Thank you very much for the close-ups! A lot of flash in my point of view.

Not enough actually, I had to tweak the exposure (and contrast and colour) in an image editor, to lighten each image so that it was possible to to see the detail.

Just received a Dark Alliance order from Hannants. There is a small amount of flash on the Mummies set but the figures are really lovely and very detailed. So too the Corsairs Set 1 - where thankfully the flash is less of an issue.

Shame the Mummies are such a dark chocolate brown. A nice sand colour would have been perfect.

Nevertheless I applaud Dark Alliance for branching out further into the realms of Fantasy. I love historically accurate military figures too - but there is scope for so much more in this scale.

They do appear to be the upcoming Alliance Haradrim. The pic turned up on the VK site today

The nellies are a backdrop using the Zvezda Boxart. ;-)

Given they seem to drop 4 sets at a time, wonder what the 4 might be.

I tried to get a picture up, but l failed miserably...

I'm hoping that the centaurs will be one, but undead eqyptian chariots would be good, or Anubis warriors.

I would like those mummies as real life Egyptians fighting Assyrians or Persians! That would be fine.

Thanks for sharing, Paul.
The russian guys posted more pics with better views.
These haradrim look really good, they will increase my middle earth armies for sure

It seems they try to make a Mumak/Oliphaunt conversion from a "tiny" zvezda elephant...

According to Haron on the Strelets forum these are still a way off in time. "Not soon" being the precise phrase.

Kevin. You Need the img /jpg link which then you add the IMG tags to

At VK It Looks like this;
<img style="width: 600px; height: 322.03px; margin-top: 88.48px;" src="https://sun9-6.userapi.com/c851332/v851332861/1ae742/fK0yHaWxbH4.jpg">
but you remove everything pertaining to the link on the VK board, width, height etc to get this, which, if clicked on takes you to the pic without Hosting at VK
https://sun9-6.userapi.com/c851332/v851 ... aWxbH4.jpg
Add the IMG tags and it becomes visible here ;-)
