UPDATED: New Tomb King model pics - Sphinx, snakes, and silly skeletons oh my!

Woke up this morning... ate a big bowl of oatmeal... and came across these pictures of new Tomb King models on the Subject to Stupidity blog.

UPDATE: More and better pics here - thanks to My Dice Hate Me! for the link!

 





 

I assume we'll see an official announcement from GW soon with some better pictures and description but as a first peek into what's inside the new TK book... I am not sure if I am a fan? The snakemen seem pretty cool but I am not sure how they fit into the lore? The snake riders are just plain goofy but perhaps in a fun way? And the new "necrosphinx" looks justifiably bad ass but what does it look like without that time intensive 'eavy metal paint job (the skin)? 

Looking forward to seeing what comes out in the next few weeks. I have always toyed with the idea of having a TK army (using my VC skeletons not the abominations the TK call skeletons) and there are some interesting themes here to play with for sure. What do you think?

I REALLY like the models. I think they are all great, even the comical Snake surfers.

I like the models too. I am excited about starting this army.

I feel slightly jealous that they put out so many new units for TK and only one for O&G :(

Anyway, I think I like the new models although the snake riders are a bit naff. There are some more pics over at Warseer and I was just looking at them (tomb guard and some more necrosphynx thingie).

Wow, the sphinx is amazing. After O&G got the big spider and the HPA came out, I figured we were going to be seeing a lot more big monsters, this confirms the theory.

The more I see of the new models the more I like them. Still not sold on the big monsters though... as they seem quite static. I wish they had more movement but I guess for a bunch of undead dudes...
