So I have wanted to fold in Clawed Fiends into my army for a while now, before the points reduction. Now I can field even more of them.
But, well, I hate the model. Like, really hate the model. And I am not a fan of the common Crypt Horror substitution either. Both seem more "smash" than "shred".
Honestly, Khmerae (sp) have always done a better job for me of invoking that whirlwind of teeth and claws vibe. But I dont want to use those, in case I also want to field them (I like those models).
Has anyone got any alternatives? No need for it to be GW models (I dont play tournaments or anything, just friendlies with my buddies), but it does need to be UK or Europe based.
On the GW front, I was surprised to see that I actually like the look of AoS Yetis. More spindly and with bigger claws than the brutes we have. I also liked the sabertooth models, but they are finecast and also out of stock (and with a small model count).
