Gods War figure teaser (there is another link to it in a thread, but I think that link is broken).



So here is the test. Can you name them all? The spoiler section below sort of gives the answers.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
here they are in alphabetic order, which is not how they appear in the video: a boggle, the Brown Dragon, Cragspider, an Earth goddess, Genert, a giant (Gloranthan style), the Inhuman King, Kyger Litor, the leviathan, a Luathan warrior, a Lunar assassin, a Maidstone Archer (aka Grotaron), the Mother of Monsters, Orlanth of course, the Red Dragon, a scorpion man, a scout dragonewt, and the Sky Terror.

These really look fantastic. I didn't think I would like them as much as the CW figures but these are looking like they might outdo some of them. Strong work Sir!

*jaw drops* I keep watching this!

Are these all going to be to scale (for RPG use)?

With a person strapped to his leg that could make the giant quite large!

These are all really good, but the giant, the boggle and especially the grotaron are -amazing-. I didn't need any help wanting to go all-in for this one, but this would've done a fair bit of persuading if I had.

Please don't do this too me. I already had to stick with tomb herd for my OS2 pledge due to unemployment, and now you are throwing something else crazy at me right after.

Who's doing the sculpts?

Where's a link to a discussion on how awesome these figures are by the Gloranthan fans?

I hope we get an art book like what we got cthulhu wars. Just so we can see why they all were designed the way they were.

Quick question, what are the dragons for?

The dragons are like hazards that you and other players have to deal with in the game if you include them. Like they might come and kill some of your units or something.

These figures are all going to be scale, for RPG use. I suppose one could argue that the Leviathan is too small, because he's only 75mm across his base, and probably the real thing is like a kilometer across. The figure as it stands is still immense though (as big as anything in Cthulhu Wars).

And actually we have a problem with the Giant. The torso strapped to his leg is slightly too big compared to our normal size units. Because that's how colossal the giant is. His base is 75mm across.

you are mostly correct, except for your identification of the dragons & the Sky Terror. The Sky Terror has 6 wings.


The Brown Dragon has 6 legs. The Red Dragon has 2 legs, making it, technically, a wyvern. We also have a Black Dragon, who has 4 legs. All the dragons have a pair of wings of course.

And there is one more dragon-like entity (besides the dragonewts). The Sky Emperor is a wyrm, with no legs. He's wrapped around his throne.

Well, it IS 10 months afterwards, which is hardly adjacent timing-wise.

I will say that the Waertagi Dragon Ships are not to scale, but are rather, symbolic. Also that the buildings are not all to scale, but are representative.

Which means the Sky Terror is the 6 winged beast.
Corrected order would be:

Keep in mind that this video shows just some of the figures that we've got rendered models for, and that they aren't all 100% final yet (some little tweaking still happening in the final detail pass). We also have a TON of hand sculpted figures that we'll be revealing very soon...

Looks amazing guys! I'm excited to try the PnP and hoping the gameplay is just as good as the figures!
