I'm concerned about these sculpts...
I bought it simply because the Lucius pattern escape pod was cute.
I mean, look at it, it's like a little drop pod!
I suddenly want fifty of these. This is the best civilian object GW have produced in a while, and it's mine now. Mine.
But that's not really what I wanted to post about. I wanted to voice my bigoted opinion over this sculpt; there's something... wrong, with it, I can't really place it.
Has anyone else noticed? Never mind the fact of it's origin-- China, oddly-- it feels, sort of thick and round. I know the difference between their building casts and their figure casts, and this feels like a building cast. Do you understand? Like there isn't as much detail as there could have been.
Like when a new director takes over an existing series, it's so strange, so different and strange! I don't know if I like it or not...
On the one hand, it's all thick and yucky to the touch, but on the other hand it's weirdly nostalgic, like 90's fisher price... To be sure, it feels like a set of bricks, very nice and solid, but oddly devoid of detail...
THRONE I'm on the fence. What do you think? Do you like the objectives kit? Of course you do, I'm just a snobbish toff!
Bye bye for now.
