When Warcry appeared on my radar I was slow to become interested, except in regard to the war band from the Corvus Cabal. A crow themed warband doesn’t come along very often, so should not be passed up when you find one. However, instead of getting on with the crows I have been distracted by wanting to play the game as soon as possible. To get figures on a table it was not the Corvus boys and girls I went to first, but my old undead figures. In the rush to get figures ready for a game I have bypassed (again) what I should be focusing on.
That distraction should be over now as I have painted up my final figure for this warband. The leader for the undead faction is a Necromancer. Up until now, I have been using a suitable stand-in, in the form of a Wyrd Miniatures Pandora figure. She provides a suitably evil looking mage but is not deathly enough for my tastes.
Thankfully, for a warband made up of very old skeletons, a suitably old Chaos Sorcerer was found to play the part of their leader. This chap is from about 1985 and back then I may have had a few figures from this section of the range. Sadly all those miniatures have been lost to the sands of time, so its nice to have one back in the collection.
A short run at Google shows me he was called Sli’th Iron Lung. I really should get these boys together for a warband group shot soon.
