Imbued with great necromantic powers, she ruthlessly lords over necrocyber zombies who serve as bodyguards and cannon fodder for the Iron Empire (our Prussian style army).
THE IRON EMPIRE (IE) The Iron Empire is made up of exiled people that have somehow stumbled upon necromantic knowledge from alien pharaonic gods. They combine Prussian and Germanic influences with some kind of Aegyptian cyber necromancy that allow them to raise the dead and create bio-mechanical aberrations.
I. . . Confess I may be somewhat biased here. As in, I am currently sculpting a pair of Ecclesiarchal servitors just to follow her around. Yes, I like this mini that much. . .
However; The review. . .
Nepharya was an immediately eyecatching design, and the sculpting and casting have lived up to the initial KS concept; This is an impressive mini, which combines real table-top presence (strong pose, twice the height of standard troops) And good balance of detail - Fine throughout, even by RH's standards - Without being 'fussy' or overloading the model.
Past experiences with W101 had me concerned about possible bubbles or miscasting on the mechanical details of this mini. But the castings that arrived are crisp and fine, with minimal flash, and the only remedial work necessary was a small amount of filling on a cable and minor misalignment on two of the sevo-arms. Which would be impressive on a far less complex resin (speaking of complex; Download. The. Instructions.)
Mine is being slightly modified for service as a Tech-Priestess for use with my Sororitas and Inquisition, and I suspect I'm not alone; However I can also see Nepharya fitting in to many Dark Eldar armies. 'Counting as' one of the more Frankensteinian characters in Malifaux or Wrath of Kings. Playing a similar role in various Steampunk games, or even being a unique steampunk Necrarch in a Vampire Counts army.
And I suspect many Cryx players have just found their army's new commander.
