FW: The Rogue Idol is Back

A mighty idol of Gorkamorka returns!

Rogue Idol has powerful attacks on the tabletop and gives bonuses to units near by. He is a great addition to any Orruck army. He’s available for pre-order now.

Rogue Idol – £65

When greenskins gather for war, their Shamans build mighty idols of Gorkamorka. Some are formed from the rubble of the Orruks’ recent conquests, mortared with noxious Squiggoth dung. Others are built using strange stone quarried in the deep places of the realms, or even incorporate volatile shards of realmstone or shadeglass within their lumpen forms.

Daubed with crude sigils, lit by roaring bonfires, the idols sit silent and menacing as the Shamans dance around them and the tribes bellow their war chants. The idols soak up ever more Waaagh! energy until at last the innate magicks of the greenskins react spontaneously with those of the realms themselves.

 

Will you be adding him to your army?

  • AEZ

    It’s probably a classic or something.. but it looks like those ugly models other companies make (the thing with warjacks I’m thinking about.. it’s the only word I remember at the moment)

    • Jay DeJarnett

      Yeah! It’s not like Forgeworld put out the Homer Marine. Oh wait too soon?

    • Admiral Raptor

      Even when it came out several years ago it was never much of a looker. The new paint scheme gets the most out of it, but I suppose there’s only so much you can do when your boss tells you to sculpt a crude pile of living rock that kind of looks like an orc.

    Orrksome model. Loving the paint job this time round. When it was originally release the painting was kinda bland on it. I wonder why FW ever discontinued it from sale in the first place?

    • Admiral Raptor

      Agreed, the colourful more cartoonish look suits it much better than the old drab paint scheme. Though it still comes in a distant second to the Colossal Squig in my books.

      • I_am_Alpharius

        Ah thats a great model. Frankly all the FW monsters are awesome. My personal favourite is the Magma Dragon.

        • AEZ

          Dread maw always appeals to me.. but not fitting in my Sylvaneth army.

          • I_am_Alpharius

            Sylvaneth army? Hmm well actually the Rogue Idol might fit that army well, although the Aelfs won’t benefit from its funky rules. The Basilisk or Carmine Dragon would fit nicely though.

          • AEZ

            Its destruction and I dislike the model so that is a no

  • The model is kinda cool but at £65 I think I’d make my own.

    • Bakvrad

      I hope you use squiggoth dung 🙂

    • I won’t even tell you what that converts to in Australian dollars… Some carved foam covered in some watered down filler/clay would give me the same result. And with the leftover money I could buy another start set…

  • Rafał Pytlak

    Greenskins golems? Lordy, feet dont fail me now!

  • dave long island

    Ah yes, the Orc homage to John Travolta in ‘Saturday Night Fever’… lol … For you clueless ‘youts’ https://www.google.com/search?q=satuday+night+fever&oq=satuday+night+fever&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l3.5270j0j4&client=ms-android-verizon&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8#imgrc=KJeMJPsHYGM-1M:&scso=uid_WZczfgAKk-IKg-kCzgyb4g_9:0

    Would be great to have a datasheet for this in 40K wouldn’t it. Stomping alongside my squiggoth Grunta 🙂
