What happened to the $25-$30 price range? I'm guessing that the two helos are just a little too big to be sold at the previously advertised price range.

True - helicopters are a bit bigger than a tank :)

I'm guessing about a size five and probably need a new box and not being cost effective at a lower price.

Will we see the rest of the wave soon? Revered Leader and Snipers are what I want. Need these fellows to finish out my Northern Palestine/Southern Lebenon forces. Then it is on to the Goverment troops.

Some miniatures games uses a smaller scale for their airborne vehicles than they do for their ground vehicles, calling the argument that "since they are higher up in the air they will look smaller from the ground anyway". (or something like that; from the players perspective this is a strange argument ofcourse since a player sees the battle field top-down, but it makes some kind of wierd sense too)

Either way it serves to make air units a little smaller and not so costly.

This is all of Wave 4.

Wave 5 will follow soon as stated. MEA Revered Leader and snipers... And a Leopard 2, USMC Stinger Teams and PLA Snipers.

Guys, The models look GREAT!

I'm fine with the price for Heli's being higher. It makes sense that they're larger and cost more to produce.

My only concern is about the packaging for the helicopters. As a mail order customer i've noticed that the BF:Evo boxes are a little flimsy and i've had to glue 2 tank barrels back on before now, the rotor blades would be vunerable to the same issue and a bit harder to glue back.

Just an observation.

Keep up the good work and bring on the Leopard :)

I'm assuming that the Wave 4 part of wave 4 was ready but the wave 5 part of wave 4 wasn't (is that confusing to anyone else?). Basically wave 4 is a super wave which combined two waves into one. The first half was already slated and must be ready while they are waiting on the original wave 5 stuff (now wave 4 b) to be available.

I'm not so keen on the Lynx. Not the best looking helicopter of all time and on the model the exhausts appear to be wrong and the nose assembly is flat not slightly raked.

Of course, my biggest problem with it is that its not an Apache (Hint).

:lol: agreed, I also pointed out last year that the Future Lynx is intended as a Recce bird and transport and won't be equipped with TOW, that is now the Apache's role, so disappointing. :( :x

Sometimes it's hard to be a wargamer.
When our favourite games go out of print,
When the pages fall out of our rule books,
When new rules render our favourite mini obsolete,
When new editions render our whole army obsolete,
When metal minis look like they were cast in someone's kitchen,
When plastics look like they were pre-painted by short sighted orangutans,
When we have to take more minis than we want because the rules say so,
When we have to buy more minis than we need because that's how they're packaged,
When we have to pay more for a mini because it's a command unit or a special character or just because the company knows we'll think it's cool.
But it's things like those helos that make it all worthwhile.

ditto here, but apparently its too uber for the game, so therefore seeing as we will never get a mini, can someone from MGP post some stats so we can go "ohhh.... ahhh.... whoa" and proxy the Attack helo of doom! :D

I really don't buy that argument, sure it's the best Attack Helicopter out there but it's not a quantum leap beyond the Tiger.

All i know is, I am happy i play marines, because that cobra looks mean.

I can't wait to use one to mow down everything like grass - now i just want to know the stats! (I know, I know, I am ever so greedy!)

Seriously though, I can't wait to see what the rest looks like!

i reckon your right until you whack a longbow FCR on the bird, it turns it into a tank hunting daemon.
