Dunno that infantry looks more suited to necron with the skull head and long thin weapons

The war synthetics one? Yea, I can see that BUT if you were to paint the body red and the gasmask head thing silver, I think it could work!

I did buy 2x Morrigu Fire Support Vehicle:
http://ironwindmetals.com/store/product ... ts_id=4676

For the minorus. While its not bad, I feel its a little small to be a minorus. Length its the sze of a baneblade for IG, and about same height. I might be nitpicky but I feel they would be bigger, though correct me if im wrong.

I did uy 8 collusus robots from ironwind also that were mentioned. They were perfect height and look great. Large shoulder cannon and fits the role

They might be a bit larger than that. Several folks have used them for Minorus though and they do fit the look of an armored gun tractor. My own minorus use a Macharius and Chimera as the base so they aren't much bigger than a baneblade.

Yea I might try to convert and possibly add a chimera to the back or front of it to make it larger

Hey not sure if anyone was paying attention to the pictures coming out of the Horus Heresy weekender but the 30k skitarii are big into lances, shields, and even Corinthian helmets. They look shocking like the AoT Junker infantry in fact (they should C&D GW ;) ) and with the correct paint job would be aceballz I think.

They do fit quite nicely. I thought those were the Secutarii, are they saying they are skitarii now?

The old Steel Crown minis would have been perfect for that too. Did they end up on shapeways?

I only glanced at them so I could very easily misread. I don't believe Tom's released them due to the sale.

Probably the same thing, just misspelled different ways. i.e. the secutarii became known as skitarii over the course of ten thousand years. Scutarii is Latin for someone using a scutum, an oval shield. (Or someone making them.) That sort of works for the 30k guys, and the name stuck after the shields were dropped.

Secutor is a Latin word for a type of gladiator (coincidentally using a shield), but the word comes from "chaser." That works too (chasing archeotech) but the plural is secutores so I'm guessing there's no relation. There's already a secutor unit anyway.

I'm pretty sure there isn't a relation to the Secutor with these new guys since they already released these guys: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-US/Mecha ... n-Secutors

and it wouldn't make sense for these new models to be that.

I've updated the list to reflect some of the minis no longer being available.

In the future it might be best to keep the the OOP unit but remove link and note as such? That way people could keep watch for them in trades/etc.

This will certainly not be news for some, but it would be good to get them on the list anyway: here's a new proxy for the Rapier
http://www.onslaughtmini.com/203-grudd- ... laser.html

and for the Thudd Gun
http://www.onslaughtmini.com/204-grudd-quad-mortar.html

They're also available through Vanguard for this outside the US.

That's a good option for the Rapier.
