GCT Studios has previewed two new renders for the world of Bushido. Both the Jung Pirates and the Cult of Yurei look like they’re going to be getting some neat new models starting with Yori The Whale Hunter.
“The legend of Yori is known across the Jung, spread mainly by the man himself. When deep in his cups he will tell any that will stop to listen to him, boasts from catching whales of unfathomable size to wild and fantastical sea creatures.
The truth is Yori is no better with the harpoon than anyone else, however he has learnt to be resourceful in battle. He always has sake on hand and uses it to bolster his own and others’ confidence when combat ensues.”
This is one rather evocative model, and a lot more animated than we’ve seen in some of the miniatures previous to this. He looks like he is getting ready to strike some cruel beast which is coming up from the sea to bring him low.
If you think the eerie side of Bushido is more important then take a look at Orphan & Envy, shuddering and scampering forth from a graveyard somewhere.
“There are none left alive that could name the Orphan. Whether it was a trait in the boy before he was corrupted by Yurei, matters little, his envy leads to destruction wherever he roams.
Jealousy of a blind beggar led him to take his own eyes, and now he unleashes Envy to take whatever he feels should be rightfully his. Any skill or attribute an opponent has, the Orphan wants and Envy will take, and use, on his behalf.”
Now those are some spooky individuals. I particularly like the way the creature has been crafted and you could either go down the route of painting it up as a ghost or a fleshy conjuration.
What do you think?
