Let’s be honest, Games Workshop does a pretty solid job of marketing their new games and building up hype, generating FOMO – Fear Of Missing Out – for their boxed games. It really doesn’t help that their model production is top tier, and their designers somehow manage to pour some real variety into concepts when they put their minds to it. Case in point, Warcry – where they managed to create some beautifully distinct warbands for base level chaos cultists, along with a game that gives a taste of Age of Sigmar with a much smaller model commitment and some super sweet terrain.
When Warcry was released I was lucky enough to get the Untamed Warbeasts from the core box thanks to pal Brandon, and the warband made it onto the to-do list for this year’s Brush Wielders Union goals.
They’re still pending basing, but following the “Chris likes painting colours” rule that gave us my “Skittles of Death” version of Warhammer Underworlds’ Sepulchral Guard, the Untamed Beasts are ready to make their opponents taste the chaotic rainbow.
