Victoria Miniatures is making "Arcadians", which are basically the old metal Cadian models revamped in resin, and with female troopers.

They look awesome, but are limited in armaments for now.

I hadn't seen those yet. They look great. Victoria makes some good stuff and I really dig that she's switching over to Resins... I keep waiting on her to do something I can use for some Space Wolf Guard Auxilla. :)

Not a fan of the Highland Guard for that? Kilties and Wolves!

Two things:

1. I don't want to pain plaid and I don't imagine Wolves as being Scotsmen in the first place.

2. I imagine kilts to be a tad impractical for war on the surface of an ice world.

The Scots wore kilts to war, but they didn't march in mid January...

Victoria Lamb is in my opinion the only 3rd party sculptor who nails the GW aesthetic, and her sculpting quality is awesome. The day she releases her not-Valhallans I'll be buying a platoon.

I plan on getting some of those penal legion guys she's got... they look great. Jon got some of her Rough Riders I think... that's another good looking unit that nails the GW aesthetic.

Yeah, those Rough Riders. I don't think there's much hope RRs will get much better in the new book. But damn they're cool or at least I thought so when I bought them.

I hope they give them awesome rules... or at the very least solid ones... I've always liked the Rough Rider concept and would love to see them on the tabletop.

They've approached being good a few times, but they are just so damn weak. Hit and run would be great for them, or drop their points or give them one more point of toughness or armour. They are SO close to being useful (not great, but useful and fun) but that is the problem with a lot in the guard codex (and lets face it, almost every codex has a unit or 10 like that at this point.)

Damn that woman! Everytime somebody "rediscovers" Victoria Miniatures, I end up going to the site and wanting to build a whole new IG army. A mixed Victorian/ANZAC force would be cool--and completely unnecessary and beyond my budget.
