This is my favourite Chaos release for a long time, the Daemonic Warrior idea is a brilliant one and I love the details on this figure. And that axe is awesome, it's just begging to be used on a Daemon Prince model. Hell this figure could be a Daemon Prince, it has the look already.

Disputes being £17, I'm definitely gunna get this guy. He's just exactly what I've wanted from a chaos champ for a while. He has that semi beatial look like the games day sorcerer, and has just the right level of detail.
And he'll look just oh so awesome with the new travers with great weapons.
Nice to see the new AoS releases being covered again too (Y) :)

I love all the love that marauders are getting. Boxes of 20, and now an HQ type choice that is heavily blessed by the Chaos Gods? Hell yeah! Plus, that axe is amazing.

Overall a great model, with only a couple of gripes. Not sure on the talon gauntlet, and not overly keen on his 'derp smile' expression. Not fierce or scary - derpy. The Plastic Daemon Prince head with the horns in a similar position has the same problem. Just take the face from the Metal/Resin CSM Daemon prince & rinse and repeat that one.

Also, I know Chaos fantasy models have always been kind of boxey, but his physic isn't overly dissimilar to that of the 40k Orks - chunky legs and a barrel torso. This is entirely personal preference, but I preferred the leaner, canine look that the Bloodletters have had in their last two model styles. This guy looks like they are taking Khorne models back to the bull-like style they have prior to this. Not a fan.

I wish this model came with a helmeted option. I am not the biggest fan of my models conveying any sort of emotion, I always prefer the personality-less look of a helmet, ala the Warriors of Chaos model or even the Blightkings. To me, that look conveys a serious, grim, or just pallid blank tone that makes you think, "Well fuck, there's going to be no reasoning with a dude whos helmit just has a single hole for him to see through". the same way the enemy's feel in the Dark Souls series.

I appreciate that not everyone is happy/confident converting models, but a head swap is the easiest conversion to do. Just pick on of the nice helmets from the skull reapers or reavers or skull crushers etc, and cut the neck and back off head being used flat and glue.
If that's not possible then pin and blob a little green stuff between ans presto.

Having studied the model more the things I really dislike about it is something occurring in lots of models ATM. The dangly skulls on his axe.
Too fiddly and breakable, and they'd be a nuisance when swinging that axe about.
And secondly the fact that it'd be an awkward axe to wield with that punch dagger/fist.

Still love the model thoug!

Yeah I really like this model because it could count as a herald of Khorne or a Chaos Lord of Khorne, as is beastial appearance makes it appropriate for both.

Yeah, this model is entirely predicated on the rule-of-cool. It looks cool but makes little sense.

He has no shirt, chest armour, or helmet, but does have pants and knee armour. Doesn't make much sense.

He has a ginormous axe but based on the claw weapon's he handle could never hold the axe. Again, silly.

For the sake of the model actually making some sense, I might swap the hand for one holding a head or other trophy, and ditch the punch dagger. And then say he has gouging horns to give the punch daggers effects.
That or swap his hand to one of the ones from the blood warriors and maybe give him a smaller axe.

SonofVulkan 08-18-15 06:54 PM

I guess the way he is holding the Skullgouger will make it easy to convert it into a Runemarked Shield. Depending if you want to be offensive or defensive.

Although, GW failed to put the option on the sprue.
