Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

From portrait to plastic

Games Workshop recently revealed a new plastic chaos space marine terminator character, Azrakh the Annihilator:

If it looks familiar to you, perhaps you remember this classic Mark Gibbons illustration from the 1990s:

The sculptors and painters have done a great job in bringing this artwork to life as a miniature.

It’s unfortunate that the only way to get this figure is to subscribe to the still-unimpressive Warhammer+ app. You could look at it as a figure that comes with some irrelevant stuff for slightly more than it might cost by itself.

This time Games Workshop are offering the miniature early to anyone who signs up for a full year. I could write more about the continuing lacklustre nature of the app, but I will limit my comments to the observation that it’s value is mainly to those who want the ‘free’ miniature and consider the app to be an added bonus.

If you fall into this category then Warhammer Community has more details.

    Aye, it’s a bloody beautiful miniature, as you say though it’s a shame that it’s only available through Warhammer+. If it was easier to get hold of I might be tempted but as things stand honesty compels me to acknowledge that I don’t need this miniature to live, I was perfectly happy before I saw it and I’ve got a lot of other stuff on my desk that I should be concentrating on instead. As for Warhammer+ I reckon at some point I’ll pay for a month and binge-watch a few things then cancel it, these days money is too tight to waste on something this is – as you say – distinctly lacklustre overall.

      I am leaning the same way, it’s a nice miniature, but not a must-have, and there’s plenty more out there. Even I have a few unpainted models back on my desk now!
