Hey gang, want to a look at the new Aberrant sprue? Well click on in then, see all the weapons, signs, and fancy bits you could possibly want.
As long as the bits you want are included on the sprue. At any rate, here’s a look at the latest Aberrant Kit–there’s a whole lot of new stuff crammed in to one sprue. So dig in, enjoy, and get ready to praise the almighty Four-Armed Emperor, who protects us all and just wants us to rejoin him in glory. And biomass.
GW is really killing it in the engineering department. I just want to take a minute to appreciate just how much is crammed into this single sprue. I mean 41 bits, that’s impressive. Five years ago, even, you wouldn’t have gotten this much on one sprue–anyway, enough about the design of this, those bits are RAD!
One of the things that appeals to me about this army is the sheer variety of over-the-top options they have. I mean, it all makes sense–of course a monstrosity is going to rip a stop sign out of the ground and start bludgeoning people with it–they’ve got the genetically enhanced strength to do it, and it’s close at hand. But there’s something endearing about that image. It reminds me a lot of the Super Mutants out of the Fallout Games.
He’s making do with a fire hydrant and a car bumper bolted on for armor. That’s sort of the scavenger-y ramshackle vibe the other cultists gets, and this Aberrant kit leans into that to a wonderful degree. These guys are just using what they have at hand, and it shows, and it gives them a ton of character.
At any rate, that’s all we have for you today. But keep your eyes peeled, we’ll have more delicious plastic goodness for you when we can.
And remember, it’s not heresy if there’s still an Emperor involved.
