Forge World has two fantastic new releases, both taken from the pages of their forthcoming Monstrous Arcanum book:

From their website:

Once, when all the world was fog-shrouded and dark, legend has it that the dreaded Fimir once ruled, tearing down the cities of the High Elves and struggling in bloody conflict against the wild and brutish forebears of Sigmar. For centuries they roared the praises of the Dark Gods over blood-splattered altars, then the world changed and their gods left them to suffer a slow and lingering decay.

Cold-hearted, cruel and mightier than any man, the Fimir are said to possess but a single baleful eye atop a pointed snout bristling with jagged fangs. Larger and more ferocious than the sorcerous Draichs, Fimir Warriors boast tails tipped with bony clubs and yellow-grey flesh that is all but immune to pain.

The Fimir Warriors set comprises three detailed resin models, sculpted by Steven Whitehead, with three different poses and heads as well as three different types of weapons. It is available to pre-order now for despatch from 27th January. We also have a set of downloadable experimental rules for these dread creatures, taken from the forthcoming Monstrous Arcanum book.

Not even the insidious rat-men themselves know the origins of the ravenous packs of Wolf Rats that are found almost everywhere that the Skaven themselves infest. Neither wholly rat or wholly wolf, but instead an aberrant and savage amalgamation of the two, Skaven Wolf Rats are kept by the rat-men for a myriad of uses; for guarding their lairs, as hunting beasts, and occasionally even as food. In battle packs of these hellish creatures will be unleashed ahead of Skaven troops, for unlike the cowardly rat-men the Wolf Rats are fearless shock troops, eager to feast upon the flesh of those who face their ferocious assault.

The Skaven Wolf Rats set, designed by Keith Robertson, contains a unit of five highly detailed resin Wolf Rats and is available to order now for despatch in the week commencing 27th January. With three different bodies and five different heads in the set, the Wolf Rats can be assembled in a variety of combinations, and experimental rules for them are available to download now, taken from the forthcoming Monstrous Arcanum Warhammer Forge expansion book.

    The fimir are pretty cool. Interesting that Warhammer Forge is concentrating on nostalgia releases.

      The Fimir do make an appearance in Storm of Magic, so I guess it’s one way of filling in that particular blank.

  • Pff… Dirachs and not Draichs!
