Games Workshop Taking Orders For New Gaunt Summoner

How many of you out there have seen Pan’s Labyrinth? Let’s see a show of hands. *raises hand*
Now, how many of you instantly started thinking of that one creature who had its eyes in the middle of its hands? *raises hand*
How many of you, just now, put your hands in front of your face, mimicking that motion? *puts hands in front of face* *cleans off glasses*
Well, it’s not exactly the same, but when I first saw this new Gaunt Summoner from Games Workshop, that’s what I thought of.


Obviously a creature of Chaos, the Gaunt Summoners serve Tzeentch, and as such, get to float around a battle while riding a disc of Tzeentch. Beats having to slog it all on foot. Also obviously, the figure can add a bit of an arcane punch to your Age of Sigmar forces.

Pre-orders are being taken now, with shipping to start on the 19th.

    This was really cool until the flying saucer ruined it.

  • Michael

    He looks like he’s got the summoning under control, but he’s not particularly gaunt. Maybe it’s an old photo.

    • DB

      It’s the armor that makes him look fat. That and his gigantic butt.

  • Mike Schaefer

    Hmm, that’s the first time I think I’ve seen Games Workshop present a model with what appears to be the non-metallic metal (NMM) technique. I wonder if the ‘Eavy Metal painters were beginning to feel a little behind the eight-ball among the painting community.

    • Bad Meat

      Dante, Tycho, and the transition-era Blood Angels Captain were all NMM.

        Cool. Thanks for the heads-up.
