So far i have two finished warbands. Witch Hunters and Carnival of Chaos. The first was made with models bought for specifically for the WH crew, the next made by mini's i had allready. Now its time for the next project!

I wanted to make a Beastmen warband for a long time and have had meny funny and wierd idears on how to theme them and what mini's to use. For a while i was totally set on using crocodile games fantastik Khemru range. However after playing alot aginst plastic warbands i realized that not only are they fun to assemble/mod/paint they also present great merit on the game table as the low weight allow them to stand on uneven ground without tipping over and also secures that the paint stay on the mini when its pushed over to reprisent it being stunned or knocked down. So for these resons i decided to make my new project an all plastic beastmen warband.
I got myself three boxes (Gors, Bestigors and Warhounds) and started to figure out how i would want to mix and asseble the peaces. However while doing so i quickly realized that if i, with the mini's at hand, wanted them to have any personality, a great deal of convertion would be needed.
So... Back to the shop and get some greenstuff and then home and find all my old bitsboxes. This Warband will surely take longer to make then my previous ones, however i suspect itll be alot of fun and figuered i would share my progress here Smile

My plan for the characters is as follows:

Warband Name: The Rite of Passage

Heroes:
Cheiftain: Little Hoof
Shaman: Stargazer
Bestigor: Pathfinder
Bestigor: Talespinner
Centigor: Newmoon

Gor Hero: Dreamer

Henchmen:
Gors: The Winterborn
Gors: The Autumn Braves
Chaos hounds: The Howlers
Minutaur: Totem

The idear is to play a pack of braves sent out to the city of Mordheim to fufill their Rite of Passage. I want them to look very tribal, very hardcore and very young.

So far ive begun working on the young minutaur, "Totem". I was pretty inspired by the designs in the Conan movie, when it comes to barbarian looks Smile
He is made from the Warhammer Quest minutaur, with a beastmen Gor Mace in the right hand and a Khemri skull, Mordheim backpack, emperial archer pouch and Ogre Bull cleaver in his belt. The Saron btw, is my first ever greenstuff creation.

That is a PRETTY COOL Bully Boy...the kilt & added equipment make him somewhat less bestial but no less feral...if that makes any sense. VERY NICE bit of conversion; have FUN with the painting! What a Face

Thank you Smile
This greenstuff thing is pretty fun to play around with. To think it took me so long to get around to do anything other then filling gabs with it study

Well the two first Gors are done.
This is the Autumn Braves. I really like how i got the rather boring standard beastmen bodies to look dynamic and in action. The greenstuff hooded cloaks are 2. and 3. GS creations, and i think it went rather well Smile espesially the hoods.

Sorry for the pic quality, its too dark and my light sources are limitid, but i really wanted to update as i went along Smile

Riiight... So, its been a while since the last update. Only reason for this have been my lack of camera Smile so in the meantime ive finished building the warband and will start painting them soon.
But first a series of pics, showing off the lot of them Very Happy

To figure out how to make their bases look I made a few counters (Hidden, Drunken, Bloodgreed)
The Rite of Passage 522245_3091698444068_1012204966_32342262_367098147_n

I really like how the snow turned out and the brown grass goes well with the white and grey i think Very Happy

And now for the Warband itself:

Here's a Gor
The Rite of Passage 540021_3091699044083_1012204966_32342263_266163273_n

And another Gor
The Rite of Passage 540608_3091699484094_1012204966_32342264_841739280_n

One more Gor
The Rite of Passage 562782_3091700004107_1012204966_32342265_1026680012_n

And Gor number four
The Rite of Passage 562416_3091700644123_1012204966_32342266_664454054_n

The final Gor, and the one id use as hero if i get "Lads got talent"
The Rite of Passage 292674_3091701924155_1012204966_32342268_1441805942_n

Minutaur, now with basing stuff

Thanks allot 'Fly and Deaf' Very Happy indeed im looking forward to the painting! Smile

I dicided to post the WIP on the hired swords anyway Smile as mentioned above, they are homemade by our gaming group.

This is a Gough Horn Manhunter.
The Rite of Passage 574980_3091942090159_1012204966_32342410_1516739077_n
Same stats and rules as a pitfighter from the core book exept for +1 Movement and -1 Initiative.

And this here is a Woodland Ogre.
The Rite of Passage 545757_3091942770176_1012204966_32342411_1597796817_n
Exactly the same rules and stats as the ogre bodyguard, except it can only be hired by beastmen Wink

And finally an Ungor Scout.
The Rite of Passage 575559_3091943170186_1012204966_32342412_1389816209_n
Its a halfling scout but with -1 initiative, - 2 leadership and +1 toughness and +1 movement.

Great looking gang, fantastic green stuffing! I really like what you have done with the beasts, wait that sounded a bit wierd... anyway keep up the good work

and may I suggest naming the lord Little Horn? A more biblical reference to the infernal beastman Evil or Very Mad

Hey guys Smile
The beasties have been on hold for a while now. I got sidetracked assembling and painting an undead warband for a friend (almost done). But now i turn my attention back on the Rite of Passage, and doing so brings up a few questions Smile

Any good advice on painting white fur? I have most of the old GW colours and some of the new one.

Any good advice on painting warpaint (on beastmen)? I guess its just a matter of picking up a brush and some red paint and challenge my freehand skills, but some tips would be really nice Smile

Thanks in advance, ill post pictures as soon as there's something to post Very Happy

Awesome conversions! You're really good at sculpting, and the idea of turning Chaos Warhounds into centigors is genious. Smile

Again, thanks for the comments Very Happy
As you can tell from the Gor's i couldn't really figure the cloaks out myself either Wink so they're pretty different Smile but I like the overall feel of the crew Smile
Its been a while now since the last picture update to these guys, but I still can't decide on an approach to white fur :/ I'll get back to that tonight though Smile

Meanwhile I've been playing around with these two side projects:
An undead warband for a friend, and a possessed warband, for our test campaign Smile

So...

I decided to start by painting one of the hired swords, to check out the colours I am going to use, and boy am I glad I did. This theme, I think, looks okay/not horrible on the ungor, but it needs work before its ready for the big guys Smile
