It looks like it’s going to be a busy month for Chaos with Games Workshop releasing a new set of Chaos Knights now known as the Varanguard or Knights Of Ruin. These images from the new White Dwarf dropped this week showing off the three new mounted warriors in all their glory and you can see them HERE.
All of the Knights are actually, in my opinion at least, looking rather awesome. I don’t think that they’re as foreboding and intense looking as the Chaos Knights we had in the past (I kind of liked them entirely encased in Chaos Armour) but they have a good new ‘Age of Sigmar‘ look to them.
They fit in well with the aesthetic that we’ve seen building from the likes of the new Archaon model and I like the twist on the mutated horses to make them look more monstrous. The action poses they’re in are also quite nice too.
As well as the addition of new Chaos Knights to the Age Of Sigmar throng we also got a teaser (yet to be confirmed as real or not) of a Duardin or Red Slayer sprue which apparently popped up inside a Tau box someone opened.
The sprue, seen HERE, shows the standard bearer model for a new Slayer unit with a flaming beard and an icon representing Grimnir in all his fire-wreathed glory as their leader. If it’s real then I might be getting rather excited come next year for Dwarf releases.
