As nurgle lover i could not exempt myself from having a carnival of chaos warband and the ispiration came after having watched Fellini's film "The Road" where the protagonist/antagonist is ZampanÚ a brutal, strong man that wanders trough Italy showing his ability in breaking a chain with his chest strenght.

Well here the first model a brute with uncovered face, i've use bits from marauders,ogres,zombies and imperial ones:





It's still a bit unfinished as i need to resculpt the leather string on his body.
C&C are welcome

That is a nicely converted/cool piece; the background fluff makes him even cooler...he looks the part. GOOD WORK; I look forward to seeing him all painted up...along with the rest of his Traveling Company. thumbsup

Thinking of the Carnavale theme; I'd like to see or model myself a Traveling Vampire Troupe. What a Face

Thanks Deaf,
the idea of Undead Carnival is pretty cool, a shambling horde of clowns, acrobats and freaks,
and speaking of freaks here there's a little pathetic creature, a child of Nurgle(nurgling/familiar):

"Please Sir, can i have some more?"

"More? You want MORE!" VERY COOL Little Guy/Ghoul! It's amazing the things that G.W's wonderful plastic pieces can yield; this is a FINE example of that statement. EXCELLENT kit-bashing & green stuffing. Keep up the INSPIRING WORK! thumbsup

Thanks Deaf! Too kind words!
There's no model for the second tainted one so i converted it starting from a plague monk and a goblin,i wanted him to look grotesque, a bit crazy and ridicolous so he has two peg legs, a bloated belly and his face is a skull covered by a carnival mask:

here with his friends:


P.S: i need to file some mould lines and the Green Stuff on his shoe

The latest Tainted Fellow has a charmingly bizarre quality about him...nice modeling & clever use of the parts.
The Group Shot gives an idea of just how strange the Group is...GREAT WORK! thumbsup

Great converting. Nothing like plastic bitz and greenstuff to get the imagination going. Can't wait to see how these develop.

Thanks all for the compliments about my conversions, they are not so great as described by you just some simple experiment with kitbash and greenstuff and yes Ser Tasnica steal anything you want Very Happy .
Anyway for Christmas i brought for myself the original carnival of chaos from gw ,before to put t under the tree i checked the box out and i noticed that the metal brute is pretty huge way bigger than the one i converted so i'll convert another nurgle lord as brute and i'll keep all three.
It's pretty WIP i only changed the head but you can see the size difference:

The nice stuff keeps on coming Smile

Is that a gnoblar body for Sauron?

Where are the dancing nurglings from? Are they really the new nurglings??

You guild of strongmen looks good! I would try to remove the shoulder guard from the nurgle lord if you can. It jars a bit with the circus theme

Thanks both of you Very Happy
@Alex: yes for Sauron i've used the gnoblar that comes out from ogre or ogre ironguts sprues and the nurglings are from the plastic plaguebearers,there are 7 of them , about the shoulder pad i think i'm not able to take it off and resculpt the shoulder so i'll cover it with a piece of cloth(greenstuffed).

As a Lover of the carnival I must say these are shaping up very nicely indeed! Cannot wait to see them progress!.

The Carnival Brute is a massive model, so are the rest on the box really. Compare a mercenary to a brethren and they are a good bit taller. Guess old grandfather Nurgle likes taller followers.

Any thoughts on your colour scheme? I love the possibilities of bright warm colour combined with dirt and disease!.

Thanks all.
@skip: i loved your carnival blog here; i still don't know about the color schemes i was thinking to classic red and yellow with pale flesh tones or to use satured greens and yellows or purple and yellow, hard choice for me Very Happy so any suggestion is welcome.

Mesdames et Messieurs, Here we have ZampanÚ himself:
little kitbash on the original model
