Berserking Slayers & Slaying Berserkers


Two weeks back my order from the Wayland Games finally arrived... A box of Dwarven Berserkers from the game "Warthrone" by Avatars of War!

They are the first multi-part plastic miniature regiment box from Avatars of War who have previously only sold single hero miniatures. Absolutely love the cast here! Quality is very similar to Games Workshop but the pieces seem to fit together even better than GW's bits. There are several head(beard), hand and axe options, as well as tons of accessory to personalize the unit: severed orc and giant heads, coins, chains, beer mugs, skulls...
And its 20 models for roughly 30€, an amazing deal!

The unit standard/flag is VERY large and cumbersome, but luckily the dragon bits can be left out to have only the cool marble slayer statue hanging there with a grudge book or some severed heads :)

Some might say the axes are also too large and "cartoony", but I honestly like that. Dwarf Slayers are generally quite silly figures, after all, so why shouldn't their weapons be reflecting that, too! Otherwise their scale is the same as GW's Dwarf models, as the photo in the end undeniably proves.

Already painted two and assembled two more to be ready for painting. Seems like I'll have the unit ready in no-time :P they are very enjoyable models to paint and the level of detail is stunning! Every single one of them would pass as a Dragonslayer Hero, so glorious individuals they simply are.

And most important of all... their beards are very long and extra bushy!
