My first disappointment.

| Wednesday, July 20, 2011 | |
I have been pleasantly surprised by all of the WarMachine products I have purchased or come across.  Other then some snobbery on casting that comes from working around the folks who actually pour metal for a living, everything has been fantastic.  A full color faction book for less then the cost of the competitors book, great.  Nice models that come precut from the sprue, and often have widgets cut so you know how arms and legs are supposed to attach.

Until I received my Black 13 in the mail.  Granted they are a first gen sculpt that will hopefully be redone soon but WOW.  Weedy was the first word that came to mind.

What we have in this quick cell phone photo is a comparison between the new "Plastic" Stryker, one of the Black 13, a Trencher, and Reinholdt the gobber.  Stryker and the trencher look close in scale with the trencher bent over, and I'm unsure what the human to gobber scale is but he seems to fit with their builds, but my poor Black 13 look like some malnourished emo kid who will blow away in a strong wind.

I'll still put them on the table and let them run rampant around the board but I do hope they come out with replacement sculpts soon.

Its a common problem with the sculptor of the B13th. I love the models but they look closer to a 25mm scale in a 30mm game.

I wonder if it's Gael Goumon. I remember when he sculpted for Reaper his stuff was also so small.
