More Domination Previews for Legion , Circle + Skorne Plus New Khador Kayazy Eliminators
LOTS of very nice new previews from Privateer Press to finish off the week.
Take a look below
(Click model name to see the official PP page with 360 view and the pictures to see larger versions)
Proteus - Legion Character Warbeast
The dragonspawn Proteus is Absylonia’s greatest creation. With a mass of thrashing tentacles projecting from its horrible visage, Proteus is the dragon’s hunger given obscene form. This unnatural abomination snares its victims with its tentacles and drags them inexorably into the grasp of its waiting claws. Those ensnared die horribly as Proteus strips flesh from bone, filling the air with a bloody mist.
The Proteus character heavy dragonspawn upgrade kit comes in a blister (PIP 73062). The Proteus character heavy dragonspawn upgrade kit is NOT a complete model. Players will need a Legion of Everblight Carnivean/Ravagore/Scythean Heavy Dragonspawn kit (PIP 73057) in addition to this kit. A player may field one Proteus in a Legion of Everblight army.
A very nice model. And very gribbly. Fits in with the new Battle Engine quite well. And yes, you did read the last part correctly. A Legion Heavy Warbeast Plastic KIT!
What does it look like? Lets take a peak
Legion of Everblight Plastic Warbeast Kit -Scythean - Ravagore - Carnivean
The warlocks that serve the dragon Everblight can call upon a myriad of dragonspawn, each a perfect engine of draconic destruction. The carnivean, an ancient and favored dragonspawn, shreds flesh, bone, and steel with its mighty claws and a shark-like maw. The ravagore emulates it progenitor’s fearsome breath by engulfing foes in gouts of blighted fire. Terrifying in its brutal simplicity, the sickle-armed scythean is another ancient breed created to single-mindedly destroy any who oppose its master’s will.
This box set contains three color stat cards and one multi-part heavy warbeast plastic model (PIP 73057). Included are all the components to assemble one of three heavy warbeast variants: Carnivean, Ravagore, or Scythean. A player may field any number of these heavy warbeasts in a Legion of Everblight army.
I don't know about anyone else but I can hardly see ANY difference in this kit from its metal versions.
To me that's a great thing. I love original models.And having them in plastic is going to give a lot more pose and conversion options. Very impressed PP. Might have to grab a couple more Legion Beasts when this is out. (And I don't even play Legion!)
Skorne Heavy Warbeast - Archidon
Archidons rule the skies over the Stormlands of the Bloodstone Desert with preternatural viciousness. Hunters possessed of keen eyesight and tremendous speed, the enormous winged reptiles are known to trail small groups of nomads traveling across the wastes. Once an archidon has its quarry, it soars upward to drop its hapless victim upon the jagged stones far below before descending to feast upon the broken body. Skorne tyrants and beast handlers appreciate the survival instincts and fighting
prowess of these savage beasts.
Look at that wingspan! That's one HUGE Warbeast. As readers may know already I'm not a fan of Skorne so don't really know that much about them. But going by the miniature alone, I really like it. And look forward to facing it in battle and seeing what some of the amazing modellers and painters out there do with such a dynamic piece.
Circle Orboros - Gallows Grove
An ancient manifestation of the Devourer Wurm’s conscious will, the gallows grove flourishes on soil soaked in the blood of sacrifice and violent massacres. Possessing an unsettling approximation of sentience, these gnarled trees might vanish only to reappear where the blood flows most freely. Powerful druids of the Circle are able to feed their will into these conduits of power and then unleash it upon those marked for death. The very presence of these trees saps vitality from the living as wounds gape wide to pour blood upon the thirsty roots of their destroyers.
That's not just a view of the front and back of the model. You get 2 of them! Straight away that good value for money on my eyes. The trees fit in very well with Wurmwood and any of the other Stone/Wood Cirle models.
Another great mini! PP are on a roll!
Khador Allies - Kayazy Eliminators
The kayazy eliminators are assassins who practice their deadly trade with the finesse of the finest artists. Working in pairs, the lithe eliminators move with deft agility to conceal their silent presence. When the time comes to perform their bloody services, they do so with a grace that would seem like ease were anyone present to observe it.
Once again, a beautiful couple of minis. And looking back over the rules from Warmachine: Wrath there are going to be some very happy Khador players out there. But some even happier Mercenary Four Star players!
I didn't really like the older Kayazy but these are so nice they have been added to the 'to get' list already!
So there we are for now.
Only 4 days left until we all get out hands on Hordes: Domination. Cant wait!
