Games Workshop went against the grain this week by showing off proper preview photos of the heroes that you’ll be getting in Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower which is going to be available in around two weeks. See what you think of them below starting with the Knight Questor…
Here we have the new icon of ‘Warhammer’ stepping forth to leads these folks through the Silver Tower to step a horrifying army of daemons. His allies though are looking just as good and I think a lot of people like the Darkoath Chieftain.
It’s a shame that a barbarian like this is in such a neutral pose. It would have been good to see him swinging that sword around or flinging that axe about. I think its a lost opportunity to have him looking more dynamic.
The Exclesior Warpriest is joining the fight alongside his Gryph Hound. It’s nice that we’re now seeing some more of the humans that inhabit their new take on the Warhammer world.
I can imagine this fellow having a bit of a support role in the game and aiding his friends in combat.
Next up we’re going short and angry with the Fyreslayer Doomseeker. Armed with a rather cruel looking hooked blade and that runic axe he will be getting stuck into the fighting against some of your bigger foes.
As well as that we have some Aelfs with the Mistweaver Saih who is going to be your spellcaster in the game. It looks like the influence of the Dark Elves has spread throughout this new faction in Age of Sigmar. A nice dynamic looking wizard.
Last but not least we have the glass cannon from the group with the Tenebrael Shard.
Once again we’re seeing the influence of the Dark Elves throughout the model and it’s interesting to see who the Knight Questor is choosing to hang out with. The same goes for the Excelsior Warpriest!
All of these heroes are going to be usable within your regular games of Age of Sigmar too so this falls into that nice ‘collectors urge’ that we’ve talked about in the past where you could potentially see rules going back and forth between Warhammer Quest allowing you to use your collection in both games.
What do you think of the heroes?
