Well, I just had to try out the new skitarii models from GW. Sadly they do not really keep to the aesthetics of FW mechanicum, which is to bad as the FW ones really look nice and unique. I suppose GW had to fall for the pressure and make the models we expected, i.e. the robed Rangers and Vanguard. This in itself is not to bad, but the weapons look so out of place I am not really sure what to say. I also expected them to be more machines than humans, but that would have put them to close to necrons I guess. Also the 3D sculpts reduces the re-paintability of the models, as every box will look more or less the same and there is no real way of altering the pose of the models. But it is better than the chaos cultists as there are at least 10 models and some weapons interchangeability. That being said, the level of detail is very high, almost to high for rank soldiers as they take quite some time to paint but I like them. I will see if I am going to get one of each kit and paint them up just to try them out.
