Privateer Press has been slowly rolling out their plastic kits since they first started them with the Exemplar Cinerators, followed shortly by plastic versions of the basic warjacks for each Warmachine faction (and plastic starter box sets).
Many of us were wondering if the plastic trend was going to reach Hordes very soon, but it looked like they had other plans. Mostly, when we saw the Ravagore and Scythean many people thought it looked like they were making an Everblight plastic kit, but then the minis were released in metal.
Well, it looks like that's changing now. In February, the Everblight plastic warbeast kit will be released:
Now, I'd like to point out that I honestly can't tell the difference between these photos and ones from the more expensive metal kits. To the point where I'm not sure if I have the right photos here.
But the other factions will require a little more sculpting to create a three-in-one plastic warbeast.
Now, we have photos of the new Circle kit:
These are all clearly new sculpts, and are pretty easy to distinguish from their metal counterparts. That's not necessarily a bad thing (although those feral and pureblood metal kits are some of my favorites).
But that does mean that they are pushing forward the plastic kits. Honestly, the Circle minis would have been harder to homogenize than any of the others- Skorne Titan kits and Trollblood Dire Troll kits are certainly on the way too.
