Was going for soulblight actually with the claws and broadsword

I thought Soulblight or FEC straight away, the spines you can just see on the back of the forearm are similar to the Abhorant KIng, as are the claws.

Warcry flesheater courts.

I think they will take the opportunity with a Warcry Warband to start bringing the models in line with the lore a bit more.

Old Slaan returning to 40k? Doesn’t look Daemonic, which is often a suspect when odd hands are involved.

I’m genuinely stumped on this one.

Nurglings have that kind of hand. Bone flute seems potentially nurgly.

My guess is some kind of nurgling. Nurglings have 2 fingers and 1 thumb just like this.

Probably going to be one of the specialist games, but it would be absolutely ace if we got some new FEC units and warscrolls. Like, full units that is.

Well warcry warbands are full units. The chaos warbands are limited by the theme of them being aspirants who haven't sworn to a god yet. There is no reason why gw couldnt do a pretty interesting specialist unit for the fec aos army.

The Chaos Warbands are also limited by them putting all of the constituent parts of the warband into a single unit rather than letting you get a few heroes and a unit out of them.


I'm wondering if maybe this is a Warcry band for Ghyran. Some of the Spites from back in the day for Wanderers had two finger+thumb and they weren't exactly unknown from having bone as elements of design.

A musician suggests AoS, but those hand look mighty Kroot to me.

Also, skinks are natural artisans; even if a skink was somehow inclined to make a tool out of a random femur, they would do it better. At the very least it would be decorated, probably with glyphs or gold. This looks crude, like it was smashed with a rock rather than carved with a knife.

Interestingly it does look almost like those fingers have extra joints, they’re certainly disproportionately long for most of the Warhammer species. They look familiar too but I can’t place them exactly.
