Games Workshop's Soul Wars might be coming to an end in Warhammer Age Of Sigmar but that doesn't mean that the Shyish Nadir hasn't finished giving out its dark gifts. The Soulblight Gravelords are more powerful than ever and new aristocracies of the night are looking to stake (hah) their claim on The Mortal Realms.

There are some absolutely monstrous-looking vampires coming to the tabletop to lead the forces of Death into battle. If you're a fan of the old Vampire Counts from Warhammer Fantasy Battles then I could see you very much enjoying this faction. Not only does it have flavours of The Old World but Games Workshop have given things their typical Mortal Realms twist.

Lauka Vai - Warhammer Age Of Sigmar

One such reveal was for the body horror themed new lords and ladies that will be taking to the tabletop. Lauka Vai here is a member of the Avengorii dynasty and she crawls and twists her way into battle at the head of an army of twisted beasts and monsters.

Their vampiric line is one where their bodies have been warped and changed by their feral hunger and they are now part drake and part humanoid. Despite their bestial appearance, the Avengorii still retain much of their knightly heritage and see themselves as darkly noble warrior kings and queens. You get the same sense of that in the Vengorian Lord.

As you might have guessed, the kit that made Lauka Vai can also be used to make this Vengorian Lord. So, you can either go with a special character or a regular lord to lead your armies on the tabletop. Despite some initial misgivings about the style of these new vampires, I think they look pretty darn awesome!

Legacy Of The Wolf

As well as those new lords and ladies, we also got a look at how Radukar has fared since being banished from The Cursed City. Radukar is back and more angry than ever as Radukar The Beast.

As you can see, he has been somewhat consumed by his furious rage and thirst for blood and now stands at the head of armies of ravenous vampires that stalk the night. I really like the addition of werewolf qualities to this particular miniature and it works as a nice alternative option if you're not fussed by the aristocratic theme.

Sticking with the theme of wolves, we also have Belladama Volga here. She might look like an old lady but she is very capable of slicing foes in two.

Much like Radukar, there is a more bestial theme to her sculpt and she can command the might of wolves and other creatures on the tabletop. I really like that we're getting a little bit of Kislev slipping through into The Mortal Realms with these miniatures. You could imagine them wandering the frozen north of The Old World.

We also finally got an update for the Direwolves that you'll be able to add into your Soulblight Gravelords army.

Direwolves have been a staple of many a vampiric army throughout the years and it seems apt that they would get a proper Mortal Realms update after many years of service. I much prefer this look rather than the fleshy sacks of muscle we've currently got.

There are plenty of additional releases coming soon too as we've seen in earlier previews. You're going to have new Deadwalker Zombies, Deathrattle Skeletons and you'll no doubt have seen the big bats at the rear of this image!
