A journey of discovery…

Hot off the sculpting table – the Ignis Tribe

The Ignis tribes are found living on or close to lava flats – sometimes even within the vicinity of volcanic activity. They use this terrain to separate themselves from other tribes, preferring to keep to themselves. Any incursions into their lands though are dealt with swiftly and harshly. Ignis tribes are covered in a thick, leathery skin, that takes on the appearance of molten rock. Cracks in this surface act as natural vents, allowing the build up of pressure and heat taken in from their surroundings, to be released. As such, these areas glow boldly with reds, yellows and oranges, warning predators and enemies that this tribe is not to be trifled with.

All Ignis tribes carry polished, obsidian blades, fashioned by themselves utilising the resources scattered throughout their lands. They wield these blades with an intimidating skill and prowess. Ignis tribes who rarely used to leave their lands have begun to conduct revenge and warning raids on adjacent lands. Punishment for the repeated incursions into their territory.

Almost all the Ignis tribes that Darwin has witnessed have a blackish body, with the glowing reds, oranges and yellows shining through. Their skin ranges from reds, to oranges and yellows – sometimes even black. But more recently, he has discovered a tribe that takes on the colours of gemstones found in amongst the lava chutes the Ignis sometimes use to travel.

So without further ado, I proudly introduce the sixth tribe in the Rise of the Occulites miniatures range, sculpted by the ever-talented Bob Olley – the Ignis tribe!

These figures have been moved up the release schedule and will be available at the same time as the Nimbus – a late October release.

Any questions, feedback or comments are greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Ben.
