“Based on the "Chronicles of HATE" graphic novel by acclaimed artist Adrian Smith, HATE is a board game of brutal combat and conquest in a desolate world of savage warriors. Created by the same design team who brought you the Zombicide series, under the supervision of Eric Lang, HATE combines the gruesome artwork of Adrian Smith with exquisitely sculpted miniatures to immerse you in a universe of cruel survival by any means.”
I really like the very unique comic so I had to support the KS. Having to many other projects I just started now to paint some minis. Above is the main “hero” Worm and a Sarassa warrior plus some trees of the KS.
In HATEs background, Mother Earth is defiled and is bound beneath the ground; humanity falls from any grace it may have had. Men enslave other men, and a brutal Tyrant rules over many. Mother Earth's spirit engages Worm, the protagonist, who is tasked to free her or bring back her power somehow. The comic follows Worm, a creature “bred for meat,” who stops at nothing to free the Earth Mother by gaining help from unlikely allies and sorcery.
The Tribe of Sarassa
"Not all that grew still lived. The spreading rot bore many abominations, among them the Garric, those parodies of life. They consumed, grew, and survived, yet did not die, save by the blade or fire. They alone captured their stock still living and drank their souls. Insatiable. Mindless. Horrific. Undying horrors in a dying world.
This cursed tribe are not really alive, so bringing them down is nigh impossible. By branch and root, the members of the Tribe of Sarrassa utilize the little of nature that still resists in the Wastes to surprise their opponents with terrible surprise attacks. While undead, the Garrics are a doomed people, so their opponent's best hope is to just outlast them in the battlefield."
Eventually some HATE minis will join forces with Warhammer. IMO the Sarassa would work fine as Spite revenants in a Sylvaneth army. To give you an idea see the pic below.
