In the previous article we took a look at “3rd party” miniatures that could be used as Fimir. Krakon Games has a wide selection of Fomorians that suit the role just fine, whether you want ogre-sized or the more modest Heroquest sized models. Why not both? They’re a varied species and in variation you can really push the potential of the demon-hybrid cyclopeans.

With old Gdub pretty much burying their Fimir range, which were already nichely hidden away in the tombs of Forge World, how do you go about collecting a Fimir army? eBay is rife with overpriced classic models, slowly trading hands for ever-increasing amounts of coin.
Fortunately, several companies produce models that are entirely compatible. With a healthy combination of passion and determination, one such company is Krakon Games. Going beyond creating just Fimir miniatures, KG sat down and did the research.
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.
I’ve been picking up demonic (or I suppose more appropriately Abyssal) creatures for a while, there’s a number of games I play where I’ve ended up with assorted red skinned or flame-y miniatures. I was even inspired to put together a lava themed table to give my various creatures a home and an interesting place to play games over.
My most recent painting fun before starting the Vanguard campaign were a couple of Reaper Bones demons, the rulers of hell.
