Saw Najo's thread and thought it might be a useful way of getting some opinions from you guys (so please excuse my unoriginality, Najo).

I'm really new to WFB, but I've read some widely varying opinions about the models themselves. For example: Bloodletters. I think the new models absolutely dominate over the chunky old axe-wielding guys, but I've seen that some old-school players/modellers loathe the new models. Is it that people get attached to 5th/6th edition stuff due to many hard-fought battles with them, or is it a liking for particular style of sculpt?

I dig the more (what I see as) more "realistic", proportional stuff, and I find the chunkier cartoonish stuff pretty ugly and/or comical. But anyway... I'm keen to hear your opinions.

TOP 3 MODELS

1. Chaos Dwarfs Earthshaker Cannon
2. (new) Cold One Knights
3. Grail Reliquae


WORST 3 MODELS (and unsolicited comments)
1. Clanrats
2. Dragon Ogres (I pretty much feel sorry for anyone who plays Beasts, and I dearly hope they get re-done)
3. Bloodthirster (what's with the wings??? ...and the whip??? ...and the fists??? Is this guy a Pokemon??? Horrible...)

2. shaddow warriors (the new models there too, the old were good)
3. cant remember a third one right now

We'll go for the 21st century models, to avoid a very long walk down memory lane and the obvious "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot was that?" from them yun' uns'...

Yays:
1. Bel'akor (I just can't keep my eyes off the thing... and I bought three!)
2. Doomseekers (gotta luv them even crazier stunties1)
3. New Cold Ones... YUMMY!

Nays:
1. New plastic Ghouls.
2. Dragon Ogres.
3. Old Metal Ghouls.

Honorable Mention Yay: Many of the new Dwarf lords and heroes are really great!

Infamous Almost-made-it Nay: Ogre Kingdom Gorgers. One body, two diff arms and heads... All equally hideous!

But here I am, still hoping my meager converting skills can do something about the 10 I got at a dogbin for peanuts and a couple of pocket dustbunnies...

Hmm...

Best 3:

1) Archaon - I know this is probably a bit 'typical' but seriously, I don't even like Archaon and I thin the model is amazing >.<

2) Old Daemonettes - I really dug these >.< they were very much in the realm of "... not sure if want..." which is precisely how a Daemonette should be imo.

3) The new Chaos Knights - They have REALLY grown on me (like, head growing out of my elbow growing >.>) and I pretty much have to get some now.

Worst 3:

1) Minotaurs - <;_;> They're so... *****.

2) Dragon Ogres - Also very ***** <_ _>;

3) Bloodthrister - It just looks... wrong... on so many levels. And not in the good "omg Chaos!" way - but in the "... you got beat with an ugly stick" kinda way. Its mostly the head that really does it.. it just looks... meh.

Thats just me of course <,<

Best 3
1. Valten, Exalted of Sigmar
Not usually a huge fan of the Empire stuff, but I will admit that Valten (Exalted) is probably one of the most beautiful minis GW has ever released. I bought one just to paint it, something I very rarely do, considering I can barely afford to maintain my own army as it is. ;)

2. Dark Elf Cold One Knights
Despite some issues with the poor sprue layout, I firmly believe they are hands down one of the best looking plastic kits available. From any game, not just WHFB. :lol: The mounts themselves are nothing short of incredible. I remember when photos of the 3-up hit the scene, there was collective disbelief from many that such fantastic, detailed models could possibly be for rank and file troops. It *had* to be for a character model.

3. Wood Elf Lord with Great Weapon
This one inches in as a favorite. OMFG, I hate fighting Wood Elves, but man, they have a (mostly) beautiful minis line, and this particular model is the best example of the bunch.

Honorable mentions:
Dragon Ogre Shaggoth - Just incredible. Love it
Hellcannon - Beautiful model, even more impressive in person
Dark Elf Executioners - best looking rank and file infantry infantry in the game, imho
Bel'Akor - Need I say more?
Horrors of Tzeench - I love the new horrors... Very netherworldy and bizarro


Worst 3
1.) 6th edition Dark Elf War Hydra
Easily one of the worst models GW has ever released (despite the nice looking beastmasters). The new 7th edition Hydra completely blows it away. I know it's not a current model, but I really needed to add it because I know some folks (who are insane) are still using it. At least Nagash the Evil Clown isn't really usable anymore. ;)

2.) Tomb Kings Bone Giant
Terrible, terrible model. Oddly proportioned, ridiculous head dress, etc. It just looks *bad*

3.) Ogre Kingdoms Gorgers
Ugh. I *love* the OKs, but the gorgers are just awful. I hate their faces, their pose, etc.

4.) Bloodthirster
Ok, more than 3, but this one had to make the list. The face, the wings, the hands, the whip, etc. Everything about this model is bad. I would pony up the cash for the Forgeworld Bloodthirster before ever fielding this little embarrassment.

Dishonorable Mentions:
Ogre Kingdoms Yetis - A solid unit with great rules that I never, ever use because the models suck ass. Almost as bad as the gorgers.

Dragon Ogres - Suffer from 4th/5th edition Ogreness. REALLY need an update, especially since the OK ogres make them look like complete dorks.

Harpies - Just ugly and 2 dimensional. Really would like to see an update.

EDIT: Oh, and the Minotaurs. Ugh, they seriously need an update.

Favourites:
1: The old daemonettes, I've got to find myself some more (the boobworm was a favourite as well)
2: Grave guard.
3: The kroak model.

Dislikes:
1: The screaming bells grey seer, why can't they replace him with the thanqual model?
2:The old lizardmen sculpts (I'm probably the only one).
3: Clanrat club foot syndrome, the rest of the model suits me though.

24-10-2008, 12:42
Worst:

1) Great Unclean One


Just curious, do you dislike the GUO because you dislike shapless blobs, smile and pus(as in the essence of Nurgle) in gerenarl, or is it because you think that the current incantation of the GUO model is bad because it doesn't mtach the fluff, he doesn't look jolly or for some other reason?

BigbyWolf
24-10-2008, 12:53
Best 3:
Grimgor Ironhide
Ushabti
Champion of Nurgle (mounted with scythe)

Worst 3:
Plastic Dragon (I don't see why people like it- it looks like a worm with wings!)
Nagash (I know it's an old model, but it's awful!)
The last version of the Chaos Knights (not seen the new ones yet, but the last ones were pretty shoddy)

I also love most of the old metal dragons, there's nothing like having a centre piece that ways more than the rest of your army....

@ MonkeyLord, just a little comment. I don't know that much about it, but I believe the bone giant is not in fact a dead giant, but more a construction of different stuff. So being oddly proporioned is not actually weird in this one.

Now my list. I shall try to refrain from "orcs, orcs, orcs" for the best three...

Top:
1- Be'lakor
Excellent model. Has everything it needs. Maybe a few hooks/chains less, but that's just a minor thing. I bought one, but since I had no use for it after beasts were seperated, I gave it away.

2- Badruk 'Eadsplitta (had to put one...)
This is how an orc is supposed to look like! No silly jawlines like we see nowadays, just plain and brutal!

3- Dark elf cold one knights
Especially the cold ones, of course, but overall just awesome sculpts!

Bottom:
1- Dragon ogres
Bad, bad, bad. Should be replaced when the beasts books comes out, just as the minotaurs.

2- Vampire counts bat swarm
They just look rediculous...

3- Daemon princes
And I mean the ones they just got rid of (can't find them in the store, at least). Good riddance if you ask me.

Top three:
1. Belakor
2. Archaon
3. Mannfred on nightmare.

Worst three
1. Kroxigors - (both 6th edition and the pics of the one for the up and coming release) serious how hard is it to sculpt a decent dinosaur/arnold schwarzenegger cross?

2. Lollipop bat swarms - would you like a flake with that?

3. Ogre kingdom gorgers - the pose alone is terrible and un-naturalistic, the potential for this along with a lot of the artwork too means there was no excuse for the sculpts.

24-10-2008, 13:24
I have so many favourite's it's impossible to choose 3!

Kurt Helborg - amazing, all we need now are knights like this.
Wood elf nobles - all of them except the spear one.
Slann - superb model.
Konrad - A mad frothing maniac who looks just the part.
Questing Knights - wonderful characterful models.
Be'lakor - Lovely.
Manfred - both types. This is what vampires should look like.
Dwarf lord with Great Weapon.
Thorgrim Grudgebearer.
King Alrik Ranulfsson.

Count Demandred
24-10-2008, 14:07
Best Three

Khorne Lord on Juggernaught
Best. Model. Ever.

(still don't quite like the idea of Juggernaughts, but jeesh is this model awesome)

Wood Elf Lord with Great Weapon
Majestically ominous model, has an element of quiet forboding; almost a feel of helplessness, as if he's ready to meet his death head on.

Nice captured motion too.

Mannfred von Carstien
The model exhudes power, it just epitomises the feral/bestial/savage side of Vampires.

With a LOT of special mentions:
- Chaos Khorne Champion on Foot, Chaos Lord on Daemonic Mount, Be'lakor, Dragon Ogre Shaggoths
- Blood Knights, Konrad von Carstien
- Cold One Knights
- Slann-Mage Priest, Kroq'gar on Carnosaur
- High Elf Prince and Mage on Dragon, High Elf Hero with Sword and Shield
- ALL the Warrior Priests, Mounted Valten
- Waywatchers



***


Bottom Three

Black Knights
Generic spears-up pose. Funny looking heads. Steeds are unproportionately skinny. Just absolutely horrible models all-round.

Chaos Ogres
Old and horrible.

Dark Elf Dreadlord on Foot
What's with the stupid Dragon perched on his shoulder? He's wielding a weapon primarily used for entertainment, and an un-inspired pose.

Just horrible compared to other new moulds.

Other, er, 'special' mentions: Kroxigors, Malekith, Dragon Ogres, Necromancers, One-winged Vampire Lord (it's actually quite a cool, though I just hate the fact he's only got one wing...)

Crispian25
24-10-2008, 14:28
Top:
1: Crom the Conqueror: decked out in weapons, like any good Chaos Lord
2: Grimgor: a large orc yelling a challenge and carrying a big axe (how an orc should be)
3: The Masque

Worst:
1: Dragon Ogres: I want, but I'll be damned to have any model sticking it's tongue out
2: Minotaurs: horribly proportioned, goofy faces, and human feet
3: New Bloodletters: just too wonky

Odin
24-10-2008, 14:35
Well, if we're talking about current models...

Best 3:
Khorne Lord on Jugger
Wood Elf Noble with Great Weapon
Archaon

Worst 3:
Chaos Trolls
Chaos Ogres
Treekin

..though I collect Wood Elves and Chaos, so looking at my selections it seems I might have a slight bias!

Of course, the giant clown Nagash was probably the worst ever.


I'm surprised so many people have picked the Dragon Ogres. Yes, they're looking a bit dated, but they were good models at the time, and I still quite like them. Unfortunately one of mine is armless (I used in in a Daemon Prince conversion, and can't get separate bits now).

I. There was this old grey seer model holding a poison wind globe that was really stunning. I don't know where I could get my greedy mits on one, though.

II. The 5th edition Lizardmen range (not the plastics). I loved the metal saurus and skinks, and the old salamander is unquestionably superior to the new scrawny, hang-doggy looking thing. It's also my favorite GW monster ever.

III. The new skeleton kit is gorgeous. The models look so good fully ranked-up. I've purchased 8 boxes of these bad boys.

Worst

I. Nagash is comically hideous.

II. There are many, many god-awful vampires, I am completely incapable of selecting one to be "worst." The old Strigoi, the new Von Carsteins, the old Von Carsteins... and every single Lahmian vampires fit into this category.

III. The Chaos Ogres should be filed under a "What were they thinking?" subcategory. Seriously, how could GW even consider unleashing these metal catastrophes on the buying public.

@ MonkeyLord, just a little comment. I don't know that much about it, but I believe the bone giant is not in fact a dead giant, but more a construction of different stuff. So being oddly proporioned is not actually weird in this one.

Oh I know. I have the TKs book, as I was considering collecting them as an additional army. The bone giant doesn't *look* like a construct at all. It looks like a giant's skeleton. Well, a retarded giant with rickets, anyway. It just isn't a good looking model. Granted, I think this is largely because it is metal, and the sculptor (Colin Dixon, I believe, who generally does pretty good stuff) had to make some aesthetic sacrifices to make sure such a large, heavy model didn't suffer from weak joints or structural support... But even so, it just looks bad. I think the whole concept needs re-envisioning.

Bottom 3

1: Well Nagash is woefully *****, a classic in the hall of shame
2: I don't really like the current Marauder models (the infantry ones), they all look like Iron Maiden fans to me..
3: can't think of any more models in wfb i don't like, but Chaplain Lemartes in 40k is a horrendously ugly model

For myself in no particular order based off of the armies I play as I am drawn to them usually because of a model or several:

Top

1. Ogre Tyrant
2. Lion Chariot
3. Plague Monks

Honorable Mentions:

Ogre Hunter
Yheetee
Sword Masters
Dragon Princes
Savage Orc Boar Boys
Centigors

I will base the bottom more on newer models as 10+ year old models shouldn't be in the same category unless they are that good.

Bottom:

1. Warhawk Riders
2. Chosen Warriors
3. All daemon characters released so far.

I think we can all agree the worst model is by far Nagash.

I mean...were they trying to make him look like Pennywise or something?

Top.
1. The new Chaos Lord on daemonic mount makes me drool a bit. itīs just plain evil.
2. The WE Lord with DHW is great and the first WE I bought and painted.
3. The Vampire lord with the bat wing is just great stuff.

Bottom.
1. All Chaos Dwarves with big hats. I allmonst quit WFB as I thought everything was going in this hiorrible direction.
2. The new Ghouls. I dont field this unit though I have a VC army.
3. The Chaos Ogres are super ugly.

I'm surprised by some choices
- Dragon Ogres - I like them as they are. New daemonettes are Ok except for the 5th ed? claws. Certainly nowhere close to the sexy old ones
- GUO why do so many like this model?
- Clanrats/Slaves and even Storm Vermin are uninteresting but they look like rodents and I cant think of how they could be improved

Best 3
1) WE Highborn

Good:
1 - Mounted Lord of Nurgle - I turned him into a Wight King for my Undead, with all the nurglesque icons removed!
2 - Gotrek and Felix - They ooze loads of character
3 - Old Daemonettes
Honourable Mention: Mordheim Witch Hunter Captain (The guy with torch and sword). While not WFB, its similar :D

Bad:
1 - Captain Shrike - I think thats his name, the guy from Raven Guard. It has the most awkward pose I've ever seen on a model.
2 - Clanrats - Monkey Hands says it all.
3 - Orc Boar Riders, and the boars too

Best plastics are...

1. corsairs :so much dynamic badassery from the single and whole unit alike.

2. corpse cart: such a disgusting and gruesomely detailed model

3. cold ones. truly the peak of sexy detail.

3. dire wolves, not feeling them either

worst metals are...

1. war hydra handlers... the new monster is great but the beastmasters dont just look like a step down from the previous ones, they just loook terrible by appearance of quality

TOP 3 for me

1. New LM Stegadon kit
2. Carnosaur
3. DE Coldone Knights

Honorable mention: pretty much all of the new WOC range. except for the new Daemon prince. He looks goofy as hell and the wings are to angular.

Worst 3 for me.

1. Any old Ogres ( dragon ogres and old chaos ogres ).
2. 6th ed Kroxigors although they fit well now with S4.
3. Old Chaos Dwarves. I much prefer the Hell cannon crew.

Honorable mention: The new LM TempleGuard's musican hand holding the drum is aweful. Other than that there perfect.

TOP 3

1. Archaon.

Simply the best model GW have ever produced imo. Stunning.

2. Belakor

No other Daemon model comes close to him. Hes only behind Archy because hes a little bit too small for my liking. Scale him up by 20% and he'd be first.

3. Dark Elf executioners (-exept the mus)

There are plently of single models i could put here but tbh they deserve a mention as clearly the best looking warhammer regiment of all time.


So there W0lfs fav character, monster and regiment.
Honourable mentions;
Dark elf cold ones, Wood elf way-wather noble, Konrad von carstein, Old Daemonettes

Worst 3

1. Dragon ogres

Nothing comes close.

2. Daemonettes

They are *****.. and the old ones were perfect. Plastic models that looked like the metal ones would have seen me buy ether a witch elf COUNT-AS cult of slaanesh army or a slaanesh daemons army without a doubt.

3. New chaos knights.

Yes there a models worse, yes i own 20 of these models. They are however ugly from every concevble angle and even after long deliberations i couldnt find a way to make them look nice (i even filed every pointless spike off.. like the 20 odd per horse).

Honourable mentions;

Witch elves, Chaos ogres, Dire wolves, Spirit hosts (but then who buys these?).

14-04-2009, 06:12
Im amazed that so many people like the GUO. It has to be the most disgusting model (i don't mean that in the Nurgle sense) in the GW range! Its clunky, static, looks like a badly drawn cartoon character and while it has a lot of detail, its all so badly sculpted that it just looks like someone sneezed (once again not in the Nurgle sense of things) on it rather than actually spending the time to scultp it properly. just my honest opinion.
