Cult of the Possessed

From just a fun little blackcrabart challenge between friends, warband is in the makings!

Me, Helge from Wilhelminiatures, Rebecca (Revimakk) and Erik (Nordic) had a little challenge with one of the blackcrabart miniatures. This was my take;

Using a forest dweller from Wilhelminiatures as the base model, the head and arms from the blackcrabart mini and a lot of greenstuff I made this. However he was so much fun to make that I felt he needed a couple of henchmen.

The first one was an idea I saw on insta (sorry, can’t remember from who) where an orc body and a halfling head was used. Very easy but really cool. Gives a very «off» physique. I’ve stopped using metallics and it really showes here. Love the effect and this turned out to become a key feature as I developed this into something more.

On this mini I used the top half from one of those crazy bretonnia minis that where super cool. Spliced it on top of a blight King and voila. Weird ass physique again. This really started to set the tone for me as the on a distance and on the outside «look normal». But ad you see them up close you realize they are far far from it.

I now realized that the closest thing – and something I’ve never done before was on its way. A mordheim warband and obviously it has to be a Cult of Possessed. The big one a magister and the other two mutants.

So with three such fun minis under my belt I started on the beastmen next.

The first one I made as a bird type of beastman. Much like a tzaangor yes but a lot more tuned down. Using only the tzaangor head and some Underworlds bits to complete the mini. I now know that beastmen can’t have missile weapons but ah well. It is all good 😉

The second one is more of a narnia style faun – without the goat legs mind! This is actually from a very old build that was meant for my Nurgle project but I swapped the head and this mini was good.

The third and last (yes yet another bow equipped beastman 😂) is a mereman. Using the Silver Tower fish, a lizardmen torso and aos priest legs this one was cool enough. It is a really weird mini but I like it.

Now for another big one – and it is the biggest yet! A possessed 😍

I just had a ton of fun with this one! Combining a lot of kits and a mini ton of greenstuff I made something suitably horrid and grim that still fits really well in with the rest.

Hope you like the start of my newest warband! I will round it out with another possessed and darksouls. Those will be over the holidays mind 😅

I have two more blog posts planned for desember so stay tuned for that. The blog is far from dead!

Nestorian Infestation #39

Viscount Petr Blavaskoy..

Created a new character for Nestorian Infestation based around the excellent walking bonechair model from the Ossiarch Bonereapers range and the head from the Janus model in Wilhelminiatures range. Throw in a few bits and some greenstuff and hey presto – here (something) it is!

In short he is a minor noble in the Matriarchs court. Minor in status but not of confidence nor ambition. I will explore more of his followers as we move on.

Daudur #1

On the barren land

Lies the barren form

Smooth and endless

Again

It almost is but isn’t.

With silent noise

Like a subtle cut through deep water

With feeble sunlight

Filtering through

They descend
