Legend tells of an oasis deep in the Badzones. A place where the Hive burrows beneath the Ash Waste crust and the only source of light is from the luminescent spores that drift amongst the fungal infested corridors and caverns. The oasis is a safe harbour from the abominations and horrors of the Badlands but it is not without its defences.
Tales of hulking shadows and unseen assailants are told by those foolish enough to try to enter this oasis. They speak of a Shepherd who cares for the inhabitants of this near mythical place and in many Outland settlements free Ogryns speak of a Shepherd that led them out from the Hive.
Amongst the Forges and Fighting pits Ogryns talk of this legend, spreading his name amongst their ranks...although this is usually limited to just three words...Badzone...Shepherd...Freedom.
A while ago I bought Hrothgorn's Mantrappers with the sole purpose of creating a Khimerix for my Escher gang. After rapidly coming to the conclusion that the Khimerix is bloody useless I shelved the idea but I really liked the models and a seed was planted on how I could use them as adversaries/NPC's for our games.
For a model painted in less than 3 hours I'm more than happy enough with it.
And the beauty is I can always go back to him and add more detail....I won't though 😉
Like their master, nobody knows the origins of the Imps. Many think they're Mutants, some say that they're some off world xenos species that proved too mischievous for their uphive noble owners. Others claim that they're Caryatids that have had their wings clipped. What is known as that they have undergone a drastic procedure at some time in the past and despite their diminutive size they have proven more than capable of defending their homestead.
Until next time....may the Hive Spirits watch over you! 😉
