Noticed an odd set of French Guard Grenadiers on the ad section of the pages:

I stared at them for quite some time myself…

When they get down to $10 USD in the flea market, I'll buy a box for parts.

I saw their advertisement in the latest issue of WSS. I think the 40K crowd is their primary audience.

I'm waiting for my free sprue of these from the Wargaming survey, looking forward to paint up a test mini. :)

did these not feature in Nu Earth and rogue trooper ?

40k had the Preatorian Guard for a while, not sure if they are still a thing.

These are apparently soldiers snatched from Earth to fight alien battles – they also have a set of non-Fallschrimjaegers that are similar

The 40K Praetorians (my favourite Guard unit, by the way) are not available any more from GW but are available from the good people at Victoria Miniatures

I'm astonished that they have actually invested in a mould to make these in plastic.

Will they really be that popular?

Meanwhile us 15mm'ers wonder when our time will come…
