WarGame Exclusive - Greater Good 40K Tau Proxies

For those that don't know, there is an amazing miniature company out there called WarGame Exclusive.  They produce some of the best 40K Tau proxy figures bar none.

The range is called the Greater Good and IMO it is their best range of figures.

I first saw them on Ebay, so I emailed the company and got a few samples sent my way.

The figures arrived today.  The detail and character of the miniatures is stunning.  They are multipart resin figures and each figure includes a very dynamic base.

Scale Wise, I would consider the figures Epic 28mm, which means they are slightly bigger than GW's Tau.  Scratch that some are much bigger like the Strike Veteran Ranger and the Master Sh'o'gun.  Those guys are big and nasty.  Perfect for anyone who needs a hero type in their army.

The sculpts are absolutely beautiful with loads of detail.

We were sent 5 blisters and a total of 6 figures + 10 Pulse Rifles

Each blister contained a multi part Greater Good Figure

Here you can see how really detailed the figure is.  
What I found really refreshing is all the parts had fit together really well.
Each figure comes with their own base, which is also really detailed.

The figure above is the Strike Master Sh'o'gun.  He is perfect for a leader or hero figure.

As you can see the Strike Master is a good head taller than the normal Tau Trooper and still taller than the Stealth Suite.

The WE figures are much more detailed than any of the GW tau trooper figures I have seen.  The person is is sculpting is obviously a master sculptor.  Truly amazing.

Below is 3 of the WE Pulse Rifles along with a GW pulse rifle.  The WE rifles are a big beefier and cooler IMO.

Fantastic looking female Greater Good figures.

Love this figure.  He is the perfect sniper or leader for the Fire Warriors

Another really great looking hero type.  I included a tau shoulder pad for comparison.

Excess resin after putting together all the figures.  Realistically these were so easy to put together and I only had to snip a few parts to remove excess resin.  The figures themselves were wickedly clean casts.

Definitely check out WarGame Exclusive.  They have a ton of really great figures, so even if you're not a Tau fan, you might find something really cool to your liking.

I really like how each figure that showed up were all really unique with slightly different weapons.

I had a few interview questions answered

Do you plan on expanding your Greater Good Line?
We are expanding Greater Good Line all the time.

Do you have any plans on doing heads and arms for the line?
Heads yes, arms maybe in the future.

Do you have any plans on making some more generic grunt troop types for the Greater Good line?
Yes we have plans for a generic grunt troop

I notice you have an asian theme sort of going with some of the Greater Good line.  Do you plan on continuing in that direction?
We added Asian type models just for fun, actually. But as they are quite popular, another one will appear - banner-bearer.

If you're really into Tau, check out this forum called Advanced Tau Tactica.  Lots of great advice on everything Tau.

  1. So are all of the wargames models slightly larger and beefier than GWs respective models?
