    Thanks for the pictures.

    The miners look nice, but not nice enough to replace the ones I already have..

    Miners look ok, but that pony!! Arrrrghhh!!!

    So basically it's the BFSP Pony, with bits from the cannon sprues in the cart, and the telescope thing from the cannon kit on the ponies back, oh yeah with a spike and a lever!! way to go GW sculpters! (or is it tresses!!!??? - if it is my old custom title may return!!!)

    Re: New Dwarf Mega set pic (and new plastic miners)...

    Aha, so there are some new miners, I thought so

    Not bad, I'm torn on them. On the one hand I think they do fit nicely with the rest of the Dwarfs, but I still would've liked a bit more variation in the poses. It's not as easy with Fantasy as it is with 40K since they have to line up and all, I know, but nevertheless, I can't help but feel Fantasy's been slacking in this aspect lately. Older units like the Skaven, Marauders, Dark Elves, etc, all allow for plenty of multi-posing. But the new batch like these miners and the new chaos warriors just seem too samey for me.
    When did GW release something? Was it plastic or metal? Who sculpted it? Come find out:Fantasy, 40K, LOTR, BFG, Blood Bowl, Epic, Inquisitor, Man O' War, Mordheim, Necromunda & Warmaster

    Ahhh, here they are... looking nice, better than the current, metal ones and much more "conversion friendly". Pitty I'll miss the ponny and the drill as I have no intention to buy all those minis again. Might have to hunt for it on E-Bay though... If only GW be nice and put the ponny into the Miners box (blasphemy, I know)

    Actually, from what I understand it is part of the miner box set. That's obviously speculation, but it makes sense I think...

    Wow, that pony sure is a huge disappointment. I could make a few of those with the junk in my bits box. Shame on the sculptor.

    Re: New Dwarf Mega set pic (and new plastic miners)...

    As I said, blasphemy. GW thinks about its consumers...? But if its true I'll certainly buy a box or maybe even two just for conversions.

    Dumb boy question: It's the "175" the price in dollars or pounds?

    It's $175.

    The picture is a promo poster from US account managers.

    Lovely miner models... really, really nice. Pleased to see the successful trend of Dwarven plastics continuing. There's a great army core there and I've got to say that for 100 that's an amazing deal. Just think what could be made.

    20 Warriors (Double handed weapons, just to look awesome) + Full Command
    225

    20 Longbeards (Shields + Full Command)
    265

    20 Rangers (Quarrellers + Shields + Full Command)
    285

    10 Thunderers
    140

    10 Thunderers
    140

    20 Miners (Full Command + Steam Drill + Blasting Charges)
    300

    Cannon
    90

    Organ Gun
    120

    1565 Points. Add a couple of characters and a single unit (Slayers?) and suddenly you've got a sizeable + characterful army. An amazing deal by any standards and with that number of excellent quality plastics they could have included a chain smoking hippy dragon slayer instead of a steamdrill pony and I would have been happy.

    Looks like I'll be collecting Dwarves and not Orcs as a second army then! Unless the next megaforce convinces me otherwise I guess...
