Retribution Myrmidon Models
These previews have been popping up all over the Privateer Press front page lately. I haven't checked the forums, I don't ave to, I know these are getting mixed reviews from polar opposite ends of the spectrum. Some will feel these sci-fi mecha have no place in the gritty world of the steampunked Iron Kingdoms, others will absolutely be in love with the sci-fi edge and otherworldliness these have. I am leaning towards the latter.
It appears switching to plastic is a great moce as it allows for huge models that have amazingly smooth lines and architecture. The one flaw to the above heavy Myrmidon is the head. That lower 'rivet' looks too much like it could be an eye if painted right, coupled with the unfortunate seam right below it, it looks to me like a duckbill. With that high crest, you could EASILY paint it up as a Parasaurolophus, seriously, check it out!
