Well, I can never resist a good topic like that so I put my thinking hat on. How to pick? So many awesome figures.
I gave this some serious thought and managed to narrow it down to 3. That's the best I can do!
First up is...
Favourite Fantasy Figure
|Wood Elf Waywatcher Lord
This guy just oozes badass-ness. I still maintain the Wood Elves have some of the coolest character figures in the game. I've got 500 points of them that have been sitting around waiting for me to give them some paint for years, but I have yet to rise to the challenge. I've always loved the traditional Elf-with-bow archetype, and Fantasy Wood Elves pull this off nicely. Look at that figure. He's just shot you through the eye from 8 miles away, and before you can hit the floor he's going to do the same to all your friends. All because you looked at that tree funnily.
Favourite 40k Figure
This was a tough one! Some close calls here, so honourable mention goes to Boss Snikrot and the Harlequin Death Jester but my pick is going with a newer figure. A really new one!
|Dark Eldar Scourges
These pictures from GW look cool, but honestly don't do them justice. They are such 3 dimensional figures, full of movement and with great presence due to the impressive wings. Plus they're a plastic kit, so you've got pose-ability, options, and a sense of uniqueness to each one. Easy to work with and convert as well. Aside from all that, they just look awesome. They make Swooping Hawks cry themselves to sleep at night because they'll never be this stylish.
