The Abyssal Gates open…

Well, they may have gone insane in the process and are now sporting all manner of wild and wacky headgear but the guys from Golem have been splashing the paint around and, hands hurting (ever tried wielding a paintbrush covered in thorns? Darn that dark magic), have produced some fantastic paintjobs for our excellent Abyssal Dwarf miniatures! And what better way to start the show than with the staple unit in any Abyssal Dwarf Army; the Black Souls!

Black Soul Regiment Angle

These guys are the mainstay of any Abyssal Dwarf army; more numerous that their Immortal Guard brethren, and better armoured that the Decimators, whose use of the lethal blunderbuss restrict the amount of armour they can carry.

Black Souls

The Black Souls regiment are a hybrid of the Dwarf plastic ironclads and the Abyssal Dwarf conversion kit, with enough metal pieces to give each Abyssal Dwarf different headgear (for those of you who are a stickler for variety) as well as new weapons, shield and command parts. Bob has truly conveyed the mad, chaotic nature of the Abyss in this new kit, even down to the Dwarf Dog, which gets itself a brand new Abyssal head!

Now available to pre-order as a separate kit with a load more fancy pictures to look at here, the Black Souls will be released on the 25th February. We understand that you might not be able to wait that long however, and there are 40 Black Soul warriors (either 2 regiments or an entire Horde if you play Kings of War like a man!) to be had in Gorgoth’s Legion of Terror which will ship earlier!

Let us know what you think below!

  1. These look brilliant – the wealth of different headgear designs makes them look crazy, and really helps them stand out from the vanilla dwarfs.

  2. They look excellent, can’t wait to crush a few Abyssal Dwarf armies!

    Golem are getting better at their paint jobs too.

  3. amazing! will there be any ‘leftovers’ to convert normal dwarves left over (got 90 from mhorgoths revenge boxes) or will these conversion kits be available individually?

    Even if they are not I should be able to spread the love a bit.

    Good Job mantic, keep it up!

  4. They look much better than the dwarfs.
    More variety is better for the look of a regiment.

  5. The simple dwarfs are clones of each other for my eyes. But these miniatures are excellent. Congratulation!

  6. Wow! I was not a fan of the wacky headgear before, but as a unit it looks awesome!

  7. Thier hats are huge! Awesome work, glad I pre-ordered these last month.

  8. Wow, really awesome looking miniatures. In particular, I like the real variety between each of the members of the unit. Good work Mantic.

  9. These are pretty unique and original ! I like how the weapons look. Some hats are cool (the eye helmet !) others are just too weird (the crazy hat-face on the second picture).

    Thus, I was looking for my favorite headgear (that one > http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/5883/sanstitretb.jpg) and I did not see it ! What happened to it ?

    Ho, and can you say how many head options will be available ?

  10. Those really look fabulous. More head variety is the key to making a unit stand out and look like there’s more mini styles. I hope this is a trend we see on future releases.

  11. They are actually quite scary !!! Well done!
