First up we have Gomagg himself who is absolutely huge and comes on a 120mm base to fit his frame. As a comparison he is about a head and shoulders bigger than their demon model and a regular man comes up to around the bottom of his knee. So yeah – pretty huge!
Following on from him we have some lesser warbeasts that are still huge on the tabletop. From top to bottom we have Malmord, Praach and Tykho. I think of the three of them Malmord would have to be my favourite as I do like Trolls. The other two are neat enoughbut I just don’t really like the sculpts, especially in the case of Tykho – but that’s just personal preference.
A Gorgorar unit also makes an appearance to make sure there are enough snake people involved in the proceedings. The Dawn of Khthon are a group of interesting snake women and it could be interesting to see you paint them up with different snake patterns to give them all a bit of individuality on the tabletop.
A pair of riders also stampeded onto the battlefield in the form of Eadric and Crom of Carn Wrach. Eadric is my favourite here simply by virtue of ‘less is more’. I think they’ve got the look of a dark age King just right and with enough small fantasy exaggerations to make him stand out as something different. Crom is cool but just not my cup of tea.
Last but not least are the on foot heroes in the shape of Caedoc and Danilo. Once again I think the less is more approach works better here and Caedoc, while being less animated, looks much better in my books than Danilo. The problem I have with Danilo is that he looks a bit goofy and I think he would have looked better if he had his swords raised in a cross-slashing motion rather than this strange ‘en garde’ look.
Overall quite the haul from Mierce Miniatures!
