The Heretic Leads Shambling Dread Rots For The Grymkin In Hordes

June 28, 2017 by brennon

Keeping an eye on what’s coming for the Grymkin over the next couple of months we also got to see another of the Warlocks pop up on the Privateer Press website with The Heretic.

The Heretic

“The last of the Defiers to spurn Menoth, the Heretic is a self-styled god who rebelled against his creator. Believing all are able to become divine, he fashioned himself into a paragon of his own distorted virtues.

Now the Heretic wishes to dethrone the God of Man and free all of his creation from his laws.”

This was one of the models that we saw during the previews that really stood out. He has a fascinating aesthetic to him which almost reminds me of Sigvald the Magnificent from Warhammer Fantasy. I like the design of the armour and the flowing cloak in particular.

Pumpkin Time

Maybe The Heretic might be the one who brings these Dread Rots into play during your games.

Dread Rots

“Myths and folk legends tell of twisted terrors with pumpkins for heads known as the dread rots. Wielding cruel implements with rusty blades, these creatures single out wicked and exploitative mortals living at the fringes of civilisation for punishment.

Now they serve their masters in battle, emerging from the loamy soil to reap a bloody harvest upon humanity.”

Again these were fascinating miniatures to see in the flesh and as a unit they look like they’re going to be great when arrayed together on the tabletop. You could just imagine them dragging themselves out of the muck to hunt down some unsuspecting farmers.

Which Warlock will you pick?
