This is the first GW model I have seen in ages that I could be persuaded to purchase, especially with my steampunk fixation still running high. I say “could”, as at £50 (US$80) it is a significant amount of cash.
It should be available with 10% off from an independent reseller, which would make it £45.
Unfortunately I do not remember who made this rather nice treeman. I bought it just because I liked the model and thought it was a nice change from the the usual Games Workshop treeman, and a damn sight bigger.
It now gets used in my Dragon Rampant Treefolk warband.
After several games of Dragon Rampant, I really thought it was time to have a game that actually includes a Dragon.
This is another of those models that has been kicking around in the Loft Full Of Lead for many years. I think my girls persuaded me to buy it when they accompanied me on a trip to a wargames store.
This is a Reaper Dragon that I originally undercoated black and then decided I wanted it in a much lighter final colour. I also noticed on the underside of the base that it is a Bob Olley sculpt.
Just before the weather got really cold and damp, I managed to get it resprayed in white and then did a quick green paint job so it will fit with the rest of the Treefolk warband.
It will get its first outing tonight!
I think I have about six Voracious Warriors in total, maybe more, these are the cheap basic soldiers for the Devourers. The Marauders have taken over as the cheaper option basic warriors, but for an increased unit size in Dragon Rampant, I think they will all mix in together okay.
The Voracious Warriors were some of the first Devourers I painted and so the paint job was not very good.
My Confrontation Devourers have seen some action in Dragon Rampant recently, it is a great game for using all sorts of fantasy figures in an army.
The Huntsman are the heavily armoured artillery units of the Devourers. As these chaps are so large, I tend to field only three or four to a unit.
The Treefolk warband for Dragon Rampant is ready for its first outing today. These Blood Reavers are ready to be horribly outnumbered.
I only have three of these beauties and I will be running them as Elite Riders as the Wild Charge rule would seem appropriate.
