Great – or horrible – news depending upon how strong your stomach is, the Nightstalker pre-orders are now live on the Mantic website. This is one of the most anticipated Kings of War armies ever – and we’ll be delving deep into their background over the coming weeks.
However, for now, just know that these are tortured souls who have been torn from their physical existence, the Nightstalkers are nightmares made manifest. They claw their way back into the mortal world, desperate to find a way back to the lives they were denied through the pain of others.
The first wave of Nightstalker releases is due for release on February 11th and you can see all the details below. What’s more, if you pre-order the Mega Army from the Mantic website before February 11th, you’ll receive a FREE Mind Screech – just in case you want to give yourself even more nightmares. Pre-order here.
NIGHTSTALKER MEGA ARMY
When the power of the Abyss waxes strong, large forces of Nightstalkers tear their way into reality. Mewling, skittering hordes advance, led by ancient cyclopean beings from the darkest depths of existence. Survivors of such attacks are rare and all who do escape lose their minds and souls forever.
The Nightstalkers are the dreams, nightmares, fears, and horrors of mortals made manifest. Although their incursions into our realm are thankfully rare, the devastation caused by such events is absolute on both a physical and emotional level.
Standing over 7″ tall – the Shadowhulk is an imposing and iconic addition to the Nightstalker army. Titans of the ether, these former giant Cyclopes retain only a passing resemblance to their long forgotten mortal forms. Now, they are covered in weeping sores, extra mouths, wicked spines, and hands that have fused into fleshless lumps of solid bone.
Fiends prey on hatred and jealousy. Empowered by these powerful emotions, they are drawn to those who plot and scheme revenge while spinning webs of lies. They are terrifying, arachnid-like monsters with venomous fangs and a chitinous armour that reflects no light.
Also used as a Grunt in Vanguard, the Needlefangs can pour through keyholes and under doors as they flow towards their food. Needlefangs form a black tide of crawling, skittering, shapeless things and spiteful, hungry warp pixies.
