A new array of champions have hit the webstore from Games Workshop for your Chaos armies. If you’re looking for multiple ways in which to say you’re killing someone then these chaps will do the trick. See what you think of these latest Age of Sigmar releases…
Leading the way and potentially looking the most average of the three we have the Aspiring Deathbringer with Goreaxe and Skullhammer. He is well armed but I think that the look of the miniature is very much in keeping with the old aesthetic and style we’ve seen from Khorne before.
Going as far as to paint the skull he wears on his head white goes back to those old metal champions we saw a few years ago. I think the model is certainly dynamic but doesn’t do anything particularly new.
This chap, the Exalted Deathbringer with Impaling Spear, however does do something neat. I like seeing more of the Marauder aspect of the Chaos army being worked into the miniatures we’re seeing. He might be possibly the most over-muscular character ever but I think he looks rather cool.
It’s a shape that the muscles are so overblown as I think he would have made a great champion with the big flowing beard and wild hair. More Marauders and tribesmen would be a welcome change from the armour clad warriors.
I quite like what they’ve done here with this model and the wound up flail is a neat addition to the model. It makes him look a bit more brooding and terrifying as he gazes at you and works out in which way he’s going to kill you.
It would be nice to see if we could build on the idea of running a Valkia The Bloody style army however and adding some berserker women into the mix. She is an awesome character and I think some wild shieldmaidens of Khorne would be awesome.
What do you think of their offerings?
