We got our hands on the Melusai kit – come take a look inside!

No need to cover your eyes with these Melusai, but their new kit might just go straight for your (wallet’s) heart! This kit is brand new from Games Workshop and is up for Pre-Order now. We got a box early and are happy to share the contents with you:

This is another great kit with tons of detail from GW. If Morathi didn’t win you over, then maybe her snake-like children will. The kit comes with enough bits to build 5 models, but you’ll end up with quite a few extras as well.

The Melusai box can be used to build either the Blood Sisters or the Blood Stalkers. One is a Melee unit and the other is a Ranged unit. Both are deadly in their own right.

Blood Sisters

Blood Stalkers

These sculpts are pretty cool and the snake half of the miniatures are some of the best we’ve seen. We already knew GW could do Witch Aelves, but the coiled serpents, with their cool, segmented underbellies and scaly hides look really good. Kudos to GW on those!

If you want to get your hands on this kit, you’ll have to wait until next weekend when they hit stores, but you can pre-order them today.

Melusai

Blood Sisters are powerful warriors used as bodyguards to High Priestesses or Bloodwrack Medusae, or as a potent vanguard for the war covens. Each Blood Sister is equipped with a heartshard glaive – a heavy polearm ideal for driving driving through armour and ribs to cut out an opponent’s heart. Blood Sisters can also channel the blackness of their tainted souls into a strike known as the ‘scáth touch,’ solidifying victims into an unmoving crystal statue that remains horrifically aware. The ultimate in cruelty is for a Blood Sister to thrust her glaive quickly enough to tear out a foe’s beating heart even as the scáth touch turns them to crystal, trapping them forever in a state of unimaginable agony.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 5 Blood Sisters. The first thing you’re likely to notice about these miniatures is their legs, or rather their lack – reshaped in the image of their creator Morathi, everything below their torso has been reshaped into that of a sinister, twisted serpent. Above the this they feature metal waist pieces with attached sashes, and armoured breastplates. The Blood Sisters feature intimidating full-face masks, each with expressions of fury and snakes framing their wild, swept-back hair. You have the option to build 1 model as a Gorgai, the unit leader: she can be distinguished by her uniquely jeweled mask, specific heartshard glaive and her grisly trophy – the heart of an unfortunate victim, clutched proudly in her left hand.

The Melusai Blood Sisters come as 100 components, and are supplied with 5 Citadel 40mm Round bases. This kit can optionally be used to assemble 5 Melusai Blood Stalkers.

 

What do you think of the Melusai kit for the Daughters of Khaine?
