Universal Head

I hate to rain on the parade of guys fulfilling their dreams, but you have to come up with something a damn site more interesting thematically, sculpturally and mechanically to induce me to part with that kind of money and invest in yet another miniatures tabletop skirmish game. There’s just too much competition. I’m really beginning to think the industry is falling into a rut, at the risk of sounding like a doomsayer.

One thing I blame is 3D generated models. It may make miniatures cheaper to produce (a frightening thought, considering they’re already so expensive), but I think the personality and flair that comes from a hand-sculpted mini has been completely lost. The minis for all these Kickstarter games are all starting to look the same. That’s why I backed Wrath of Kings, because at least those models had some personality.
