The series looks cool :) Not another set of collectable minis to chase up :( But on the plus side, the details shown look amazing.

Any idea how the 35mm scale will look next to DF products?

It is mage knight and Hero, horror clix scale. I don't think they look to bad, but then i don't think the 28-30ish mm D&Dminis etc look to big, but there are people who complain that they are to big for DF. Would be rebasing these anyways so it might not be such a big deal.

Now to find a way to get these!

I think i have a source, one of the players in our D&D moved from the UK last year... :) so i know someone with UK contacts!

Ok i have done some digging...
These are being put out by Character Options(Duh same people that make the 5 inch line of figs... think man think, was wracking my brain trying to figure out who made these...)
I got all excited when i saw IN STOCK on their web page, so spent about 5 minutes going through looking at budget, ordering some figures, registering on the site, and get down to the end of the ordering page and BLAM, UK only!!! ***grumble****
be nice if they mention that in the Terms and conditions... (if they do i missed it).
Oh well at least i know know who is making them, and i found a few sites to pre-order from so... goin to pop in an order to see what these are like man can't wait till Feb!

Looks like an old SCIFI film or game like: "It comes from the desert!"

Where did you order them from? On this thread, I believe you said that the manufacturer only ships to the UK?

I ended up going with Forbbiden Planet, Heard decent things from someone about them so tried them there maybe a few US places as well. From what i undersantd (and this is pure speculation based off of a few hints o got when i was trying to track info down) The Figs are "out" the manufacture had them in stock ready for delivery on their page, and i got the "Your order has been processed and despatched." so far for just the "figure" packs that have been shipped, the ones with the Ships (the only place it looks like you can get Capt Jack) is still on Pre-order.

I know what you mean about singles and waiting, but i wanted to get a few to see what they were like, and then will go looking for more if they are any good on E-bay etc. I Will be getting at least 1 Doc at some point (Ship non random pack) so it's all good there, just want a K9 and some cybers and will be happy.

Will let you know as thing progress

Wicked cool will do, will post some pictures etc as soon as they get in, (or close there after).

Says within 10 days, but with the etc holiday so. i expect them in about two weeks. Shipping is usually good from the UK (most stuff in just 5 days but.... well i will give them some leeway.

EXTERMINATE!!!!

They were with the mail man as i left this morning...
I was late to work becuase i was busting them open
ordered 3 of the 7 packs for 21 figs
Packing is more Wizkids than Wotc (ie no set 4 common, 4 uncommon, 1 rare) i got 2 rares in one pack and in the other 2 1 rare (yeah not a great sample size to be definative). Got a decent number of Daleks, but only one cyber, but got 4 of the 6 rares. The Doc, Martha, Sara, and Dalek Sec.
For U Mickey and the Master/Saxon, and some of the Daleks, Down mostly on Commons.

Size wise they look to fall smack into the middle of WotC and Wiz kids, or other 28-30 mm figures.
So i think they will work fine, base is the only issue, it is thicker than anything other than a Wizkids, and 10 sided, and larger than a DDM or GWS base, i think the inner diameter of the decagon is 35m.

Paint wise i like everything but the humans, little shading or detail on martha, mickey, or sara, even the Doc. Daleks are very well done, the painter types might want to add a shading wash or something.

Plastic wise Action figureish, closer to the Reaper than say WotC or Wizkids, but if i had to say which of those it was i would say closer to the WotC than WK, it bends but none of the very thin Dalek plungers were bent.

Combat system seems very basic, a one on one okay i am pitting my Docs Logic against your Master, the player then choses what stat the Master wants to use, you then spin (you could roll a d6 as well) ad your score to the die roll and higher wins. You aren't supposed to show the stat number (on bottom of the figs so you just have to remember your best ones, but er if they are the same on every doc long coat then simple memorization means you know what the other guys has, and same on your side. But since i think the stats are simple stickers, and i don't remember seeing a "doctor" or other name on the sticker thy all could be different so there might not be a set stat on any fig. At this point don't have enough doubles to make comparisons.

So far i like the figs, got a nice selection, they same in scale, and am off to order some more, need more Cybermen!
