The dwarves are cool and I think the new captain is absolutely stunning (even if his wargear's rather less than optimal). However, I'm absolutely blown away by the trolls and Thranduil.
They had the painted models in the cabinets at the GT and the pictures truly do not do them justice - Thranduil is absolutely stunning and the likeness to Lee Pace is incredible - totally up there with one of their best. I can't wait to get him on the table. I can understand the complaints about 'having' to pay for the display base but no-one knows prices yet so we might be pleasantly surprised, the fact that there's no foot model in the kit should make it a bit cheaper.
The hands down winners for me though are the trolls, again, the pictures don't do them justice and it's hard to convey quite how huge they are. The detail in the scythe gauntlets' one's face is spectacular, can't wait to spend far too much time working that up! Having just spent a couple of weeks painting Keith's gorgeous Ogre faces, I can't wait to see what he's done on an even bigger canvas.
I love those lovely humongous Gundabad Trolls, especially Mr No Jambags. Anyone have an idea on price £40-£55?
There was no price given but based on the price of the Ogres and Ballista and the size of these guys I'm guessing they'll be around £60. I can't see them being more than that and that way, if they're cheaper I'll just be pleasantly surprised.
They can't come soon enough for me - absolutely stunning!
