As you can see he is quite the monstrous sight now. As I mentioned during last week when we were looking at the clearer images of him in the leak I do actually quite like the model.
I think the design of it is rather striking and while it might be more suited to being used for dioramas and such considering its cinematic look it would be a fantastic thing to own, in my opinion anyway!
When you take a look at some of the finer details of this model then you begin to see how long it would take you to get it all painted. The amount of extra stuff packed into the mount alone, Dorghar, is insane. I like that you’d get to do some interesting and vibrant tweaks to the heads though.
In talking about the heads I should note that I still don’t like the look of the Nurgle head but the other two are rather nice indeed. Archaon himself is also a rather dominating figure but I note that they have slimmed him down a bit so he looks a little more like an anime villain than he did before.
Rules wise Archaon is notably insane. He has the Slayer of Kings which can auto-kill some heroes as well as armour and shields which deflect Mortal Wounds.
In addition the three heads on Dorghar each have additional effects. You can find out more about them on the free PDF download HERE.
What do you think?
