We’ve got a whole new batch of Dark Age releases for you today. The Skarrd continue with their horde of releases worming their way to the table, but The Brood’s not letting them have all the fun. Let’s dive into what new box sets are hitting store shelves.
Starting things off, there’s the new Skarrd Command Box. When dealing with the screaming, beckoning Horde of the ravenous Skarrd, having true strength in command is key. At the head of the tribes are the physically and psychically powerful Tribal Fathers, instructing the surgical augmentations of the Grafters and Sisters of Charity as well as ushering the psychogenic skills of the Bone Docs and the Fetish Bearers.
After them, it’s time to find a new religion with the Skarrd Cult of Worms Unit Box. When Saint Johann and his followers inhabited Salvation’s Stronghold, they worked on many different grafting experiments, but few more disturbingly successful than turning the massive indigenous worms – the zmei – into the feared Drillheads. Those grafters put in charge of the project obviously didn’t stop at adding drillings to the worms, but them went and grafted the Drillheads to their own bodies. Now these vile creatures and their masters exist like some form of religious parody, a Church of Worms.
Next, we go big with the Decay Cult Monstrous Unit Box. While monsters can be frightening, and the walking dead truly unnerving, it is when these two are combined that terrifying mayhem can truly be sown amongst enemy ranks. Dishonors are towering animated shells of Dragyri Trueborn warriors, while the Macabres are mutated Buzzblades who have become addicted to consuming rotting flesh. Together they often form monstrous pillars of the Decay Cult battle strategy.
Keeping with the “bigger is better” theme, we next have the Skarrd Golab Unit Box. Golabs use large weapons, usually heavy massive broadswords, beyond the ability of normal warriors to lift. Nearly all of them have undergone grafting, replacing their off-hand with mechanical claws. Golabs can cleave through a man with a single swipe of their broadswords, never letting their sword fall from their mechanically-strengthened fingers.
If that’s not big enough for you, check out the new Warhead Unit Box. Warheads are the largest and most physically powerful of the Skarrd, surpassing even the Golabs. The Warheads are born with only one purpose – combat. They have an incredibly strong and dense musculature, enabling them to shrug off attacks, while giving them the power to tear their enemies, limb from limb.
From the biggest to the smallest, the Brood also have a new release this month in the form of the Pud Hatchery Box. Arguably the most utilitarian creature in the Brood’s entire life cycle, the Pud Roamer is a slithering resource that can be used to heal wounds, fuel other abilities, or even take a bite of a foe that gets too close. One Pud is a worry, but when they gather into huge writhing Swarms… watch out!
There you have it. All of these are available now at your FLGS.
