Sonia: avatar of vomit. Eh. So the dead justice set is basically just proxies/alternate sculpts for other models when ressers. I guess that makes sense.

The rules for avatars haven't even been released and one of the avatar models being discontinued already? I wonder what's up with that.

I think the original avatar was one of the first models they did and at the time the rulebook was written they made a reference to avatars at the start of the book but obviously didnt have space in the book or the resources to do them in the first wave. So avatars got pushed back to book 3. They obviously decided to do something new to match the other Avatars.

And Sonia's vomiting is probably in response to seeing the new Teddy model. I felt much the same way. :D

The Big one is the avatar, the small one is the alternate version.

Very Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

I like the face, but not very impressed by the musculature, lacks definition.

Same. In all, I'm really underwhelmed with what they've got for GenCon. Wyrd's minis are very hit and miss with me... Hopefully this batch of boring minis means a bunch of awesome sauce later?

Painted Criid Avatar.

So far the Avatar of Marcus is the only figure I dont like. The wings are too small and the face just looks dumb. Criid looks better vomiting fire rather than green stuff.

i rather like criid, and avatar marcus is pretty ace. Yes, the wings are a bit on the puny side, but a quick plastic wing-swap and itd be a well funky model. Quite unique, too.

Put some big GW Dragon Wings on it (like the ones I'm using on my Parasite of Mortrex for example) and it would look better, I agree. Still dont like the face much though.
