Dungeon Saga Boss: Lich Lord Master Necromancer

The Lich Lord is natural progression of the master necromancer into unlife.  He is able to control a vast range of undead and also commands impressive magical attacks.  He is weak in combat so heroes will need to fight through his minions to get into contact with him.

Dungeon Saga Boss: King of the Dead

Once the mightiest King in the lands of Mantica, this lord would not let death separate him from his power.  Now he controls a horde of undead creeping across the land but if it comes to it he truly is a terror on his own in combat. The King of the Dead is extremely tough to wound and will probably require Epic heroes with an array of skills to beat in combat but not all quests require you to beat the villian.  Sometimes you just have to get past him to be successful.

Dungeon Saga Boss: Bone Giant

Rarely does a necromancer have the power to raise a giant's remains to the unlife but when they do it is an incredibly dangerous weapon to use against his enemies.  A band of heroes will need a cunning plan if confronted with a Bone Giant.

Impact! Miniatures Brings Classic Rolljordan Back to the Pitch

Impact! Miniatures is running a kickstarter to get two classic Roll Jordan Fantasy Football Teams converted to their Trollcast Resin.  The first team is the Frog man team whose metal versions I am using in the league right now.  There are some new blitzer models to better mark them as different from the line and and sideline figures.  The second is the Silvania Elf team which look like lovely models but are a little more sexy than I would like in my fantasy football teams.  I have noted in the past it is very hard to find a reasonably clad and styled female team.  Base teams are a very reasonable 50 for full rosters with big guys (or gals).  Sideline/star packs are like 24 for those 8 models.  Might get a Frog sideline pack myself, since I do like my frog models.

The Hollow

Once a master Sorcerer, the Hollow is now barely a shadow.  By the time many see him, they are in heart of his power suffering from his sorcery.  Those that survive long enough to attack back often find their blades almost slipping through him as he disappears only to appear again a few feet away laughing at their pitiful struggles.

Naratekh Mummified Sword Master

Once the sword master to a mighty king, Naratekh followed his master in death when he failed to defend him from an unknown assassin.  Why he walks the crypts of Mantica still is unknown.  Maybe his failure fuels his unlife or he is cursed to defend the graves of those he failed to protect in life.  Very dangerous at close quarters, wise heroes will avoid contact if possible.

The Shadow Hunter: Dungeon Saga Undead Boss

The Shadow Hunter is hunting for souls.   It especially craves those of spell casters.  Some scholars believe that this tortured soul was once a honorable Witch Hunter whose continued existence is the result of a curse during his final failed mission.  Whether the Shadow Hunter consumes the captured souls of those he slays, or takes them to a higher power is a mystery to even the most learned men of Mantica.

Dungeon Saga: Flesh Golem Boss

Occasionally a Necromancer with create a Flesh Golem to act as some additional muscle.  More intelligent than Zombies, they can be given basic commands and operate at great distances without oversight.  This frees up the Necromancer's concentration to control more of the lesser minions.

Albress Necromantic Apprentice

After years as a failed Court Magician, Albress felt his mortality creeping up on him.  Finally willing to make deals with Darker Powers, Albress pledged his services to a master of Necromancy for a chance at learning magic to extend his own existence.  While no one would consider Albress dangerous, his spells allow him to get a little more out of his masters minions.
