Got the batch I ordered the other day to include a few of the unicasts other than the Warriors. In addition to the two additional bungles of Warriors I picked up, I also got a unicast Predalien and a Rob Yourstand.

I didn't pick up one of the unicast Queens yet, but I plan to pick up a duo of them for use as Praetorians eventually. At a glance, they look a little thicker built and slightly smaller than the current Queen model (If you ignore that massive half doorway they decided to frame her with.)

The Predalien is nice, but I actually like multi piece model quite a bit better. The unicast looks a little like its taking classes to become a ballerina.

My opinion of the Warriors speaks for itself. I liked the first set I got my hands on enough that I ordered up two more lots of them for a total of 15 unicast warriors. And Im pretty sure I'll be ordering up a couple more lots eventually. I was thinking I'd paint two sets of them black, but neon green inside of the head ridges then use them as spitters, if I do the same thing with a couple set of the multi-part figures I should be able to field a couple of large groups of spitters in my game that way.

The Rob Yourstand is every bit as fun as the image implies. I was pleasantly surprised to find a card for the miniature even if there was no token like the rest of the models in the game has. The only real complaint I have is that he looks VERY small on the 40mm base he comes with. All said and done, he's a nice model and I thought it was for a good cause. Very happy that I was able to add that one to my collection.

I personally thought the new unicasts were hit and miss. I really liked the large pipe on the one miniature. The one with the Warrior crouched over some smaller pipes looked nice, but the other three while decent felt a little uninspired. Regardless, they seem to be of the same quality of the miniatures in the second edition starter box, so overall I'm pretty happy with it. I got one box of the unicast warriors the other day just to see how they look, I'll be adding more of them to my collection.

Its a real shame that anyone would pull such a terrible stunt. That said, commemorating the event in such a manner is kind of awesome. Way to keep it classy Prodos! I've added the Rob Yourstand miniature to my wishlist and hope to add it to my collection soon. Only shame about the mini is the lack of card listed with its item listing. The special card/rules download is nice though.

Looking forward to adding some Unicast miniatures to my election too!

That's a bummer, but still good to know. Guess my APCs get to sit next to my Dropships on the shelf.

Not sure if this is common or not but I made a pretty substantial order recently, and received one of these models with the order (No T-shirt, but was so happy about the model that I'm not worried about it). Nabbed two "All In Alien" sets to get my xenomorph army to a comparable size to my other armies (Point wise) along with a hand full of other items. The model is every bit as impressive as the image implies. The model has become my single favorite model among my Predator army.

Don't have the dropship yet, but I DID order up two of these. They look incredible. Once they arrive, I'd be happy to get some measurements off of them to see if they would fit in the dropships if anyone wanted to get those dimensions? Either way I'll be adding a couple of dropships to my collection eventually.

That said, if they DO fit, then that's pretty awesome both for the optics, and for storage implications.
