I Think I'm In Love

A while back, I talked about Avatars of War and the new Dwarf Berserkers that they have coming out. Well finally after a loooooooooooooong time waiting, they finally have them up for pre-order.

These models look fan-friggin-tastic. The detail on them is superb from the looks of it and I can't wait to get my grubby mitts on them.

The only bad thing is that they pre-orders don't ship until the end of May, and I really don't want to wait that long.

I don't know if I'll ever play my WHFB Dwarfs, but I think that these Berserkers will look great as Slayers. The best part is that for abolut $36  (€25) this is much cheaper than trying to get 20 slayers off of the GW site.

If you wanted to get a comparable unit from GW you'd spend $33 (about €22)  for the Command Squad, and $24.75 (about €17) each for three more packs of Slayers. Thats a total of $107.25 (about €74).

Plus, if you pre-order two of the boxes, shipping is free. I'm not sure what I would do with 40 of the dudes, but I wish I would have seen that before I had made my pre-order.

Anywho, take a look at this video that shows you what the sprue has to offer.


  1. Okay... I always wanted to play Dwarves in Warhammer Fantasy Battle. Now, I am doubly tempted, since these look exactly the way Slayers should, and current models by Games Workshop are... well. Apart from Long Drongs Slayer Pirates, of course.

  2. ST-
    Do you even PLAY dwarves?? (Of course, who am I to question buying cool models for armies you do not play..!)

    Glad I found your site. I will check out the blog.

  3. Marcin, I don't think the Dragon or Daemon Slayers look too bad, but yeah, the rest are pretty bad. Evn Long Drongs crew are looking their age.

    rowport, you caught me, I have a fully painted Dwarf army that I have played exactly once. But I love the minis and I love painting them. Maybe if/when they get a new book in 8th ed. I'll give it a whirl.
