Good work SC. I must say that the Cadian Command squad just doesn't interest me. The Catachans on the other hand look very nice. I like the medic with the white mask, nice touch.
Does anyone know if more models are being released with this first wave, or is this it other than recut boxes of infantry and tanks?

I think these models are all first wavers. I know plastic stormtroopers are supposed to be second wave, which is why we haven't seen any pictures of them yet.

With all the new lizardman stuff out, that army from before is sounded easiesr than ever. Teradactyls, stegadons, .. it will just be expensive, but doable!

The command squad does look a little unimpressive.. however.. keep in mind it's all plastic and will have all the components that are available to the command squad. It will be one of those converter's dream bitz pack type of box.

I had thought I heard a rumour. Is it true that they are resizing the arms on the catachan sprues for re-release? Could just be the paint thinner I drink..

Thats the rumour I heard as well. The command sprue has a couple pumped guys on it, buy nowhere near the roid jockies from the old boxes. A couple of them look really good and proportional as well.

Would be nice. I liked the idea of the jungle fighter guardsmen. But hated the figs. Their chests and arms are bigger than a spacemarines.

I agree 100%. The idea of having a bunch of battle heardened humans in t-shirts fighting giants aliens in the jungle was awesome to me. The mini's were god awful horrible.

When I first started playing 40k, I thought I'd love the Imperial Guard. However, the only stock plastic kit out for guardsmen at the time were the catachans.. and I wasnt willing to drop the cash for the Steel Legion at the time.

Well, as you know I ended up dropping the cash for my all metal Tallarn infantry instead of the ripped roid monsters. And at that time they had just taken the metal box sets away. I had blister packs with 2 lasgun carrying guys in each. Man that was a lot of blisters....

The jungle fighters are supposed to be that huge do to the fact that they come from a high gravity planet. They are known as little ogryns. I read that somewhere. Can't quite remember where.

Well, there a difference between being big overall opposed to having arms that are bigger than your head... and catachans arms were ALL bigger their heads.

The command squads are definetely down sized a bit.. and I think that was something they made up after the relaized what garbage the first catachan kit looked like.. Smile
