The survey of what I've got hasn't happened and most of my modelling time went on the 24th Islandlwanda recently. These guys are therefore on the back burner. Then however I got my order from Wyrd miniatures. The Malifaux models are gorgeous sculpts on a par with Reckham and the best of GW's offerings. They look wonderfully sinister and are well worth checking out. The link is http://www.wyrd-games.net/. I own Pandora (both versions one for a Great Shaman and the other for Morghur) Zoraidai (yet another shaman!) The Mire Golem (another spawn I'll need a lot if I ever use Morghur sadly enough the model is too small to use as a gaint) and the Silurid Slaves (if your looking for evil fantasy fishmen take a look at these!). Delivery was slightly slower than they said on the website but the British postal system is currently in more chaos than usual......So it wasn't their fault all in all good value, lovely sculpts and reasonable service!

Just a quick apology about the lack of updates, I've also just acquired an Uncharted Seas Shroud Mages fleet which I'll probably paint to tie in with my skaven but will probably mention here.

I'm in the mood for a monster update today. I've had these for awhile but as I'm going to undercoat them now I thought I may as well show these off unpainted. A few simple pose swaps and a bit of putty makes them look much more dynamic.

The fact their River trolls just fits my theme well.

This guy I've only recdently acquired he's the Mire Golem from Wyrd Miniatures. I've decided to use him as a Spawn. The scenic base I'm ecstatic with as I really like the image of him defending the bridge on the only safe path out of the fen to rip apart any tresspassers. The sign is from the Quovandius Inquisitor model and adds a nice touch. All in all he's one of the models I'm happiest with. I just can't wait to paint him!

Just to prove I'm still working on these guys. Heres some more grunts-

Heres yet more grunts

The flaming torch on this guy was painted with the advice of Sirath check out his awesome Tau 3rd Sphere Reclamation Force blog here on Dakka Dakka. His advice on painting Fire is pretty much incompetent fool proof!

Heres the Troll its an experiment using the Privateer Press Brown Ink which really darkens him up I'm not sure about it on the grunts but on him and my Zulus it should do well.

I'm also gradually basing up my Shroud Mages Fleet for Uncharted Seas which should be great fun to paint. I'm really looking forward to doing something totally different to 28mm and 1;72!

Good news for this project its getting a big boost as I've decided to try and get this army ready for a tournament by April. I therefore need to get cracking the tournaments 1999pts so no need to worry about Greater Daemons making it far more enjoyable. Main focus will be adding some Centigors possibly based upon the Marauder horsemen possibly based upon the Wargames Factory Celtic Cavalry depending on how I feel at the time (the Wargames Factory versions will be much smaller.
Heres something thats recently been painted another Chariot.

Hmmm I'm currently running into apathy problems with this the new Beastmen book apparently means I'll have to rebase all my Ungor and sort out commands for them.Their also apparently stopping skirmishing which will lose a lot of their uniqueness. As well as that all my specific Nurgle modelling becomes useless. Although according to the scuttlebutt I'll still be able to use all 4 of my chariots....

Well the rebasing is confirmed. I checked the descriptions of the Ungor box contents on GW's website so it can be considered confirmed, After I'd specially brought 25mm bases from Gale Force 9 as well............I've started at that but it's not really interesting. Checked out the new minotaurs at £27 for 3 I'll be looking for the old ones on Ebay and checking for alternative's out their. I don't mind them but I don't £9 each like them. Originally I was planning to combine them with Chaos Spawn for utter carnage. No chance at that price however. On more enthusiastic news I've painted up a Kelt Spasm Warrior model I'm planning to use her as a Wargor what do people think?

Ok I've recently spent my Christmas money on new toys . Even though the new Beastmen are coming out soon I've brought a Beast Herd as they work out so much better value. Looking at the contents of the Ungor box on the GW website I realised I wanted more Skirmishers as well as some Ungor Bowmen I've got more than enough Ungor with Spears. However rather than buy GW models for these I've decided to use Wargames Factories Ancient Germans £15 for 30 compared to £15 for 10 is not to be sneezed at after all . The bows also looked great and are great. I've also acquired some Ancient German Cavalry whose Horses are going to become Centigor with a little judicious butchery. The spare legs and torsos will be combined at random for more mutant Nurglitch nastiness. I've rebased all the undercoated Ungor and started on my unpainted models the rest I'll leave until I actually get a copy of the book.
These are my latest finished Gor and Ungor the Gor with the lamp is meant to be luring travellers into the fen. The original plan was to have 2 or 3 like this as musicians for my ambush regiments. The 2 Ungor with CCW are basic weapon swaps for Mordheim now also useful as Ungor Skirmishers. It's also important for every Beastman player to know they've got to rebase Ungor to 20mm.

I've also painted another Trol. When the new book comes out my troll will be Minotaurs. I'm not a big fan of the price of the new Minotaurs the model aren't bad though, I'll see what Ebay brings!


I decided to base up all the little Voodoo Dolls I've got with Zoraida the Hag from Wyrd Miniatures Malifaux range seperately to use as Familiars. Another possible use is objective markers although I think they're too small for that.

Last but by no means least I've finished my final chariot giving me 4

interesting conversions.

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

To be honest they look a bit darker in RL than they do in the photographs. I wash them at the end with a Snakebite Leather wash my own brew and sometimes it comes out a bit too light cheers for the advice.

Great ideas, I especially love the way the troll turns out. Your painting style is different; it's gritty and unconventional. I like it.

Thanks a lot Owain you've made my day.

I've been rebasing Ungor their now almost all on 20mm bases just got to paint and finish them. It's been a bugger but the Miliput and PVA both scrape of nicely I've also got a stack of finished bases for Gor if I want to later on. More enjoyably I've finished my first 2 Centigor their a kitbash from Wargames Factory Ancient Horses (smaller and more pony like than GW horses) and GW Gors. The 2 halves go together surprisingly well. The loads on their back are loot they've pilfered and the sacks and barrels came from an OO/HO model railway pack which is why they're prepainted. I'm going to do 12 of these and use 2 Rackham Centaurs as Champions or the Centiogr special character depending on mood giving me 2 regiments of 7.

Right I've been getting a fair old bit done recently. I've been playing with making some Ungor Archers I've done a bunch using the ancient plastic wood elf archers which won't be photographed for a while. I've also made these 3 using a combination of Wargames Factory Ancient German and GW Ungor, Skaven and Empire Militia parts. You may notice all the heads and arms are GW. Thats as this is an heroic scale army therefore I will not be using many if any True Scale Wargames Factory Arms Legs and Heads. This is as they don't scale well together, My 24th Islandlwanda project uses entirely Wargames Factory arms and heads for the same reason. However as Beastmen are mutants I like the variety of sizes and shapes here.

I've also got a lot more Centigors down. I've got 9 finished but like the Wood Elf Archer conversions several are undercoated and that does not photograph well

I've started painting the Avatars of War Beastlord and I'm just basing up my last Troll.

I've done something I thought I couldn't yes its my first full Regiment shot after almost a Year!
Here are my Trolls painted at last just in time to become obsolete next week! (No honestly their Swamp Minotaurs can't you tell!)

I've also finished assembling my Centigor. The 2 painted models are Rackham Centaurs I'm going to use as Champions Heres both herds giving me 2 regiments of 7.

This Centigor is going to be modelled with a looted Pub sign as a Standard. Any suggestions for the pub name? The Sign itself is cereal packet card and it was tied to the beam with string and cursing! The barrel is another of those railway bits.

OK I've been going fairly well at this project and I'm looking forward to the Beastman book next week. All my Ungor are know ready for it and that chores over. I've been cranking out basic rank and file although I'll leave that for an army shot later. Several of the Centigor are receiving paint. I've also finished my Beast Lord the picture isn't particualrly flattering. He looks far less pasty in real life.

I've also assembled The Mistress. She's a Pandora Avatar of Woe model from the Malifaux range. This model represents the guiding force behind my Beastmen. Currently I'm planning to use her as Morghur eventually. The 8 pointed star around her relic was made by cutting and sticking cardstock down.

This final thingy is something I'm not sure of at all. I can either use him as a Gor, Foe Render or as a Chaos Spawn which would fit him best? He's mean't to be some sort of freakish Triffid thing which I think I've accomplished. He's also part of a more random looking group of Chaos Followers. The idea is that as well as the true Beastmen the Mistress attracts cultists who gradually disintegrate into slobbering monsters like him........When they're done I'll show you a progression group of painted models.

I'm still at work on yet more deranged followers of Nurgle. Skaven legs are great if you want little evil midgets, their torsos also produce some nasty hunchbacks. These will give me lots of count as Ungors and Gors. I've also rebased the Female Wargor onto a planking base this will allow me using my original chariot to have an obvious larger Character Chariot. Out of interest do people feel that the difference in size would allow me to refer to this as a Razorgor chariot? Other plans include a Jabberwocky based on the Hordes Legion of Everblight Seraph. Another of these schemes is Gargoyles converted from the Tyranid Gargoyles and the Ghouls! Heres the pictures of the chariot.....

No trouble Lunahound it is. Only problem is I don't sort of have any standard GW Beastman! (I chopped most of the Plastic kits to combine at random with Ghouls and Zombies. Heres a basic shot. From Left to Right you've got a strange midget (Skaven Legs Ungor Torso), OOP GW Gor, Gor Conversion (Gor Legs Zombie Torso), Avatars of War Beastlord, Ungor from Wargames Factory Ancient German and a OOP metal Ungor.

I also took this shot of him compared to a 2nd Ed Marine

He's a large impressive model standing head and shoulders above the rest of my Gor but as he's a Beastlord who are the strongest and mightiest of the tribe that makes perfect sense. With my Beastmen I also try and get a very varied look with lots of mishappen models of random sizes. He is definitely a heroic scale model as well if that helps.

No trouble glad to be of service you planning on getting one?

Actually he'd rank fine the axe is at 45* so will rank in fine. The actual problems come from the Horn and Shield I added!

Of course it didn't help that when I assembled him I didn't have to worry about ranking him......

A quick piece of background for the army.

A Tale Most Horrific of the Dire Inhabitants of the Perilious Swamps nown in the mane as ye Fenne of Hel
Much has been wrote by my many esteemed colleagues of the nefarious forces of Undead that lurk within Hel’s Fenn sight of that glorious victory against the forces of the Night. Indeed many forget of the other perils that lurk therein. For many years a s well as attracting the Undead and those of the most disturbing Neurotic tendencies many other foule Beasts have been discovered lurking therein acting as a grave threat to commerce. Mutant and Greenskin do cavort most unseemly in the mirky mire but as well as these unorganised small bands there is a tale of alair of a far more perilous foe.
The tale is told of a young Wytch known to consort with that foulest of Gods whose name I shall not utter who was being conveyed to the fair and good Count of Ostermark for judgement. A Notorious case as she was a woman known for her beauty and wealth who had been involved much in the society of the province. Knowing full well her fate for she had committed most grievious sins unto Sigmar and his church she yelled upon her God. Unfortunately those who conveyed her must have been lax with their tithes or otherwise offended Our Lord of the Hammer for her prayers were answered. A roving band of Beastmen led by a mighty Shaman attacked the Caravan. For reasons unbeknown to the sane they did attack slaughtering the Guard until only the Wytch Hunter and his personal companions were left. Then the Shaman uttered a great spell of doom and cracked open the carriage. Out clambered the Wytch not a faired was she but greatly enraptured. She approached the Shaman and he made obeisance towards her. Then she turned around and with the holy lockets and binding chains ofd faith sundered did proceed to cast a horrific malefic spell upon the Wytch Hunter suddenly they were wrenched in a Typhoon the veritable Wind of Change swiftly they began to melt and bond and reform into a most gruesome Spawn. Then she left and departed into the fen.
She is believed to still lurk within the Fenn acting as a leader for Cultist and Mutant and Beast alike. She lures many to her Dark Lords worship. The Mistress as she is often referred to is arguably one of the most insidious commanders of the Brutish Beastmen who has ruled a court of the Damned for Fyve Hundred Years or more it is apparent that she has eceived the Darkest Reward for her foul service.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak.

Well I've been cranking models out at a fair old clip. Being a jobless bum helps for that (I work as an archaeologist it's temporary jobs tied in with construction, at least nows the best time of year to be inside!). These
Silurid Slaves were great fun and a really quick job. I think they look quite good and if I ever do 'Nids its close to how I'd do them.

I've also finished the first Centigor Regiment I've got another to do. The movement trays the free cardstock one I downoaded from One Monk Miniatures.

I went for "The King's Head" for the pub sign it's appropriate for the region and looks suitably gory. The signs a print out of an image of the execution of King Charles the First I found on Google Images. It's appropriate for the fen theme.


Also I've chosen the name "Malacht Cromail" for my Beastlord it's Gaelic meaning the Curse of Cromwell and quite appropriate for a raiding blackguard!

I just brought the Beastman book today and actually I'm really impressed with it. The background sections are brilliant and give the Beastmen far more colour than either the Beasts of Chaos or the Realms of Chaos ever did. As a background book and read its fairly nice although sadly the rumour mill was fairly accurate about the loss of Raiders although losing mixed units actually suits me. It looks like an interesting list to use with some nice magic items and interesting tricks. Currently I'm toying with the idea of an all Chariot army and I'm going to spend the next few days reading it and playing with lists. It's also became apparent to me that I've got a painted 2000 pt list and I'll start sorting out some unit shots tomorrow.
