Today I've got a packet from BrickTW. All items that are available at the moment in grey, black, red and tile
First, I was a little scared about shields - that new way making grip looked fragile to me on pictures. At my surprise, they fit so well together. Which is important, because the shields were items that I was looking forward the most :)
Second, weapons. They are HUGE :) I armed my Drow army, and then comment with my girlfriend that it is not fair - what elfish or dwarf weapons can mach that? :)
The grip is just write, and I used both new and a minifig from 1982 :) If you played Icewind dale, you will recognize broadswords that the goblin riders had - and it is my favorite weapon from the set.
Armor - it fit in micrometer :) I was afraid that it will be too "tall", so that I would not be able to use those old helmets (with neck protector), but it fits perfectly (I will take few pictures during the week). I like the idea to go "below" the waist - haven't seen this in Lego products
Helmets - maybe the biggest pleasant surprise - if the rules allow, you will see all of this in CCCC this year. Note: if you order plums (ornaments, feathers etc) be careful, they are pretty small, and can be misplaced - I unpacked on white sheet :)
The parts are extremely resilient on stressing - I tried to break one with limited force and it did not brake. That means that I can really play with my soldiers.
I also started combining custom BrickTW items with Lego's, and there came another surprise: ALL helmets fit dwarfs beards! My dwarf army will multiply - and Drow will get new Druegar slaves for CCCC.
This is all for now, because I must continue working, if there are any questions I will be glad to answer. Also, I will order custom made armor and weapons from brickforge next, and inform you
