That is pretty interesting! for lovers of tolkien I guess.

Also they could work great as Chaos warriors!

Wow, these are awesome! I immediately contacted the seller, I might like to have a few of those!

Great catch! Two units were ordered immediately.

Amazing, they would do as Araby mercenaries, too!

Arab mercenary, cool!

It will fit as well in oriental lists.

Post by: Tzigane on September 26, 2013, 12:12:13 PM
I ordered two as well! :D

Maybe we could come up with fun rules for them as mercenaries?

Maybe something like:

3/3/5+ 80 pts - Terrifying?

3/3/5 seems ok, but terror is serious thing in warmaster. Maybe I will reserve it for huge monsters or super-hero.s

Nice to know about a new 10mm manufacturer  8)

Indeed. What else might he produce?!

True of course. What else could we do to the unit to make them a bit more special than all the others?

These do look good, keen to see any photos in comparison with GW figures

Perhaps they would also be a good proxy for Temple Guard for Araby as they are so distinct.

Temple guard for araby? can you explain it better.

(sorry for the edition of your message, it was a mistake)

Sorry, I meant Royal Guard - the ones that don't get a penalty if the General commands them.

I'll get that fixed for you when mine get here. :)

That would be great!

Just spent rather a lot on eBay - so am hesitating on getting these on spec, as they are a little on the expensive side.

Mmmm.. The evil men could be easily converted to Early Imperial Romans  with those square shields...

Thanks for the comparison pic

No problem.

One of these days I need to get a macro lens or better.
Title: Re: [TJM] - Evil men of the East
Post by: forbes on October 01, 2013, 05:25:33 PM
Thanks for the photos and the review.

One question - do the look similar in size to WM figures? As models are 3D it can sometimes be hard to tell from a pho if they match in when you are looking at the real figures. These certainly do from the front on shots.

Edmund - why would you want to convert to Romans, there are lots of 10mm Romans out there.
Title: Re: [TJM] - Evil men of the East
Post by: Aquahog on October 01, 2013, 06:41:13 PM
I'd say they match Copplestone spot on which I perceive as slightly bigger than GW. I've never had a problem with fielding Copplestone and GW in the same army.
Title: Re: [TJM] - Evil men of the East
Post by: forbes on October 01, 2013, 08:33:08 PM
Good news.

The GW figures don't exactly match each other when you put them side by side - but look fine in when in units on the table.
Title: Re: [TJM] - Evil men of the East
Post by: Aquahog on October 01, 2013, 09:20:17 PM
Exactly. The Bretonnians e.g. are of a quite diminutive build. Must be all that praying to the lady and fasting I guess.
Title: Re: [TJM] - Evil men of the East
Post by: Edmund2011 on October 01, 2013, 11:25:22 PM
It is just an idea. I would not build a roman army from these, but maybe for a specific pose or figure.

Edmund - why would you want to convert to Romans, there are lots of 10mm Romans out there.

Thanks for the review!

I ordered two sets last week, can't wait to paint them up! I hope there will be more of this in the future. :)

A comparison pic. The pack comes with 6 strips (5 different strips variants), but some figures are re-used in the strips.

Thanks Edmund! 

They look brilliant - I've had trouble getting people excited for LOTR 10mm though.

Looking the picture, they are tall, but will be OK for me
