...I have some of the castings from the Anvil Industry Kickstarter to show you. First off I have to tell you that the following photos do not do justice to the quality of the sculpting and resin casting on these very new items. They are almost flawless and virtually devoid of mould lines (in fact apart from a little flash on one of the figures I haven't as yet actually seen a mould line!). Very, very impressive!
I'm not a big fan of great-coated figures but the six Unity Guards (I have their commander too but the photo was too poor to post) wearing them below are probably the best example of such figures i've seen...(they come as two-part bodies - torso and legs - with heads attached)
The Spectre Operative team are superb and are again two-part bodies (as above) but have separate heads (the set I have arrived with six heads - four fully covered by face mask and visor/goggles and two 'character' heads, one with part of the visor/goggles flipped back onto the side of the helmet and the other with both parts of the visor/goggles flipped back and the lower face mask removed. Clever design for the visor/goggles - love it!). On the sprue with the heads are a couple of grenades and ammo mags along with the now obligatory 'urban rubble' and a gun barrel extension, which you can see two of the Operatives carrying on their backs, that can be added to one of the weapons if so desired.
Next are two absolutely stunning Republic Commando Snipers
and a character figure, Republic Strike Commander Idaho Yoshida )two-part figure - body and weapon), who is wearing Japanese Samurai influenced additions to his armour befitting the wonderfully sculpted Oriental features revealed by the removed face guard which he carries on his left hip. Miniature perfection!
