The Dark Age of Sigmar - The Court of Spades, Part 1

The Mordants of Hunger Woods are wretched creatures that dwell in the vast dark and twisted forests that surround Wortbad in the Harrowmark. The Kyng of Spades and his court are just as twisted as their home. In their madness they see themselves as a dynasty of  “The Blood Royale” - a warrior-king and his retinue.


The mad king of a hidden court; Mudshroud, The Kyng of Spades is an Abhorrant Ghoul King who sees the dark and twisted forest as his mighty castle and it's surrounding lands. His rotted retinue seen through his eyes are a band of mighty heroes and fair maidens, wise and just and pure of heart. The truth is dark and unpleasant: Mordgrave, The Quene of Spades is a Crypt Ghast Courtier in the tattered remains of a blue dress. Mossblade, The Knight of Spades is a Crypt Haunter Courtier with an animal skull in place of a horned a helmet.


This group is inspired by the cover of an 80s board games from Games Workshop, that some of you may remember:


There is still a lot of work to be done - mainly greenstuff tattered robes and the Kyng's bone crown....

  1. The reference to that old GW game is great! Oh the illusions of those poor wretches. Good use of the slaughterpriest model; you have done a nice job of distancing the Mordant from the Khorne model.

    1. Thanks Gregory! The Slaughterpriest was the one that came free with White Dwarf. I was going to use him for Necromunda but the #AoS28 bug hit me hard!

      I have done more work on these guys since this post - I will be posting an update with my progress tomorrow. 😊
