I'm very proud to present you a new miniature line, from the talented guys of Ronin Miniatures, in Italy : Dark Messiah - Prophecy. Here are first detailss I know, this promise to be interesting for all fantasy/roleplay miniature fans, and also provide great stuff for converting 40k minis ;)
It consists of a range of 22 figures in 35mm scale, each figure have a double head options (one head with helm and the other nude). Each figure is linked to one of the 22 Tarot's Major Arcanum; in fact each character is part of the final prophecy. So isn't a game but just a range of collectors models, naturaly these figures are 100% suitable for all the gaming systems.
The official website (in English) will host an online comics strip, this comics will be updated at every new issue, also Tarot cards illustrations and scenic showcase bases for the models.
