Here's the first cool thing about these two new miniatures: they're both large uncommons.
The Troll Slasher, as you can tell from the photo, is a no-nonsense troll, something you've been waiting to see again since Harbinger. The Slasher is a bit tougher than the Harbinger Troll. It also has an ability called Bloodthirsty that makes it play differently from other creatures, but it's not Difficult, so it's easier to use in Chaotic Evil warbands than the Harbinger Troll was.
The Blackscale Lizardfolk is from Monster Manual III. Blackscales give the Lizard Folk their own ogre-sized champions. In the skirmish game, the Blackscale Lizardfolk fights for both Chaotic Evil and Chaotic Good and can best be disposed alongside dragons, because it is immune to dragon breath weapons.
Here's the best cool thing about these two new miniatures: there are six other large uncommons in the set, so with average luck you'll get a large uncommon in every booster box.
Next week: Mages.
