Wicked Harvest: Dread Rots and Hollowmen

It’s Wicked Harvest week! This week we’re working our way through the contents pf the Grymkin Core Army  box. Warlock, Warbeasts, Units and Solos.

Let’s have some infantry today. The pumpkin-headed Dread Rots are the twisted and tormented souls of farmers who have hoarded their crops and were lazy and slothful in their duties, perhaps making slaves of your families to fill their fields. It strikes me that there must have been a lot of bad farmers over the years to fill the ranks of the units…

The Hollowmen are also negligent in their duties, those who have signed and sworn to fight for their countries but instead have fled the battlefield or left their brothers-in-arms to fight without them, breaking their oaths and succumbing to cowardive.

The wicked harvest has marches ever onward.

Each of the Dread Rots is a three piece model – Body, weapon, bag. What the heck’s in the bags? Per the fluff I originally pondered if it was their original heads, but I’m not so sure…

It’s pretty simple to work out which component goes with which body. The bags are a giveaway. Over the right shoulder…

… over the left shoulder…

… swinging from shoulderstrap…

Or, if you’re the unit leader, you just sit it on the ground behind you. Scythes need two hands, after all.

The Hollowmen are also three part models, except for the Lantern Man. Each has a backpack, somewhere to keep photos of loved ones and old mason jars filled with jam.

The unit leader’s backpack has his thermos on the front, while Captain Waistline here has his horizontal on the side of his pack.

Coif dude has his hanging on the side too, but it’s at an angle. The Khadoran Hollowmen don’t have a thermos. Read into that what you will.

And the Lantern Man (someone please paint him green…) has no backpack, for he has eschewed all mason jars, be they ffilled with preserves or with salads someone saw on Pinterest.
