Final Sculpts For Afterlife’s Commandos & Pulse Mechs Arrive!

Anvil Industry have shown off the final sculpts for both the Republic Pulse Mechs and Commandos that will be rocking out in the world of Afterlife and beating those Unity Council soldiers into the dust!

Pulse Mechs Online

First up we have the Pulse Mechs who are looking a lot more animated that I imagined they would be from the renders that we’d seen. See what you think…

Above you can see the Veteran landing atop that huge part of terrain alongside some of the other versions of the Pulse Mech with a variety of different weapon options. While there are some cool sculpts here I actually really like the simple ‘standing still and firing’ pose on the far right of the last image.

I’ve finally got round to finishing off my Republic soldiers (it’s only taken a year!) so hopefully I can pick some of these up and give them the same treatment. The models were great to paint with a wash allowing you to pick up so many different levels of detail.

Commandos Go!

As well as the Pulse Mechs above there are some more specialised soldiers for the Republic in the form of the Commandos. Check out these highly trained soldiers ready to do some fighting behind enemy lines…

These soldiers have different weapon options compared to the existing troopers and are posed to be more animated. It certainly makes sense since these troops would be running around controlling objectives while the other troops are laying down some covering fire.

The leader-type Commando with the Grenade is my favourite of the bunch and I’m so very glad that these models have tabs under their feet for making these a doddle to put together. I can’t stand trying to stick running troops to their bases!

What do you think?
