Im going to have a Warhammer 1st edition battle tomorrow based on the "Ziggurat of Doom" scenario.
Thought I would show off the figures today and introduce the forces that will be involved in the upcoming conflict.
Slann come in many colors, I chose to stick with the Kremlo lore, and paint them as the "BlueSpine" tribe.
Left to Right: Musician, Slavemaster, Kremlo, Warrior, Herald, Palace Guard Officer.
These are C-32 Slann from 1987.
Kremlo actually has a scenario in Citadel Compendium #1 "The Legend of Kremlo the Slann".
I think this might be the only scenario written for 1st edition, outside of the White Box and Forces of Fantasy.
Apparently, he was raised by humans and took up arms against his own species. Here in Moria, he has been forgiven of his past misdeeds and cant wait to show his loyalty to the Slann cause.
Than again, the "Ziggurat of Doom" scenario isnt that great either. But I will spruce it up, with more victory conditions, more forces, more objectives and random event cards.
They are basically D&D Bullywugs given an Aztec/Mayan theme. Still cool, just saying, GW didnt really do anything original here. Even the Mayan Aztec thing was big thing in D&D modules, such as in C-1 "Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan", which came out in 1980. I think Dweller of the Forbidden City was one too, I dont recall. I just remember the giant frog on the cover!
And here he is after summoning a Cockatrice. Chicken of Doom, as I like to call them.
The model itself is a Marauder MM44 cockatrice (possibly sculpted by Aly Morrisson, maybe Trish?)
Left to Right: Mad Furrikson, Balin Lord of Moria, Napper Grundin
Tomorrow night, or more likely on Friday, I will post the battle report and its wider implications in the scheme of my Moria Project. If you are a new reader of this blog, Im guessing you might have some questions... Slann in Moria? Balin is a Chaos Dwarf? Inner earth in Middle Earth? Dinosaurs under Khazad Dum? What is this madness? Theres no short answer Im afraid, you will have to read from the start...
So to old readers and new ones... Thanks for reading!
