Games Workshop Announces Upcoming Releases:

From their announcement:

Blood in the Badlands and New Beastmen Models

Blood in the Badlands is a 96-page full-colour hardback Warhammer Supplement with rules that can be used in any Warhammer game, with massive multi-player scenarios featuring new magic items and spells, rules for underground battles and a complete siege expansion. It’s a must-have book for any Warhammer player so make sure you advance order yours today.

The feral Beastmen receive reinforcements this winter in the form of the massive Ghorgon and Cygor, the brutal Doombull now available in Citadel Finecast and the terrifyingly ugly Jabberslythe. Not only is this great news for Beastmen collectors, but the monsters can also be bound to your Warhammer army Storm of Magic battles. So if you’re someone who gets excited about powerful ranged support, or causing Terror in your foes, or a statline that includes Strength, Toughness, Wounds and Attacks values of 6 (and you don’t mind a few skulls or a bit of slime) then add these monstrosities to your armies now!

    Blood in the Badlands looks full of promise, though I’ll wait for some hands-on reviews before investing. The generally useless fluff of “the tale of eight intrepid hobbyists as they play the campaign, including detailed battle reports, glorious army showcases and turn-by-turn accounts of their expanding empires” really turns me off as a bunch of filler in an attempt to justify the price, but it could also be very useful to provide some references with context. Time will tell. The other WHFB additions could be quite useful.

    The Gorgon/Cygor looks a bit to shamanistic for my personal tastes, but does fit in with the Beastmen look and feel, so that’s okay. I like the models overall, the heads are nice, but there are way too freakin’ many skulls involved. From a purely artistic viewpoint, they are way too gut-pudgy for the muscular arms and legs.

    The Jabberslyth I really like. Terrifying, monstrous, ugly, horrific. The only thing I don’t like about it is the tongue. Not quite sure why, but I simply find it a bit ridiculous.

    Other than the terrific (usage, read large, not great) price, which is completely non-shocking given that we know who we’re dealing with here, the only thing keeping me from budgeting to add these to my Beasts army is that they’re Finecast. I’m simply not touching that stuff.

      You are quite literally the first person I’ve seen who liked the Jabberjabber. Seriously.

      Anyhoo don’t play army games anymore so no opinion on these for use in Warhammer. As minis, not 100% on the cyclops (looks like an upgrade kit instead of a whole new model), think the 3-armed goat is misused and should have been a Greater Daemon, and the Jabberjabber…. ew, no thanks.
