Holy Crap!!  Ten Thunders at last!  They look amazing... are the riding Yoga balls?  (I'm assuming they're lanterns, but Yoga balls are much cooler!)

Well, ah...I wasn't expecting lanterns (and does that mean they got flying since the last public beta iteration...? :P) But they look very distinctive and cool.

Those are freaking amazing!  Not at all what I was expecting but holy crap that art is good :D  I can't remember if they were still Mercs at the end, but I hope so so that I'm not buying them just to paint haha

Yeah these are absolutely not what I was expecting. I actually don't know what I was expecting by my possibly non-existent expectations have been blown out of the water. 

I feel like I really adore the sculpts for factions I previously had no interest in... so stop that ;)

@necroon said it all already. Ok maybe not. I appreciate that these have a very distinctive stance and pose and you won't make any mistake in identifying them on the table. The individual monks' sculpts are excellent but a little too united thematically, so facing Ten Thunders can be confusing. And spellcasters can often be equally confusing visually.

they look like magic space hoppers to me, sorry

Vanessa has the same spell casting gesture on one hand, if you want to proxy before its release--but given what I said above, please at least give it an oversized lantern somewhere? And a dynamic body which her still stance absolutely does not provide?

The technical term is "rocking out," ma'am.

I come to Malifaux expexting some crazy gremlin to ride a paper lantetn like a rocket. But no, SURPRISE! Thunders.

If nothing else has proven to me that they are infiltrating everyone, this has.

They're recruiting you. It's okay. Just don't accept more favors than you can handle.

Hey, the tech trade has to go both ways ;)

You might ask them if they had some of the Brewmaster's special stuff. You know, the stuff they used to interrogate Von Schill?

I just hope those spacehoppers are designed to be optional pieces. Unless they're somehow given flight I'm really not seeing the point of them. Upper body poses are cool though.

They look amazing, but also with a terrible point of contact for the base. 

Zipp does Ok with his smoke trail contact point. Those who were planning to leave off the lanterns might have an interesting time. The bottom half of Kudra's model is skirted and stands on its base just fine, in case the warders* don't.

 

*I'm having the worst time not typing "wardens". :P

Hmm, I was expecting something close to a Shinto monk, not lantern-riding ninja-mages.

I'm glad to be surprised, these are definitely more wyrd.

Models itself are cool, but I dont like the lanterns. Maybe if they had been dragon-shaped. Now they look as if they had eaten way too much gum.

Not at all what I was expecting.... Interesting though - I can't decide how I feel about them. I think I need to see the actual models to see what it looks like in plastic. Definitely Wyrd :)
