    Of course the BSG Irmandinho's taking it easy.

    She never leaves the shelf. She's just getting comfortable.

    Kind of hung up on the design of the Tohaa SMG, though I like the body armor and overall feel of that mini a lot.

    Overall though, that's a solid month. Good mix of minis that painters and gamers alike will enjoy.

    Of course, it means Helots are at least 3 months out... Sigh.

    If you chop off the wheels on the back it makes an awesome base for a cyborg McMurrough. ;)

    At first I have to say, that I am a bit dissapointed. No IA unit in july! We still miss TAI, the MOWANG and the HUALANG ... not to speak of missing profiles of Liu, Haidao and Zencha or that we only have one single Shang Ji (I wonder why he is not listed when you use the IA Filter in CB Shop) that is in competition for the oldest mini available with the single Interventor (not to mention some support boxes or ur-remotes).

    At second, I like the Zondnautica best! Damn expensive for two models in three variations, but it look very cool.
    I like the Irma too, nice pose, more in the booklet style, but nice anyway. Maybe for my Star Co in a distant future.
    The Arunja is a bit strange - its hard to figure out where they look. The big holes seems to be the eyeslots of the helmet.
    Their bots are cool though. I think I will get them anyway for my OSS but not a "want it now!". A bit sad, they not use the opportunity to make two different sculpts (male/fem) but just mirrored the pose.
    The Krigel is okay. Tohaa are not so much my thing.
    The Speculu is a mess of a pose. Even when you look from different angles (in CB Shop) it will only get a little bit better (you can see, its actualy leaping). I think it were better to get both arms sideways and not one stretch in front and the other back. The face ... what look great on the artwork is not so great on the mini. The idea is very good, but the result seems to be a bit strange for a mini in that scale. The effect is a bit better when you look from the side.

    That is the worst pose I’ve ever seen on a miniature. I’m not being hyperbolic.
    I have no words to describe what’s even going on here. How was this green lighted?

    Uhm, have you seen the old 'tripping' Minuteman 'Faust and Grey 2x LSG?

    Or the old Croc Man doing the Maori tongue thing?

    Wonky poses aren't unusual for CB.

    I don't even think the Vampire is all that bad!

    Those are very old models. Wonky poses have been unusual for a while.

    Reminds me of that old cartoon with a trooper in pose so incomprehensible you could argue for any facing.

    We all did complain on boring static poses, now we complain about unexpected dynamic poses. :yum:
    Overall, the model looks a bit flimsy though, but I like that they are trying less boring poses again.

    The pose is really bad but her head from that angle is just hilarious. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Thank you CB

    I actually like the mini a lot and I think the arms just need a little reposition.

    Whoever assembled that one fucked up. The left foot is supposed to be on the ground. See the other pictures

    Somewhat unrelated: I do actually have a Kitsune in a similar position to the one in your photo. I pin models to resin bases and her contact foot was too small. So I pinned her raised foot to a resin barrel like she was leaping over it then pinned the barrel to the base.

    I now realized that there were no previews of what extra arenas for Aristeia are going to look like.

    Mmmm.... Sálvora Governmental Complex sounds like the terrain in the Operation Wildfire.
