Champion of Khorne WIP
However, with the return to a monthly format and the promise of a free figure to mark the event, I took out a three month subscription (or as I like to think, a three month probation). I wanted to be sure I did not miss out and I don't live near to a shop - it may be available in newsagents but I couldn't take the chance. At a rate of £4 per issue it's a reasonable gamble. I am still leafing through the first issue so will come back to that in another post.
The cover mounted champion is a lovely figure. I will eventually use mine to lead a unit of marauders, but for the time being he is a lone champion, which is quite fitting as he has probably slaughtered his tribe to prove his worth - you know how aggressive these Khorne guys can be! He's a big 'un, just short of ogre height I would say. It's a tight squeeze to fit on a traditional square 25mm base. I chopped down the skull under his rear foot, it's now a rock. I also removed the skull impaled in his left shoulder as I felt it drew attention away from the head - it's now resting on the rock that used to be a skull, somewhat ironically perhaps. My aim is to get it painted as part of my September pledge, along with a dwarf champion.
