Privateer Press Previews January Releases For Hordes
Being about halfway through October, this year is certainly getting to the end. We’ll soon be making our way into a new year, and with a new year comes new minis. Privateer Press is all about having regular monthly releases, and 2018 will be no different. They’re showing off some of what you can expect from them in January.
Wielding enormous maces made from salvaged scrap metal, the ferocious troll basher is the favored warbeast of many Northkin. Troll Bashers are quick to anger and enjoy crushing enemies before devouring them. Northkin warlocks often let their bashers run at the fore of battle. There, their wild swings can cause the greatest harm to massed enemy troops.
Ice trolls use their innate connection to the elemental power of cold to create frozen javelins from thin air. They hurl these projectiles great distances to impale hapless warriors and pierce the flesh of warbeasts. Any who survive the impact die slower as icy javelins freeze their body from within.
Long feared by all who dwell in the frozen northern regions, this fierce troll happily endures extreme cold that would slay most living things. At one with ice and snow, winter trolls expel great gusts of frozen air that rip foes apart. Even striking a winter troll’s flesh prompts a backlash of intense cold that paralyzes its opponents.
Gatormen bokors do not loathe death, as other creatures and their dark arts are sacred rituals. The dank powers of death rise steaming from the swamps and can be bound into dead flesh, harnessed to augment the cold-blooded warlocks leading the Blindwater Congregation. Bereft of thought and suffused with necromantic power, the Soul Slave serves as a conduit for the will of its master.
The conjoined brothers Kwaak Slickspine and Gub were born with the gift of sorcery. This unusual pair fights on behalf of the croak tribes allied to the Blindwater Congregation, hoping to one day secure a permanent home for their people. The uniting of their bodies and souls allows them to output a blistering storm of magic, which they use to destroy any foe the Blindwater Congregation has marked for death.
