"Yes.
I hope

That would be nice Steve!! I am right in assuming the Nomads are the Haradrim in disguise?

I believe that is a safe assumption.

I wrote I would come back for the mummies. Here you are, my first attempt:

I couldn't remove all the mold lines (but I swear I tried), I have to change my blade for the next ones.
Peter, I am waiting for your own version :mrgreen:

So good so see the venerable egyptian back from teh death as a warrior Mummy..

I also started with some of the new figures: the Corsairs were inmediately forced into recruitment for the Night Watch in my Game of Thrones project.. They fit quite good.. i am still not ready with this faction but this is some kind of spoiler

I looked at some of the mold lines and thought, "that way lies madness". In the end I rationalised it by thinking that the mold flash makes them look even more ragged, so I didn't bother.

Yeah - some of it IS pretty bad. I think I was lucky, apart from some flash on some weapons that could be clipped off with sprue cutters, none of the sprues I got were that bad.

Lucky Steve! Generally I am happy to read, that this is not the standard. The other sprues I got from Dark Alliance, Red Box etc. are ok.

Inconsistancy in the molding process. The reason that sometimes PSR get it a bit wrong with thier Mold Ratings. Sometimes it depends on which set you get.
This lot for example

My set had way less Flash than the set they reviewed

I could restist to start buying the LotR Range from Dark Alliance. I have nearly all figures from GW dealing with this books and films. But the Haradrim are really beautiful.
