The undoubted hero of this expansion is the Gloomspite Gitz very own Trugg the Troggoth King, who is first available this week in Trugg's Great Troggherd with his bodyguard of Troggoths. Wow, spell check really hated that sentence! If you have now fallen for the Warriors of the Mushroom, then you may want to pick up the Gloomspite Gitz Dice Set, or in fact one of the heroes of the Dawnbringer Crusades, Rabble-Rowza, available for the first time on his own in this week's pre-orders!
Now if you're more into brutes with blades, then the big Orcs (the Orruks) are probably more your style. That being said, then you're probably grinning from ear to ear seeing the new Tuskboss on Maw-grunta/ Maw-grunta with Hakkin' Krew/ Maw-grunta Gouger combi-kit! Big Orcs on big boars... what a combination!! This mini was previewed some time ago, and finally they are here, and with multiple combinations of builds this will also be a converter's dream. The Orruks also bring an interesting character model to bear with a smithy, Zoggrok Anvilsmasha, and his cute little portable anvil. Of course this little guy caused "squees" all across the Community, but if you're more traditional in your appreciation of pure destruction, then the new Ardboys are definitely a must-have! The Ardboys are the classic Black Orcs reimagined, and with the new Ardboy Big Boss and bigger, badder, chunkier Orruk Ardboys on pre-order this week, has the sun not shone favourably upon us? Praise-be!! It's not just heavy armour, it's also Bezerkers, and they're here with the new Brute Ragerz/ Weirdbrute Wrekkaz combi-kit. Bouncing around, shirts off, lots of sweat, these dudes will carve their way through the enemy!
Orcs come in many flavours, and one such off-shoot are the swampy Kruleboyz, who this week get a new boxed set, with the Vanguard: Orruk Warclans on pre-order. Having a look at the price though, you'd be better off hunting out a Dominion boxed set - they retail for around the same and you get many more miniatures!
In books this week we have yet more in the Age of $igmar world (speaking of the Dominion boxed set) with Yndrasta: The Celestial Spear in Hardcover.
