Hey everyone,

So a while ago I set up a blog on here to log my progress with my Beastclaw Raiders. With that army largely finished I've been on and off with some warcry and some 40k but with the sweet new Sons of Behemat model previews I've decided to jump back on the destruction train for starters, here are some pictures of my Aleguzzler gargant with a giants causeway themed base. I need to do a few highlights on the banners and shields, maybe I'll try some freehand.

I've also got some more Mawtribes, Warclans, Rippa's Snarlfangs and even some Fimir on the way.

Let me know what you think!

Very nice, I cannot wait to see what you do the SoB, as the gargant already looks really great!

Thanks! I'm really pleased with the scheme and can't wait to see how it looks on the larger guys.

 

In other news I've completed a test model for some ironjawz. Let me know what you think.

Managed to get a lot painted this week. Starting with ,my repainted and rebased Fimir to match my Giant. I need to finish the Nobles cape as it is currently just basecoated and probably some touch ups that I'll notice once I post this!

I also managed to finish up my Orruk brutes. I had a lot of fun painting these and will probably add to this force in the future.

Finally I've been working on some Destruction themed humans as a bit of a thought experiment. The one at the back has a wild rider head and the one on the right has a blood bowl wood elf head. Let me know what you think.

Gnoblars! And other things... 

I'm currently working on 10 Bonesplitterz Moarboyz but don't have any pictures of them currently. For now I've got some wips of the gnoblars from Hrothgorns Mantrappers and a few other bits. To differentiate them from my regular grots I went for a blue/grey skin tone as if they have adapted to life close to the everwinter, plus the idea of those beady red eyes staring at you from within a blizzard sounds quite terrifying! They need some touch ups and I need to paint the ice effect on the club. I also need to apply snow, but I'll finish everything else first and do it all in a big batch.

Polish_20200506_185831002.jpg.ac1c931bd89cfe987aa18a3d6948fdea.jpgPolish_20200506_185903693.jpg.bffec4035f925fd738217bebf130e1f0.jpgPolish_20200506_185952928.jpg.1a69d92fa43b49dc9a4789a8d907ed69.jpgPolish_20200506_190017801.jpg.523194ca8b061970c56b6017e49169c7.jpg

 

Some progress on my human destruction idea. If I progress these guys into an army I'll probably use them as cities of sigmar but for now I'm happy to see where this goes. Still quite WIP I'm also quite pleased with how the bases have turned out and on the next few I'll try to add some more foliage and plants for variety. Polish_20200506_190045710.jpg.cb3782d1aea6960b5d91c9cd6d3fb8a8.jpgPolish_20200506_190120838.jpg.c88181da4968546ab3d2567853287c25.jpgPolish_20200506_190206552.jpg.30c4598b6c202381832a0d6f42219261.jpg

 

Lastly, after a little digging in a box under my sofa I found these two! These models are some of my favourite sculpts and I'm looking forward to painting them up. I think I'll use the Dark Emissary as a Fungoid Cave Shaman as he ties in visually with the Fimir. Not sure if I'll use the Truthsayer for anything, but he'll be fun to paint up regardless.

More work on the mantrappers, this time on the cat. I've tried to create a snow leopard look which took ages, but I'm very happy with. Now I just need to finish up the straps and paint the base. Tomorrow I plan to paint Hrothgorn, then it's on to the snow.

The man (Ogor?) himself. I've really tried to rough up the leather on this guy and will carry the style across onto the frost sabre. Tomorrow I'm hoping to get the Metallics finished then it's onto the basing!Polish_20200513_190456386.jpg.501b6f87c2fc6da2a32445b15e35fa5b.jpgPolish_20200513_185532337.jpg.695e7df40dd22ff322a7e9b0923d7d8b.jpgPolish_20200513_185736833.jpg.70109e310ff97236d3d454b475bc19da.jpgPolish_20200513_190134712.jpg.f82a31bdb340454f5cd41066b87e1a76.jpg

Very well done!

Truthsayer finished up. Still working on the base but I was excited to show this guy off! I'll be basing him in the same way as the other humans further up in the thread but I might make them a little more swampy/boggy instead of 'lost jungle city'. Polish_20200518_151815094.jpg.db0c570ecdea5e8af1dda9e488665dc9.jpgPolish_20200518_152212083.jpg.4942a92d7e1d00e0d34d97666b4eaec1.jpgPolish_20200518_152517873.jpg.cccf675e588784e542a7a682dfc5bc19.jpgPolish_20200518_151941028.jpg.a23b45b55493baa27804de072909d28e.jpg

I had a bit of a dip in productivity as I waited for orders to arrive for my cities of destruction force which I'm currently referring to as Ghurite Wyldwalkers; which seems fairly catchy. The truthsayer is finished up and so is a wizard on Griffon. Alongside these I've got a unit of greatswords, 2 more wizards, some pistoliers and a unit of freeguild guard with spears. These are mostly wip shots while I wait for greenstuff and rattle cans. Let me know what you think.

Truthsayer:Polish_20200612_120858989.jpg.4f1d956cb6c1148a8836aeabcaf57dc6.jpgPolish_20200612_120946006.jpg.8c8b857f7c3ada657814d194d337267e.jpg

 

Battlemage on Griffon:Polish_20200612_120637444.jpg.4fbac5be600fa5658029baa6fc430492.jpgPolish_20200612_120806289.jpg.ee4b8b8eb49cc862349efa2865dc58a2.jpg

 

Battlemage 1. Primarily built from the godsworn hunt leader,  with a little bloodbowl wood elves and sisters of the thorn:Polish_20200612_121420032.jpg.9c04af1d70b241022cbcf91861dbb94b.jpg

 

Battlemage 2. This one uses parts from the old ghur battlemage with godsworn hunt legs and untamed beast torso:Polish_20200612_121256089.jpg.573f581a2301d854857cc4ba80a8088c.jpgPolish_20200612_121317979.jpg.8fb6f8fc9e0ee14d6751dca83f2b5d30.jpg

 

A pair of greatswords. These are all built using the untamed beasts and marauder horseman kits:Polish_20200612_121112334.jpg.759f4f6d416c0bd0417d4eba92934711.jpgPolish_20200612_121148975.jpg.3febe12baf5966406c5b460c2eca31ca.jpg

 

Sergeant of the spear unit. The rest of this unit is built from the untamed beasts plainsrunners and ungor weapons. I wanted the unit leader to have a bit more bulk to stand out:Polish_20200612_121224634.jpg.d23263a596a75a5787c42930d4bd8d52.jpg

 

Lastly, the first of my pistoliers. I still need to greenstuff saddles for these guys and maybe some reins...:Polish_20200612_121029296.jpg.aea643e4e18078e47006dd9c54907165.jpg

In all honesty you wouldn’t need to put a saddle or reins on the boar.  Many equine traditions didn’t use leads or stirrups to guide the horse but rather trained them to respond to pressure from the riders’ legs or certain verbal commands.  Savage Boar riders were designed with this in mind and the same could certainly be said of humans doing the same thing.

You're right, there is certainly a historic precedent and it will look cool and fit the theme much better!

Got some greenstuffing done on another gargant and Huskard on Thundertusk. Both of these models have a very 'old dude' vibe. The gargant isn't a new idea, but it's one I've always liked and I'm quite happy with how he's turned out.

Polish_20200706_103705985.jpg.939f6d50f906c5bcae5d59f5a2ada2e5.jpgPolish_20200706_103748590.jpg.51347d698d0a79e9607d1259ebb9c93f.jpgPolish_20200706_103820565.jpg.3b28e7caea70f08ff8ecfbff1e00742c.jpgPolish_20200706_103842851.jpg.d4462e9f101f4fac23bd65c61a9c0185.jpg

 

The Huskard is a refinement of the idea I started with my original Huskard on Thundertusk who was very shamanic. In my mind, this guy is the leader of the Torr, and the first is his apprentice or something. I wanted to give the impression that he's so old, fat and frail that he can no longer even get off of his mount, instead performing his duties from the back of the Thundertusk. The tusks are from the Ironblaster kit as is the platform and supports.

Ggggargant! Finally slapped some paint on this guy. I'm going for a greener skin for this one and the next step is attempting to texture the skin in an effort to represent age (wrinkles etc.) I'm hoping he'll be finished in the next few days.Polish_20200723_175301713.jpg.ea7b9893f29f7be7e539606dc921b828.jpgPolish_20200723_175326365.jpg.4cd756eba713f55f265c968fb569abce.jpg

 

I had an idea for a gloomspite gitz army from the realm of Hysh that used lots of creams for their robes in mockery of the Lumineth Realmlords. This is also the first time that  I've used heavy weathering  on a model and really like the effect it gives to the cloth and metals. Polish_20200724_170434568.jpg.aec1d9847787496998984bf8a060b1ff.jpgPolish_20200724_170507467.jpg.270a09621c9aa313fccf291ae30e678d.jpgPolish_20200724_170536774.jpg.279259109fd88ea7774c32d7a42ef40c.jpgPolish_20200724_170608792.jpg.2c2111b742968fc506c0438c8d69a06a.jpg

More bits!

 

First there's the Gargant all finished up. Since we know that the Sons of Behemet are coming soon I'm holding off on the base for now incase there's a base size change.

Polish_20200806_211151267.jpg.ce8bfa0a4310aa1ae80fd28725b3e0e0.jpgPolish_20200806_211212087.jpg.6ee43b7c62262f19b2c62e2e32ef055f.jpgPolish_20200806_211231923.jpg.4f91ef0c68fcda641e05745fba2f5b5e.jpg

 

I've also been working on my little army of Ironjawz to add to my initial 5 man brute squad. So far I have a Maw Crusha, Megaboss, 10 ardboyz and a Weirdnob painted up or P.I.P.

Also started work on a 2nd weirdnob shaman Polish_20200806_210950252.jpg.6ca924d64fc7575943a6f7e708fed85a.jpgPolish_20200806_211044476.jpg.16286a92ee8117c0defbab9945535815.jpgPolish_20200806_211124984.jpg.49aa552fd192c0b9ccc78926b139058e.jpg
