So the final shipment of Deadzone Kickstarter stuff arrived, bringing in one of the kits I was most interested in, that being the Plastic Enforcers. The initial run of Plastic/Resin combo miniatures had already arrived and they are ok, but that material isn’t the best to work with. This kit comes with two sprues that create 5 figures.
Each sprue has a set of legs and a torso that have been lettered so you can easily identify the core parts that go together. Unfortunately, there aren’t instructions / fully number and identified parts. For some, this isn’t an issue, for others it might be, you can take that for what it’s worth. Personally, I like seeing that sort of thing with kits, and part of me doesn’t care cause I can make whatever I want!
The quality of the plastic is great and the sculpts for these figures are pretty nice. You have the ability to create multiples of the Assault Enforcers or regular Enforcers but not the special weapons. These guys are fairly tall, for example the Assault Enforcer is 36MM from the bottom of his foot to his eyes.
The scale seems a bit big for the scale of the game, but at the same time, if they are large mechanized dudes, then it’s a decent fit. Each of the figures went together well ad the joints for the limbs are a shallow round bubble structure with a matching dent on each limb. This allows you to position/pose each model to some extent.
These sprues do have a single limitation that bummed me out, you can only create 1 special weapon per set of 2 sprues. It’s a shame that there isn’t two of the left arm bits that go with the special weapons sprues, it would have made each set that much more versatile.
I really dig these guys, the figures are nice, the details are pretty good and the kits truly are much better than the plastic/resin kits that Mantic makes. I’m glad that they are still pursuing proper plastic sprues and the quality has been improving with each one they make. These guys will go well with the the other enforcers that are in plastic/resin and the kit sells for $19.99USD as of the time I’m writing this. As I mentioned, I got these as part of the Deadzone Kickstarter, this was a late shipment from them, but it still arrived, so no complaints there. If Mantic ever decides to work on it’s Warpath game, this army is sure to look pretty swell.
