New Necromancers Battle Dwarf Warsmiths In Kings Of War

August 7, 2015 by brennon

Mantic Games have shown off some more of the new models coming to Kings of War soon. The Undead get a Necromancer and Soul Reavers while the Dwarfs tinker around with the Warsmith

The Undead Rise

These models come with some variety including additional arms and a head swap. I think that I would have to go with the skeletal head although the other would make for a good model in Frostgrave.

I always like seeing open books and such with miniatures as they give you an oppertunity to get a bit funky with the script inside. I’ve not yet mastered how to make it look right but I will do one day!

As well as the dastardly Necromancer there are some heavily armoured warriors coming your way in the form of the Soul Reaver Infantry and Cavalry

I’m not a great fan of the mounted version of these warriors but I do like the on foot versions. The big chunky armour is neat and it’s good to see them with weapons other than swords. You certainly wouldn’t normally think of using axes with vampires.

Dwarf Tinkering

The Dwarfs are going to start doing a bit of tinkering with black powder and big war engines. Once again you have a head swap and additional weapon choices…

Dwarf Warsmith #2

With this set up I think I would go with the helmet choice and then while using the spyglass in the one hand replace the pistol with the hammer so he is a bit more focused on close combat. I also like to think he does a bit of tinkering with that hammer.

What do you think folks?
