Salute report 3of6 (Gates of Antares, Terminator)

Gates of Antares


During the day I stumbled upon Gates of Antares. I have to confess that I have not followed this game to close in past. All I remembered was a not very popular kickstarter and that the first human miniature was quite nice but the following sculpts not my cup of tea. I lost them on my radar.

For curiosity sake I went to check them out and found a poster that reminded me of Ironman and took some pictures of their painted minis on display...








Since Im quite unfamiliar with the range I was not sure of what I was looking at, but my opinion regarding bland sculpts did change. Again is the same argument that in real life they look so much better, but these minis really did look like something fun to paint, specially the red ones. I could see myself getting some. I think I will follow this a little closer from now on since I only was aware of like 10% of their range. Specially after I looked into something on the other side of the stand... 


Sculptors corners are always a favorite of mine and spent a bit of time chatting with them, learned a few more tricks there! After the chat and before I went into Alessio corner with his Terminator game it took a few pics of some minis on the sculptors display. Not sure but I think they are for Gates of Antares and they look bloody beautiful!







Terminator Genisys



Terminator License game content... there is still a rulebook and some kind of mat.


Painted minis





Into the sprues.






A nice exclusive too.



Ok so my thoughts about Terminator. The miniatures are quite interesting and they are cast in plastic sprues not resin/plastic as many other companies new stuff. Thats a big plus for me. I think that the human faction sculpts are superior in comparison to the Terminators ones, the human proportions are more realistic than the popular heroic style so its quite refreshing. I can see myself getting some human sprues just for the kicks. Looking at that resin Lted Edition you can see how nice the humans are.

Depending on price point I could get this game because it sounds interesting from the little bits I heard from Alessio.

I think this license will give many hours of fun to the fans, nice minis in plastic sprues and a game created by a veteran. Its going to be an interesting year for sure.

Ill be back soon with next update. XD

  1. I've found virtually everything I buy from Warlord, that scales are all over the map, as is the detail.

    2. Sorry to hear that, its not a company I get minis from so I cannot really vouch for their quality. What I can say is that with your talent for sculpting and painting you can spice up their flaws with no problems.
