Cheers :)

Watcher in the dark? He would stick out like a sore thumb with those floppy robes :o :D

The next sniper is ticking along nicely:

I bought some of the new Kharadron Overlords today and thought I'd share a few scale pix. Before I do, I reckon that they are a bit big for this current army but have potential for a future faction... here they are:









Definitely food for thought... :)

Thanks for the scale shots, very useful

Squats or Dwarves in Space have never really been my thing, but I do like the new GW and Mantic miniatures
I really like this jacket...
but the sleeves are much too long!

The last pic doesn't really work does it.  Monkey arms.
The boots are a far sight better on the new sculpt but kind of remind me of platforms. (Much better sculpting though)

The only reason I have put together all the pictures is because people asked me too :)

I don't think that the two kits (Kharadron and old 1980's Squat) are compatible at all... however some people disagree but that is their choice. I personally won't be using any in my army and haven't really been enthused by them at all really... so they are staying in their box for now.

I think that, with a little effort, they could look great but that would mean bigger heads, sci-fi weapons and a toning down of the 'steampunk' elements... but I am not into doing that at the moment because I have plenty of more pressing things to get on with :)

Three Halfling snipers are now finished with a fourth, kneeling one, on the cork :) :

I love the leaf work.
Is that a chaos dwarf head on the other cork?

Yep :) Very WIP at the moment... it's just a practice sculpt for a commission.

Hopefully... if they are viable for casting (they should be... they'll be resin). I've talked to Rob over at Hysterical Games and warned him that they will be going his way at some point :)
