Conan: Rise of Monsters by Pulposaurus Entertainment!

Posted on August 4, 2015 by

Know, O Prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an age of swords and sorcery. An age of war. An age of blood and thunder.

An age of…monsters!

Conan: Rise of Monsters is an epic fantasy miniature wargame with pre-painted plastic figures. It was created and designed by four veteran designers of the table-top industry, and lavishly illustrated by some of the industry’s top artists such as Victor Moreno and Adrian Smith.

Conan: Rise of Monsters draws on Robert E Howard’s original Conan stories as well as the Marvel and Dark Horse Comics adaptations to tell a brand new story at the zenith of King Conan’s reign.

Little Nightmares – Privateer Press

With their breakout hit Monsterpocalypse and their solid Warmachine and Hordes skirmish-level combat lines, Privateer Press is well-situated to be a force in the industry for years to come.

The Warmachine and Hordes product lines mesh well with dark fantasy, as they have a number of factions tailor-made for people of such inclinations. A perfect example is the Gorax, a light warbeast from the Circle Orboros faction in Hordes. The Gorax, looking very troll-like – or even like an Oni from Oriental mythology – strains at the chain that holds him to a large boulder. The pose is interesting and well-executed, and the figure’s rippling musculature and tufts of scraggly hair combine to give this model a ton of character. At a $17 MSRP, this model is a smidge pricey, but a first-class sculpt never the less.
