I got a confirmation mine have been shipped.

From the photos i'm not sure what your issues are Amboadine. They look exactly as advertised.

Yeah, I mean from my point of view, they were always intended as back row filler witch elves anyway. They're much cheaper than GW, I don't expect super top notch quality.

"Good enough" is good enough. And that's what these are for me anyway. YMMV.

I think it is more the comparison with the models I have previously received from them have been of a much higher quality. By themselves there is not much wrong with them, I have just come to expect more from AoW. The metal models I also received are absolutely beautiful.

His issue is the faces don't even have teeth. They look like crap compared to the GW ones which do have teeth.

i agree, they are not on par with their earlier stuff, but not bad.

No complaints anyway, i'v Got enough witches now for an all khaine list and/or a suitable unit a can use as sisters and it didnt cost me 120 euro's
They look like they are going to take some time to assemble though

Anyone else having difficulties gluing them to the bases? Their feet are tiny!

Have you tried sanding the bottom of the feet a little?

No I'll give that a try. Was going to use a bit of green stuff too...

Well, mine finally arrived. Being that I pre-ordered them in early March, and they shipped in mid December, it was about time! I put together a few just to get a sense of things.

The contents:

Yep - they come with 20mm bases. I think there was some uncertainty around base size somewhere earlier in this thread.

First impressions: kind of scary upon first glance tbh, but with some work I think they'll be fine. Problem number one is that yes, they will require a LOT of work. Lots of mould lines and flashing to clean up. Gluing them doesn't seem to be a problem with just regular super glue - it seems to bond to the PVC plastic these are made of much better than the GW plastic. That said, there is very little contact area between those dainty feet and the bases, so I'm foreseeing some trouble down the road there.

I'll give a tentative thumbs up for now.

Well, for a certain value of "reasonably soon." They just arrived today.
