Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire Undead Warband Revealed

April 13, 2017 by brennon

Games Workshop has expanded on the Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire with news of their new warband, the Deathrattle Sepulchral Guard.

Death Warband

“These Sepulchral Guard are the former warriors of the city of Shadespire. Unlike many of the mindless shambling automata of the Mortal Realms’ undead legions, these once-proud warriors retain shards of their memories from before the cursing of their city, and each is a unique individual in their own right.”

It’s cool that they have these skeletons remembering their former selves and including a bit of character into the collection. I love their leader model and the rest of skeletons are top notch.

These characters will play in a different way to the other warbands, marking out all of the choices in Warhammer Underworlds as quite unique. From their blog…

“…this Deathrattle force favours a player with a considered, strategic approach to battle. They have plenty of tricks up their ragged sleeves to tip a combat in their favour, chief amongst them being the Sepulchral Warden’s ability to inspire and bolster the other undead warriors around him.”

It’s finally good to see some more releases from this collection and indeed for the armies of Death in particular. While their skeletons are cool they are very Old World and this gives a more heroic ‘Age of Sigmar‘ feel to their force in terms of scale and proportions.

The miniatures continue to fit in line with what already exists out there but hopefully, we see a whole new box of the undead coming out to match with this new aesthetic design.

What do you think of the Sepulchral Guard?
