I am loving the Forge Fathers from Mantic for Warpath, as a HUGE Squat Fan - they are like a breath of fresh air for me.
I wanted to like the Olley Armies Scrunts, but they (no offense to Bob Olley) aren't quite right - the same goes for the Hasslefree Grymn - GORGEOUS Sculpts, but they weren't what I wanted personally.
When the Kings of War Dwarfs came out - I had the intention of buying a load and converting them. UNTIL I saw such conversions would be near impossible because of the way the models were conceived and posed.
So when the Warpath Forge Fathers were announced, as you can imagine I was over the moon!
I could happily do a 2000 Point Army for Warpath, just out of what I have already (actually more than that LoL) - so I'm "good to go" to a certain extent.
Next I want some BFG's for my Steel Warriors - the problem is I'm not keen on using the Drakkarim Team Heavy/Special Weapons as part of a Steel Warrior Unit. They have a distinct look/feel to them that (in my humble opinion) doesn't fit with/match the Steel Warriors. The arms on the Drakkarim Team members don't join the bodies in the same way as the Steel Warriors either, so just using the arms isn't an option either.
So, it's time to raid my Bits-Box and see what I can come up with.
HOWEVER thats not the main reason for the post, all this Sci Fi "tatting" has turned my thoughts back to my favourite Sci-Fi Wargame of all time "VOR-THE MAELSTROM" - it's only a matter of time before the Forge Fathers get a VOR Army List!
