We are now sculpting the 3ups for the first AoW plastic regiment sets!
I am sorry I can’t say right now which is the first race we are working on. Creating plastic minis means a pretty big investment (at least for AoW), so we have to be careful and not unveil which minis are we working on until we are much closer to release date.
What I can say though is that the plastic sets will be boxed, containing multi-component plastic frames (high-impact polystyrene, same as Perrys, GW or Mantic) to put together 16 or more troopers (depending on the type of regiment). All that together with the style and look that characterizes AoW miniatures!
So no news about what troops yet -but a good guess would be dwarfs
They have a poll at the AoW forum - that might effect what will be in the next box set - so why not vote for Chaos Dwarfs??
Most of the companies producing plastic multiparts at the moment are offering them at very reasonable prices. But, AoW’s market is used to GW prices - maybe he’ll inflate it to meet customer expectations? I’m only half kidding…
I wouldn’t be surprised if he made the AoW gladatorial system based more on groups. If he did this it would make sense to eventually have support groups for all the main Avatars, which would include the CD one.
