Over on Warseer, someone has posted some pics from next months White Dwarf featuring a bunch of new undead mini's. Some of them look meh, some are WTF?!?, but there are a few in there that look quite interesting which I could see making their way into my KoW undead army.

The link to the thread is below. The pics are in posts 1720 and 1724.

I couldn't find anything through that link.
Where are these pics you're talking about?

Was unimpressed, myself. Lucky really seeing as how I've sworn never to give them money ever again!

Oh oh. The Warseer inquisition removed the posts with the pics.



Good thing I'm part not part of that. Grin

I have more pics that I'll try to post later. Might be a day or two cause of Xmas obligations.

They removed product pictures?  WTF for?   Even unauthorized pictures of upcoming products are specifically protected as journalism in pretty much every country on the planet.

Warseer moderators have brain fungus making them act irrationally.  It's the only explanation.

Dakka doesn't have a dumb policy like that:

Thanks for posting the Dakka link, saves me from uploading to photo bucket and linking that back at an inferior picture quality.

As for Warseer... They have a very odd moderation policy. I've not been able to figure it out.

As for the minis, yes their prices are nuts, but I find their undead cavalry interesting... Alhough I already have plenty of Mantics Revenant Knights. Those Manbat creatures are kind of interesting too.

The first post on the Warseer thread has the pictures.

"Minitaures" seem to be getting larger and larger.

So it's one of those strange "pictures must be in their proper place" things like when they closed the mantic picture thread.

I don't quite understand why the scythes have flail heads attached to them.  That would make them terribly ineffective.  Cut those off and those miniatures aren't awful, just expensive.

Is it me, or are the cost of these miniatures a little lower than we've come to expect?

Well, in terms of posting sometimes I honestly do wonder if GW has some unofficial stake in Warseer. It is fairly tightly regulated. Then again the problems with all of these forums is that it's never going to be run the way you'd like or expect unless the person is very similar to you in their way of thinking.

I wasn't too impressed by the line they put out.

Honestly, I think it very odd that GW has still not done some bloody zombies. I mean, I'm never going to buy them as I think the mantic ones are superb, but can they not realise how awful their current core choice is?

Holy shit those models have a lot of pubic hair.  Shocked

Black Knights are the only thing that looks good, and has a reasonably non-insane price.

I do like the coven throne, but not soo sure about the giant bat/ghoul things. I realised I have actually obtained a fairly large stack of mantic undead stuff so I may get mantics 90 undead deal and add the throne and the female vamp as a quick new fantasy army. I feel sorry for new gw only guys starting vc though, the pricing is just rediculous. Oh and I swear mantics revanant knights are significantly nicer than the new black knights.
