Yeah, they still laughably call their models 28mm Heroic. The scale creep is so much that most are probably pushing 32mm.Another observation is that GW models seem to always be getting taller and taller... Rare is the new model that isn't stupidly tall, on a tall podium/rock, with stuff sticking out its head to make it even taller.
It does look like that. I think it’s because there’s no anatomical connection at all. Because of all the armour you really can’t see how they join (I think there’s a second top torso too) so it looks like they’ve badly converted them by removing the larger creatures head and the legs of the regular guy.The blend between torsos doesn't seem right, like someone just chopped off the two halves from different kits and glued them together without much thought.
When someone wants to actually bother with/can justify the cost of buying the model, I'd wager.I wonder how long it’ll be before someone does a reverse conversion and gives the top guy some in-scale legs and the big guy a head??
You'd have thought the huge success of the Total War:Warhammer games would have showed GW how much people still love the more traditional fantasy setting of the OG warhammer world...I quite like the Kragnos model. One of the better models in that selection, the only other one I like is Radukar the Beast. The rest is just the typical AoS turn it up to 11 and stick things together is some vague attempt to create something 'unique' (while at the same time driving their older fans, who liked the classic fantasy tropes, even further away).
You know what would actually make me like Kragnos? If it was a sign they'd be making chaos dwarves again, what with the whole "he's a bull centaur".
Isn't the problem simply that it has two torsos? And whilst Centaurs do as well, it's different in the sense that Centaurs have two pairs of legs on either end of the first torso, and then a pair of hands higher up. Plus, you know, it's not an unfamiliar shape since they kind of look like people riding a horse, so the two torsoes thing is more easily overlooked.SNIP
It’s the most common theory that it’s just a human torso and horse torso joined. I’m not sure anatomically it’d make sense to have synchronised lungs as, well, I can’t see what evolutionary purpose it’d serve.I always assumed a centaur had two sets of bits, one in each body, but it would need two pairs of lungs to both breath simultaneously to work. All the other duplicate parts could largely just connect together to work.
