I still really never want to go out into the ocean. There's all sorts of things out there that we may never fully know about. And while the chances that there's a race of super-intelligent fish-people with their own civilization are pretty low... we don't really know that they aren't there. They certainly are in Kings of War, and they've got new units available for pre-order now.
From the announcement:
New Kings of War army, Trident Realm of Neritica, now available to pre-order from Mantic Games
The Trident Realm of Neritica, the latest entry in Mantic Games' Kings of War range, is now available to pre-order from the Mantic website. This water-themed army features bizarre halfing/octopus hybrids, giant crustaceans and lots more.
The Trident Realm releases also include the first miniatures from Mantic's new in-house resin production facility. Both the Thuul Troop and Thuul Mythican are being released in high quality, detailed resin.
These ferocious creatures are a bizarre blend of halfling and octopus. Only a fool would underestimate them however, and there are the bodies of many fools now feeding the things that lurk in the depths.
These betentacled and slippery fiends are aggressive and surprisingly powerful given their size. Many Individuals are also able to attune themselves to, and channel, the currents of raw magic that flow both above and below the surface.
The Riverguard are the ever watchful amphibian sentinels for the Trident Realm. Their ability to leap beyond enemy lines and cause panic with their poisonous attacks is much prized by Neritican commanders.
The Captains of the Riverguard are given responsibility for whole river basins or lake systems. It is their duty to relay all news to their Neritican superiors and they are regularly visited by royal envoys of the Trident Realm in order to make their reports.
The deadly pincer-like claws of these huge crustaceans can crush and slice through even the thickest plate armour while their own natural protection makes them a fearsome foe.
Alongside the individual units, pre-orders for the Trident Realm Starter Army and Trident Realm Mega Force are now available, all the releases will start shipping from 24th February.
