Their new helmet look like too much GI and i don't like this new design. A more warzone helmet like should be better otherwise great minis (with the pouches).

To answer to the community they should be light infantry. But without informations from the new background we have to wait and see.

Conversion kit with classic helmets should solve the problem. Of course few changes in design would be nice too.

I liked the first ones so much more, I am really annoyed that nostalgia goggled whiners destroyed this concept. Those new helmets looks so bad. And the sculpt is not diffuse too.

Where did you see nostalgic whiners having a part in this issue?! Iirc, everybody cheered the new concept during the KS campaign, but Prodos changed it nonetheless for understandable reasons.

I think the feet actually changed to make casting the models easier, without ruining the models.

That sad fact happened quite a lot with the old figures resulting in the "side stance" or riding horse stance, even now we must bow to casting limits.
Cheers Rob and all.

Yep, but we are able to push it a little further. Traditional sculpting requires a particular 'strength' to the model, especially if it is going to be cast in a vulcanising mould. They put lots of pressure on the model and if it is not strong, it will break.

Nowadays, we have much nicer ways of casting and resin has become the norm. Resin is lightweight, allowing us to really push what we do with a model.
