It's been a long time since I updated. I did a couple of mages/wizards and then got distracted by Necromunda. However, Carrion Empire has brought me back to the Realm of Ghur!
The Realm of Ghur. Eastern Reaches. From the writings of Herr Jaeger.
In the icy wasteland north of Kislavia rises a new faction. The Blisterskin. These ghoulish creatures swept in through the Gate of Aqshy and bring their religion of fire and warmth to the frigid wastes. They travel in a nomadic manner. Led by the Prophet, a winged beast with ebon flesh and the Saint, who many say is more human than he appears.
The caravan of ghouls are protected by the blessed knights, great winged ghouls that scout the surroundings and keep a lookout from above. The most gallant of these warriors will adorn themselves with the bones of both ferocious foe and fallen friends.
The majority of the caravan consists of lesser ghouls. These tend to fall into two categories; the militant and the civilian. The militant types will be festooned with various make-shift weapons and follow the largest of their kind. The civilian type will carry out the same sort of functions civilians of other races carry out. Some of these civilian ghouls will even carry and sell relics, meat or drink, advertising their services in a morbid and grotesque fashion.
These ghouls are based on the Blisterskin faction. The pictures have not come out well. The light was far too bright!
A closeup of the speckled pattern on one ghoul's back.
A ghoul warrior, wearing a fallen Kislavia Freeguilder's helmet and wielding a magnificent club (bone).
A ghoul contemplating mortality, or perhaps talking to the skull of his old friend. Who knows?
The Crypt Ghoul boss, wearing the skull of a defeated foe and carrying a book of scripture. I don't think he can read though, but none of his followers know that!
My favourite conversion! A glimpse into civilian ghoul life! He is inspired somewhat by the Resident Evil 4 merchant. 'What'cha buyin friend? Got relics of all kinds here!'
The pack of warrior ghouls!
Crypt Flayers! I love the models, but hate their original poses. I spent hours working out some interesting poses for these two. I love the pointy finger on the left Flayer, and I didn't scuplt it! It actually comes on the actual model!
Another angle of the same two.
I have some more of these fellows in the works. Hopefully I can get them done soon!
