Just got two packs of Exodus Wars Infantry from Shapeways. Took advantage of the Cyber Monday 10% off & Free Shipping. I bought the Marconian Combat Engineers and Command packs. I Chose FUD for casting material. They look just like in the pics on Shapeways. You can see them here link as well as other Exodus Wars models … I'm satisfied at the quality, even if the cost was a bit high … But I bought myself a Christmas present ! evil grin

Are these the old metal exodus war range models and are all the exodus wars stuff going to Shapeways?

These are EW models that never made it into production. The metal EW models being carried by HLS are a different situation … AFAIK they are not going to Shapeways.

And I have not checked lately but IIRC many of the EW models on HLS were to be resupplied(?).

Looks like there are still some EW models on HLS that need to be restocked … link

I note these are scaled at 1/285 so fit in nicely with the larger 6mm sci-fi m fi miniatures ranges. I have number of the HLS vehicles that go nicely with my "Vanguard" Imperial troops.

I like the look of the heavy Self propelled artillery, so may well be tempted.

Something I posted on FB and Tac Cmd. May be of some interest to gamers/modelers on TMP. Here's my main complaint with some model makes … Thin ankles and arms sticking too far out are not modelling or gamer friendly. I love the various poses … but e.g. if you look at some figures they are an accident waiting to happen. They might be better in metal than resin, but I have figures with their arm sticking out, etc. And those are hard to keep from breaking, even when painting in some cases. So one has to be very careful. Regardless a note to all model makers, I love detail … but I don't like fragile. And some poses or weapons, etc. are just not strong enough to use with out concern. E.g. I've got some 6mm figs with potato masher/stikk bomm type weapons. I probably wouldn't use them to game with … those would not last long on the gaming table, IMO … frown 'nuff said !
