Want: FW Chaos Sorcerer and Spawn

I don't experience ForgeWorld lust.... often. Sayl the Faithless and Nightmaw on the other hand is 90% ooooooh and 10% whuuu? Slap Ahriman's backpack on this guy and he would be an amazing CSM Sorcerer. That left arm though is a mystery. Check out the FW page I linked for closeups. Never have I seen such a "I rolled some green stuff and wrapped it around a staff" sculpt at FW. I almost expected to see fingerprints left in putty. So if I get this guy I might chop off the staff and replace it with something better. Maybe a Kromlech Technomage staff.

Is $35 a little steep for this model? Maybe, considering I still have quite enough Chaos Sorcerers to last me a while.

Plague Toads as spawn though? That would make me really happy like.

  1. YES! I love that Sayl model, aside from the plain tentacle. I could take or leave Nightmaw, and love the toads; indeed would make great spawn.

  2. That spawn is so cool, and disturbing.

  3. I have to respectively disagree. I think the tentacle is kind of cool. Yes, upon first glance, it does look like someone rolled up some GS, however upon closer inspection, I noticed small delineations scultped into it, and it looks somewhat natural. It almost looks as there is muscle underneath the skin of the tentacle. http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Images/Product/AlternativeFW/xlarge/salydtl4.jpg
    In paticular, look at part that is wrapped around 2nd up from the bottom, and you can see what I am talking about. This is why FW stuff is decent, tiny details and excellent sculpting. Besides, Tzeentch is the Lord of Change...so not every marine will have normal limbs.
