Howdy everyone, I was thinking about making a BoC army using.. plastic Kroot models, the army would be Tzeentch themed, and I figured because the kroot bear such a resemblance to birdies, using them for Gors/ungors would make the army look pretty cool. (The Kroot would form the base of my Beastherds..)
I'm not sure how I would seperate Gor's and ungors, maybe through puttywork, also I would use Krootox heads for the larger models, such as minotaurs etc.
For giants I would have to sculp my own to follow the Kroot like pattern, or perhaps use the Forge world 'Large krootox' or whatever it is.
Any thoughts? Ideas?
I was looking to that myself a while back, but I haven't started yet. Please let me know how it turns out!
Yep, It's too bad that the Kroot bodies come on the same sprues as the arms, otherwise I could save a bit more. I'll be posting updates as soon as it begins to look good haha.Originally Posted by version9
what about tyranids? the Tyranid warriors could be minotaurs (i think they have about the same size. please correct me if im wrong). and the Hormagaunt and Termagants could be used as beast heards. and a Carnifex as a Giant!
yeah, the kroots sound like they would work really well as BoC. how are you going to make the arms?? and is it only the beast herds that you will make with Kroot??
Gah I might just paint up my chaos and sell them >.<Originally Posted by ^Shadow-Stalker
But If I dont, then I would use Kroot models as a beastherd, then convert some into bestigors perhaps. (Putty)
The arms would just be regular old beast arms, and about the 'Nids - the reason for doing a BoC out of Kroot is for the bird like appearance, as Tzeentch always has an affiliation with birds, but your idea is a really good one for chaos, that would be very interesting as well.
thanks. i can see your point about Tzeentch.
where should i get the bases from? i will need quite a lot of 25x25 mm bases. i have a few lying in my bitz box, but not enough to make an army of. the only problem with the nids are that í have allready bought a Beast herd.
They should sell them in packs of like 50 bases or so, check your local store.Originally Posted by ^Shadow-Stalker
yeah, ok... thank you. im making a nurgle army. the gaunts will be used as pestigor and the ripper swarms are nurglings. then i will use the carnifex as a giant, and something medium sized for a beastlord. i wont use them as wargors, because i really like the model with the 2 axes.
mabe the warriors will be used as minotaurs, mabe not. i havent desided yet, because both models are awesome.
