Privateer Press have shown off yet another big book for the future of Hordes called Devastation alongside an Extreme Feral Warpwolf for all you folks who just aren’t happy with the regular old angry Warpwolf…
The new book follows on from the story where Madrak Ironhide took up the mythical axe known as Rathrox. As you can imagine this is turning into quite the titanic clash of arms…
- New incarnations of some of HORDES’ most feared and revered legends.
- New and terrifying gargantuans ready to crush the opposition.
- New units, solos, and warbeasts ready to lend their strength to the battle for survival.
- New narrative fiction continuing the savage tale of HORDES: Exigence.
- A painting and modeling guide to help you prepare your forces for battle.
- Theme Force lists for each new warlock.
“Choices often come with unintended consequences, and doubly so for those choices born of desperation. A decision made under duress, in the heat of the moment, can lead to exactly the end it was meant to avoid. Such is the story of Madrak Ironhide and his choice to wield the ancient and terrible axe Rathrok in a desperate bid to save his people.
As the power of the axe stirs and grows with each blood-soaked battle, the Devourer Wurm turns from its eternal battle against Menoth in Urcaen and casts its gaze upon the world of the living.”
As well as the book there is an Extreme model based on the Warpwolf. See what you think of this beast in the middle of an upswing. I want to see a spray of blood coming off those claws from the poor unfortunate who stood in front of it…
I think they’ve gone for something a bit more daring with this model. Instead of going for the more ‘hench’ and buff version of an existing model they’ve emphasised the lithe nature of the Warpwolf and tried to incorporate that into the sculpt.
I thought the model looked rather weird to begin with but as you spend more time looking at it I think it grows on you. A nice model!
What do you think of it?
