Hmo is a smaller company and they are doing roboute guilliman so i don't see why p1 didn't also make a primarch.... they started off this license totally wrong.

different scales so they probably could

it's not just that their doing dowIII, they're very light on the detail work as well even on the marine. It's alright and for 40k starved fans woot, but it's not something I'd expect as a premium statue.

Well, this makes my life easier. If this is the basic Marine standard, my money is safe. I will check back in to see if they do a SoB, a female EldarHowling Banshee, or a Calidus Assassin.....but that's it for me.

prime 1 really dropped the ball on this license i'm still going to get the standard space marine because i am satisfied with the detail work and paint job but they could have started off with more important characters.

I was hoping that Prime1 would have bridged the gap between hyper realism and the Games Workshop design aesthetic. I was hoping they wouldn't just up scale a Citadel Miniature.....

It looks like this is exactly what they have done, more or less, and for me this is a massive deal breaker. I really like the WH40K lore and setting, and, for the table top war game, the miniatures are adequate.....but when I pay over a 1K for statue, I need more, much more, then what the GW design offers.

I guess i can see why you think it looks kind of boring. I think we would both prefer if some of the 40k artwork out there would come to life in statue form. just keep in mind the PRICE for that would probably be more than 1k especially if it is made in the scale prime 1 usually works in.

HMO is going to be 1/6 i prefer 1/4 but it is what it is

Looking at the Blood Ravens captain they have just opened pre orders on, I'm not sure if a translation of some of the more "realistic" representations of Space Marine artwork to Statue form would cost much more.

The difference would be purely from a design perspective, the materials and detail would be unaffected.

Anyway, it's not the end of the world for me, at least, and I will see what they do with the SoB......
