Avatars Of War Corruptors Of Apocalypse - Out Of The Box

Ah, new month, new toys. Today I'm doing one of my quick out-of-the-box reviews of the Avatars Of War Corrupters of Apocalypse. As always this is simply a series of photos of the basic parts that come with a set of miniatures - the kind of thing I would find useful if I was thinking of buying something, particularly if I was thinking of easy conversions. And that happens to be exactly what I'll be doing with this lot over the next week or so, as I turn them into my version of Plague Marines. Overall I'd say this was a pretty good quality set. It's the first time I've seen 'warcast' up close and it seems to be reasonable: not the best resin, certainly not the worst. There are a few slightly dodgy areas of casting, although nothing like finecast miscasts. The detail is generally crisp and pleasing and these are suitably characterful models. For a Warriors Of Chaos WFB army these would be absolutely brilliant. I, of course, will be slightly converting them 'John Blanche' style into the 40k universe.

  1. They do look very nice, I've been considering several of their regiments and characters for a while now...

    But I'm behaving...

    Far too many unpainted miniatures in my collection as it is...

    *sigh*.

    1. Me too... but I'm a serial misbehaver!

  2. Thanks for the review, I am tempted. It's a shame the head is attached to the torso and looks difficult to modify. Sometimes a slight turn of the head to one side can make a huge difference to the pose. Do you think a few would be easy to do this?

    1. Perhaps, but in general the heads have details that spread onto the bodies. I've chopped a couple off and replaced them with GW marine heads and that was quite straightforward. I think with care some reposing would be possible.
