    I'm not a fan of this kind of model with tiny parts like the old spirit host. So not very seduced by the reaper, glaive-wraith, executioner and cie. But the chainrasp and the new black coach got my interest in particular. Even if i thought i was done with gw undead mini. For my next year order maybe xD

    They are really beautiful models, but also frail ones.

    Which happens quite often, but I can't really blame GW. Well designed and executed details, especially long ones, always will be fragile, and I find it better than those old and awful thick ones found on old GW models and many modern ones from other companies like Warlord Games. Those are much more like thick and big tree branches than anything else. You find it also on many historical models like from Tamiya and other giants and that was long before GW and other companies.

    I'm not very impressed by the models featured in the faction focus. They are too fragile and would be very awkward to assemble, let alone transport in an army case, without breaking something. I've never liked the new Spirit Host models and I certainly dislike the daft blindfolds that are covering the eyes of the Grimghast Reapers.

    The rules are a more more appetising prospect though. I can see a Nighthaunt army being a rather scary and durable prospect. I really like the concept a lot.

    I really like the new models, though i will be making some adjustments to make some of the flimsier models a bit more durable, mostly in the form of scenic bases to add extra contact points.

    The new mounted knight of shrouds in particular looks amazing, imo. Among the best undead models GW has ever put out. And I really like the basic chainrasp guys, especially the unit leader (?) With the candelabra.
