Fresh from the Hell-Forges of Lathe, the Castigators have taken possession of another vile and blasphemous Daemon-Engine. As the inhabitants of the Pandora Cluster scurry deep underground to escape the attentions of the Castigators' Heldrake, little do they realise that they are being herded into the waiting arms of a Maulerfiend codified 'Tormentum.'
The Maulerfiend was a model that didn't really make my soul sing aesthetically and I really wanted to convert one to look similar to a Fiend of Slaanesh.....yeah I know, I'm probably the only person who thinks that Fiends of Slaanesh look ace, but there you go. Unfortunately an upcoming tournament put paid to that idea, so I just had to build it straight from the box.....sometimes you just have to grit your teeth, paint it quickly and get it on the table.
I'm reasonably happy with how it's turned out considering it only took a couple of days to paint. I'll probably return to it later, when I have more time, although my
On the battlefield it usually runs with my Spawn and Bikers, if it makes it into combat it usually performs admirably. Fortunately it's cheap enough that if fails to make it into combat (it really does seem to get immobilised an awful lot!), then it's not the end of the world. It would be interesting to see how effective two of them would be but I prefer to run highlander lists so I doubt if I'll ever run another, but who knows? Maybe one day my competitive streak will return.
Until next time.....may Our Lady grant you her number ;-)
