Lesser Warlock Zaadesh

Now that the kickstarter lesser warcasters are out and starting to see some table time (at least 3 of them were on the table during a 12 person local tourney last weekend), we've got the rules for the new lesser warlocks coming out in the next book. I'm not going to be talking about all three of them, though they all seem at least interesting. The one I'm going to talk about is obviously the Skorne lesser, Tyrant Zaadesh.

Compared to the other two he seems really straight-forward. nothing real crazy in his abilities or spells. But also no limitations like the others (including the beast mistress). all of them have to take lights (or lessers for legion), where Zaadesh has no such restrictions. you could give him character heavies if you wanted to. I don't think I want to, but the option is there.

Using the Despoiler

It's been a long time in coming, but we're finally seeing the last few models from Gargantuans on the tables. Today we'll look at Skorne's latest model, the Despoiler.

The Despoiler was one of the big surprises in Gargantuans. For many releases, we pretty much know what all is in a book before the book hits the shelves, but for Gargantuans PP did a good job of keeping a few nice pieces hidden until the book made its way to stores. Adding to the surprise, Despoiler was the only non-warlock character in the entire book. The biggest surprise with Despoiler, in my opinion, is how much it got people talking about Mordikaar.
