For our complete review, be sure to scroll down and press play on the full video below.
The Beastclaw Raider are older models that were released in 2011. They have appeared on Spikeybits before in two painting and basing tutorials. The box comes with four Mournfangs which are $65 retail and the Stonehorn which is $58 retail. You save %30 with this box if you do plan on picking it up. The box contains seven sprues and have all the options to customize them as you want.
If you do plan to field Mournfang, we recommend having one musician and one bannermans in your unit. These units can be pricey yet you are fielding points and not having to pay for upgrades, so go all out.
The Fyreslayers Box Set is an amazing deal with 10 Vulkite Berzekers, Magmadroth with Auric Runefather, Auric Runesmiter, and Auric Runeson for $85 retail. If you were to buy these individually, it would total $145 retail. Right off the bat, you have a 40% savings with this Start Collecting Box. It comes with six sprues with the Magmadroth sprues containing the three characters that can either be mounted our run alongside on foot.
Their warscroll battalion has the Runesmiter targeting an enemy unit which allows friendly Fyreslayer units to move 4″ closer to the target. The only two caveats are that they cannot already be within 3″ of the selected unit and they must be closer to the target than they were when they started.
Harbingers of dark months and dead seasons, marauders who stalk through the frozen darkness, the ogor tribes of the Beastclaw Raiders are gargantuan creatures of strength and hunger. Unlike orruks or warriors of the Bloodbound they fight not for the thrill but for survival – battlefields are their hunting grounds, and when the foe lies cold and dead their bodies are harvested with a gluttonous fury, for it takes a truly staggering amount of meat to satisfy these massive, ravenous raiders. Constantly on the move, their nomadic way leaves behind naught but a wasteland of cracked ice and frozen bones – and their appetites drive them to every corner of every mortal realm.

Charging into battle without hesitation, screaming war cries at a cowering foe while hefting enormous war-axes, the Fyreslayers are the descendants of the shattered warrior god Grimnir. They bear runes of shining ur-gold hammered into their flesh – ur-gold which, they believe, contains the very essence of Grimnir himself, giving the incredible strength for which they are notorious. Their fury in combat and unbreakable oaths are legend, and their axes are feared – berserk warriors born for war, the Fyreslayers burn with Grimnir’s fury!

Mortals still indulge their desire and obsessions beyond all sense of decency, and glory in forbidden excess – and while such horrors persist, so too will the followers of Slaanesh.
