Gale Force Nine are following along with the Rage of Demons Dungeons & Dragons storyline with two new Collectors Series models. Both the strange Graz’zt and even odder Zuggtmoy are creeping up from the Underdark to sow discord…
This deadly demon sculpted by Giorgio Bassani is luring your adventurers deeper into madness. I think this is a great twist on the D&D adventures of old making things a little bit darker in terms of tone.
“Known as the Prince of Pleasure, Graz’zt is a creature of debauchery and desire who strives to accumulate more power. He delights in ostentatious finery and pageantry, sating his decadent desires with subjects and consorts alike. He particularly relishes the spectacle of a self-indulgent person’s life collapsing into ruin.”
Sculpt-wise the model is pretty great and I think they’ve done a good job on bringing him to life giving him a human quality while also an edge of the creepy too.
Friend of the Myconid and all things that infest the Zuggtmoy is one of the strangest creatures I have ever seen for Dungeons & Dragons. It almost has an Alien quality to it with the strange way the top half of its body is made.
“Zuggtmoy’s only desire is to infect and control living creatures, bending them to her will and using them to spread her spores.
Zuggtmoy’s cultists follow her unwittingly. Most are fungi-infused to some degree, whether through inhaling her mind-controlling spores or being transformed to the point where flesh and fungus become one. Such cultists are walking fungal extensions of Zuggtmoy’s will.”
Once again it’s a great model and although it might be seen as a little delicate to drop into the middle of a fight it also seems like a deserved boss fight creature for your adventurers.
It’s great to see so many odd models popping up from Wizards of the Coast.
Which of the two do you prefer?
