From the pictures above it looks like heads and weapon arms could be interchangeable.  Horse tails too.

Notice that the guy in lower right has a different head and weapon than the guy riding the same horse in a different picture above.   Also the horse has a different tail, and the horse up and to his left has the same tail as the horse in the picture above.

Additionally, the center rider has a different arm than the same rider at the top of the photos, and the heads are positioned differently.

New Cities of Sigmar boxset is coming.



Quote
They are joined by an Alchemite Warforger, powerful wizard-smiths from the Gold College of Chamon. These metallurgical mages can reinforce the armour of allies and infuse weapons with searing power, aided by the smouldering runic crucibles they carry into battle.



Quote
You may have noticed just a little sting in the tail of the preview video – the awe-inspiring presence of Tahlia Vedra, Lioness of the Parch, who rides out as the scorching heart of Aqshy’s military.

Its listed as a manticore, so going for a different mythological bent. Looks like the riding throne comes packed with relics. They do seem to be doubling down on "Rotting heads" as relics instead of "SKULLZ EVERYWHERE!"

I see everyone is immensely excited for these new GW miniatures, judging by the many posts here.


Anyway ... meanwhile, other companies are putting out designs such as these:

Reptilian Overlords


Last Sword Miniatures:


(If the pictures don't load, open them in a new tab.)

Just for comparison.

It said "404 not found" when I tried to open in a different tab.

New human scout models.

Quote
The Wildercorps Hunters are expert trackers, with an intimate knowledge of the rougher parts of the Mortal Realms. Often recruited from the Reclaimed – those peoples who survived for generations under the cruel lash of Chaos, while Azyr’s doors were closed – they’ve endured sickness, hunger, and inclement weather to hone their skills to a keen knife’s edge.

Wildercorps squads are unparalleled in their ability to scout the environment for traps and sappers. They perform this surveillance with the aid of Trailhounds, legendarily bad-tempered dogs bred for keen senses and powerful jaws. They sniff out rival scouting parties and reconnoitre shady groves and clammy warrens where the Hunters can lie in wait.

Very cool. I'm afraid that GW is going to hook me into another army...

I like the scout models, but not the handgunner models.

Full range is being revealed for Cities of Sigmar.





Quote
Pontifex Zenestra is the Matriarch of the Great Wheel, one of the many Cults Unberogen who worship aspects of the God-King Sigmar. Allegedly a great-grandmother at the dawn of the Age of Sigmar, she brooks no questions about the accompanying skeleton whose scars mirror her own.

These models are unreal. Had they been in the first AOS set I would have gone all in and never looked back.

As someone who is fed up of just about every other figure manufacturer copying to a greater or lesser extent Games Workshop's figures, as well as others doing direct copy 3D prints, reading today's update for the Cities of Sigmar came as a quite a shock.

You may have noticed in amongst the Cities of Sigmar troops are a number of peculiar little figures which they are calling Gargoylians. Looks very much to me like GW have jumped on the band wagon and are milking the success of the Medieval Marginalia Miniatures range of figures that have been featuring on Kickstarter over the past 4 years.

Yeah wouldn’t be surprised.

Wasn’t there a game called Frostgrave and then GW came out with a game called Beastgrave or something like that? GW borrows all the time.

You might like todays article all about the Gargoylians!

Quote
Gargoylians are chimeric critters of indeterminate origin, and theories abound as to their true nature. Some believe that they are drawn to the scent of faith and devotion – hence why they appear so often amidst congregations of pious Sigmarites. Others think they are miniature manifestations of the realms’ anger – and there’s a lot to be angry about – while others say they are related to the incarnates.

Regardless of the truth – and there’s a kernel of it in all three theories – there’s no denying that these are funky little mites… albeit a little disconcerting. When the gates rise and the trumpets sound, scurrying, cantering Gargoylians accompany the Dawnbringer Crusades and other warhosts mustered by the Cities of Sigmar.

Clearly putting quite the focus on humans for W:AoS.

Mordheim had these kind of bizarre Bosch style critters, and they featured in subsequent Empire art.

So actually GW was there first, taking the weird medieval marginalia into a miniature game. Just they didn't make them into figurines per se. But they can still point out that these AoS critters have a history in the Warhammer metarverse that goes beyond those medieval marginalia kickstarters.

I don’t remember having seen anything like these before, but I’m not familiar with the Mordheim range, and as the Idoneth had their little fishes it not a new concept so I’d better apologize to GW.

Not sure about the Fusiliers but like the look of the rest of the range – hopefully we’ll see the sprues soon and get an idea whether they follow the current trend of fixed poses or they will be multi-posed or at least reasonably easy to convert.
