PostSubject: The Hung are coming! (Marauders of Chaos)   Wed 26 Aug 2009 - 17:41

Hey all,

with the Boring Meeting in Bremen a first hand first class experience with the awesome BTB supplement behind me, I am fuelled with creative energy. As those attending might have noticed, I am now really hooked on the thought of creating and all mounted warband, and as cianty pointed out, the Hung Marauders would offer themselves, as they have easy access to warhorses and come with the ride warhorse skill. Plus, the Show us your BTB competition is still on, so there's even a deadline I can work towards. As the warband is easily put together (4 heroes on horses and 5 warhounds of chaos, yeah!), I could already start digging out the plastic horsemen I bought a while back.

The Hung are supposed to be a bit smaller than the rest of the Cathayan folks, but unfortunately, I like the new and not-so-small Marauder Horsemen quite a lot, as well as marauders made from Chaos Warrior legs and Beastmen bodies, so some yellowish skin and a few Cathayan beards will have to suffice, I'm affraid. Anyway, here's the first pic for you:



The hero you can see might end up as the chieftain. I really want to magnetize the torsos and arms to be able to easily switch between mounted and dismounted status, so I might need some tinkering to get some proper looking torsos... we'll see. C&C welcome as usual.

Whoot! you're not wasting any time are you!?

you're going for armoured then?
- I haven't read up on them, but thought they were barechested mongolian like folk? but this leaves an excellent opening for me to create my own maurauders in mongolian style, and battle yours! haha

Looking good so far.

The marauder horsemen heads do actually look the part for Hung. Could maybe do with some handlebars.

Now, Mister, would you mind looking at the marauder on foot? As far as I can see, he is indeed barechested Razz Actually, I want the chieftain to have a helmet and a shield, while the rest will be bareheaded (most likely with the bare head from the old marauders with some of these chinese moustaches GSed on) and dual-wielding... I'm just not sure what to do with the seer yet Smile

Shamans are always tricky to do and I am curious to see what you come up with. I like them with furs and maybe a skull as a helmet (like Native American shamans or something).

Yeah, that sound good. But first I need to decide which god he'll follow... most likely Arkhar to get even more close combat craze Smile But they all sound promising in a way... Hm.

So, with the deadline approaching fast, I already got busy cutting some marauders, chaos warriors and gors apart and took some shots to give you an idea of how it will look in the end:



Now, I just need to GS the torsos and legs so they fit snugly onto each other.

And as a little preview for cianty, my Bloodfather, that is warrior priest of Arkhar the Dog:



He'll get a new torso as well, of course, I just wanted to see how it looks first. I am planning to extend the fur over his shoulders.

Holy...! At first I thought that he had a head mutation but a second look revealed a human head hidden below the Warhound's head. What a huge dude. Love it! Well done, my Bloodson! Wink

Hehe, thanks for the comments Smile

Anyway, while eating dinner, I had the idea that putting the horsemen torso on old marauder legs might work, too. I already tried, it looks ok and is of course smaller, which might be more fitting... BUT I don't like the marauder legs all that much, so I'll probably stick with the bigger variant even though it means a little unfluffyness and more work. Anyway, I see if I can take some more pictures after a little GSing work has been done, so you all can have a look, too.

Great work so far, Sascha!
The idea of using magnets to mount and dis-mount is awesome. Though I think the Chaos Warrior legs might be a little bit well armoured compared to the mounted legs.. But like you said, you don't like the Marauder legs that much..

Hmm, how about GS'ing some bulk or details on the existing Marauder legs?

I like the idea of using Gor torsoes instead of the normal Marauder bodies, it add the bit of extra bulk! Very Happy

Keep up the good work!

That was actually the plan. It's not even that much work, just adding the plates dangling from the belt and increasing the size of the knee-pads. The boots are fortunately the same Smile

As for the magnetizing, I did try it a minute ago for the arms, but unfortunately, they are a little too heavy for my 1mm magnets... So I need to buy some larger ones fast! I got some already, but not enough for all the warriors... Phew.

For the arms I'm using 3 mm magnets, which works out perfectly as they fit right into the arm sockets without trouble, but are strong enough to hold plastics up (just don't try the metal axes and you should be fine haha)

1 mm I might need for my spare weapons strapped on the back... are they strong enough for that? (I just want to add some hammers and swords to the backs and hips... but the 3 mm are too thick for this...)

Great job so far! I should perhaps post some of my progress aye? Razz

Thanks for the tips with the magnets. I will order some as soon as I can. 1mm should hold the weapons, they can even hold a Chaos Knight arm with an axe (just not in any position), so they should definitely be able to hold some small hammers etc.

And yeah, some of your progress would be nice to see, too Very Happy By the way, I like the new signature Razz

Alright, I did not do too much work, but I found out that my other magnets (2mm) are strong enough to support the arms. So, without further ado, a tiny bit of progress:



And as promised a shot of the alternative way to create marauders with switchable torsos (horsemen body and marauder legs):



But as I said, I don't think it's too cool.

I do like their short legs though, but the heads seem a tad too big (and the arms as welll... sadly..) small little pests on ponies would be totally sweet! haha

VERY NICE! The head & arms look fine to moi. He doesn't really look much like a Mongol rider...more 13th Warrior meets Mad Max at the Thunder Dome...that's pretty COOL though. thumbsup

Alright, after some more tinkering, I discovered that the marauder heads might be a little bit small for the large Gor torsos... However, with the arms in place, it looks alright again. And I'm afraid that the Bloodfather would look a little bit stupid if he got that super large hat but only short legs... Perhaps someone can voice his professional opinion about anatomy Smile




Also, I managed to magnetize the other arm for my chieftain. He looks kind of massive now.



I think I will also magnetize his head so I can switch to demon form in time Smile

LOOKIN' EVIL...in a GOOD sort of way. The chain & hook on the Ugly Guy's pick gives a nice sense of motion; intended or not, it's a nice touch. Now stop reading & get back to work. thumbsup
