I was determined to be unimpressed..........
Having listened to the fanboy ravings of the guys in blue polo shirts I thought "meh"
I missed the "big launch" so wandered into my local GW just around the corner from the office the other lunchtime on the offchance they might have obtained the odd tub of Dheneb Stone or Calthan Brown paint...........no such luck its coming by camel caravan from China where its manufactured apparently.
So there they were the new resin Torquemada Coteaz (this probably wont mean much if you play AoA and the new Dark Elf Assassin ..........which will..........B-)
I'm going to have to eat my words - they're amazing - the Assassin is ONE piece of resin cast on a sprue.
Inquisitor Lord Coteaz is in three parts.
Despite the price hike and the furore about miscastings I couldnt see a single blemish on my models.
Score: 9/10 - not convinced by the price rise for a cheaper material, made up by the casting quality is much crisper and the tiny details stand out even to my old four eyes.........
