Oops I sort of lied in my last post but I'm not going to fix that instead I'm going to do something utterly chaotic. I've decided to use these as a Jabberwocky (The Legion of Everblight Seraph) and a Cygor (the Dungeons and Dragons CMG Beholder Tyrant) Any suggestions for colour schemes and names would be gladly accepted. Does anybody have any recommendations for basing and do people feel their good representations of the units?

My camera's co-operating today apparently I needed to say the 4th catechism of the blessing of the Onnissiah for Digital Cameras the 8th that I was using is only for analog camera's
So here's my Mire Golem it's a beautiful model really catching the theme of a swamp construct. I'm actually very happy with the paint on this one.....


The models from Wyrd Miniatures Malifaux line which has a lot of gems in it for Beastman players........

Well I played my first 3 games yesterday one against High Elves (Bad Loss), one against a Chaos Cult of Tzeentch (Warriors of Chaos with no Chaos Warriors (Wipeout)) and one against Beasts of Chaos (I was wiped out). Learning points include the fact that Minotaurs are awesome and 14" movement isn't as fast as I think. I deliberately tried out both the Jabberslythe and the Cygor and current;y I'm leaning towards preferring the Jabberslythe. I've also decided that using the Mire Golem as a Doombull may be a good idea. I've also created this model yet another Shaman......This one's Zoraida from Wyrd Miniatures Malifaux line and as you can see I left her as is. The weird twiggy thing is just that a weird twiggy thing based in miliput.

I've just finished painting the last Centigor giving me two completed herds. I've also now worked out I've got a roughly 2000pt army finished all I need to complete is the Jabberslythe or Cygor and after last weeks games I reckon the Jabberslythe's in! I'm going to leave of painting him for a while however as I'm not yet sure on the base size and I reckon it'll be FAQ'd fairly soon (just after I give in and make one!)

I've worked out that I do have a 2000pt army painted I'll try and take photographs of it soon. With the finishing of my Jabberslythe I have finished the army well in time for the tournament in April although I'll have a nights repair soon. I'll do photographs and a tournament review soon as well. Gaming with it I've found the Beastmen fun and effective. However I still fail about 80% of my psychology tests every game and am having huge problems charging terror causers. The big surprise at the moment is how much I like the basic Ungors and Gors.......

I'm rather happy with him. He's just the Warmachine Seraph bunged on a Square Base.

Looking forward to those army shots and the tournament report - good luck out there in the meantime! I'd be curious what your list looks like, sounds like you're only taking 1 monstrous rare? Good on you, and I hope the jabber serves you well. I'm more of a cygor man, but the jabber is a close second, and he really excels against not-ItP armies.

Commendations on all the hard work you've put in here, I've enjoyed stopping in to see what weird (wyrd) models you scrounge up for beastly mayhem. That beholder model, by the way, is intense and IMO a perfect jabber model. Your seraph works quite nicely, but nothing says insanity like an enormous uber-beholder!

Currently the tournament I've been painting up for is a 1999pt one so I only have 1 Rare slot so I haven't been able to rely on them lately. I also really wanted to use the large units of Centigor I've spent a lot of time on recently........
The Beholder is from D&D miniatures its the Emperor one from the Legendary Encounters one and should be fairly easy to find. I'm currently planning to use it as a Cygor as it makes sense for the anti-wizardy psychology stuff and I spent a lot of time playing Heroes of Might and Magic 3 which had Beholders as an equivalent unit to Cyclops...........

A while back I got a bundle of spares from Maelstrom Games for my Guard. Good lot and good service their BTW. But within their was for reasons I've yet to comprehend a bunch of giant sprues. Now I've got a few spare legs from my Centigor and decided this was a chance to create some nastily gribbly monstrosities. These will just be used as Gor at the moment.
The first of these is Big 'Ead Boris and uses a Giant's Head miliputted onto a pair of legs as an entire torso.

I've also got a Monopod these are inspired by the creatures in the Medieavel bestiaries who slept under their giant single foot sheltering them from the sun. If I had a fewmore of these I'd almost be tempted to use him as a Harpy.

As neither of my 2 wizards have managed to get a spell of I thought I should take a new one to the tournament and here she is. She's the regular Malifaux Pandora models with no tweaks. She's going to represent the Mistress the evil mind behind the army. I plan to use her as a Great Bray Shaman in most games. The bizarre creature with her is the Stone of Power it's made from Ungor Legs with the Giants hand holding a menhir as a torso. It will be used to represent a Gor and the Shard of the Herdstone magic item.

Pandora as a great bray is a grand idea, mistress of the monsters and all that The handigor carrying the shard of the herdstone (or whatever that item is called) is actually pretty nifty too, works a bit better than the other beasts + giant parts convos (which are cool too, just a bit more ungainly).

When's that tourny again? And 1999, very cool. My own beast plan goes to 1500 and stops there ...

I thought it was this Saturday but apparently it's next I just like to have everything ready well beforehand just in case works drags me miles away from paints and glue. I'm glad you liked them. I have to agree with you about the combination it just works mainly as both were already the perfect fit together......

Next Weeks the big Tourney so today I've been doing the mad fixing and model counting to check I actually can make up my list. Fortunately I don't need to paint anything else at all. My current basic list plan is as follows.

Wargor
Bray Shaman
Gorebull
Gor Block
Ungor Spear Block
Gor Ambush Unit
Ungor Ambush Block
Ungors of annoying redirection
2 Chariots
2 Units of Hounds
2 Regiments of Centigor
The Minotaurs
and a Jabberslythe

I'm still humming and arring about final composition considering swapping the Ungors of annoying redirection for 2 units of Raiders.....Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Its not a hugely disgusting list but it's nice and simple and can deal with almost everything........
Now after that dull text here's the pictures..........
Full Army Shots


A few detail shots of the Centrepieces
The Commanders of the Host (from left to right Hickathrift, Malacht Cromail and the Mistress)

Hickathrift's Hackem'mores my River Troll/Minotaur regiment (any plans of making these guys absolutely WYSIWYG have been destroyed by the wonderful new River Troll kit...........

The Mistresses Wyrm my Jabberslythe.

Note that this isn't everything as you know I've got more chariots and characters as well as about 20 Raiders painted up. The Tournament base is just corrugated card flocked up and painted with PVA as water I decided against carrying a large heavy piece of hardboard around with me! All the movement trays are the FREE ones from One Monk Miniatures whos interestingly declared that ALL his paper stock kits are now free. If like me you've fallen in love with print out models (no scenery painting WOOHOO!) This is great news indeed.

Well I got back from Edinburgh last night from the anarchy and surrealism that is the UK Student Nationals. I had 5 great games against 5 wonderful opponents and it was a well run highly enjoyable tournament. The only bad thing to happen this year is that my team won and we'll have to host it next year. I don't know quite how badly I did yet but after 4 defeats and 1 win I don't think I placed well. So here go's.....

Game 1 Dale's High Elves (I hope he was Dale anyway it might have been Doug he ended up winnning this year....)
This was a great game against a skilled opponent with a beautiful army with some lavishly modelled Heroes and Kitty's of Doom! First turn not much happened except for the Jabberslythe getting shot my Ambushers arrived on both flanks. Turn 2 it started to go pair shaped when the Dragon Princes (the aforementioned Doom Kitty Knights) charged a chariot and overran in the Minotaurs splatting them. The Ungors ate some Archers and overran into a Bolt Thrower. However the Kitty Chariot however demonstrated how hard it was and easily saw of the charging ambushing Gor and the Centigor. The Dragon Knights continued to rampage while my big block of Gor charged into the Sword Masters. The Ungor suicide squad attempted to lead of the White Lions and succeeded. However the Sword Masters didn't break. While the Ungor flanked a regiment of Archers containing the Elven general. Unfortunately next turn the Dragon Masters were just into the rear of my Gor blocak and ate them after that it was pretty much a mopping up exercise.

Game 2 Gonzo's Dwarfs.
This game rather spectacularly demonstrated why they didn't give Minotaurs Primal Fury. The scenario gave everybody Hatred and my Minotaurs made use of it to spectacular avail. The last of the regiment at the end of turn 5 had 10 attacks more than the group of 3 has to start with. My opponent was an amazingly good sport and brought me a pint in the bar afterwards for wiping out an entire regiment of 20 Dwarves in a turn. I couldn't have accepted the bad luck he had with such applomb and it was great fun...

Game 3 Bloke who's name I've totally forgotten from Stirling's? Dwarves.
Uh if your reading this sorry. I let myself get out manoeuvered by Dwarves or at least a nifty Gyrocoptor made from Dregmek's Blitzkart......It lured my Minotaurs to their doom.....I got shot lots and didn't head forward fast enough and my chariots did not appreciate the Strength 7 Bolt Throwers.....Good fun through.

Game 4 Hamish's Wood Elves

This was one of those games when a lot went wrong.....I was exhausted and hungover from the night before (which involved watching Iron Man fight/disco dance off Iron Man and other wacky high jinks and then breakfast with Sasha involving a discussion of Shakespeare's rants about LoSalt......). My opponent however was a gentle man who while he rolled a lot of ward saves we had fun. Noticeable moments including watching the Treekin eat the charging Minotaurs and the Centigor failing to splat the Archers containing the Mage in combat. The Jabberslythe also sulked and refused to eat the Dryads and then got chased of and smacked down by the Treeman which at least looked cool.......The guy running it remarked "that it was a resounding win for the forces of evil against the poor innocent Beastmen...)

Game 5 Sam's Lizardmen
Sam was also from Sheffield and we played each other in practicing he easily won that one. I however had a cunning plan NEW DICE. In the real thing however he didn't easily win he wiped out my army. However as my Centigor and 2 Chariots managed to eat the crew and priest from the Engine and my Gor regiment managed to break the Temple Guard and Stegadon combination. This however let the Skinks and Kroxigor counter flank them and eat them......My Jabberslythe got comprehensively duffed over by the saurus Cavalry but did manage to drive off thew Terradons. The cunning plan had failed. This was actually my favourite game a huge swings and roundabouts affair with a very poor beginning a period I though I'd turned it around and then the upsetting realisation everybody was dead.

What did I learn?
Minotaurs don't have Hatred for a Good Reason.....
Don't let them get charged.....
Gor take hideous losses in Combat.......
Newly painted Giant Monsters get shot repeatedly......
I should have taken 2 units of Ungor Raiders to stop my Minotaurs from being baited by Gyrocoptors and Skinks......
I want some Harpies.......
It's more important to have fun than win.....
You can go to a tournament just to have a deadline to paint to and to play other armies rather than attempt to win it with Uber Cheese.....

I'm currently planning the last few finishing touches to the army. These are a Troll Tribe I can't resist the plastic River Trolls and wish the Minotaurs were as good and Harpies. With the Harpies I'm torn between either Gargoyle conversions or Heresy's Waspquitoes as Heresy's Waspquitoes are currently OOP I'll probably go with the Gargoyle Conversions but I'm definitely using their Hellbeast's for Razorgor!

I've just acquired some Trolls and Spawn kits to make some more Trolls for the force this'll give me a total of 12 I'll try and work out a command conversion and I'm definitely doing a Troll Chieftain Gorebull. I'm finding the kits quite odd they make lovely models but hey are definitely designed to go together in a single way rather than the many ways most GW kits can be put together. The Spawn models will just be mixed in among the Trolls to produce a truly Chaotic look. I've also decided to acquire a large bag of plastic toy flies which I'll paint out and use as Harpies......

Well the flies have been acquired as well as a "Thingummy the Wanderer" model I've always liked him except for the head which I'm going to change for a Fly Spawn head giving me a model useful in both a Warriors and a Beatsman army. Recently works been getting in the way of progress as I've got a job near my parents so most of my modelling stuff is still back home for now (the jobs a temporary contract and so I don't see a point in permamently moving). The forthcoming release of Islands of Blood also means I'll be returning back to Skaven my favourite warhammer army which might introduce more delays.
Currently the main thing I need to acquire (rather than assemble) finish the project of is a BSB anybody got some good ideas for a source for that model? However some more grunts would be useful in Warhammer's current framework........
However it's not all doom and gloom as my need for somethingto paint has led to me to finally start my Uncharted Seas fleet. Which cunningly I plan to paint decrepit and manky allowing me to use them for both my Beatsmen and Skaven. Hope you like the first Gunship a modle I'm absolutely delighted with!

I've always had a soft spot for the Wulfric the Wanderer model to my mind this roving marauder looked exactly like a Chaos Warrior should look. A roving barbarian festooned with trophies. I had only one problem the head was really bad. It just looks constipated. I therefore solved this problem by using one of the Chaos Spawn Heads and now I have a disgusting barbaric mutant of Nurgle. Also usefully for me I can use him either in this army or in a Chaos Warriors force. I've also acquired the last few bits and bobs for the army. It's a Drune War Staff I'm planning to head swap into Beatsmen the main reason to get it is the cool Chaos Standard bit. This will have to be left until I head back to Sheffield however.


Then I saw the Orc announcement from Wargames Factory. Ages ago when LoTR first came up I had a vague plan of using LoTR Orcs as Posessed for Mordheim these seem to be about the same style and the right size. Maybe I won't be stopping adding to this force any time soon!

Oh well the plan not to add much to the force was lost with the acquisition of about 40 old Harlequin, Marauder Miniatures and GW beastmen from Ebay. Out of interest doesanybody know much about Harlequin? As I've never really seen them before.

Cheers Hephaestus its a Beholder I decided to use one of them as a Counts As Cygor after remembering the image of them being used as long range artillery in Heroes of Might and Magic 3.

Right I've got a few models to show you I've painted up Pestis Manflayer (the Wulfric conversion) and I'm happy with him the yicky effect on the helm created by covering it with PVA worked well and made him look slimy. The softness of the Human Skin looks horrific and contrasts nicely with the armour. Hope you like him! I'm planning to use him as a Wargor although if I ever do Nurgle Chaos Warriors he becomes their Lord....



While they look more Skavenny than Beastmeny I'll put up my Shroud Mages fleet as well. I've completed the £20 basic starter set and I've got a hankering to add some more...#These have been really nice and different to paint providing something other than 28mm rank and file for my desk.


I'm also going to set out some goals as this is my first post of the year. I'm going to try and update with stuff at least once a month that means something new painted or another unit added. First priority is to paint enough to field 2500pts I think I've got this already. Currently I'm not going to buy anything else for this project. I need to get the Fly/Harpies done, the Trolls assembled and the old metal Gor done currently I'm doing OK with the metal Gor. If I find myself with an urge to add to this army the plan involves using Wargames Factory Orcs to add mutants (I wanted to do a Mordheim posessed band of LoTR Orcs years ago but didn't as they were out of scale) depending on scale and look these may become Bestigors. I still want to use Heresy Miniatures Hellbeasts to add Razorgor and I'll probably use them along with Wargames Factory Chariots to create Razorgor Chariots. The new models may get pushed aside for later as currently I'm also refurbishing my Skaven.

Right for this month I'll start with the cheapest unit I've done for this project

Yep 40 of these flies and bases cost me a £5 painted up they make effective fun little Harpies which look good and fit the theme well. I attempted to try and get a metallic blue bottle style sheen using a gunmetal wash however this didn't work anybody got any tips on getting a metallic paint effect?
I've also glued up a BSB. Eventually I went with the Celt Chariot Woman from Wargames Factory as a simple and effective conversion the pose was right for the banner and it took very little effort to produce the model. Its going to be painted up quickly as they're now really good.

I've discovered I can easily field a 2500pt horde Beastman Army as over the last 2 years I seem to have painted up 60+Ungor and 50+Gor without realising it. I can probably quiet easily get up to 3000pts..........Its always nice when you realise you have much more painted than you thought.
I've also had a fairly interesting gaming session with the Beastmen where I learnt that High Elves are still scary extremely scary....and got utterly massacared. I also should run wizards independently. My list was also a bit rubbish better luck next week. Uncharted Seas has proven great fun although I have no real idea what works as yet getting in close and unleashing a broadside seems to be the main tactic. Its a really good game and at £20 for a starter box well worth picking up.......

Some of the most utterly crazed conversions I've seen together in one force, reminds me of the early chaos stuff, and for some reason lone wolf and fighting fantasy novels.

While the painting isn't the best in the world, the dedication and chaotic look to the force, helps pull it up a few notches.

Wasn't convinced on the headswap for Wulfrik, but painted up, it somehow works.

Thanks a lot Earthbeard, the early Chaos fluff was a big inspiration for this force I wanted a lot of off the wall anarchy it helps that I've used a lot of the elder models which are far more anarchic than the current range. I'd also definitely agree with the painting although its gradually improving I hope....

I must admit I wasn't convinced at the start of the thread but when they're all put together they look great.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks a lot army shots tend to look better than those of single miniatures mainly because the bits which are done wrong jar less than when your looking at a small group.

Had fun painting up this demented monstrosity

I've also picked up the Warriors Book realising that by using my Gors as Marauders and the Centigor as Marauder Horsemen I could with very little effort get a 2nd army. A Chaos Warrior regiment could also be swapped back in as Bestigor. This will allow me to play with the Dragon Ogre conversions I promised myself when I began along with a Shrine. Razorgor first however.....
