If you’re looking to expand upon your Warmachine & Hordes collection then we got another big dump of previews trickling out of Privateer Press. Thanks to Party Foul for collecting together a bunch of these…
Leading the way we have this Hellslinger Phantom which has made a few people rather giddy. The model looks great, a mix of the Steampunk and the Fantastical which Warmahordes does so well. It’s nice seeing just what Privateer Press are doing things to shake things up.
According to chatter on the internet, we also have this new Josef on the way. He is still taking a commanding role, directing the troops but with a much better sculpt. I love the look; this big bearded fellow bellowing out loud.
This is then shown against another awesome bellowing warrior. This one is a little bigger however with the Sea King for the Trollbloods.
We knew this was coming but it doesn’t make it any less fascinating to see it coming to life. This is going to be one hell of a project when you get it down onto the tabletop. Maybe we need to use some of the techniques we used when working on the Golem for Circle Orboros.
The cavalcade of characters continues to pour forth with Venator Dakar for Skorne looking like there’s a little bit of a Dark Eldar vibe going on. I love the Far Eastern inspiration for Skorne and this continues to reinforce how I love the aesthetic of the troops in this faction.
We also got to see another monster for Skorne, Chiron.
While the model looks ok I just don’t feel the same draw as I do when I see what’s coming in terms of the regular foot troops for Skorne. Some fluff also popped up for this beast…
“Chiron is one of the greatest basilisks ever broken to the skorne lash, and his subjugation attests to Beast Master Xekaar’s perfection of the art of physical conditioning through pain. The beast’s physical might is matched only by the power of his destructive gaze. Entire ranks of foes wither to dust as Chiron sweeps his cold eyes across them, and enemy warbeasts tear apart their own flesh in agony at his barest glance.”
Last but not least we have the Morghoul slinking forth too. I like the set but it would have been nice to see the two supporting characters in this pack with some different posing to make them look less like mirrors of themselves.
There’s probably a few we’ve missed from this big dump of information and if we have make sure to drop them in the comments below. Some great times lie ahead!
What do you think of the new crop of releases?
