February’s Heroes Drop Unboxed

For February's Heroes Box we have focused on the incredible Lion Tower Miniatures, featuring the intrepid Barbarian miniatures from their Wrathborn universe, accompanied by his loyal Owl pet that can always be found nearby as his travels over vast lands.

To display our Barbarian we picked the breathtaking Celtic Ruins base from Alien Lab Creator, which is the ideal platform for this stoic and deadly warrior. Finally, we included a trio of paints from The Foundry Paint System. This is a base, shade and highlight trio and we picked the South American Flesh trio to give our Barbarian a sun-kissed skin colour to celebrate his wandering nature.

The Heroes Drop has now become the Villains Drop, which you can learn more about here.

The Intrepid Barbarian – Lion Tower Miniatures

the barbarian lion tower miniatures asset drop heroes
The Barbarian Miniature by Lion Tower Miniatures, £10.00 with his Owl Pet, £5.00, in the same packaging.

The Barbarian miniature from Lion Tower Miniatures is a stunning model; from the intense detail in the casting to the emotive and powerful pose, we just knew this was the hero we had to feature in our monthly box! We also paired him with the Owl Pet miniature in honour of a Barbarian's wandering nature and free spirit. Below you can learn a little more about the Wrathborn universe our Barbarian hails from, taken directly off the Lion Tower website:

"Wrathborn is a fun fast paced skirmish game with dynamic combat and activations. Set in the dark and mysterious world of Juttergard, Wrathborn has a heavy Dark Age feel to it with a nice slice of High Fantasy.

Wrathborn is the brainchild of Lion Tower Miniatures’ resident game designer Rik Eddon.  Rik has been painstakingly developing the game, it’s background and lore over the last 6 years (and is very pleased to finally see it all coming to fruit).  The miniatures have been sculpted by owner and sculptor Dan Kelly, following the same design ethos behind our RPG miniatures range.

Wrathborn will feature four starting factions; The Norndrassel; The Children of Sha; The Kingdoms of Aner’a; and the Jade Empire. Each faction has its own uniquely identifiable aesthetic, feel and play style and we have plans to add many more as the story and game develops with time."

Celtic Ruins Base and Owl Pet

Celtic Ruins 50mm Base by Alien Labs and the Owl Pet from Lion Tower Miniatures, Full RRP. £9.30

Alien Lab Creator produces some incredible scenic bases and as soon as we saw the Celtic Ruins base, we knew it would be perfect for our Barbarian miniature. It is the ideal setting for a warrior to be wandering through in a fantasy land ravaged by war, leaving ruins of past kings all over the land. You can also see the highly details Owl miniatures from Lion Tower perched on a branch that wedges perfectly between the old stone head and shoulder armour to create a seamless diorama!

A Trio of Foundry Paints

A trio of stone paints from Reaper: Shadowed Stone, Stone Grey and Weathered Stone.
Full RRP £7.80

Finally, you can see the trio of tanned flesh paints from Foundry, which work really well together to create a skin effect fit for Conan! The darker base is the shadow, and is applied first, followed by the mid tone and a highlight colour for that extra bit of pop on our Barbarian's muscles.
