June release for retail and trade

Oghurs, Men and Insane Beasts

The June releases are here, finally - and these twelve new miniatures are amazing! From both Darklands: First Edition and Darklands: First Edition II, these twelve represent the eighth and second set of releases from those projects respectively.

For the Albainn, we have their first unit - the Oghu Guardians, a unit of big lads called the Oghur; the Angelcynn get their first Werwulf, Hrōr, a Thegn; the Brythoniaid get the combined Urien on foot and on horse pack; the Fomoraic get themselves Mananaan on his horse; the Khthones gain another Hydrar, a Warchief this time in the snakey shape of Hanokh; the Norse have a foot and mounted pack for Knútr; and finally, the Ysians gain Akkaz, a Hound-Aberrant that is quite likely to rip your head off.

Sadly, we've not been able to get them painted in time for release, but the miniatures themselves are fantastic as always - and just like the previous releases, thanks to us being busier than busy bees we've just not had the time to get the release art and descriptions done; but you can still see some good images of each miniature on the website of course.

Oghu Guardians, Oghur Unit



This month brings another unit, and the first unit for the Albainn. It's the Oghu Guardians, five Oghur (Grubog the champion, Pabogg the banner bearer and three warriors, Drudd, Skrugadd and Undagg) that can go toe to toe with pretty much anything! Sculpted by Olivier Bouchet from the artwork by Thomas Mahon, the Oghur are a powerful monstrous infantry unit and a real boon to any Albainn general.

Hrōr, Werwulf Thegn



The amazing Hrōr is a fantastic sculpt by Stéphane Camosseto from the artwork by Des Hanley. He's our first Werwulf (man-wolf) - monstrous infantry that is larger than a man, but smaller than a Wælwulf - and whilst they are becoming wild and feral, they still wield weapons and bear armour. A very useful trait!

Urien, Teyrn of Môn on Foot and on Horse



Here we have the first "foot and mounted" pack for the recent releases of generals, for this enables you to save a bit of cash and get both forms. Urien of the Brythoniaid is the first to get the treatment, and he was sculpted by Juan Navarro Pérez from the artwork by Dan Warren.

Mananaan, Untain of Baalor on Horse



Following on from last month's Mananaan on Foot release, here's Mananaan on Horse! Sculpted by Pedro Fernandez from the artwork by Stefan Kopinski.

Hanokh, Kentarch of Ýdron



It's Hydrar day again - the Khthones gain another three-headed, crazy leader, this time Hanokh, a warchief of Ýdron. Sculpted superbly in 3D by Olivier Nkweti, from the amazing artwork by Beth Hughes!

Knútr of Víkin, Skipari of Hrafnen on Foot and on Horse



Another foot and mounted pack, saving you some money! This time it's Knútr of Víkin, and he was superbly sculpted by Allan Carrasco from the artwork by Danny Cruz.

Akkaz, Hound-Aberrant



A crazy two-headed dog beast drawn up by Danny Cruz, Akkaz is yet another insane creation for the Ysians. Sculpted by Aragorn Marks, the Hound-Aberrants are fast, deadly - and feral!

All of the releases above were officially released on the 6th of June 2015, and so you can order them right now.

Watch out for the July releases, which should be unveiled in the next week or so!
