Relicblade: Berserker Pig, Pig Warlord and Verminmouth

The Berserker Pig is the first of the individual Adversary models from the latest Relicblade Kickstarter. As a character he’s existed for a long time, but this is his first time getting a model. While I was painting one pig, I figured I’d do a few others.

Berserker Pig

Like Cato, I felt like doing more blue. So the Berserker got blue accents. I’ve tried doing distinct accent colors for the pigs to help tell them apart on the tabletop, although these newer models also have more distinctive poses than the original set.

Pig Warlord

Branching out from accent colors, the Warlord gets gray skin. He’s fills out a 30mm base, unlike the 25mm common to most Relicblade models. I guess you don’t get to be Warlord by being small.

Verminmouth

Verminmouth is the last of the pig sculpts. I really like how there are rats everywhere, including forming a loincloth.

Rat Swarm

In case there weren’t enough rats on Verminmouth, you can always summon the Rat Swarm. Dotting all the eyes was a pain, but worth it.

Relicblade: Bounty Hunter

The Bounty Hunter was one of the stretch goal individual models from the latest Relicblade Kickstarter. She continues my red hair obsession.

She’s a fun single-piece model. I’d think the eyepatch would mess with depth perception when sniping with the crossbow, but who am I to argue? In game, she can move dodge tokens between characters, handy if you’ve got a rogue that’s thirsty for them.

Relicblade: Adversary Starter

The other side of the two-player box for Relicblade is the Adversary. Specifically, pigmen, a take on the barbarian. The box includes two copies of three distinct sculpts, with enough weapons to make each one unique. To help keep track of them on the board, each one got a different color for their shoulder pads.

While I like the models well enough individually. I must admit the Adversary side of the two player starter has a lot less character than the Advocate. On the other hand, the Adversary has more models outside the two player starter to choose from, so maybe it evens out.
