New pre-painted Rackham Confrontation minis 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
I just picked up the latest sets (from miniaturemarket.com) and IMHO they are some of the best stuff Rackham has done, either pre-painted or otherwise. Really phenomenal minis.

I picked up the Kelgar & Meliador box, the Rams of Acheron Abysmal skull Unit Box, the Rams Necromancer Skull Unit Box, and my favorite, the Valdenar de doriman & Misan set. They are all spectacular, but the armored warrior in that set (I can't remember who is who) is one of the best pre-painted minis I've ever SEEN. The detail in the sculpt is phenomenal, the pose is great, and the paint job is stunning. It really is just jaw dropping, you have to see it to believe it. Pics as soon as I can, I promise.

The Rackham stuff has been setting the bar super high for pre-painted minis since they started with AT-43, but this time they really out-did themselves. I've been under the impression that Confrontation hasn't been doing so well, which would be a real shame. I would LOVE to see this line catch on. These minis blow every other pre-painted mini out of the water.

Some of them do look awesome! (I've picked up the pistol & rifle dudes to use as Shuul in my Ptolus game).

L - how can we tell EXACTLY which ones come painted? Are they all pre-painted now, or is it still just some of them?

Most of the new Rackham stuff is pre-painted, but the line is Age of Rag'narok. That's the game that uses pre-painted minis, so anything under that heading is pre-painted.

You do have to be careful, though. I'd heard that Rackham was no longer doing unpainted minis, and I grabbed something from Miniaturemarket once that turned out to be unpainted plastic. It's still a great figure, and I do paint, so I wasn't too bummed. But you're right to suspect that just because it looks the same on a website doesn't mean it will come prepainted. And while usually Miniaturemarket is reliable, they don't indicate which are prepainted and which aren't. In fact, these new minis showed on their website as "new arrivals" a few weeks ago, and only after I ordered and waited around and contacted them did they tell me it was a pre-order and they weren't due until early January. D'oh! Info on this stuff can be hard to come by...!

While they do look nice, $20 for 2 figures is why i have stayed away (sure the sale is $15 but add shipping of 4.25 and you are back up to about 20). I admit freely that Kelgar & Meliador and many of them are very nice looking, but darn that's a a lot for two figs.

I have looked at the line, and AT-43 but i just can't justify the price.

Some of the AT-43 terrain bits are awesome. I've been waiting on buying that bunker for a while...

I agree with dudebird, the accesories are great. I've picked up some Elysian Crystals to set the mood in some frozen caverns, they are cheap and huge:

I just recently discovered AT-43 and was blown away by the figures. I really love the Therian army
but the UNA and Red Blok are pretty cool too. Miniature market is probably the best place to buy
from. You might get lucky on ebay but miniature market has a huge at-43 selection
at about 65 percent off retail.

I was planning on using the Therians as line of evolved warforged from the future. Either that
or warforged human hybrids. The Therian back story from the AT-43 game is actually pretty
cool.

If you are in Canada you can get Confrontation dirt cheap at www.meeplemart.com, although they do not have the Lion or Ram factions discounted. I have done a bunch of touch up painting to the Griffin models (great for guards etc.) and they look quite good. I will have to post some pics.
