Although I’m not a fan of the recent slew of special characters, and their attendant power creep, there’s no good reason not to own the Skulltaker model. OK, so you’ll probably never field him as a standard herald on foot, and you’ve got to ask why they didn’t put him on a Juggernaut, but he’s a joy to paint.
I was quite pleased with how the flaming skull came out. Especially when you consider I did not spend much time on this model at all. Indeed he was painted along with 20 Bloodletters in less than a day.
