Another one of the teases the other day was a Sorak. These are another of the fun aliens that make up the Rebel faction and can best be described as foot soldiers.
Anyway, like the Orc Commander, you may not have seen this lovely little model from more than one angle, so here he is. Note that this is a pre-production resin and is shown at lots larger than real size (which is 29mm to the top of his head) without having been cleaned up first. You should ignore any blemishes as any mould lines on the final version will be in a different place anyway as the production models use a completely different mould and process.
And in case you are confused: yes he is walking on his hands and holding the rifle in his feet. Because he can.
This is another model I’m very pleased with. Originally the concept came up for DreradBall though he hasn’t yet made it into that game. Nice to see him making an appearance here.
The tricky part now is deciding what colour he should be.
LARGER than real size? So he is gonna be WAY smaller than a human then? TINY.
Real model size 🙂
On my screen the model is well over 4 times its actual size.
Ooooooh…ok. Missread. I was gonna say, its slightly larger your thumbnail! Would hate to see it any smaller. LOL. Thanks!
Great pics. I know that these models for the Rebels are going to have the most differentiation among species, which is great because it offeres a lot of room for further expansion down the road. On that note is there/will there be fluff out there about the different species and how they fit into the over all story/faction and so on? This will more than likely greatly impact my painting schemes.
There will indeed be fluff on the background of all the alien races in the rulebook and campaigns.
Great to hear! Looking forward to it 🙂
Pink. With extra pink.
If you wish to abuse your models like that fiendl, you go right ahead 😉
I picked up the 3-packs of both Nipple Pink and Wine Stain Red from Foundry the other day. It’s basically 6 different shades of pink… 😀
All prepared, brush in hand…
Yeah right. I’ve had the day off work to day, in order to recover from Download. I’ve been trying to put down the internet and pick up a paintbrush since about noon, and it’s still not happened…
Not addicted at all…
I’m very pleased with the model quality on Mantic’s latest figures. It’s not everyday that you can invest in a game and see your support turn into furthering the product of the company in such a positive direction.
This is a great sculpt, and frankly the sculptor deserves credit for a job well done. Who did the Sorak?
Steve Saunders. He sculpted all the Rebs apart from the teraton and the drone.
I love the Rebel aliens. They’re so unique and creative.

Takes the term “shooting from the hip” to a whole new level. Nice! Although, how does he brace against the recoil force from the gun? Is there a “must spend a move action on the next turn to perform a somersault” penalty when he blazes away? 🙂
How do you know this gun has recoil?
I’m playing with a number of different effects for the alien weaponry in the Rebs faction as well as the normal “bang, you’re dead” variety.
Yeah, fair cop. As soon as I posted that, I thought, “Oh wait, the future has laser guns and what-not.” Do I still get points for the hip comment?
You do. You are groovy, daddy-o.
Very, very cool. One of my favorite things about the Deadzone aliens is that most of them aren’t just humans with odd foreheads or pointy ears. One question though, how does he draw that knife?
It remainds me of the alien racing vs Anaking in Star Wars the phantom menace…
I’ve done my best to expunge those films from my memory.
