We got a closer look at some of the new Lumineth Realm-lords models and they look just as detailed as you’d expect from Games Workshop.

The next batch of Lumineth is on the way and they are going to be a fun hobby challenge to tackle for all you fans of the Lords of Light out there.

The ‘Roo Crew

Let’s start off with the new Vanari Lord Regent which can also be built as Lyrior Uthralle, Warden of Ymetrica. This is a great looking new model with a really unique mount option. I still can’t get over how much detail is on this model as there are a lot of little things going on that set it apart. From the rings on the horns, to many different textures of armor on both the mount and the rider, and even the various other cloths and textures – it’s a variable and interesting mix for sure. The model also has a different poses based on which version you’re building which is a nice touch.

The rider is different and it’s really just a few minor swaps and the addition of the rock. It’s a subtle change but it’s effective.

Ready, Aim, FIRE!

Up next, we have the excellent new Vanari Starshard Ballista. It’s great to see the nod to the High Elves from this model (and the Bladelords – more on them below). I really liked this kit because it really nails that aelvish “lithe but deadly” look and feel. The ballista isn’t huge or bulky but you get the sense that it’s going to punch through armor with ease. It’s easily one of my favorite kits of the range because it’s simple yet elegant. If I were playing LRL, I’d want these in my list just because I like the model that much.

Loreseekers Look On

The Scinari Loreseeker is a pretty straight forward model. A new hero dual-wielding a staff and sword, I get some serious “Combat Gandalf” vibes here. It’s also got some subtle hints at their academic and martial training. The crescent moon and sun on the helm are a nod to their lore-seeking background while the big sword says, “I DO know how to use this, too.” And it’s not a terrible support character either!

Swing Your Greatsword

If you were a fan of old school High Elves and in particular the Swordmasters of Hoeth, well they are back in all but name. The Vanari Bladelords are the spiritual ancestors of the Swordmaster temple. This unit and the ballista above really feel like a love letter to the Old World and I’m really glad GW has decided to embrace their history. They are clearly new and updated versions but have a strong nod to the old unit. That said you don’t need to know who the Swordmasters were to appreciate these cool models.

This is another unit I’d want to run just because they look cool. But hey, that’s just my opinion, man.

Twin Powers Activate!

Teclis and Tyrion aren’t the only twins running around. Meet Ellania and Ellathor! They represent the martial and academic philosophies of the Lumineth quite literally. One twin has a focus on magic while the other has a focus on martial skills – but they work together so well they function as a single model. Two parts of the same whole. It’s not even a metaphor at this point…Anyhow, it’s a potent pairing of might and magic in a single model. It should be a fun addition to the army.

These weren’t the only releases from the pre-order but these were the ones we covered in the video. Overall, this new wave is a fantastic addition to the LRL range and should help fill some gaps and provide players with a ton of new options to build and play with.
