The Fyreslayer Grimwrath Berzerker and Battlesmith are here, ready to bring fiery death to their foes! Come see them in the round
This week we get to see a release of TWO new Fyreslayer kits from GW: The Grimwrath Berzerker and the Battlesmith.
Hearthguard Berzerkers & Auric Runemaster
The Fyreslayers known as Grimwrath Berzerkers are the deadliest of their kind, extraordinary warriors who have survived the Test of Wrath to become the paragons of Grimnir’s war fury on the battlefield.
The Battlesmiths are those among the Fyreslayers who are both great warriors and artisans. For this, they are permitted to forge the Runefather’s icon, and then carry it into battle. This great honour brings even greater prestige.
Now this is more like it.
I think both of these minis work well. The Fyreslayers in general tend to look better with more bling and do-dads. Both of these minis are loaded up to the gills with ornate beards, braids, fancy weapons, dragon motifs and appropriate poses. The Berzerker is the stronger of the two and has a great sense of motion. The Battlesmith looks like he’d rather die than move from his position (unless you think he’s trying to hail a taxi).
These two avoided the pitfalls of the rank and file Berzerkers who had little detailing and equipment and such large ares of bare skin that it looked like the sculptors had issues defining a strong sense of movement and purpose.
No such issues here – well done GW!
4 stars out of 5
And again +100 Internets for not wearing striped (flammable) pants into combat.
~What do you think of the new minis? Better, worse, or about the same as the Old World Dwarfs?
