Another month another selection of great new releases from Corvus Belli.
Celestial Guard Hacker
This model is crying out for an acrylic hologram to look at. The only other issue I have is that the poses means something has to go under his left foot, which will be a fiddle if you need to swap the rock out for something that suits your baseing style.
Wildcat with Heavy Rocket Launcher
Fully armoured female model? Tick. Substantial looking Rocket Launcher? Tick. Rubbery left elbow joint? Tick. I hope it's just the angle of the the photo, because otherwise this is a great model.
ALEPH Support Pack
Another combined package of the type Corvus are releasing for each Faction in the game. The Sophtect is a model that does very little for me, and while they fit with the aesthetics of the robots in the Faction the back packs of the Yudbots look incongruous. There's little to say about the Netrods, apart from that they look prone to bending or breakages.
The Tohaa models are really pushing the boat out with each release (the only disappointing model so far having been the Diplomat. The pose is nice, and the detail looks fantastic.
Lastly we have the Biscards. First thing to note is the look of the unit feels oddly dated. A mix of the closed up poses, style and paint scheme reminds me of old GW models. Possibly I'm judging harshly. The mix of weapons is also odd, with three rifles and an assault pistol. I get the feeling one model isn't going to see much action.
Overall a good month, with only the bigger box sets letting things down. I think the hacker is the model of the month for me, with the Gao-Rael a close second.
