Privateer Press announces their new character warpwolf upgrade kit.

From their website:

Once a proud Tharn king, Ghetorix was bested in combat and captured by Kromac for defying Morvahna the Autumnblade. As penance for his defiance, Morvahna forced the warpwolf elixir upon the defeated king, transforming him into one of the fiercest warpwolves the Circle has ever known.

Ghetorix’s thirst for blood and hunger for violence is legendary. His howled battle cry sets his foes’ hair on end, breaking spirits even before his axe and teeth bite into flesh. Ghetorix’s bloodlust is slaked only when he stands knee-deep in the entrails of the fallen, his jaws dripping with gore.

The Ghetorix character warpwolf upgrade kit comes in a blister (PIP 72062). The Ghetorix character warpwolf upgrade kit is NOT a complete model. Players will need a Circle Orboros Feral/Pureblood/Stalker Warpwolf Kit (PIP 72057) in addition to this kit. A player may field one Ghetorix in a Circle Orboros army.

    Sort of a step backwards for PP. Very static and uninteresting for a character warbeast.

  • Wulfen

    Not sort of, it is absolutely a step backwards. That is so uninspired that I’m surprised it made it through any approvals.

  • rogue

    ugly, ugly, ugly… head is a total disaster. Here is the example while the same parts for all models are not always a good idea. I liked box with wolves, but using plastic box to build something like this… meh, I will never build such ugly wolf

  • It’s not ugly, just boring.

  • Spartan

    I thought is was a rat till i read what it was meant to be.

  • Cherno

    Vercingetorix?

    What’s next, Asterix? 😀

  • BDub

    Did anyone else look at the name and see Ghetto Rick. I will never be able to call this model anything but that, unfortunately.

  • Werewolf8

    I kinda dig the alien spacecraft strapped to his head.

  • I like it, and the head gear fits thematically with Kromac and his end of the Circle faction.

    As to the lack of dynamism, there’s plenty there for me. A model that size has to be pragmatically designed to allow for storage and game play. Seeing this makes me all the more interested in the coming plastic warbeast kits.

    • I don’t think PP has ever been much concerned with he pragmatism of storage and game play of their models.

      Charging backwards anyone?

  • It’s also a kit upgrade not a model entirely in it’s own right.
