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!

    Good to see you’re still in action mate, and you know this is just the kind of weird, grubby, gribbly stuff I love! 😀

    What the hell am I looking at?! And why on earth do I like it?! I’m taking the rest of the day off to talk to my shrink!

  5. So, so good man. I’ve always loved your style.
