The world of Hordes from Privateer Press is to be graced with some more beasts and warriors of the more wild realms. See what you think of the Blight Wasps, Kriel Warriors and Farrow Bone Grinders marching (and flying) to war!
“Moving as a single mass of beating wings, scything claws, and pulsing stingers, swarms of blight wasps sow panic and death across the battlefield as they inject enemies with the poison of dragon blight itself. A single dose of blight wasp toxin is enough to kill a man, but the creatures mindlessly sting over and over again as the hapless victim writhes in agony before finally succumbing to death.”
“Kriel warriors are the heart of the armies of the trollkin. These bands of warrior brothers march to war in defense of their people wielding shields, hand weapons, and an indomitable spirit. They are often accompanied by mighty caber throwers, who put their prowess in the traditional sport of their people to lethal use against all enemies.”
“Well versed in the mystic arts of butchery, farrow bone grinders seek out choice organs and marrow-filled bones from slain warbeasts in order to harness the mystical power lingering within. These parts are combined with blood, bile, and lymph to create powders, unguents, and talismans able to empower farrow warlocks toward victory on the battlefield.”
Weirdly enough the Blight Wasps might look a little bit too cute? I think the wings being that particular colour and so thick is making those things that should be creepy look like they bumble around buzzing instead.
The other two packs are repackaged versions of existing miniatures but the Kriel Warriors are now in plastic which is awesome. The Farrow Bone Grinders are unfortunately still metal but since most of them are one-piece miniatures that’s not so bad.
Will you be picking these up?
