Dark / Light Alliance - Future fantasy sets

Posted by Paul on 14 Oct 2018, 18:53

From the VK site;
So, with "Dark Side " should appear (partly-already in the spring 2019 G.):
-Pirates ( "Lord of the Rings"-umbar);
-Desert peoples ( "Lord of the Rings"-Harad);
-Eastern peoples ( "Lord of the Rings "-easterlingi/Wasaki);
Mummy
Centaurs
Minotaurs
Cyclops.
With "Light Side " They will be countered, sooner or later (the second variant more corresponds to the Spirit "Dark Dream Studio "):
Elves (two sets);
Rohan
Gondor.

YES! So my Zvezda & Caesar Greeks can finally fight some of those mythical creatures!!! :shock: :drool: :thumbup:
Needles to say, but I would appreciate it very much if they could be as close to Ray Harryhausen's design as possible. :love: :love: :love:

Ah, childhood dreams maybe coming true... . :love1: :love1: :love1:

Anyway, thanks for sharing this fabulous news. :yeah:

I’m not into fantasy, only keep myself informed, so not sure if this is new?

Yes bottom three.

MARS have a set of 15 1/32 scale Pirate Zombies which are just upscaled versions of the 1/72.

Elves set 2...missed that.

I missed off my earlier post, the 1/32 mars Zombies might make good giant zombies...

The Corsairs need a ship, any suggestions? Anyone got a Zvezda ship that might work.

it is Always fun to see ones old post, especially when you have completely forgotten about them. Thanks for showing again Paul !

And about these Alliance figures, i really love there complete fantasy range ! although the elves set2 is a little bit dissapointing for me.

Phil, so glad to find you back from death, the same as Mummies :)

These sets will be also purchased, oh poor wallet. Lots of potential for conversions on those corsairs, probably very good gaming options for the mummies...
And abput elves...hmmm..not much improvement from Alliance sincen the set1!

Anyway, If i did White Walkers out from those tall, thin, ugly guys, surely smeting can be carried on with this new batch!

Thanks Paul for posting pics and info!

Boy those Centaurs will be a great help finishing my Thistlewood Warhammer project circa 1983. I thought I was going to have to convert something myself which would have been a disaster. I hope they roll out soon. As far as I can tell the latest batch of figures havent hit the States yet.
