That's a mixed bag, isn't it? Some of those women are enough to give you nightmares! :scared:

There's some nice stuff there, that not-Thulsa Doom is great.
But some of it... :?

It seems to vary from the very good, to "what the hell are they thinking trying to sell that piece of crap?"

Look at the mummy kidnaping the girl and then look at the monster beside them! :sick:
What a contrast in quality!

I had to look twice to make sure the Column of Woe wasn't a flat, WTF is going on there? :?

After seeing the stomach muscles on some of those cadavers women I had to look up Jaffa belly pouches to make sure they weren't supposed to be not-stargate minis, but no, those belly slits are diagonal, the figs are just shit.

That crap is going to turn people off from getting the good minis, which is a shame.

Some of the mythical beasts would be great for Conan

I think we've seen some of these before. Some are Kev Adams, and the rather suave mummy I think is Brother Vinni's? (I'd have more use for it without the naked lady, like)

Animals are cool. Some of the mythical ones look a bit odd, and the crocodile out of the water looks much better than the one in. Like Kawasaki said, nice snakes.

Why do all the ladies have their tits out though? Even the guards? Surely armour would be a better choice for any sort of fighter...?

To be fair, tits out was certainly an option for all Egyptian women, judging by source pictures and academic opinion seems to be that breast nudity wasn't an issue (which is an interesting concept from the male perspective :) ). What Egyptians didn't have was breast enhancement technology however.

Some of those figures look useful, I especially like the two games playing sets. But quality does look a bit variable, I'd want to see those figures in the flesh, so to speak.

I don't get it, they are Brother Vinni miniatures in there? As in, exactly the same figures in his webstore? Unless he does a licensing type thing.

On the bright side, the perks format lets people pick and choose which packs they want.

Love those eunuch guards and most of the animals and beasties are ace. When it come to the ladies there are far too many coffee and orange creams in that bag of revels.
