Bah. Another bad one for Beastgrave.
Still too much of the mutant orc ghouls in these, and a shocking lack of character or detail for an Underworld warband. These look like Skyrim models when the textures don't pop in.

If it weren't for the goat elves, they'd be the worst one yet.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

I'm not sure why everyone want Fec to be less delusional. The whole hook is that they are the exact opposite of what they imagine themselves to be. Adding parodies of knightly armour or weaponry dilutes that effect. I would like to see them lean more on the horror than the comedy.

Massive shame that the Bret line is OOP as the way it's been amalgamated with the ghoul kit to produce this is great for the new fluff.

Apparently, it's because fluff has to be represented on the models....or something?

It would be cool, in my mind, to see a few things like that bone-armored ghoul from the warband. Guy probably thinks he's a mighty paladin, leading his fellows into righteous combat...rather than a nutter wearing a skeleton for a hat.

I think the Cawdor kit could be used in similar way, it probably is even better for this.

Wolves and ghouls. Perfect for halloween.

With better pics, I like most of the warband.
Bone armor guy is cool, though his arms make it look like he's gesturing or pleading at someone, not attacking.

Bone guy, the girl, and the champion are probably my least favorite. For a champion, the ghoul leader doesn't stand out at all. I can't even tell what he's on; a pillar, I guess?

Was always pretty obvious that they were going to be the first two sets after the starter given their presence in the rulebook.

I like them more having seen the clearer pictures. Definitely won't be painting them with that greenish tinge though. Very interested in how they're going to play - possibly Skavenesque?

Those 3 are my favourites haha. Bone dude does look like he’s saying ‘boo’ to someone though.

I should clarify and say that by bone guy, I meant the dude with the big bone, not the cool armored "boo" dude. lol
I feel like he'd be great in a conversion, offering his liege a nice piece of meat hes found

Now, is it just me, or are they all randomly sized? The boss looks pretty small, but the dude at the top looks massive by comparison. His arms aren't even that much bigger, its his torso thats huge.

Those ghouls kinda remind me of Garrek's Reaver, but the pose is not as good, Saek had way more expressive and powerful pose than bone club ghoul. I think all of them could use a bit more bone armor like that one ghoul.

I quite like them - reminds me fo the Descent films which I enjoyed.

Yep, this is...an underwhelming warband. If I can find them cheap I need some ghouls for the dungeon crawl, but I don't know if I'd bother with these. I'm trying to picture them in a better colour/nastier/bloodier. Maaaaaybe? Didn't cost of sets go up? Probably not going to be worth it in the end.

OMG the horse onna stick is amazing. I wish GW had gone that way with these... I don't dislike the ghouls but I think the insanity/delusion isn't as well-shown as it could be.

I’m hearing lots of broken Beastmen Spears in the new Beastgrave box. Saw one and some mentions online, and both of the ones sold here today had the same broken spear. Looks like it wasn’t just a poor design on one component on the sprue.

The look better than regular ghouls, but not that much. Will still get them to use as Night Lords cultists.

The one chomping on meat reminds me of one of the Paul Muller ones. That one eats a baby though, if I remember that right.

I think the Ghouls are the first warband where I'm not excited by the models, apart from the dude with the halberd.

They have some INTENSE pubic hair. Otherwise I think they look sort of cool. Freaky lady with the long hair is the coolest imo and would look amazing done in a pale flesh colour.

Except for the big guy (and the girl ghoul, obviously) they adhere to established ghoul anatomy, albeit with more varied poses that don't make my back hurt just from looking at them.

Maybe the sculptor thought it would be good to have a ghoul that's on its way to becoming a Crypt Horror in the set? It's the sort of heavy torso you see on them. I don't recall how they're made in AoS and therefore if that makes sense, but it was the first thing that came to mind.

It's just the Grym Watchers this week. No gobbo wolf riders, which is surprising as they usually do a twofer.
