I wonder if it'll do anything in the game, or whether it is purely there for aesthetic value.


Goliaths have had chain-hawks since their plastic sprue (and one metal dude from back in the day) that have had no mechanical bonus, so I think this will be same.

Maybe that derpy champion last week was a reject sculpt for the project that birthed these guys? Both of them are decent enough.

There are already different named Goliath house agents and bounty hunters in House of Chains, with no models, but whatever.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Also, I know this is the potentially the dreaded "maybe it isn't FW" comment (sorry) but are these obviously resin? I don't have an eye for that. If they are moving to narrative expansions in Necromunda then perhaps they might start doing special characters in plastic (other than Kal Jericho).

I guess.... Who comes up with those brilliant names? That's something I'd expect out of a kindergartener.

For the Killfist guy - if it just had a few pistons, it could do a plausible Hulkbuster Ironman "go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep".

I also don't see how he swings that maul. Seems like the excessive length would get in the way, and his other hand definitely isn't free to help.

According to my analysis that guy is on *checks notes* ah yes, all of the drugs. I don’t think he particularly notices

Addendum - he also has a chainsaw on his head. Practicality of weapons may well be low on his list of priorities.

It's goliath they can swing these weapons in 1 hand without problem, but it would probably end up with massive overswing, hence why these weapons are usually unwieldy.


Even for non-goliath human but still have some muscle, like Orlock they probably can still use it in one hand if they hold it like a lance.

Guy with the combi-weapon is okay. However dude with fist and maul is overequipped. Just one of these melee weapons would be enough but nope. Gotta turn him into a parody of a mindless killing machine.

The man with a Chainsaw Mohawk is supposed to make proper sound decisions? He knows what he wants to do and that is melee things in a variety of ways!

The three recently revealed Goliaths, the Gorvos siblings and the propagandist/agitator pack incoming.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2022/09/04/sunday-preview-join-the-battle-for-middle-earth-with-next-weeks-pre-orders/

I had assumed that Messrs. Hammer and Kill-Fist were part of the cast of characters for Cinderak Burning rather than just "rules in the blister" jobs, but it rather looks like the latter. Given the existing dramatis personae from House of Chains with no models, it looks increasingly like FW will just release whatever the sculptors come up with without regard to what rules already exist.

Ollanius Pius - Savior of the Emperor






Gathering the Informations.

Escher's top bodyguard

The Matriarch’s Blade has been at Adina’s side since her ascension to the Council of Crones. Known across Necromunda as a deadly fighter with her master-crafted chainaxe, Athera often acts as her sister’s proxy in matters of honour, allowing her to single out an enemy ganger with a challenge – and gain bonuses while they occupy her full attention.

Wherever Athera goes, her Caryatid companion Stix is never far behind. These strange winged creatures are said to sense ill fortune – a trait especially valued by the Escher – and their forewarnings are prized in the ever-dangerous underhive.

Without the Rule of Cool, how would she wear those boots around the underhive? Her heels would fall though the gratings.

From that angle though, that's an amazing model.

The Caryatid looks so grumpy, its ace

The lady herself is pretty bonkers, but it looks good to me!

Its not just the insane heels, just think of all the vent fans that hairstyle would get caught in, and the mashers that the cloak drags her into

Her collar must help with determining the direction of sounds though.

I'm really glad the Necromunda team don't care, as the model looks great.
