WHQ: Silver Tower – Branchwych & Bittergrub

Cranked out another Silver Tower character. Oddly, this is the second character I’ve painted for this game yet all of the actual Silver Tower minis are still on their sprues. I’ve got a Dreadball and a Blood Bowl team to knock out, then I’ll dive in and hit the actual Silver Tower minis.

Anyway, this game has a real dearth of female characters, so was glad to hear this Sylvaneth character was recently included in the app. I prefer analog over digital, so looked to see if she was also included in the recent card pack. She isn’t….too recent. The plan was to get an image of a Branchwych and crop it into a card template. Until I saw the following image…

What’s that…? The Bittergrub not riding on her shoulder? This could be a duo like the Warpriest and Gryph-hound? Both of the kids could use characters with ‘pets’? Hmmm…

So, I went into assembling the model with the idea that I may need to green stuff some gap in her back where the grub would be glued on…there’s no such space. You just glue it on…or not! So, it was easy to find a good sized rock to have the Bittergrub scuttling over. And here we go…The Branchwych and Bittergrub enter the Silver Tower…

These images came out a bit more dull than I had expected. It’s hard to tell, but after sealing the models, I went back over the scythe end with gloss so it’s has a neat shiny look in person.

Well, being two models now the character needs a few new rules, so I’ve cooked up the following looking at the orginal Branchwych Silver Tower character, her Age of Sigmar Warscroll, and the Silver Tower Warpriest. I’ve reduced her stats, but gave her a weak area attack to reflect her more wizardly nature…using a spell she has in Age of Sigmar.

      Thanks! I have received very positive feedback on this build from forums and from one of the Silver Tower designers themselves. I feel great about her rules and is probably my favorite custom hero I’ve built. Enjoy!
