Tom Meier's Zombie Dragon & More Pets For The Lichemaster
A Zombie Dragon appears on the blog.
The Lichemaster, Heinrich Kemmler, also makes his debut.
It is by his undead hand that he commands the Zombie Dragon.
As if the Dragon isnt enough to handle, the Lichemaster brings even more pets to maul his foes for the upcoming battles for Bree.
Look upon this 80s box artwork and despair from its pure awesomeness.
Go visit the internet archive Stuff of Legends for more info on Citadel dragons and anything else vintage Oldhammer: http://www.solegends.com/citadel/
Whatever his name was of old has been forgotten.
Feel the power!
In the far future, those silly humans will bottle the essence from the pools of his homeland and use it as "eau de toilet".
Sure , he's a 90s sculpt, but that dont make you a bad person.
(And yes, there is an 80s version of him that was made for the "module" Terror of the Lichemaster.
Which I would like to get at some point. But this one will do for now...
That module also had minis of the skeletal warlords Krell, Ranlac, and... Mikael Jacsen and his Zombie troup!
Oh, 80's Oldhammer and its wacky humor!)
For those who dont know or recall, Krell is the bound servant of the Lichemaster.
But in recent events here on this alternate Middle Earth, Krell is now serving the Queen of Carn-Dum, I wonder how that reunion with the Lichemaster will turn out?
And now it is clear what he went north to get... a new pet Dragon!
While he was there he found a Frost Beholder playing in the snow drifts and promptly ensorcelled it and sent it south to the war effort in the Shire.
Ahhh, so thats how that well travelled Beholder ended up back in the battle for Sarn Ford.
See this post for that battle: http://mars-miniatures.blogspot.com/2016/09/tales-from-beer-cart-part-6-sarn-ford.html
He is a three-headed canine which I am calling Kibbles.
Thats right... the dreaded creature known as Kibbles of Ered Mithrin!
Ered Mithrin is a mountain range far to the north of Erebor, the Lonely Mountain.
And it is home to many strange arctic fantasy creatures, like for example...
I somehow got a box of these GW Chaos hounds, which I didnt care for at first.
They have grown on me though.
Thats right... a War for Middle Earth!
Yeah, thats the ticket.
But first, Bree and its human defenders must die, then be reborn in Undeath... to grow the armies of the Lichemaster!
So there you have it folks, more devilishly cute pets for the dark powers.
Next up we have some more proper vintage Pre-Slotta Citadel figures.
Stay tuned for some 80s Citadel White Boxes, also known as Speciality Sets!
