Back in the summer I was tempted by a pre-order on Mierce Miniatures for the new Mantichora, from their Darklands range. This huge beast finally arrived last week and I was really keen to review it and a few other bits over the next week or so. I ordered this Mantichora with the rider which I will come back to in future, which is why I ordered the model with a saddle.

My last post was a while ago (almost a year). When we last saw my fledgling warband it consisted of 14 models, and depending on how you looked at it, wasn’t really legal for any ranked style wargame. That said I have been happily using it in skirmish games and with unpainted/proxy models the occasional battle too.
So it time to reveal the complete crew finally! I’ve been working on the Abyss warband since the models arrived but for numerous reasons (not least an over excited puppy) its taken me a lot longer to complete them than I expected.
So I’ve been putting this post on hold for a while, after the first few games I realised the photos aren’t very exiting to view in a blow by blow account, especially with so many of the model being WIP paint jobs! Instead I’ve gathered a bit of a high level overview of all the campaign games I played, some key observations and commentary on the campaign implications of each game.
So this post is a bit naughty in couple of ways
- I’ve been playing (lots of) games and have more of a perspective on the different units than when I started. I’m writing this retrospectively as I think my initial reasoning was sound and what I’ve learnt since is a topic for another post.
