And so I did.
I spent Saturday afternoon, and most of Sunday afernoo/evening painting, varnishing, and basing, hence the late in the day blog update.
Finally finished the The Army of Soulflayer Peelbone.
I have taken a few pictures of the complete army, but not of each miniature as I have photographed a lot of them on a previous update. I did'nt get around to photogrphing any Goblins, but don't worry there will be Goblins for the next update.
Next project will probably be making a start on finishing off either the Wood Elves or Dark Elves.
The Army of Soulflayer Peelbone:
Side view. I tried to get the colours as close as possible to the photo in Warhammer Armies and the view in the cabinet on Eldrich Epistles blog photo.
Mad Jakkel, Chaos Sorcerer.
I like the flowing robes and random 'wizard stuff' on his belt. He is the second in command, a Level 15 Wizard.
...when I was sorting through boxes of odds and ends I found the miniature they used for Doomweaver Goreblast, although not his horse. So I gave him a spare one I had, and I have 3 spare points to buy him the horse in the list, and I'll paint him up as soon as possible.
Poor old Mad Jakkel may end up retired before he starts, or relocated to the my Chaos Warrior Army ( I wonder if it will make him madder?).
Ral Partha Gorgon
Rear view, showing the tail rattle.
He's a big miniature. To give you an idea, he is mounted on a modern GW chariot base.
Two Reaper Gargoyles being used as stand-in Harpies.
I like them better than the Iron Claw Ones.
Unknown creature, maybe RAFM, used as a Chaos Hound.
Doombellow the Deathsteer.
Unit of 5 Minotaurs, composed of Citadel Minotaurs.
I have used the same base colours as the beastmen for all the Minotaurs, Vallejo Grey-green.
Minotaur Lord, Level 5 Hero unit leader.
Two Minotaurs, looking angry.
Two more of the Citadel Minotaurs.
I prefered the look of the Citadel Minotaurs.
The other unit of 5 Minotaurs, comprised of Marauder Miniatures.
Level 5 hero unit leader.
I was never too impressed with the Marauder Minotaurs. When they are usually painted they look too friendly and the sculpts seem too' rounded'.
I tried to paint them as less 'happy' as possible.
The other two Minotaurs.
20 Beastmen, with double handed weapons.
With the Beastmen, whilst I kept to a basic palette of Grey-Green flesh and dark brown for the fur, I did try to add colour and individuality to each miniature without ruining the overall uniform feel.
Unit leader, using a Reaper Deamon miniature.
I love the Sword.
Realm of Chaos Beastman on the left, and Ogbash Facesplitter from the White Dwarf Personalites Box Set.
Two Realm of Chaos Beastmen.
The one on the right is a variant on the basic sculpt on the left.
Two more variants on the miniatures above.
The flail on the one on the left is tipped with tiny skulls.
The Mutant Goblin (see, there is one Goblin in the update!) from the BC4 Mighty Ugezod's Death Commandos.
The other one is a Realm of Chaos Crocodile headed Beastman.
Two Realm of Chaos Beastmen.
20 Beastmen with Halberds.
Two Slaaneshi Beastmen.
One Realm of Chaos Beastman, and an Iron Claw Beastman.
Mounted Beastman Hero, and Iron Claw Spearman
20 Beastmen with hand weapons, light armour, and shields.
Two Slaaneshi Beastmen, the one on the right is the unit leader.
Realm of Chaos Beastman, and an old C38 Beastman, named Mantis Man.
Two more Realm of Chaos Beasmen.
Realm of Chaos Beatman, and C38 Beastman, strangely with a Jelly Fish motive on his shield. He's a variant on the Fishman Beastmen they made.
20 more Beastmen with hand weapons, light armour, and shields.
Two C27 Beastemen, a repaired version of Tenacle Arm, acting as unit leader, and Guzgog. The leader looks like a Slann who has turned to Chaos.
Two more Realm of Chaos era Beastmen. The one of the rights weapons snapped off, so he's wielding a RTB 101 Space Marine knife.
Khornate Beastman, and Rhino headed Beastman from the Realm of Chaos era.
Two Imperial Guard Rogue Trader Beastmen from 1989. The one of the right has had his sword replaced with a shield.
I took an army shot photograph on the shelf below, and whilst not clear, it gives a better impression of the colourfulness of the army.
Iron Maiden Beer.
Really nice, and drunk it whilst updating the blog :)
I would like to do an army based on Iron Maidens Eddie. I have some old Victrix British and some undead bits, but will focus on 3rd Edition Warhammer for now!
