Following our look at the plastic Revenants set for Oathmark, we’ve got some associated characters to have a peep at.
The first thing to point out is that these are 28mm resin sub-masters, not the final metal production figures, but we’d imagine those will be to the high-quality standard we’ve come to expect from North Star.
What we can do with these sub-masters is check how they stand up to the really excellent plastic Revenants – the short answer is very well indeed! They have the same armour style (knobbly nipple zones included), shield designs, and so on. In fact, it’s clear from areas like the heads that the plastics have been used as the starting point for these command figures. Some elements, such as the head on the champion with the huge mace, are an exact match for the plastics.
There are added extras to make these characters stand out on the tabletop though, from weapon types and equipment to design flourishes. Let’s take a closer look.
You know this is a leader – his foot’s on a rock. Only the mightiest of champions can find a rock, no matter where they are, to plant their sole on and ensure they look dramatic! The addition of a raggedy cloak and cool helm make this a fine-looking figure, yelling orders and he holds his axe aloft.
This might be the pick of the bunch with a fur-lined cloak and with a simple yet impactful pose that ensures he looks really mean and dangerous hefting that two-handed mace around. There’s a Game of Thrones White Walkers possibility coming to mind the more we look at these Revenants and that’s no bad thing.
The final model is a musician – an option that didn’t feature in the box set of plastics. Thankfully he’s beating a drum as opposed to blowing into a wind or brass instrument with his complete lack of breath (a curse of many undead ranges) and he’s a fairly traditional but decent looking option to finish off your unit.
A great addition to your army if you’re picking up a plastic Revenants set or two, these will be a fine finishing touch and should paint up really nicely.
