    I dig the ronin, ninja and the guardsman - the former complement the DID samurai line well, while the latter fit in nicely with Hot Toys' Pirates. Kudos to Ignite. While I'm not a fan of their base figs or sculpts generally, that issue is easily remedied.
    In an honest service, there are thin victuals, low wages and hard labour.
    In brigandry, plenty and satiety, pleasure and ease, liberty and power...

    These were shown earlier but I appreciate the larger pictures.
    I still like the French Guardsman in black and the Ronin. Would like some ninjas, but they'd have to be touched up to the level of trooper's.

    We have discussed these before , and to use the fashionable terminology , there are Issues .....
    Well , I can't say anything about the Ninjas , but I should save your money on the others , unless they make some improvements.

    The Napoleonics : the Hussar ( for that is what he is ) might be made tolerable with a few tweaks . Where's his horse ?

    The " Imperial Guard " is a joke . Everythings wrong.

    The 17th century figures owe more to Hollywood that History : if those two swordsmen are supposed to be the King's Musketeers and the Cardinal's Men , they might at least get the Tabards right !
    And the Dutch Musketeer appears to be armed with a toy Musket : the real things had 46" barrels ! And where's his bandoleer , flasks, sword and match ?

    And they are all wearing Napoleon's boots rather than period footwear.

    To be fair , these are prototypes , and I have written to them politely pointing out the problems .
    Come on Ignite , you can do better than this ! Such possibilities , and all wasted !

    I agree with Tony, the French and Dutch figs could be amazing with some tweaks, but, it's still pretty likely that I will be picking them up

    I don't know about Ninjas or Musketeers, but I agree with you Tony about the Napoleonic figures. I'm not into this era, but I can say at first sight that these figures look wrong regarding the uniform accuracy and made of bad quality. These are prototypes of course, but I should say that when you want people to buy your stuff, you have to give a good preview of it, even if it's a prototype, or most of potential customers would just don't follow up the whole design process and won't buy the final product.
    Fall out gents!

    Looks like some good base figures to start with. Great looking boots really caught my eye.

    from what I hear the Ninjas are gonna be about $50.00 if thats the case Im gonna get them all and few extras along with the Ronin. Hope thats the price cause its really cheap and I got tons of Kitbashing ideas for the Ninjas.
