Jonathan here, with my product review of the new Crimson Court expansion!
Games Workshop was kind enough to send me a copy of this product to review, so here we go!
In this review I will be covering my thoughts on the physical contents of the box, and my general opinion of this product. For more in depth tactical thoughts and advice on how to play the warband, or a tactical review of the universals, check out the more game-play oriented card and warband reviews here:
Who are the Crimson Court?
In the lore of Warhammer Underworlds Direchasm, the Crimson court are a band of bloodthirsty vampires known as Soulblight Gravelords. Led by Prince Duvalle, they have entered the Direchasm for the thrill and delicious spoils of the hunt! Each member of the vampire coterie shows off different skills, but they all share a thirst for blood and terrible savagery when they lack sustenance.
You can see the lore details for the warband on the included card:
What Comes In The Box?
The warband box contains:
- The miniatures for the warband’s 4 fighters
- A page of instructions on how to put them together
- 6 fighter cards
- 32 faction cards
- The above lore card
- 30 universal cards
Here are some pictures of the sprues for these miniatures. The plastic is a dark red color, the same color as the Garrek’s Reavers miniatures.
I was actually surprised at the detail of this warband’s miniatures as I assembled them. Prince Duvalle was made up of 10 separate pieces, which may be some kind of record for a push fit model! Overall they were fairly straightforward to assemble, and I didn’t use any glue on them, as they snapped together quite well. The instructions were very clear when i come to putting the models together, but I would recommend being careful with some of the longer, thinner pieces like Gorath’s staff or Vellas’ hair, as I think they could bend or break with the wrong bump.
Here are the assembly instructions for these miniatures:
Here are my completed miniatures!
Overall I think the Crimson Court is a great expansion for Warhammer Underworlds: Direchasm.
Gameplay wise, the warband has great stats and have a veritable toolbox of keywords and special rules so that they can play a wide variety of builds and playstyles. Despite being yet another 4 fighter warband for the Direchasm season, they seem quite different from the others so far, and card art (check out our warband review to see those) and miniatures look great.
Thanks for Reading!
