Inside the set, you get their leader, Ravos, as well as a host of infantry that will then storm forward into battle. You’ll also get some unique terrain elements as well as plenty of ways for you to upgrade and play around with your force beyond the base set.
The models for this particular set are looking very good indeed. I particularly liked the aforementioned Ravos who I didn’t imagine was going to be as bloated and corpulent as he is, but I think it adds to the threatening nature of him as a character and his desire for power.
The regular infantry as known as Berserkers and each of them looks like a terrifying foe to face. One of the mechanics of this force is that they like to inflict pain in order to gain some benefit from it, be it magical or physical.
Monster-wise the force also calls upon some slavering beasts to do their bidding. You have the Fleshrippers…
…and the titanic looking Spined Thresher which is ready to crush you into a thin paste on the battlefield.
As a force, I could see these creatures being a lot of fun to paint as well, much like Tyranids from Warhammer 40.000. You could have a lot of fun with washes and different styles of shade in order to bring out the armour plates.
Some wet blending might not go amiss either for these creatures to show a more natural look for them.
What do you think?
