New figures at Cannes

Recommended Posts

Nice figs. I concur that I'll probably be long beyond caring about what they release  by the time the rest of this stuff gets to the US (why they can't release them simultaneously in both English and French, I'll never know....)

Thanks littlewars, those are all cool. They will be out in Europe this spring. I can't wait. I like Oksana the best, followed by the over the top Haas. I hope the production Hoax is in clear plastic with her legs clear and her body painted like WizKids did with the invisible woman. If the legs are just unpainted, that is lame...

The Georgi and Ramirez should be out in the next month or so... Thoughthammer.com says January...

Many thanks for the pic's Littlewars. They all look great to me. It's a shame TOY and FFG can't get the product to market quicker. The game has some of the nicest pre painted/sculpted minis on the market. If they could get product on the shelves quicker it would generate much more interest in the game. Like others have said, a few map packs also wouldn't go a miss and I would still like to see the Golden Globe Social Club (think that was their name) make an appearance as a new faction. I am unsure why Fied Op's was released when there was so much support already required. If the cards had been a new mechanic for the game I could of understood. I am also surprised to see they got the Minotaur on a standard base. Now that I see him I actually think he looks quite cool.

Here's a pic of the forthcoming troop pack! Their cards also feature a different color scheme to differentiate them:

Lets see here...

Minotaur- Well it looks like the Minotaur is still on a normal sized base - was curious if he was getting a large one or not but had a feeling it would be due to the Pathfinder system.

Horbringer - Thank god he does not have that large eagle on the top of his backpack. Definitely came out better than I was expecting since I figured he would not have a hat and that face mask could have came out wierd looking in sculpt but this will be a nice alternate to Heizinger.

Hoax - Yeas for the clear plastic. It will look ten times better and its always nice to see a mini with a Tommy gun.

Oksana - Do not know much information about this one, but the model seems to be good and will hopefully beef up the Matriarchy some with the giant glove of hers.

And thank god that I can finally get more Schocktruppen!! I weep with so much joy at how much I have been waiting for this. I seriously hope that its a Faction specific troop pack and not all Troops in one box - otherwise this could get expensive because I have some big plans in the works like painting up some Section: KAOS troops with a stripe on the helmet and white masks. The white Union commandos will go great with Novgorod and the winter MacNeal.

Thanks for the pic LW!  And thanks to Sundance for the confirmation that Hoax will be transparent- definitely takes that scupt to 11!

So is it just Hass and Asterios that are Legendary or is there news about Hoad and/or Oksana being legends as well?

Asterios looks a lot better in the sculpt than I would have thought but I still would have preferred that Reich Minotaur with the broken horn instead.  Oksana is definitely my least favorite sculpt in that group.

Awesome news about the extra troop pack.  I too will not be waiting for FFG on many of these figures...

Now you are spoiling us Littlewars. All this info is almost getting me excited about the game again.

Now why isn't FFG releasing this info. It the sort of stuff fans of the game would really appreciate them giving us. Sneak peaks of future pieces are aways good hooks.

Because FFFG doesn't want us to be reminded about the figure packs that have been available for a year and aren't out yet!

Must sell more stuff on ebay to buy this stuff. The troop packs are a must. I guess they are all a must.

It'll likely be part of that Labyrinth expansion but I would imagine he (it?) would either count as a mercenary or NPC that kills anyone in reach via linear path and rolls to see which way it goes at intersections.

Asterios was ment to be part of the Daedalus expansion but there were some production problems so it was decided to release the figure seperately from the map and token components.

Also there were a few comments on various forums about was it right for a classical Greek character to be involved in the Tannhauser universe.

I think the figure looks great and I'll be getting it from France when it's released along with the other three figures.

If you are screaming for new news on the figures, keep an eye on the ToY website (it is the official French Tannhauser website which Google Translate helps  in reading its contents tremendously). The only slightest  'fluff' we have seen for any the new figures is Oksana Gusarenko (the link includes Google Translate). It wasn't much. For much more and far superior translated material, see the Code Breakers forum section at Tannbunker

Now I'm really REALLY hoping that FFG will bring these miniature packs faster. Lets say it sucks that you know that the figure packs are released 1 year ago but you're waiting for an english translation. Ofc I know some time goes into translating, redesign and getting it all shipped to FFG. But I had no clue why it had to cost more than 1 year.
