N17 Van Saar Revealed

  1. It does seem odd to me that whoever painted the minis didn't paint the hands to be gloves, I can't see the Van Saar not wearing gloves considering their condition.

    I have noticed we are great at coming up with bad things about the gangs before they come out, and some without even reading the fluff :)

    Hmmm... wonder how long it will take me to hollow the minis with shields so I can stick a light in them and make the clear plastic more bearable, and how much blood I will lose to my one in a million blade of self destruction. I think blue would look all nice and glowy.

    I love them! I haven't even been able to buy the orlocks yet, and I already know I want these! Fitting an led looks like it shouldn't be too difficult, just some careful drilling? Only problem then is wiring up the switch and battery...

    Happy to see these are not on the chunky side like the orlocks and newer space marine releases.

    I bet they will look awesome painted up in different colors.

    Interesting design, I definitely see the Infinity influence. Are the head cables supposed to be mechandrites? The many-eyed helmets mimic spiders.

    Looks like the old minis will not mix in very well.

    I sort of doubt that the ad mech are too worried about radiation. Actually really happy about the minis though :D

    Is it just me, or does it look like the two female model have the same arms and gun backs, with the front of the guns being interchangeable. Plasma or... whatever the other design is- bolt, auto?

    I love this. My only gripe is that the ratio of female to male bodies is 1:4 rather than 2:3, which is what I would have expected. Still, excellent to see! High hopes for Delaque, Cawdor, Scavvies, etc now.

    Can't wait to get these. :D

    I’ll be honest, it’s kinda hard to see but I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s mostly a one/two piece sculpt on the sprue and her arms are fixed as they’re slimmer than the males. So it may be that guns and head are the only swappable bits.

    Maybe they’ll make some resin extra bits but if she is very fixed pose that’s a shame as all the ladies will be running and looking down their left arm.

    Not bad. Hoping new weapons from soon!

    They look like Goliath kit, with a body and Front plate armor separated, so you can put the front plate of the female one on any body you want.

    I like the bodies, not so hot on the helmets and head-cables. These guys with Mad Robot heads might be a good way to go. Would the juve heads maybe work on the female bodies? I don't know.

    I guess there will also be 20 heads and probably enough without masks to have a full unmasked gang. Head cables look optional too.

    I onno, I thought that would be the case with Goliaths and actual hair but they're mostly accessorised. Either way, an opportunity to use the Mad Robot heads is good for me! Just... they'll be the wrong scale to fit with my current Van Saar, so I'll probably retain my ambition to one day produce a Van Saar gang with third-party bits. Keeping a close eye on Anvil Industry's Afterlife range, they have the look I want but don't currently lend themselves to conversion.
  17. I absolutely love these. I was gonna get into Necromunda with the Orlocks, but the issues with the rules side of things put me off a bit, but I don't think I can resist with these.

    Anyone knows if the resin weapon kits from Forgeworld will be available around the same time as van Saar? Right now my Goliath feel an urge to gear up properly before facing these guys and gals here... :)

    GW say ‘you won’t have to wait too long for these guys’. Wonder if the original ‘one-Gang-per-quarter’ release schedule has been moved forward to a closer release schedule? And what will that mean for the quality of the rules that come out alongside them? :ROFLMAO:

    I hope so. I really want some Cawdor minis and care nought for the quality of the drivel rules.
