We at Talk Wargaming have been very fortunate in getting our hands on one of the miniatures that will be released with the game and in this article we will be taking a closer look.
The model in question is a member of the Riffs faction. The Riffs are an ancient race, much older than humans, whos civilization has risen, evolved and then fallen due to unchecked ambition.This particular miniature is a Riffs Berserker a fearsome looking creature who prefers to get up close and personal with its opponents.
The miniature came in four parts, the body, legs and each hand. Assembly was easy due to small ball and socket joints which guided and held the pieces in place as the glue dried.
In terms of scale, the Fallen Frontiers are in 35mm which make them taller than both Warhammers 28mm miniatures and Malifaux's 32mm miniatures (see below for comparison).
SummaryOne of the great things about the Fallen Frontiers Kickstarter is that a lot of miniatures have already been created and we can see the final outcome before pledging. Saying that, it's always nice to get a hold of the miniatures to see if they live up to the hype and, after taking a look at the Riffs Berserker, I can safely say that this miniature does. The quality of the sculpt is fantastic and I really like the aesthetics of the Fallen Frontiers miniatures.
My only concern would be the lack of variation available between several of the same unit. As they are single pose there would undoubtedly be duplicates. However, this is a small price to pay considering just how dynamic the poses of the Berserkers are.
If you have yet to pledge your support for Fallen Frontiers you can head over to their Kickstarter Page. As I mentioned earlier, the project has already been funded and is working its way through stretch goals. Some of which include a free hero of your choice at the $60k, $100k and $110k. This can be any hero from the add-ons section, regardless of faction.
