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.
Live right now is Creatures of the Night: Wrath of Cichol, the first fantasy Kickstarter from Krakon Games. Why the long name? Creatures of the Night is the “game world” in which all of Krakon Game’s fantasy models live (well, repeatedly die) and Wrath of Cichol is the first chapter of projects under that brand.
This first chapter both the Fomorian adversaries and one of the first invaders – Partholón. As such, it features 4 models associated with each clan and seeks to unlock further models for this fledgling range.
I took advantage of a recent sale over at Black Tree Design and bought a selection of Dwarves, Undead and feudal humans. There was a small delay in the order due to the humans being out of stock, but after speaking to them on Facebook, they were happy to switch the product and get the order out to me. They even chucked in an extra blister for the delay!
Over at the Oldhammer in the New World Facebook group, the colonials presented a challenge to paint up 200 points of a new army each calendar month. The points must adhere to 3rd or 4th edition Warhammer. I no longer play either, but I do collect Undead and like an excuse to paint them – so I am going to join in. As the ruleset doesn’t matter to me, I’m going to blog the progress with information for both rulesets for pleasure and thematics – and since I actually use my undead for Kings of War, for that too!
Shapeways kindly reached out and offered me some products to review as I run a fairly large Facebook group for converting 40k models. We’ll be looking at running some form of competition later on.
I asked for a bit of a random selection, thinking some of the moderators could join in the review, but so far only I’ve found time to try the bits out. Said bits include shoulder pads for infantry and for walkers, plus a turret.
