    Fantastic to hear.

    There does look to be a lot of blank space on that banner though. I wonder...

    Hi Steve

    Good to see Mr Lee's team going for it with a new project ...certainly looks well sculpted (3D ?) and lots of details to get the brush to

    Hopefully we will see a box art

    Thanks for sharing

    The box art on the labels is actually the concept art which was commissioned especially for this project (which is pretty cool).

    Yes; 3D sculpted but I'm not sure if the sculptor has been named publically yet. His work has been about in miniature form for a few years now so he's not someone unknown.

    As for painted box art. Nothing as yet though I know of one which will get a GreyMountain review and I'll be painting it after too. Not going to class that as official box art though. Will be a strange review to write as on one hand I'm doing it for GMR and the other I'm part of MLM now so not sure I'm the person to really do it. But I suppose if I treat it the same as every review then I can keep my integrity (and not upset Mr Lee's too lol).

    Your reviews are always detailed, informative, fun and above all else honest and fair so I think you are the perfect person to review this kit even if you are involved with Mr Lee's now.
    I'm sure it will be a great review up to your normal high standards.

    Always nice to see something new and original.

    I would be interested in seeing how a full 75mm to 120mm figure of Knox would look like although I know some sculptors prefer to only sculpt busts. :)

    Nice addition Forte and probably my favourite out of the two on show so far. Quick question will these be limited addition or continually available?.

    New range for the store. Not planned to be limited at all.

    All I can say is Joao has really impressed me with how he's created the hair on this range but you'll see what I mean when the rest are shown. But of course, having good concept art to work from helps.

    Can't wait then. There are a few sketches by Ibrahem that I would love to see as models.

    As you can see, the whole crew have now been shown. And so...
    Concept art, stories, and renders. Printing and casting is happening now on the final two and Arbiter I am currently reviewing for Monday.

    Wow great work on the team Steve. Of the newest ones I probably like Arbiter best as the artwork and sculpt does catch the aristocratic arrogance really well. That being said Phantasma does give me a feel of a rogue eldar and it would be great to paint her in a craftworlds colours. I look forward to the 29th :).

    Just done the preorder on Phantasma and will probably be tempted by Arbiter to before the end of preorders :D. I really hope this line does well for you all as it's such a original collection and the sculpt work looks amazing on all five models.

    Fantastic. Considering the pre-orders have only been opened to newsletter subscribers things are looking positive so far.
    I've been having a good look over the Arbiter test cast I have so feedback will be done and review written too.
