June 2009 Empire Releases

First things first. After seeing all this sweet kit, I want to see an Empire army come through the studio. At the end of this article I've got a a deal cooking...

You can see the entire Empire range here. In the last year, there have many spectacular, unheralded releases for this line. There are numerous evocative models.

Empire Greatsword Plastics $41.25 USD
This box set contains 10 multi-part plastic Empire Greatswords. This 132-piece kit includes: 13 different heads, 12 different arms wielding two-handed swords, six variant bodies, and five different sets of legs. Also included are all the pieces needed to assemble a champion, a musician and a standard bearer, and a host of additional components for customising the unit. Models supplied with 20mm square bases.

Shawn's Comments: I haven't seen this kit, but it seems to have quite a number of parts. This is the most expensive kit I've seen, at a hefty $4.15 per model. This is what is normally charged for metal figures. I don't understand it.

Empire Archers $24.95 USD

This box set contains 10 multi-part plastic Empire Archers. This 107-piece set includes: 10 different archer bodies, 20 different heads, and all of the components needed to assemble one archer as a marksman. Also included are a range quivers, swords, arrows, pouches, and even a dead Orc with an arrow in his gut. Models supplied with 20mm square bases.

Empire Steam Tank $57.75

Steam Tanks are monstrous, smoke-belching creations that rumble towards the enemy, firing deadly cannon balls from their steam-powered guns. The advance of these iron behemoths is terrifying to behold, as arrows ricochet from armoured hulls and enemy warriors are crushed beneath their immense bulk.

This box set contains one multi-part plastic Steam Tank. This 72-piece kit includes: two variations of cannon, an Engineer with choice of three heads, a host of Empire icons, and full interior detailing. Model supplied with a 50mm x 100m base.

Shawn's Comments: A steam tank is one of those units that is such a huge problem that it causes a panic check... in real life. It's a Rare choice for 300 points, so it takes up a good deal of pointage. It helps anchor the Empire line-- it causes Terror, is Unbreakable, and with Toughness 6, Armour Save of 1+ and TEN (yes TEN) Wounds it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

Take one if you want to be mean. Take two if you want to be cruel.

Marius Leitdorf $29.75
Marius Leitdorf is known as the Mad Lord of Averland. He is sullen and morose, and given to bouts of screaming and rage. A skilled swordsman, Marius fights with two blades; a Runefang in one hand and a long-bladed dagger in the other - a style of combat he has mastered better than anyone.
This blister contains one finely-detailed, metal Marius Leitdorf. Model supplied with a 25mm x 50mm base

Shawn's Comments: Like many models in this range, this would make a great generic Captain.
