Salute 2023 Limited Edition Miniature [Update]

The newest update from the South London Warlords is that we're going to be seeing a rather fancy limited edition miniature popping up for those who attend Salute 50.

Salute 50 Limited Edition Miniature - Salute 2023

Salute 50 Limited Edition Miniature // Salute 2023

This miniature is shown toasting fifty years of "looting and tabletop gaming and looks like he's ready to go for another fifty!". The miniature was designed by Warlord Games and will be available in Warlord Resin Plus. That's the new material from Warlord that doesn't need primer to paint which is worth putting to the test yourself.

The miniature here was painted by Kev Dallimore in two styles. You've got one that he is known for (above) and then the second (below) that is painted using Army PAinter Speedpaints.

You'll be able to pick this miniature up from Salute 2023 this year and learn more about it on the day. Make sure to dive into the show guide to learn more about it when you get a chance to read it. I like that they've gone with a mighty Dark Age warrior laden down with weapons and the spoils of war. I think it makes sense considering the number of treasures that people end up taking away from Salute with them.
