From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
The latest army announced for Age of Sigmar has caught the attention of many gamers who remember the game that Warhammer used to be.
The Ossiarch Bonereapers are an undead faction with an emphasis on the bones:
They are led by the Mortarch Katakros, who comes on his own scenic base:
The old Warhammer game had an undead faction known as the Tomb Kings of Khemri, and similarities between that old range (discontinued in Age of Sigmar) and these Bonereapers has not gone unnoticed.
Here’s a selection of the classic Khemri models:
Looking over those old models again, I think these have returned, but with the volume turned to 11.
Also making a reappearance is a redone (at higher volume!) version of the screaming skull catapault:
The first version of this model I saw dates from 3rd edition Warhammer (1988-1992) and it’s had a new versions since then, but the version above has sprouted legs and may be shooting ghostly skulls rather than literal ones, enchanted to scream.
A change from the previous model, but clearly part of the same continuum:
The Khemri army also featured bone chariots and skeletons riding cobras, among other units. I’ll be interested to see if we get some resonant upgrade for this Age of Sigmar outing.
