So I’ve started an Abyssal Dwarf army for Kings of War, and ended up with two different units of Decimators, and so far I’m not pleased with either. Does anyone know when Mantic will be releasing plastic Decimators, or can someone point me to good alternatives? Because thus far, I’m really, really frustrated with my options for Decimators at the moment.
First up, the Mantic Decimators I received in the Abyssal Dwarf Mega Force the other day. These guys are lame.
1) They look terrible. Particularly the ones with the piece that goes on their helmets. At least the ones with the pewter heads look a bit better.
2) They’re incredibly top heavy, so they fall over all the time.
3) They’re incredibly difficult to rank up. I can’t tell you how long I spent trying to assemble these guys so they could rank up, and I dread the idea of the trouble I’d have to go through to get another 10 and try to get them to rank up as a Regiment.
I also ordered another 10 models from Russian Alternative.
