Title: Crusader CRD-8L, Swordsman SWD-1 not on website?
Post by: kinwolf on 12 April 2019, 18:59:55
The Crusader CRD-8L(20-5172), Swordsman SWD-1(20-5170) and Ryoken III-XP(20-5170)  arrived in stock at a local online store, but they only have the drawing representation up, so I went to IWM website to see the real image of the mini but none of those minis are listed there.  Will they be added soon?

They're always released to brick and mortar stores a month or two before going online.  It gives store owners an incentive to stock the minis in the first place.  In turn, the visibility of the product line is increased.

Ok, thanks.  I'll wait to see their pic before ordering any first since they are not from the era I want to stay in for the moment but I wanted to see if they could substitute for other easily(or if they look plain cool :P)

Thanks for the 8L image!  The arms looks less beefy than the drawing, bit the details are nice.

I just wish the leg/waist of the Crusader was more developed in mind for hip or upper leg missile launchers.

That is how that variants art looked. A bit different then the original reseen.

It does match the 3085 art quite nicely. Which is good because that guy’s sick

Crusaders have always been described as barrel chested, and stout in the fiction and fluff.  Project Phoenix did a great disservice to a number of the units I feel.

That is a very polite way of saying it.
