The long and many years awaited Skitarii have finally arrived. The sculpts are very impressive in my opinion and are extremely close to the original art by John Blanche of his Skitarii (Tech Guard).
They do feel very Grim dark to me, which I am thankful for. Still not too ennamered by the walkers, but they may grow on me.
So now to the Sprues;
Very impressive. The flowing robes are completely independent of the legs. The Helmet variants are arrayed straight on and from the side too. Weapons are Cultist like (these two hands go together and fit snugly).
Now with all the talk about Forge World's expansion of the Skitarii and their variants I think these Sprues could easily accommodate it. I say this as the Magaera and Styrix Knights were some of the first kits that FW had access to the digital sculpts for, so I can imagine a series / pack of alternative arms, weapons and heads to be designed by FW to go with this unit.
I would be interested to see if FW did a variant of this kit, but I doubt it.
What do you think of the new Models?
