.Craig at Critical Mass Games, dropped this little taster into my inbox..... 15mm Protolene Ayame Assaultsuits.
Available later in the year....but available NOW are last week's new release. There are 4 Agaamid infantry packs for the Kaamados Dominion and 3 new Mercenary packs, the Astagar (snakemen), Ygs Fighters and Mercenary Drop Troops.
The Ygs Fighters are by far my favourites from the new Mercenary releases. There's just something about the figure with the helmet that makes him a great non-human intergalatic cop. The miniatures have a great deal of character and I think over and above being characters in their own right they will make good corporation mercs or starport security in games such as Mutants & Death Ray Guns.
It's difficult to know what to say about the Kaamados Dominion Agaamids Battlesuits - they break with 15mm conventionality and you know, when you put a platoon of them tightly packed in a ship's corridor (yes, I have a platoon worth), they are effectively menacing. I visualise them advancing slowly but determinedly like the Battlesuited Mondoshawan arriving at the beginning of Fifth Element.
The photo below shows the relative size of the new Agaamid minis against a Critical Mass Light Recon trooper.
Even if you have no space for an army of Agaamids in their own right, these minis could potentially provide some interesting colour and heavy firepower to any human or even alien force in the form of robotic infantry or synthetic drones.
