Oh dear, so much opportunity waisted, if they had done a plastic slann mage priest they would of sold like hotcakes, instead its more finecast, and underwhelming new releases, and as many as I can count on half a hand.........and another special edition book *double facepalm* GW go home, your drunk.
I must say I really like the release. I feel the Terradons new sty isn't that fantastic but I absolutely adore Gor Rok. So sweet.
One thing I must add, is that does anyone else see conversion potential for the Bastiladon as a Squiggoth? Cover it in armor panels and orky glyphs, give it a larger lower jaw with tusks, you have a trukk sized squiggoth right there.
Dat Bastilidon. I actually really like it. The characters a a bit meh, Terradons are no worse but no better than their previous incarnations, and the Carnosaur is plastic, which is an improvement, but that's about it.
Think the stegadon looks cute and the bastilladon (stupid name btw) looks cuddly.
The monsters are actually rather fun. Not exactly grimdark gothic but great toy potential.
I sooooo want a bastilladon as a fluffy toy.
Carnosaur/Troglodon: I really like it, it looks fecking huge and the pose is good. The riders are nicely posed as well I think.
Bastiladon: Not a huge fan of this one seeing as it looks pretty much exactly the same as a Ankylosauras. There's using something as a referance and the start of a concept and then there is that... direct copy. The snake weapon is kinda a cool idea though.
Terradon/Ripperdactyl Riders: Designwise for the Terradons... somebodies been watching too much Avatar I think. The head is particular looks to be a spitting image. Love the bases though.
Tetto'eko: Skin on a slann seat? Cool. Nice pose.
Gor-Rok: Pose is cool. Not a huge fan of the paint job though. There is white and there is that...
Skink Priest: A bit OTT with the feathers but still it's not bad.
Overall the Skinks seem to be getting a bit bigger and taking on design features in the head area of the old Sauras minis which I'm not a fan of but overall I think it's some pretty good releases.
