Hm, well, the sculpts look okay, but not fantastic. Somehow they have very similar grumpy faces and it seems as if there were no females among them, which is bad since my minbari warrior caste player (and her character) is female. Single figures or small blisters would be better, I think, since most people just want their player characters or is there any kind of skirmish game planned with the 28mm B5 minis?
I concur. Umm ... has anyone else noticed the Centauri Royal Guard and EarthForce Personnel on the B5 Roleplaying page?
As Catlion suggested, they do look oriented more towards a skirmish force, rather than RPing. Is this going to change? I'd love to see a few more character miniatures? Or is there another B5 minis-game on the horizon, either skirmish-level (like Gangs of MC-1) or squad level (like Starship Troopers)?
AOG's GROPOS game was also 10mm so that's probably why this one is
But 10mm is a lovely scale - you can actually get a good paintjob on the infantry if you put your mind to it. It also means N Scale railway scenics are pretty much directly compatible. Also, there's lots of fantasy miniatures available in this size as well (Warmaster...) some of which would probably bear conversion.
Ah..."Grand Scale". Wasn't GROPOS more like Flames of War than EPIC40K?
Meaning it was more company/battalion level, like Flames of War than Regimental/Divisional like EPIC?
That would explain the use of 10mm vs. a smaller scale in the original game. Still 10mm for a Regimental/Divisional game wouldn't be a problem for me to grasp. So long as it's at company level or higher I'll be happy with it.
And those new Minbari Warrios look good, I'll have to pick some up and spend some serious painting time on them. B5 models deserve no less! :lol:
