The Dark Emissary

I'm a few days late with posting news on the new release on the blog - but things are pretty busy right now. There's only three weeks to go to GenCon and the amount of preparation still to do is frightening - we're very excited about showing off the new miniatures and previewing the game though.

Anyway - back to The Dark Emissary! Ali and I both really love this piece. It's from a Sam Wood concept and is yet another stunning sculpt from Yannick Hennebo - his eighth for the Limited Edition resin range (with more to come!). We wanted to have something really dark and brooding in the line - and this one has that in spades. It comes complete with two head and weapon variant parts - and I can't decide if I like the bare head or helmet best. I liked the non-helmet better when the sculpt came in. but now it's painted I think I like the helmet version better.

Available now in the Studio Store.

It's the biggest piece we've done so far too - towering over everything else - even Ruby. He's just over 60mm tall (without the base).


Lots of updates to come in the coming weeks - more concepts for the Strain first, then pictures of the sculpts - and finally the painted versions. We're really happy with how they are coming out and can't wait to share them with you.

Lovely miniature as always. Might have to see if I have enough penny's to stretch to him. Looking at the pictures I'm leaning towards the variant without the helmet though. Who did the paint job? Its lovely.

The miniatures is one of the most beautiful and characterful I have every seen!

Sorry if it is an obvious answer but what scale is the figure?

I have a mate who collects WHFB Chaos and I think it would make a great gift for him.

Happy Painting!

@ Allan and Carmen. Funnily enough it would fit very well with WHFB Chaos armies...

@Frontline Gamer - Ali painted it (as normal!).

Good day, I am wondering if the rider is separate from the steed. Please advise.

Great masterpiece as usual :)
