Apart from they fact that they are extremely silly, they're pretty nice models. :)

I never understood why walking talking lizards and hobbits are "cool" but ducks aren't, then again i'm a Donald duck fan;)
I'll still buy them for warhammer, gotta be able to use them as some kind of Dogs of War unit...

I like the idea of those Ducks, added to Roman Apes and Apes with guns, there is some good stuff out there if you know where to look

A neutral shade of black.

These are awesome. Beastmen warband, much?

I'm of the understanding that these are in support of Mongoose's revival of the Runequest RPG. Does it seriously have a "duck" player race?

It sure does, quite a common race in older rpgs:)

From the Rpg

Duck
A race cursed during the Great Darkness by the gods for
not siding with them against the forces of Chaos, Ducks
are a twisted and embittered people.
Whether they were once human given a comedic form or birds cursed with
flightlessness and intelligence is not known but they are rarely given high regard by other races and have suffered from the attentions of tyrants many times in their history.

Ducks are often suspicious and mistrustful of others, rarely expecting an even break.
Many turn to petty crime or other malicious behaviour but a small number manage to find a place in the world where their talents are valued by friends

This (http://www.estop.ca/catalogue1/rq3applelanebig.jpg) brings back a lot of wonderful memories :cries:
But the Mongoose miniatures seem to have quite blunt beaks.
Look at this (http://solegends.com/citle/citle1980/storemo/moRunequestDuck.htm) one.
