Here is a Swamp Horror, a heavy Warbeast to go in my Hordes Minions force. I really enjoy playing with Swamp Horror in the Will Work For Food theme force, as the combination of Pull on the (many) tentacle attacks and Overtake (from the theme force) allows some hilarious moves on the table, sometimes including pulling a Warcaster clear of their screen and into range of something else that they believed they were safe from. Even just clearing infantry they can get a lot of work done because it is so hard to stay safe from the Swamp Horror’s huge reach. I’ve been playing two of these under Jaga Jaga, along with a Blackhide Wrastler – the addition of Signs and Portents plus Rage means that some serious work can get done. Of course, the pitiful initial threat range is a bit of a concern so I often lose one of the Swamp Horrors before it even makes a single attack.
I kept a very simple paint scheme for the Swamp Horror, trying to stick with the idea that this is could actually be an animal out in the wilds of the Iron Kingdoms. The colours chosen are (somewhat) naturalistic without anything too bright. As a result it was quite simple to paint, with only two colours covering most of the miniature. Assembling the Swamp Horror was a different matter; they’re made of metal and have loads of fiddly tentacles that need to be pinned. I can only assume that the ‘Horror’ part of the name refers to the experience of putting the miniature together.
