The painting of the Beastial army of the Soulflayer is ticking along nicely. I have completed the first regiment of 20 Beastmen, the Dragon Ogre, Harpies, Chaos Hound, and some Minotaurs.
I have been a little busy on e-bay and replaced the old solid based C21 Minotaurs with later 1980's ones as the C21 series ones looked too small. I am happy how the army is starting to look, and will varnish and base it all in one go once all the painting is finished.
Of course, these are all WIP photographs so any painting errors will be sorted out before the army is ready to go.
I have photographed more Goblins too, including the full set C27 Chaos Goblin Mutants as some people have expressed an interest in seeing them.
Army so far.
From the photos online and in Warhammer Armies, I think this is about as close as I can get.
I need to tidy him up, and then he's done :)
The Chaos Sorcerer, Mad Jakkel.
I thought I would go for really bright colours for him, and for some of the monsters, to off-set the duller grey-green tones of the Beastmen and Minotaurs.
Two more minotaurs.
The one on the right is the Marauder one, which never looked as fearsome as the Citadel ones. However, with this colour scheme he looks a bit more meaner.
Well, ok, they are'nt techneally Harpies, but I will use them as such. They are two Gargoyles from Reaper.
Rear view of the wings.
Dragon Ogre, painted to match the beastial skin tone for the army .
I have no idea of the miniature, I think it might be an RAFM. It might have had wings at some point as I had to green stuff over part of the back
Painted white, with a purple ink wash.
Two Runequest Broo with new weapons, and a repaired citadel one with an Essex miniatures halberd/bill.
Again, left and right, two more old second hand repaired beastmen. One was headless, so I added a Skeleton Horde skull with green stuff eyes, and the other an Essex halberd.
The centre miniature is a Runequest Morokanth Adventurer.
Of all my 3rd Edtion armies, this Chaos Beastman one has the hightest proportion of non-citadel miniautres and odds and ends in.
These three are Alternative Armies models from 1991. On the left an Orc, and the other two are Dogmen.
Three night Horrors, Daemon, Werebear, and a Three-Headed mutant. I have added them to the army as I had nowhere else to put them, and did'nt want them to just sit in a box.
Converted standard bearer, old C38 Mounted Beastman (althuogh he's on a spare Half Orc's horse), and late 1980's Beastman.
C27 Chaos Goblin Mutants.
Horns, and Long Neck
Three-Eyes, and Plague.
Beast, and Twins!
Mace-tail, and Spiky Shaman.
Rear view, showing why they got thier names!
Hopper, and Winged.
As I was sorting Goblins out for the blog, I found my old Grenadier armoured Balrog/Demon, so thought I would post him too!
40 Goblin Warrior.
Next update I will photograph some more archers.
Standard bearer (complete with bird house!) from the command set. The leader is the Vile Goblin from BC2 Monster starter set. The Musician is a snotling.
On the left is a Harlequin Goblin with and axe.
Centre and right are C12 Goblins charmingly named Eye Gouger, and Slice.
Two Alternative armies Goblins, and another Harlequin Goblin.
Three Iron Claw Goblins.
Solid based C13 Night Goblins, Goblin fanatic with Boomerang, and Gigblad Childsplatter with Morningstar from the SS4 Goblin Raiding Pary boxed set.
Three more Iron Claw Goblins.
Three C12/late 1980's Goblins, the one on the right being named Splat.
The centre and right Goblins are both variation sculpts on each other, similar to the Goblin with shades from an earlier blog post. .
Goblin with Whiskers. Again, he is a variation sculpt, this time from the crew leader of the Lead Belcher set.
The other two are Snagga Goblins from Citadels 1980's Lord of the Rings Range.
Two more Goblin warriors, the centre one armed with the sling being named Zurig. The third is another Snagga Goblin.
Three more Iron Claw Goblins looking like they are about to get up to no good!
Three Goblins from the Javelinmen range.
Three Citadel swordsmen.
The centre one being Iron Claw.
Two more late 1980's Goblins, and on the right a very modern one, from Crooked Claw miniatures (also sculpted by Kev Adams).
...and finally not a goblin at all, but a Bugbear from Citadel/Ral Partha.
I just think he's looks better mixed in with the Goblins :)
