Warhammer 40,000 - McFarlane Toys - Wave 4 - Revealed - Featured

I wasn’t going to do it, I’m not the site for reposting stuff that Warhammer Community announces. there are plenty of other sites that do that. So the reason I’ve posted another article on the McFarlane today is that A, I’m covering this whole collection on a master article. and B, with Mcfalanes 4th Wave of Warhammer figures. I have some things I want to say! Not great things!

McFarlane Toys Wave 4

I’m saying Wave 4, but it looks like the Orks are a separate release when looking at McFarlanes Website, so it’s hard to keep track now. We had a leak earlier this year listing all of these models plus one extra, a Ravenguard Veteran. If that has been scrapped, is limited or is a later release. we do not know.

For now, let’s check out the new models.

Ultramarine Reiver

Oh my,

umm!

What is the nicest way to say that this just looks like lazy work?

That Derpy face mask, the plastic look to the upper leg with terrible mould lines. the blue belts on the waist vs the black ones on the legs? What is going off McFarlane!?

Oh and don’t miss how the weapon is being held. go see the other pics on McFarlane’s website, that is how it is being held. is that the only way it can be held? out at an angle? Either someone in the photography department was having an off day, or someone seriously screwed up when doing QA approval on the sculpt.

it doesn’t look too bad in this pose but check out the proportions on the model profile shoots, again on the website. here’s one Reiver who skipped leg day! (trust me, you can’t unsee it)

It’s almost like Mcfarlane found out that JoyToy were also making Reivers and so figured, we’ll if they are doing it with their quality level. we probably shouldn’t even bother trying too hard.

Ultramarine Reiver – Artists Proof

The artists proof is a better model in that we finally have a Mcfarlane scul;pt with a face, and it looks pretty decent to boot.

but again, what is he aiming that grapnel launcher at?

Sgt Pikotaro says “I have a Grapnel, I have a launcher… Ungh…”

What’s with the massive gaps below the knee plates?

I just feel this could have been done a lot better.

Genestealer

And now for our first Tyranid release since 2014. no, Seriously, it was 2014! yeah…..

I really like this. it’s dynamically posed, joints look well hidden and it is incredibly detailed. the paint job looks solid. sure the final version will be of lower quality, but this still looks pretty darn good.

I honestly hope this is a precursor to some new Tyranid releases from GW.

Ymgarl Genestealer – Artists Proof

And now the Ymgarl version, which I prefer as a sculpt. Why is it different to the one above, unlike the original artists proof models that were carbon copies of the printed version? well, to make you buy more. And dammit I will!

Really looking forward to seeing these ones painted up by some of you pro’s out there.

What do you think, let me know in the comments? or let GW and McFarlane Know. I have
