Timmy's painted Sronax (also For Sale)

Here's my painted Fomoraic/Sronax army that I have been using as a Warherd army in AoS (to show off our minis to new audiences) Aside from Druc and Gorugg (an Ysian and an Albainn) they would make a great Fomoraic army - all those Sronax will hit like a ton of bricks!

Well scale in terms of height is easy enough as we have steel rulers in all the early WiPs.
