Sourcing the Jabberslythe?

Today Games Workshop fully announced the release of the plastic Winged Nazgûl for their Lord of the Rings range. While a beautiful model in its own environment I cannot help but wonder where this model can see other uses.

The first idea to come to mind is the re-imagined Jabberslythe in the upcoming Warhammer Armies: Beastmen.  What is a Jabberslythe? The name and description confirm the obvious – the classic Jabberwork.

Games Workshop once had a Jabberwork in their monster range, as far back as the 1986-1991 catalogue – a picture can be seen at Stuff of Legends.

Personally, I fully intend to recreate this classic concept and find the Fellbeast to be a perfect base:

  1. I was thinking of using the Fellbeast for mine too. Seems the obvious choice and a great excuse to buy what looks like it’ll be another great plastic kit from GW 🙂 Looking forward to seeing what you make of it 😀
