Painted Tharn Ravager Chieftains

Here are a pair of Tharn Ravager Chieftains, unit attachments for Tharn Ravagers in my Circle Orboros army in Hordes. They’re pretty much a sure addition to any unit of Ravagers, being a possible free card in Devourer’s Host and giving exactly the abilities that Ravagers want to see. Specifically, they grant Vengeance to allow an out-of-activation attack if the unit took damage in the previous turn; a likely (even somewhat desirable) event considering that the unit natively has Tough and a form of healing. They also have a minifeat to allow Overtake, allowing one turn of going really wild with corpse tokens and leveraging that large reach on their axes.

The Chieftains were considerably more enjoyable to paint than their units (here and here). Being metal rather than the horrible resin/plastic material that PP used for the actual Ravagers really helps, and the details were nice and clean. In addition, I’d bought these second hand and the paint stripping process seems to work considerably better with the metal miniatures. I used the same colour schemes at their assigned units so that was an easy choice. With the completion of the Tharn Ravager Chieftains, I’ve now painted all the miniatures I own for Circle Orboros. Sadly this doesn’t actually add up to a legal force in the game but if I come back to this army then I would only need to pick up a few extra pieces.

Next on the painting table: Alexia, Mistress of the Witchfire.

  1. Hefty looking lads – nicely done mate 😊

    • Cheers! They are indeed big chaps; those are 40mm bases. Leaving aside their actual role in WarmaHordes, I reckon they’d make good barbarians in an RPG.
