Title: Warband Samurai Apes and Eldritch Vampires released!
Post by: Leon on 27 August 2017, 10:32:19 PM
It's been a long time coming but we've finally got the last two Warband armies ready and released, completing all 12 armies for the rules!

The Eldritch Vampires are a vampire beggar type army, with thralls, vampires, ghouls and werewolves ready to take the field.  A lot of these are conversions from our old Beggar range, plus new sculpts for the command, necromancers, ghouls and werewolves.

Next up is the Samurai Apes, a little different but always popular, made of up of warriors, archers and tiger-riders, plus new command and shamans including a rather cool looking Oni figure.  

Each pack contains all different sculpts, so 25 different figures in the foot packs, 12 different poses in the mounted, etc.

Great addition! I like the Eldritch units, expecially the ghouls, werewolves and dire wolves. They' re good about horror based games.
Well done!

Any hints at artillery options for these?   I can see using undead items for Vamps, but what to use as a stand in for the Samurai Apes?

Banana slings?
Poo Catapults?
Marmoset cannons?
Baboon Blasters?

Neither of these two has any artillery in the army lists so you'd be looking at 'mercenary' units from other lists.  As you say you, you could use the Undead catapults for the Vampires but for the Apes you probably have to enlist some Dwarves or High Elves to help out!

Given the Far Eastern origin for rockets, perhaps the Napoleonic British Rocket crewed by a few converted Samurai Apes?

Organ gun (ELM16)

No puns*. I just like organ guns.
(http://pendraken.co.uk/_img/products/200/ELM16.jpg)
Perhaps firing arrows?

Samurai Cannon (SAM15)

*Yes, I know "organ gun" is nearly an anagram of "organutan".

What is the Vampire Lord riding? A giant Westie?

I haven't got a clue, Will.....It was the original 'steed'.

A mutant,l vampire 'Westie' is probably not far off the mark.  ;)

Yep - a dog, because they've just taken the old beggar range and renamed them vampires.

Pretty disappointed in a lot of the fantasy stuff. Looks like it's just an afterthought and since it's fantasy no effort needed. With werewolves that bad, why bother making them at all really?

Oh well - at least there are several variants now of a lot of the older figures that are decent to make units from - e.g orc wolfriders. And some command packs. And maybe the fomorians will be released eventually.
