposited straight into the Perrys' account at this rate.  I also seem to be in danger of ordering more Perry carts, pack animals, and civilians than actual soldiers...

I'm not enamoured with their Elves but then I am yet to see any Elves I particularly like outside of the LotR range (and those are too small), difficult race to capture the essence of in a miniature.
I do like the Mantic chaos dwarves and their Orcs are very nice however the undead are indeed the pick of the bunch, they are sensational.

Those Perry casualties are excellent sculpts.
Love the horse but don't think much of the carts at all.  Wheels are nice but the carts are pretty average. Must wait to see the final product finished and painted.

Still waiting for Mantic Humans....

Man I so want to get a huge 60 man unit of artizan pikes but I usually play at my local GW, since the nearest non-GW club is like 30 mins away (which I realise is not a long way for some people, but I live in the middle of a city and everything is close). 

I think I'll just wait till march or april when the next Empire book comes out and see if they put them back in.

Get some Artizan figures, stick em on the table at the GW store. If anyone complains tell them they are GW Dogs of War pikemen...I bet no one at the store will know what they really look like, and if they did they'd not say anything ;)

The guys working at my store are pretty sharp and they know me and my army pretty well.  Unfortunately this is not an option.  Plus you can't play pikemen at GW stores since there are no rules for them... Sigh.  Time to suck it up and drive 30 mins for my games.

Has this been confirmed?

By the way, pikeman could be used as spears.  If somebody complains, they're being stupid.

It's not confirmed but it's a fairly solid rumor that we're after Vampire counts.  So I figure if VC are in Jan/Feb then empire could well be in mar/april.  Anyway I'm kind of just hoping.


The other problem is that I don't want spears.  I already have 50 halberds and 50 swords.
