The Iguan Assassin is a solo character themed to go with the Wretched Hive. He’s also the final model I needed to have the entire Relicblade line painted.
He also gets a different red skin. The purple shoulder piece and bracer match the purple on my Mangrove Basilisk, as the Iguans would surely use Basilisk hide to produce armor (they’re Armor 3 after all!)
I’m looking forward to the next Relicblade Kickstarter, so I’ll have more models to paint. Not that I have any particular shortage from other vendors.
Many Relicblade scenarios involve the use of objectives, usually described as braziers, that need to be activated (lit) by the players. Much like the Pack Yak, Relicblade makes a set of appropriate markers available for sale.
The set contains three braziers, and three removable flames. Each one is a unique sculpt. Unlike the metal miniatures that make up the rest of the Relicblade line, these are in a white resin.
For such a simple model, there’s quite a bit of character to them. There are the skulls of course, but also cracking and dancing flames. The separate flame pieces have a rounded edge that makes them easy to put on without slipping around.
The Deep is a mini-faction for Relicblade, made up of two models and an eight-card pack, each sold separately. Uncommonly for Relicblade they come on 30mm bases.
The Eel Sorcerer has a snake and a lamp, so you know he’s serious. Unlike most other Wizard characters he only has 4 AD, but he has a useful dagger and ranged spell attack, so doesn’t necessarily need a bunch of 2-AD upgrade spells.
The Shark Warrior, on the other hand, just has blades. Nasty nasty blades. As a Knight, he gets access to cool upgrades like Sword Master and Writ of Justice.
