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 Wargame Blog
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.
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.
