Avatars Of War has released two new miniatures into the mix for their 9th Age and Arena Deathmatch range. We start with a mighty, muscled warrior and the Barbarian Mercenary who comes with a pair of weapons this time around.

Barbarian Mercenary #1 - Avatars Of War

This fellow follows all of the rules when it comes to making a classic barbarian. Big broad chest, an axe at the ready, flowing hair, a mighty loincloth and of course that stern expression that tells you that every answer to a question involves violence. This fellow would be great as a roleplaying hero or at the heart of an army, ready to lead his fellow barbarians into battle.

Barbarian Mercenary #2 - Avatars Of War

If you're into your old school dungeon delving then this fellow would certainly make the cut. There is something of the HeroQuest/Warhammer Quest about him and I reckon it would be hard to turn him down if you're a barbarian enthusiast.

Bellowing Centaurs

As well as that slab of muscle, we've also got the charging form of the Centaur Chieftain who is ready to lead the way too.

Centaur Chieftain #1 - Avatars Of War

Sculpted on the charge, axe high and ready to smash apart the front rank of an enemy unit, this fellow is a true servant of Chaos. This miniature sparked the idea in my mind of running an Evil Warhammer campaign where you take on the role of Cultists, Monsters and Barbarian Norscans from the Chaos Wastes as they seek to undermine The Old World. Imagine how fun that would be!

Centaur Chieftain #2 - Avatars Of War

I'm a great believer in introducing more traditional monster races into the mix during your roleplaying games, be they humble goblins or something as wild as a centaur. It could be a very neat spin on the classic Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play formula to instead have you seeking out corruption and the power of the Dark Gods!

Are you going to be snapping up either of these new miniatures?
