    Default Eww! Not right!



    Way too \'out-there\'. This is just stupid.

    Even nowadays humans couldn\'t create a fully operational horse-bot.

    I\'m a big fan of this one. The concept and the model, and it looks much better in the flesh than in a skewed scan. It\'s OTT for sure, but most Warhammer models are.

    And because \'even nowadays humans couldn\'t create a fully operational horse-bot\' doesn\'t exactly make sense. Nowadays men can\'t summon the winds of magic, daemons don\'t drop from rifts in space and eat our faces off our skulls, there aren\'t Orcs roaming the countryside, but you aren\'t complaining about that!;)

    The sculpt of it is way too necron-ish. I figured that the horse would be at least half-organic.

    This just makes me think of the Toymaker in ChittyChittyBangBang ???

    I don\'t mind the idea of a mechanical horse, but I think it should have looked a little sillier. Lots of people mention GW having lost their sense of humor, and this might be a step in the right direction. Everyone loves a Nurgle toilet, but the Empire RoboHorse(tm) is OTT. lol

    When I got my issue yesterday me and the eldest boy both loved this model. I thought it was one of the better Empire models I\'ve ever seen. For the most part Empire figs always looked to \"historical\" (read boring) for me. Odd, since I like Historical minis a lot on their own, just not in WFB. Besides Necrons on Horses gives me a cool idea for a Lord conversion. ;)

    See, now something like that I could get behind - especially with an engineer that actually looked a bit like Benny Hill.

    Now I really wish I could sculpt for shyte:drool:

    I actually like the horse a whole lot more than the Engineer. Their hats just don\'t do it for me, and the huge multi barrelled guns don\'t do it for me either.

    Ah well, I\'m not doing Empire anyway :P

    Oh Bloody Hell! I knew I was forgetting something that he looked like!!

    Wonder if we\'ll get an evil version that is a different color and lacks the helmet.

    Default Hmmmmmm.....

    With just a little converting you could use the new \"Special Edition\" Flaming Empire Wizard fig to make it look like it was breathing fire... ;)

    Yeah the feathery hats always made me think Empire armies had elite units of gay strippers. Fabulous.
