Here are a couple of pics of some new illyade minis in the flesh ( as opposed to just the concept art). News was taken from creafig.

Thanks for posting these Arthur.
Not sure how I feel about them to tell the truth, they seem very 'average'. The lady seems alright, but just doesn't 'do it' for me and the two guys in armor .. well, there are a tone of those already.
Still, not bad at all.

I disagree! I love the look of the last fellow. Big and unusual. What I dislike about all of them is those horrendous bases. They look so blocky, plus being painted in not-so-appealling colors...

My favorite from the last batch is her:
Nécromante de Morgar 2

I like ALL of these! Maybe now will be the time for me to finally get some Ilyad stuff! :thumb:

ok, I like a lot of illiad stuff, but really haven't fallen in love with it. There are elements in a lot of their minis I really really really like, then there is just something else with lets me down about them. It's hard to explain, just haven't yet had one of their minis grip my by the lips and yell at me to paint it.

I mostly like the aeromancienne except something looks odd about the shape of her head, it looks a little pinched. I do like that Nécromante de Morgar 2, excellent face on her, but not the zombie, I just don't like zombies, (eeewwwww, sticky undead, grooooos!)
The chevaliers d'infortune are alright, but nothing awe-inspiring. I think the second one would do better with a picture taken from a different angle, so you can see the axe better.
Just like any company, some "ooooooh!" ones, some "eh" ones, but at least I haven't seen any "omg, why'd they cast THAT!" ones. :thumb:

I like these miniatures but the top one seems as if her head got put in a vice. People DO look like that of course, and odder, just she looks a bit odd. LoooOooOooVe the necromancer lady, she has a great body on her.
Only things I don't like about this company is that they have these really funky bases that you have to insert them into. I tried to remove one base off a miniature a friend got me and ended up shattering the foot! Not sure if they are doing it to be different or just stuck in their ways, but I really wish they would give you the option of putting them on your own base.

Love the necromancer and the rest are OK, tempted to get some of these but the base thing really irritates me.
