BaneLegion from Maelstrom Games has another pair of awesome looking miniatures arriving soon. Check out the newest additions to the range below in all their savage glory…
CHAAGMUTH THE JAW-TAKER, UNTAIN OF THE GABRAX
“The Gabrax, as a whole, are a race that crave power and strength as none other and often seem foolhardy in their hunt for more weapons, for more plunder, for more slaughter in an ever-increasing cycle of ferocity and brutality in Baalor’s name. For them, the means are an end in itself, and yet there are even Gabrax in awe of Chaagmuth the Jaw-Taker’s savage and relentless pursuit of might – and, of course, his legendary barbarity, evidenced by the jaw-trophies and the skull-prizes – and thus are drawn to him as moths are to flame, for even in the shadow of power there is a reflection of it. Thus it is that Chaagmuth’s warband grows further even as his strength grows, and in his warband and indeed in many others his demands are inviolate. Even so, Chaagmuth knows that the future is finite; for did he not take the jaws of his ancestor, his sire, in his quest for power? Such consciousness is perhaps his greatest strength, and his ruthless crushing of any kin-strife – at least for now – ensures that Chaagmuth’s enemies are yet without.”
TUNDAAR, SKULL-BEARER OF BAALOR
The human war-hosts of the Eye in the Ice are comprised, so it is said by those that oppose them, of cruel and depraved murderers, killers and slaughterers of wives and babies with little sympathy nor mercy for their fellow men, but none are as callous or as brutal as Tundaar. His murderous legend – grown through many winters of butchery and malefaction amongst the armies that assault the weakling kingdoms to the south and the east – has become self-fulfilling, a driver in itself to ever-greater heights of cruelty and barbarity in pursuit of the infamy that the title of Skull-Bearer brings, an infamy matched only by the strength that Baalor himself gives him. Few amongst the warriors of Baalor care much for his company but his reputation brings its own reward, for they and the myriad degenerate races of the Eye flock to his standard in uncountable numbers, assured of fame and glory – and perhaps, more importantly, greater strength and riches – by simple association and the chance to revel in the excesses that Tundaar promises: an association that even those warriors reckoned above Tundaar’s primacy crave.
So what do you reckon to this pair? I have included some of their fluff above which should help you make some decisions on them, since after all background trumps all right?
I think of the two, Tundaar is my favourite, simply for the amount of detail they have worked onto him.
Let me know your thoughts?
