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.

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 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.
