Mentioned on Oct 5th I couldn’t resist the coolness that was PuppetWars new troopers. Well, a small parcel slathered with Polish stamps arrived the other day and I thought it would be worth a blogging this small project. So…
Secured with bubble wrap in a sturdy box. Which was good ’cause they’re resin and it’s a long trip from Poland. Recently bought the MERCS House 4 box set from a eBay seller, who stuffed the box in an envelope. Result: box smashed, pieces loose in package. Nothing was lost but kinda sloppy.
Here’s the sprues:
Obviously legs, torsos with arms/weapons, and heads. My batch was clean, crisp, with a little flash here and there. Nothing an Xacto can’t take care of. Components allow you to pose and mix/match to some degree, but they’d get redundant after a couple squads. Still, a larger force would have a nice consistent appearance and the action pose dynamic is good. (Hate the chorus line/on parade look)
Here’s the headless troopers on a nice set of Fenris Resin bases: (You need some of these)
So to end this portion, I’m pleased with the shipping, the figs, the pose-ability, the broad potential of these Troopers. Next I’ll work up a suitable color-scheme and get to painting.
Now if PW would release a complete 5-man squad of their Strike Armour, I’d place another order
