I just noticed, whilst perusing the Maelstrom Games' site, that they had two rather interesting things available for preorder due 20th of August; Ur-Ghul and Medusae. I guess this means the rest of the things in the Court will follow shortly. Anyone excited? Strangely enough though, as I'm writing this there is no mention of the two new DE releases on GW's site.
I've seen a picture taken from a magazine so it might be in the next White Dwarf.
Too bad that the court isn't really interesting game wise as it is a sub-par squad for your Archon.
It's really too bad that you have to take atleast one of each in a squad. They'd probably get some use if you could take 5 Medusae in a venom, or 10 Lhameans, but as it is they're so mismatched that they'll likely never see a serious game.
The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed
I would like to get a Court of the Archon at some point but I agree in most games they aren't all that great. Although I think all games should be for fun and not taken too seriously each player should be playing to win. In a narrative campaign, themed game or Apoc game I could see myself fielding a Court of the Archon. Plus the pictures I've seen so far do look cool.
Once all of the court has been released, I could see myself aquiring a court. But prior to that, I'd doubt it. I've considered subbing out to play test them, to see how well they work. I think they would work good with the proper setup.....and delivery.
Well, now we know what that weird xeno skull on the Hekatrix's trophy rack is - an Ur-Ghul skull. The blisters look like they only hold one model each, so building an entire Court of the Archon unit could be expensive. I don't thnk many people will bother considering that the unit is of questionable utility. People have complained about the cost of Beastmaster units, and they are very playable, so I doubt that thesemodels will have as many takers. The Medusae looks very cool, undeniably.
