Hello everybody!

Some weeks ago I have seeing miniatures of Wargames Factory, I saw their 'zulu warriors' and I thought to do a warband of possessed with them. I thought of basing the warband on the cult of Cthulhu from the mythology of the writer H.P. Lovecraft... I bought some parts of zulu warriors, 15 bodys and many arms (around 6€ from the buyer hoard_*_bits Very Happy ). I will be doing the warband in the free moments... Smile

All the comments and ideas are welcome!

The zulu warriors:
Cult of Cthulhu Dscf1010

Some ideas for brethren's heads:
Cult of Cthulhu Cabeza10

The first brethren:
Cult of Cthulhu Cultis10
Cult of Cthulhu Herman10

Now that's an interesting/imaginative/original idea. The First Brethren certainly turned out OH-SO-COOL...VERY WELL DONE! Keep up the FINE WORK! thumbsup

What a great idea! Very promising start for this project, first painted one looks good.
Btw, how well those figures mix with GW stuff? About same size?

Thanks for comments!

The size of wargames factory is similar than GW (the two has minis of 28mm), a bit more thin bodies and the arms and hands are more small (more realistic).. but "a picture is worth a thousand words"... Smile

Cult of Cthulhu Tamaao10
1:LOTR's mini; 2:GW's mini; 3:Wargames Factory's zulu; 4:Wargames Factory's saxon; 5:GW's militia

Cult of Cthulhu Brazos10
Left: Wargames Factory's saxon body with an GW's arm; Rigth: Wargames Factory's arm and GW's arm

Many thanks for bothering to take those pics! thumbsup I had impression they were way smaller. Judging now, they seem to fit nicely among GW stuff.

Sorry, but I am going to have to copy your idea (in other words, I'm going to steal it). Smile

Awesome project!

Very Happy Thanks! you can steal it if you want! Laughing

I have two new brethren for the warband...
Cult of Cthulhu Cultis12
Cult of Cthulhu Cultis13

and this is the complete group...
Cult of Cthulhu Grupo_10

...I want to do two or three more with bows but first I want to begin with the beastmen, they will be something like 'fishman' (deep-ones in the context of cthulhu myth) I will use a krots bodies and legs.

Awesome concept! You've put those zulus to great use. I've always wanted to grab some and could just never figure out how to use them. I may put together a little Chthulhu cult myself...

Great idea, and I second the thanks for the size comparison pics. I've been interested in WF's stuff, but wasn't sure about the size.

Awesome thing you mentioned Kroots for conversions for fishmen or swamp creatures. I got mine yesteday and finished assembling them today. I had to replace those sci-fi rifles with some savage orcs' weapons but it worked out in the end.

I literally had the idea of a Lovecraftian Possessed warband today and I pop on here and see this! Yog damn it!

But seriously, really damn cool models - they look unique and actually quite scary, I can imagine them howling Cthulhu F'tagn down a ruined street before bashing someone's brains in. I'd love to see more, particularly some crazy monsters.

I do have one critique of the models however - the basing. I know its incredibly unimportant but close up the cobbles look a little 'doughy'.

VERY COOL! The Hoods give the Lads a sinister aspect merely by letting the imagination wonder what they conceal. Keep up the GOOD WORK! What a Face

Thanks all for comments!

Jape: yes, I should invest more time in the bases... I'm so lazy for doing bases... Laughing when I paint it (now has only with the first cap)I hope that it improves it... and for the next base I will invest more time because I bought 'Instant Mold' and I'm thinking in make a mold of a base done for myself to do 'good' bases fast in the future. Smile

JoaoS: I wait your images of it! Smile Nowadays I have a head made but I see her slightly simple and want to modify it to make her more sinister ... and in my case the arms also I will do them with putty ... I hope that I don't sculpt it too badly... Smile

Guess it will take me a few months to get started with the painting...
