Poko Posted March 26, 2014 Report Share Posted March 26, 2014 Or rather the thing called intuitive design. I've finally bough me a plastic box. It's Victorias, as I was keen to get not-Arcanists finally. Don't get me wrong, the models are fantastic. They have a ton of small detail and great proportions. I applaud that. One thing I cannot applaud is how many parts each model comes in. That was perhaps a bit disappointing, but I can understand given the poses on some of the models. However, I do have to comment on one thing. What reasoning led to making the models connect by the wrist? Both Vicky and at least one ronin have weapons glued to the arm by the wrist. Literally the least structurally sound part of the anatomy, and literally the smallest flat surface on the model save for the high heels. That's just...mind-boggling to me. Likewise some other decisions are unfathomable to me- the standing vicky could have any pose. any pose at all. So she's standing with her legs crossed, ensuring the slightest breeze will tip her from the base unless you pin the model down. The other viki has to connect her sword behind her back, lining up left arm with torso, right arm with torso, right arm thing with ground and left arm sword bit with right arm thing. There are more thought-out card houses out there I have a feeling. Overall, I love the style. I love the details. But I sadly will stick to metal models unless I have a proof the "artistic integrity" of the sculpts gave way to ease of construction in the plastic kits. I thought plastic meant easier construction than metal or resin, Wyrd managed to prove 10 years of modelling wrong. Slightly disappointed, but still looking forward to actually playing 2.0. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
