Then these images turned up on BoLS Lounge and... in my opinion they suck!
Khorne is all about big beefy dudes (and dudettes one would assume) with axes and muscles and RAGE!!
But just have a look at these guys - they are WAY too adorned, the body proportions are all wrong and what's with the static posing? This is very disappointing and a real step back from what Games Workshop have offered in The End Times so far.!
What the Hell is going on with the guy in the top right corner? Can you imagine what he would look like with his arms down?
The helmets are quite cool, but apart from the icons they don't scream Khorne, and the horribly static leg positions have no dynamism to them at all!
The weapons are okay, but seriously, are these just meant to be pumped up Wracks, because if so - the Wracks do it better?!
These are the ones that really troubled me. Are these meant to look like no-necked Space Marines? How do these guys turn their heads? Some of the detailing on the armour is very intricate and that's cool, but those weapons are so cliche! They look like horror weapons you get at Halloween at the discount shop and those heads are terrible! With the amount of gear on them it looks like every designer in the room got at add their bit and we get a mess.
I'm getting a late 90s Aly Morrison vibe of them - and that wasn't a good time for anyone in the world of miniatures! Remember the old Dark Elves and Dark Eldar. Oh dear!
It could just be me - but I expected more and would have definitely bought these if they were better, but for me this may be the worst release this year and does not match either the art we have see or the feel of the amazing miniatures Games Workshop have been turning out for Warhammer!
