Lizardman Hero from AoW
This isn’t super new news, but it is news to me. I have been digging the AoW work for sometime, and I think they really hit the mark with the lizardman hero here. The quasi-tyrannosaurus rex head is fantastic, and this model really does look like a boss critter! As I said I am into this model. I am not really all that thrilled by the paint job on it. Technically it is very sound, but the color choices, and the saturation with which they are applied is a bit too cartoony for my tastes. I’m sure that some folks love it. Avatars of War produce primarily a series of really nice hero character models for fantasy gaming. They are clearly aimed at the Warhammer market, and good work for them. These models seem like a good way to spice up an army project with some variation.
Chaos Trolls & other WIP
In other news I should be receiving a box of chaos spawn models to make trolls out of!! So next up on the work bench will be 9 (maybe 10) Chaos Trolls, Chaos Warriors with Halberds, and a Chaos Lord. My Chaos Knights, and Chariots need to get painted as well, which I am very excited about.
As I hone my various point lists, I will dive back into the model for the Demon Prince. I have a design in my head which I will share here in the not too distant future. His role in my army comes and goes, especially in lower point value games (2k, 2200) so he is a bit on the back burner for the moment.
