There are now a ton of Games Day Atlanta 2005 pictures in the GD
report at The Realm of Inisfail (http://www.inisfail.com)! There are
seminar images and pictures of upcoming releases. Forthcoming will be
pictures of the event hall before the event (before it was stormed!),
as well as pictures of tables, and some Golden Demon entries if we can
find the space.

Thank for the pics. The more I see of the new Stealer 'Brood
Lord' - the less I like it. Your shot isn't terribly clear, but the
pose is unimaginative, and the thing looks more related to a Lictor than
to the stealer broods. Oh well, the more I see of that mini, the more
happy I am I've got a pair of the old Patriarchs.

The bare metal is easier to see than the seminar shot. Those seminars
are pain to take pics in.

I keep thinking the Brood Lord looks like an undersized Lictor. But
maybe that's just me.

So. I'm getting close to thinking about going to GDLA again... (due to
this thread) but I don't want to pre-buy my tickets. Can you pay at the
door? If you could in atlanta then I'm willing to gamble that you can in LA.

Yes, but you can, but I think you pay way more.

Nope, only 2 Rat Ogres per box. The Sneak Peeks picture is misleading.
Here's a picture of the Clan Moulder sprue.

http://www.bigjoeduke.com/GamesDay2005Atlanta/DSCN0383.JPG

So what's actually a 'bit of a cheat' is either:

1). The Moulder box only contains 1 sprue.
or
2). The Batallion box only contains half the Moulder box (Which is, I
think, less likely).

Ach, damn it. Try again. I moved the images into a new folder to
clean up the site files and keep them organized (going to be doing a
lot more updates soon), and I managed to change the tags' source
but not the [a href] tags.

Quite possibly. With stats to match, I fear.

The Brood Lord's the thing that looks like a zombie with arms
stretched in supplication and a couple of pitiful scything talons?
It's appalling - I can't even tell what look they were trying to go
for here, but whatever it was they failed. It looks nothing like a
Genestealer past or present, the pose is appalling and it's pretty
feeble for a supposed Patriarch-type unit.

Get yourself a copy of thumbs+, it makes working with images a whole lot
easier.

It looks like a baby Lictor to me.

I think it's supposed to be a zombie werewolf genestealer howling at the
moon.
