VNT42 Lord Ruza on Great Wyvern Kildane and also on Horse

“I would not have thought it possible but then none of us had ever seen a warlord like Ruza before. He had united the northern tribes with a sword dripping with our blood and though we offered him the choice of our finest steeds he refused. To him it was majesty more than anything which mattered. Power was firstly in the eye of the beholder and to look upon him in battle was to bring not only fear but abject terror. To win the battle before a blow was struck that was what our lord wanted. To achieve this he lured the Wyvern Kildane from its lofty perch among the peaks with raiding parties of our warriors. The beast ate hundreds of our number as our lord learned its ways and its nature. When the time came he captured it. I swear none of us know how but in word and deed the wyvern knelt and allowed itself to be climbed and then saddled. 

Now we march behind Ruza and the Orcs flee and the Dwarves piss themselves. Our lord makes the kill and then his beast consumes it. A partnership which suits them and us too. We are rich with the plunder of a dozen peoples!” - Caltus Mac Drow.

VNT42 Lord Ruza with Lance on great Wyvern Kildane: This monster with rider contains one high quality grey tone resin very large monster kit in 28mm scale (five parts being body, head, left wing, right wing & base) as well as a metal rider (Ruza, a Chaotic allied Human in elaborate plate armour) with a two piece saddle as well as a lance tip and lance end cap in metal. Also supplied is a length of brass rod for the shaft of the lance and two lengths of brass chain to allow Lord Ruza to control Kildane.

When built this winged monster with its rider stands at 160mm tall with a wingspan of 200mm . The Wyvern (which is VNT33 Kildane) is supplied in five parts with an integral base making it super easy to assemble and rugged for wargame use. The head is outfitted with harness and mount points for chain. A great centre piece for your 28mm high fantasy army. 

A Monster Suitable for any fantasy wargame system. 

By popular request there is a less grand version of Lord Ruza which is the same rider but mounted on an armoured horse with a shorter lance.  This is code VNT42A and has also been restored to the range on the website.  A fine general for your force.
