I happened to be inside an actual Games-Workshop establishment a while back, on the eve of the release of the new edition of the Fantasy rules (Is it Fifth Edition now? I’ve lost track) and my true purpose was to find some Cold Ones from the Lizardmen to see if they were anywhere near suitable for conversion into the kind of Muties that I like, that is, still vaguely similar to the previously released editions.
Alas, I found the Cold Ones not to my taste. Then the gentlemen of GW looked around furtively and pulled out their advance copy of the new rules and thumbed through it to the Chaos section. And they showed me these lovely ladies. These are of course plastic models and come in boxes of 5 for a fairly reasonable sum of £15 sterling. While the mounts are two legged instead of the four legged horses available originally, I felt they would convert very well into desert traversing beasts.
They’re due for release on the 7th August and I feel represent what could actually be the basis of an entire Mutie mob, given that the warriors cost a fair bit. My current mob, while powerful, still only has five member and I think this is the ideal box for folks who feel like getting a bit weird in their Gorkamorka mobsters.
Of course, these models lack the necessary firearms to be a true Mutie mob, though I have to say, there are some wonderful claws that fit the nice Scything Blade mutation available in the soon to be released “Da Green Pitz”. While the actual upper bodies probably won’t be used, instead being built out of Green Stuff, I’m definitely grabbing a pack of these to have my surgical team turn into some real freaks.
I wonder if we know a certain Dok who has a penchant for making tiny, wonderful firearms? Possibly coupled with a nifty annual Flamekebab came across, we’re looking into outfitting this new band of Muties with some serious new hardware.
Oh, I’m Mattz by the by. Resident Mutie player and one of the folks working on turning ‘Ere Be Stuff into reality. Pleasure to meet you all proper.
Stay Green 😉
