Odd that these didn't get posted. Thanks to Big Jim for hosting them on his blog.

Fantastic stuff. Those Banshees look damn sexy in blue and red.

Maybe it´s (again) just me, but some parts of some miniatures just look like someone was in a rush to complete them and worked quiet sloppy.

The Banshees look a bit awkward. The guns just are a bit to clunky and have no barrel and the leg armor seems like a bit more work on them would have been great. Some miniatures just have this "90s flair"and look outdated.

The infantry in the first pic looks better - although I have a problem with their "helmet". Is it a leather helmet or why is it attached that flat against their head? They have the same guns as the Banshees - only they look a bit better here (perhaps because the models are a tad smaller)

??? no barrels??? I can clearly see the barrels of the guns. they don't stick out far but they are there.

as for the other two issues I think the legs are fine other than the monochromatic paint job on the lower legs makes them look odd, and the helmets I don't see what you are talking about.

Dunnagh I disagree with the comment on the gun it's the same weapon and in the pictures it looks like the same weapon.

As for the legs I'll concede a little, I'm not a fan of the paint job on the banshees specifically the sharp contrast of blue paints and orange/red armor. when I get my Banshees I'll leave the blue out. the rest of the model looks good though sculpt wise and with a more subdued paint scheme should shine.

the helmets on the troopers look fine in my opinion

The M50 is standard issue for most Capitol troops and support, that's why they have the same weapons. It's part of the Fluff.

I for one love the minis. Can't wait to get my hands on them.

Then it´s obviously just me. No problem then in regards to Capitol units.

Great paint job overall! As far as the barrel, some weapon manufacturing companies have explored then idea of an internal barrel, much like a pistol.

The legs do look a liiiiiitle off, but I am hardly picky. I have had to deal with far worse. Overall quality is far superior to most models. Good work.
