Now that we’ve looked at all the new forces of Saint Mary, lets look at some of the generic options that can fight for any Saint.
As I discussed in the Saint Mary article, each of the Forsaken saints has access to their own unique stable of troops, but there is also a pool of “generic” models that any Forsaken army can field. Today we look at some of those.
All of these pictures come from Gen Con pre-releases. When will you be able to get your hands on them? It hasn’t been announced yet, but we’ll let you know whenever we do.
The Weaponsmith is pretty much a necessity if you want to play Forsaken and take ranged weapons. Guns are very likely to malfunction, and this guy will help make sure they don’t blow up in a model’s face when they do. Of course that gun he carries is a fine ranged weapon, so even if you never have a weapon malunction on you, this guy will likely get some shots off himself.
The new Weaponsmith is such an obvious improvement over this old one I won’t even bother listing all the reasons why.
Like most single model blisters in Dark Age he will set you back $13.
Only 3 simple pieces in the kit.
This is another one of those models where a little bit of character, nice realistic proportions, and a good pose win out over ornate weapons and armor.
Here’s his card with the Brom art that inspired the model.
These guys are some of my favorites. Wasteland ninjas is I how I’d have to describe their look.
I can’t imagine anyone will miss these old Strikes.
The blister of these guys ran twenty bucks, like most three model blisters in Dark Age.
The models are quite nice, although you will need to be careful with those thin blades and hilts. All the crazy face spikes were cast pretty well.
Here’s a look from the other side.
Once again, the card with the art that inspired the minis.
Did you always want to shoot saw blades at people? Ok cool, that’s what these guys are for. And now you can shoot saw blades with great new resculpted models.
These old versions have a fairly impressive amount of detail, but their proportions are all off and their poses are very flat so they could be cast in the minimum number of pieces.
Four Coils will set you back thirty bucks. Not bad for metal models. And at 50 points a pop the four of them are nearly half your army in a 500 point game.
These new models will require some assembly but the realistic poses make it more than worth it.
And here’s a look at the other side.
I went ahead and took some close-ups so you can really get a good look at the detail.
This is what Brom’s original Coil art looked like. I’ve always thought it was funny that there’s no sign of the Disk Launcher on it at all.
If you want to see all the new Forsaken Cards you can find pictures of all of them on the Dark Age Facebook page. The ones on the Dark Age website are currently out of date, but I’m sure they’ll post a PDF of them up there soon.
~Hope you enjoyed the article. I’ve only just begun with these Dark Age unboxings so keep an eye out for more soon.
