Looks like they're in Line with other Ranges and not smaller that suggested.

Thanks!

Huh. I figured dwarves regular infantry was as light as they would go

Do we have any idea if Revenant Cavalry are going to receive a kit?

A set that will also work for Dwarf civilians? Wonderful!

I quite agree!

North Star/Osprey keep hitting it out of the park with these and the various *grave line of multi-part plastic kit boxes. So far my only real issue has been the overfed wolves.

They're still too muscled for me. I want partially-mummified, beef-jerky-over-bone revenants.

These look like skull-faced barbarians painted green, to me.

Revenant conversions, the Revenants don't have spears in the box.

I just flat out don't understand where they are going out what they are doing with the Revenants. I just don't get the vision.

Yea, very zombi-ish, but even the arms and such don't appear to be rotten, desiccated...

Look at the Ice King from A Game of Thrones, he wasn't desiccated and falling apart, his minions were in pretty decent shape as well....except their faces. Only the grunts were torn apart and dirty/covered in dried/frozen gore. So I guess it's just how you want your lords of undeath to look.

I suppose it does make kitbashing them with other undead kits a little harder, but I don't really mind their fresher look. It's either more like they returned from the realm of the dead in a very physical sense, or like they were brought back much closer to life than the typical skeleton nerd through more powerful magic.

It gives them a bit of a niche among undead kits which I do appreciate. You can kitbash them with other human kits more easily, too. Give them new heads and you've got perfectly decent generic Evil Warriors, or perhaps some kind of half-orcs.

Which doesn't exactly work if you paint them in the colours of living humans, i suppose.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Do we already have some info on their weapons? Just from the artwork, they seem to have the exact same options as the regular dwarf infantry minus the shields and chainmail.

the regular dwarf infantry has spears, though. some of the guys in the back of that picture, by the waterfall, appear to have shields. so these might have bows, two-handed weapons and hand weapons plus shields.

It is the kit for the Border Guard and Militia so 2 handed weapons and Bows respectively for them.

Any chance at crossbows to use them as Dwarf Rangers?

No, as these kits only have options described in their entries in the Oathmark rulebook.

I hadn't spotted that one before, so I hope it's new for you guys too!

I feel like I've spotted these two images in the thread already, but in case anyone missed them along the way:
