Succumb to the Blood Frenzy of the Tribe of Um'Gra!
We are getting very close to unlocking the next Stretch Goal, but in the meantime, how about we get to know a little better one of the tribes already in the HATE core box? Meet the bloodlusting savages of the Um'Gra tribe!
As the world choked on pallid dust, and the moon burned bright with fire and death, the Varn strode across the world as titans. Each man an army unto himself, each woman an arsenal of sorcery and guile. They ruled over lesser men, those incompetent former custodians, and wrought order or chaos to sate their whim. There existed only the masters and the slaves.
In the pens, so too did hierarchies arise. It is man’s nature to build, to seek leadership, to bend knee. The most savage could rule for a time, often falling to the most intelligent, or treacherous. Yet, by strength or intellect, whether brute or plotter, a slave remained a slave, and all remained in shackles beneath the whip.
Yet the whip served indiscriminate justice, its judgment rendered by wanton mongrels. The overseers were those blind enough, or fool enough, to believe themselves the whip’s master. They too were but slaves.
All too often, the whip’s victims proved powerless. Impotent. Worthless. But the Varn do not bear the lash easily, and under duress, with passions inflamed, the blood of titans might manifest.
The Tribe of Um'Gra once ruled over all the others, though that time is now gone (but not forgotten). The men of the tribe are armies unto themselves. The women and powerful sorceresses and spiritual guides. They are reckless, and that is their strength (at the same time that it's their weakness).
In the battlefield, the Um'Gra tribe are masters of using Savagery to their advantage. They use it in all sorts of different ways to make different and devastating attacks. The Um'Gra must always strive to have more Hate accumulated during any battle they participate in. Having the most Hate allows them to unleash powerful effects!
Now let's take a closer look at the members of this tribe.
In order to help her tribe maintain their necessary lead in Hate during a battle, the Um'Gra Shaman's dark ritual generates an extra Hate whenever she KO's an opponent.
Finally, let's look at what this figures can look like when painted. These miniatures were painted by Angel Giraldez. As always, keep in mind that the figures will come unpainted.
Unleash your HATE!
