At the same time as I ordered my Cryptborn Nightmares team for Rumbleslam, I also bought this team - the Twisted Shadows. What particularly drew me to this team were the two Witch Elves. When it comes to fantasy I have a particular fondness for Dark Elves. Way back when I played Warhammer regularly my two biggest armies were Vampire Counts (obviously!) and Dark Elves. Of all of the Dark Elf units, the Witch Elves were my favourite. Those ladies were vicious!
The Twisted Shadows team is agile,
fast, hard-hitting, and very tough to face. But they're also extremely
weak when punched back, so watch out! Twisted players of Gomorrah will
love a little extra power in their teams.
Dark Elf Brawlers and Dark Elf Grapplers can take a bit more punishment,
and are very good at their respective roles. Their Art of Seduction
ability turns an already good attack into an even better one by
incapacitating the opponent's ability to defend properly.
Finally, the massive Gorgons are out and out damage dealers. Their
special abilities are very powerful, but its their grapples and Crowd
Pleasers that really make them a mainstay in any Gomorrah team.
“Comet is an enigma wrapped in mystery and perversion. Known by many as
the strangest wrestler to enter the ring, this painted elf has exhibited
some very strange tendencies over the years. Whether it is admiring
himself in the ring, or tracing out the blackened lines of his
skin-tight suit, he has surprised and chilled many a wrestler and
viewer. In interviews, he has shown a definite lack of personal space
and social norms. His face is meticulously painted each day, and the
ritual of brushing his hair sixteen times before a match is never
missed. Comet seems to love his body and appearance more than anything,
and should his opponent smear his paint, they had better be ready for
Wow! Just look at that stat card. Seriously. Umm... I don't know what else to say. So. Much. Gold. Comet is a great Superstar for... well... anyone really. Seriously. Wow!
When is a
Dark Elf better than a Dark Elf? When she's Phage. Increasing on a Dark
Elf's already decent stat line, Phage really does have it all. With
great attacks on top, she's a formidable opponent. That said, she costs a
lot of Dosh! If you fancy adding her to a Gomorrah team, she pairs
perfectly with the Twisted Shadows, who make her even more mobile!
I must admit that I just fell in love with the three Witch Elf figures for this team. 😍 They are as gorgeous as they are deadly. The other team members aren't bad either and I'm very much looking forward to seeing how they perform in the ring. There are a lot of parts to the Gorgon, but she went together very well without the need of any drilling and pinning. When I glued the tails onto the two Shadowlings I had to slightly widen and lengthen the holes for them to slot into but that was a simple job. Note that as with all of my Rumbleslam figures, I have glued them to MDF bases instead of the clear plastic bases that they are supplied with. And in case you're wondering, all of their clothing items were painted with Humbrol Gloss Black acrylic paint.
The Twisted Shadows Team costs £22.00 from the TT Combat webstore and Comet and Phage costs £7.00 each.
