A whole collection of new heroes, units and more are coming your way for Retribution over the course of June from Privateer Press. As a heads up for what’s coming this is quite the extensive expansion for the Retribution Of Scyrah.
Leading the way we have the very imperious looking Lord Ghyrrshyld, The Forgiven who strides into battle with that rather impressive blade of his.
“The warcaster once known as Goreshade was an eldritch, one of a strain of abominations who fed on the spiritual essence of others and consorted with the Nightmare Empire of Cryx. Now, Lord Ghyrrshyld has been restored by the goddess Scyrah and is filled with renewed purpose.
While Ghyrrshyld does not speak of what happened to restore his body, he now fights against those who imperil Scyrah, and many speak of him as being filled with the goddess’ light.”
He is matched by some additional martial focused characters that add to the lithe and agile nature of the Retribution of Scyrah on the tabletop. First, we have Aelyth Vyr, Blade of Nyssor…
…and then Elara, Death’s Shadow here.
It seems like Aelyth takes a more old school approach to combat and I love the facial details on him. He feels like one of the Night Elves from the World of Warcraft which is pretty neat. Elara has a more Sci-Fi feel to her with, decked out as she is in that armour.
When it comes to defending the realm you need folks clad in full armour with big weapons. That’s where both the Fane Knight Guardian…
…and the House Ellowuyr Swordsmen come in alongside their Officer and Standard Bearer.
I reckon that, whilst the colour scheme for the Swordsmen is one in keeping with the background it would be epic to paint them in the same traditional white and blue style. Talking of Sci-Fi armour, the Fane Knight Guardian has that in spades and I’d gladly use him/her away from the world of Warmachine.
Finishing things off for the Retribution forces coming in June we also have Hemera here.
“Designed for Issyria’s exclusive use and fitted with experimental technology that includes a cutting-edge arc node, Hemera magnifies the warcaster’s arcane abilities.
The myrmidon wades into the thick of combat to take Issyria’s place, allowing her to guide the flow of combat more effectively without putting herself in harm’s way.”
Now that is an impressive looking creation and it builds on the style of the previous Warjacks for the forces of Retribution but setting aside some of the awkward design in favour of something more sturdy and dangerous looking.
Overall, if you like Retribution it’s going to be a good month for you in June!
