NeverRealm Industry are working on a new game called Summoners and, you’ve guessed it, you will be summoning magical creatures onto the tabletop to do battle. The newest set of creatures summoned from the void are these from the Fire Faction…
There are some fascinating creatures in here and they’ve done a great job on bringing fire to life in a variety of ways. I really like the two shown in more detail below, the Fire Basilisk and the Lava Ray – both being controlled by their Summoner.
I can imagine these kind of creatures could either be a massive challenge to paint over normal organic creatures or conversely really easy if you just wanted to get the feel of the faction down. All that cracked skin with fire boiling beneath it looks complicated
Ice, Ice, Baby…
As well as the Fire Faction they have previously shown off the Ice Faction too. Here is the Summoner for said faction as well as two of the larger creatures.
I have always been a lot more into the idea of ice over fire in my role-playing games and Fantasy worlds. In Diablo II and in many other games I’ve always been the one casting ice magic. I really like these creatures seen above with their shard-like limbs floating in the swirling water that forms their main bodies.
Will you be keeping a closer eye on this one?
