Games Workshop and Total War Gamer have posted some nice pics of all of the Sprues in the Island of Blood 8th edition starter boxed set.There are 4 different sprues,. 5 sprues are included in the boxed set so you can 2 of one type of sprue and 1 each of the others. In summary, points to note:-
- Some sprues are combined and contain Skaven and High Elf models so resellers who only want one of the army miniatures will need to cut what they want from the sprues before selling them on or swapping them.
- The plastic models are largely complete, that is to say most consist of only 2 or 3 parts so they are easy to clip together (so minimal gluing)
- Shields are already attached to both Sea Guard and Skaven Clanrats
- There is a lot of detail on these miniatures so they should "paint up" very well indeed !
Total War Gamer Island of Blood Review :-
BTW, Total Wargamer has also posted a review of the boxed set along with some images of the assembled but unpainted miniatures. It's a nice summary and worth a read.
