They showed some pictures, and Rob Burman put them all up on the Salamander Armies (private) Facebook page - but I thought I'd steal and and allow everyone to see them!
So go big or go home. The Rhinosaur Cavalry are Large Cavalry, an definitely fit that part.
And if you want your cavalry to fly, well then you are getting the new Scorchwings!
And to lead them, how about a Ghekkotah Skylord on Scorchwing?
Of course there are the existing hard plastic salamanders primes. With the release will be three resin conversion packs.
First are the Unblooded, the young, inexperienced warriors
Who also get a Ceremonial Guard Captain to lead them (I'm guessing this will be a new Command option in Vanguard)
Of course, you will need some heroes to lead these new models
The Mage-Priest is an Arkosaur, much like the necromancer they released for the Undead warband.
So this is a huge release. There are still a few things missing from the list
- Ghekkotah Warriors
- Ghekkotah Hunters
- Kaisenor Lancers
- Ancients - paint your primes differently
- Fire Drake (this could just be the slasher model with the new fire drake head) and no riders
- Herald - the Salamander Veteran would work
- Battle-Captain on Rhinosaur - Convert one of your Rhinosaur cavalry models
- Ghekkotah Clutch Warden - use Artakl
Still, they will have 24 of the 29 possible units - which it seems are mainly the Ghekkotahs! With any luck these will also be coming soon.
Because it is all fun and games . . .
I keep coming back to this in my excitement over this release, so thanks for pulling these together! Did we get some idea about release date for these? Vaguely this summer?ReplyDelete
I can't say (and it seems like the release dates keep changing), however a quick google search does show some places have pre-orders for the Kings of War stuff already (though I don't see any for Vanguard, and they usually release them first).Delete
