|Up from the depths! Thirty stories high...|
I was drawn into Deep Wars primarily due to the setting. I can’t think of too many things more exciting than fighting scaly fish monsters in the cold depths of ancient oceans. Since assembling my initial starter box of Ancients, however, I have not really been inspired to purchase any of the new models. And this is not due to lack of new models, as they have maintained an impressive release schedule, sculpting and selling most of the models in each range. Unfortunately, I feel most of the models are not as strong as the initial set of miniatures for each faction. Many of them are Bob Olley sculpts, which tend to be mediocre at best. Some of this can be attributed to questionable concept art, which looks to have been followed to the letter in every case (character’s weapons being particularly outlandish and undetailed).
