In every generation there is one brave Polish man who wields the lightning in the mankind's darkest hour. He lifts up the runic axe, older than the people of this land and the power of the ancient deity starts coursing through his veins. Old gods still watch over their children and stand vigilant when tides of evil rise.

Current wielder of Perun's power is a student from Warsaw whose grandfather and great great grandfather used to be Lightning Lords years ago. Stanislaw Starzynski became marked with the lightning rune when he confronted Forgotten minions sent to recover Szczerbiec, the coronation sword of Polish kings.

He will be the first-direct release that will not see the retail.

Will he go head-to-head with Hellsmith? I hope so...

Oh, and does he have a faction?

Neat sculpt. He will be fun to paint.

But I have to ask...because it might just be the angle of the picture or the lighting or some lingering insecurities on my part, but, did you intend for him to be hung like a horse to represent Poland or something? He looks more "heroic" in that regard than Captain Hardon, I mean Hadron :)

That's just his cup. It's larger than normal for the extra protection, but also to prevent chafing.

Yeah, he needs to worry about that because with any topical cream he'd become...(wait for it)...

GREASED LIGHTNING! :D

But, seriously, that is a great concept for a really iconic figure. Perun is even cooler than Thor in mythology, kind of like a combination of Zeus, Thor and Hephaestus, but he vanquished evil spirits too.

Now is there any chance we're going to get a really cool eagle familiar with him in the box? That would be very appropriate from the myths.

Chris, your concern with Perun's private godly parts concerns me in return!
I don't know what to say ;)

Perun will not have any subfaction. He will be just a Hero. Level 2. So far his rules look very straight forwards. Fry them with the lightning, call a storm or two, then bludgeon them with the stone axe.

Yup, Hellsmith vs. Perun will be epic!
Yes, it's JvS again on sculpting. Some really great pieces from here coming up soon!
