Was there an unpainted sneak peak pic of this from Salute? I'd love to see it in the bare resin too if possible

We at Spiral Arm Studios are proud to announce the immediate release of the Karist Angel Hellblaster unit. A valuable addition to any Karist force and our first ever resin model! It seems fitting to release a monstrous creature on Halloween!



The Angel Hellblaster is a juvenile form of an Angel. Larger than a minnow but smaller than a mature Angel, juvenile angels can take many forms, but Karist Keepers try to goad certain Minnows into a Hellblaster form for the many tactical advantages the Hellblaster type offers.

First and foremost, the Cybel Blast ability sets these guys apart from the rest of the Karist forces. Using a powerful template blast, they can really hold their own.


Cybel Blast: Range 24", SHO 2+SB, PEN 4, DAM 1, Special: AoE (SB), Explosive (6+).


The full Angel Hellblaster profile and force builder elements can be found on the Force Lists section of the Maelstrom's Edge website.

Two distinct models are available in a single pack:



The Hellblaster sits on a 44mm base, the same as the Epirian Spider Drones and Hunter Warmechs. Here's what the Angel range looks like now:



If you have wanted to build an all-Angel army, we are just one model away from it being completely viable, and the Angel Hellblaster will be the Hammer of your force.





The Angel Hellblaster is available now in the Maelstrom's Edge webstore.

Spiral Arm Studios are proud to present our latest release in our continuing one release per month cycle - Karist Heavy Weapons.







These weapons are resin, with slightly up-armoured Karist troopers carrying and operating them. One of the weapons can now be added to your basic Karist Trooper squads for +1 to +2 points, or you can build an entirely new Anvil unit with two heavy weapons - the Karist Trooper Heavy Squad.







Weapon and unit rules are available on the Karist online unit cards section of the Maelstrom's Edge website.




The models are available for purchase right now at the Maelstrom's Edge store.




You'll also notice that the kit comes with a Karist trooper head which has the mask removed, revealing the human underneath.







The above model is also demonstrating the alternate arm option, holding a cybel ammo cannister. Parts are broadly interchangeable with the rest of the Karist range, opening up further options and conversion possibilities!

Hey those are really nice! Good job on the new weapon designs and the heavier trooper armor nods to the elites... Also like the mods to the helmets (tri-eye, more angular). And of course, the shark-gills on the bracers.

Pretty impressed guys, these are nice additions!


Seriously, good job, it's pretty damn sexy -

Yeah, I'm having a play with a couple of these now. I'm seriously in love with the lance and the multi-barrel grenade launcher.

They're fantastic models, and the resin caster is some sort of wizard.

And... ordered. :-)

Any chance you can have pdf files with the cards in for each faction that get updated? The print webpage thing hasn't worked for me at all and I have to print screen, then crop, paste into a program I can use measurements in and adjust the size to card size before printing.

I've been waiting to do an order once a few of these new sets are out.

Do the troopers come with 2 of each heavy weapon option or just 1 of each?

In addition to Gimgamgoo's feedback, I think that the Karist weapon summary is missing at least one of the new heavy weapons.

The Angel Hellblaster's Cybel Blast and the two new heavy weapons (Cybel Lance & Ripper Heavy Grenade Launcher) are not on the summary yet.

We're working on updating that now, but in the meantime, the stats for those weapons are in our online force builder:

https://www.maelstromsedge.com/medge/forcelist.jsp

Just go to the relevant unit's card and at the bottom there is a summary of each unit's equipment and abilities.

We're still working through adding all that info into the force builder, but those new weapons have definitely already been added.

Spiral Arm Studios are proud to present our latest release in our continuing one release per month cycle - The Karist Keeper.







This high quality resin kit contains one Karist Angel Keeper model with two weapon options and a 25mm base. The cybel Goad can be assembled in a variety of angles for added dynamism. This Command model enables an all-Angel Karist army to be fielded, creating a very visually distinct force.







Angel Keepers are a strange, isolated offshoot within the Karist Priesthood. For hundreds of years, the Keepers of the Karist Enclave have enslaved the alien creatures known as Angels, keeping them docile using regimented doses of cybel energy. The Keepers experiment on their captives, using different forms of cybel energy and electromagnetically charged cages to shape the Angels, encouraging them to grow new limbs or shapes to match the Enclave's requirements. While all Karists are secretive, Keepers take this mantra to another level. Keeper Initiates hand-picked from amongst the ranks of Novitiate priests secretly study sacred texts from venerated Keepers on both the Karist faith and the complexities of caring for the Angel creatures. Some Initiates drop out when they witness the trapping of Angel Minnows with tainted cybel energy. But those who persevere with their training find Angels to be magnificent, transcendent beings, and pledge their lives to the cause. Junior Keepers undertake a vow of silence, abandoning common human pursuits to focus solely on the miraculous Angels. Keepers study Angels for many years, learning to train and even speak to them in a rudimentary, computer-assisted, language. Those that graduate to the full rank of Angel Keeper undergo surgery to replace their vocal cords with a cybernetic enhancement, effectively allowing them to 'speak' the language of the Angels.







Keepers are the least public of the Kaddar sect, having little to do with local populations, but fulfilling the critical role of Angel harvesting and training. On the battlefield, Keepers are tasked with marshalling Angel units to attack the enemy, an often tricky prospect. As the Angels feel the effects of mass and gravity far stronger than their other senses, Keepers can lead Angels around using the pulsed gravitic generator attached to their voicebox. The combination of sound and gravitic waves is irresistible to smaller Angels, but headstrong Mature Angels often ignore these orders if more tempting prey is available. Therefore, Keepers also utilise grenade launchers equipped with Swarmer rounds to douse enemy units with Na-Cybel. Not only do enemy units become incapacitated through temporary euphoria, but the Na-Cybel also draws the attention of any Angels nearby. When a Keeper and an Angel are in harmony, the consequences for their enemies can be devastating.




Weapon and model rules are available at the Karist online unit cards section of the Maelstrom's Edge website.




The Karist Keeper is available for purchase right now at the Maelstrom's Edge store.

I love the armor and fabric layers. He looks really badass. Unfortunately, his helmet has a hole in it that would need to be putties or painted out.

Armed with that cybel goad and painted red, he would make an awesome guard for any supreme leader named after the muppet who sold smack on Sesame Street.

What hole are you referring to?

For that matter, what helmet are you referring to...?

The helmet that covers his face and the right half of his head. Clearly, battlefield head gear should cover the whole cranium, so that gap where you can see his left eye and temple and this service studs must be a hole in otherwise serviceable gear.

Ah, ok. It's not a helmet. He has an eye piece over his right eye, and a vocaliser to communicate with his Angels.
