Surely this means that we will be getting a Phoenix God/Gorm God in the future?!?!?! The art on that miniature is beautiful and I had ZERO ideas that this was coming. Was this something people have been expecting and I missed out on that announcement?

(Peep update #9 to see what I'm referring to.)

I believe the sculpt was revealed during gencon. I absolutely love the art but the miniature just looks alright to me. I'm not exactly sure why I'm not thrilled about the mini. It just seems off.

The Screaming Antelope was one of my least favorite miniatures, but I love this one.

Maybe if we get a God version of the three base game miniatures there will be a new "God" armor set where you have to get resources from all three of the Gods? Could be as difficult (hopefully a little less difficult) to acquire as the Green Knight Armor set. Ballad of the Gods campaign?

Doubtful; the Lion God has no specific resources. You could perhaps use some of the treasures from beating it, I suppose.

Yes, that's what I meant. You have to use specific items for Ballad of the Green Knight, so it isn't out of the realm of possibility!

The art looks like a "Screaming God". Or at least a screaming something.

The mini sculpt looks good, but... more discomforted and confused perhaps. A "Yelling God" perhaps?

Personally... I think it needs the mouth to be stretched more open (and maybe facing straight ahead?) so that it's obviously screaming rather than yelling (all KDM monsters should be uncomfortable to look at, I think) and it needs a big dick and balls (even if they're just a giant arm and mask/face spheres). Seriously. I know a lot of people don't care for the sexual horror themes, but right now it seems very anatomically incorrect for this game.

So, spoilers for some of the monster descriptions.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
The Lion God had something to do with a controlling parasite, the Necromancer who controlled the Silver City (something like that). The Screaming God has a similar theme with parasites and royalty going with it. In it, the monster is infected with Lantern Parasites. There is a Lantern Parasite Queen somewhere in there, noting some sort of ruling over something. I would guess the idea of a "God" monster is more like it is a host to some sort of parasite or controlling being. Or, it could be something to note a royal connection.

Also note the phoenix is infested with tiny hand parasites. Seems to be some kind of micro-biological threat wrought into the fabric of the KD universe.
