Mantic Games have now added their newest army from Kings of War to the pre-order lists to be released in 2016 during February. See what you think of an array of their different characters and the armies that you can bring to bear against the enemy in Mantica…
Champions Of The Abyss
Starting things off we have a look at three of the new models from their range that will be leading the Abyssal demons forward to destroy the world of Man, Elf and Dwarf. First up we have the Abyssal Champion…
This looks like an underling of the main leader who is proficient in both fighting with that sword of his and when summoning up magical power to blast away his foes. I’m sure he would bow in subservience when faced with the Abyssal Fiend however.
I think of all of the champions that they’ve done this would be my favourite for the Abyssals. I like the stance, the wings, and the two balls of fire ready to turn a foe into ash. The face was rather strange to me at first but it has been growing on me, as if it’s come straight out of a 90′s video game.
Last but not least we have the Efreet which is probably their chief spellcaster. He is wreathed in flames and would be a prime candidate for some interesting object source lighting work. I’d be very interested to try out a bale fire look for the flames and then to change their skin to black or grey.
Armies Of The Abyss
Of course each of these characters needs an army to lead. Here we have the Starter Army for the Abyssals featuring an array of their regular soldiers and some of those monstrous Molochs.
You can see more of the units from within this army over on the Mantic website. I could see Abyssals being a very popular new army since they offer something a bit more different than the standard Orcs, Elves and Goblins.
What do you think?
