Khurasan made a very exciting, well, at least to me, announcement yesterday about a new set of figures that they are producing. Check it out here:
The figures are pretty sexy and look spot on for Colonial Marines. One even has a motion tracker:
The nine figures match-up quite nicely with a standard CM rifle section with 2 MGs, 1 Flamethrower, 1 NCO, and 5 riflemen. A very nice mix of miniatures and they look well sculpted. But that's no real surprise as this is Khurasan! I plan to order at least 4 sets so that I can make a decent sized company of them.
How do I plan to use them? I'm wondering that right now. If they are really great sculpts then I'll probably paint them up as USCMs (and try harder to get the "correct" USCM camo pattern) and use my current collection as US Army personnel. A win-win scenario for me!
In addition, Khurasan announced that an APC was in the works for these miniatures and that he would consider releasing more miniatures for this "line" if sales were good. Here's some conceptual art for the APC:
It's a pretty sweet ride! It, to me, has the same vibe of the M577 APC but has a more realistic look to it. It doesn't look like the vis-mod airplane tractor that the original was. Don't get me wrong, it was a cool vehicle but after I heard about what it was I just couldn't drop the image!!
So here's your chance to grab that USCM collection that you've always wanted. Go hit Khurasan and order a few squads:
I can't wait to see how they stack up with my other sci-fi troopers!
