Woo, my TK Army! My aim for this army was to try and do lots of conversions, even if basic ones, to make my army unique, but to still keep the Tomb Kings army feel, rather than a crazy themed army. The underlying motif of my army is the vulture. So my king has a pet vulture, and my important banners are made from (scratch-built) vulture skeletons. Somewhat surprisingly, I don't actually have any Carrion yet
First off, my hierophant/Liche priest. The top half is the mounted liche priest body, and the legs are from a tomb guard model, manipulated.
Next up is my Tomb King. Just a normal Tomb King on foot, but I converted the sword so it is two-handed, ala Great Weapon. He also has the vulture from the ssc on his shoulder.
Here is a pic of the King in his unit. They are normal skellies, but I am using them as tomb guard. I haven't made a banner for them yet, and a few of the skellies are broken or missing pieces. I'll get around to it... The army colour scheme is brownish bone, blue/purple, bronze, and a touch of green here and there. The weapons and metals are yet to be painted on this unit; haven't decided whether to go the safe way and use metallic paints, or go NMM...
Close up of the unit champion:
And now my favourite model in my army, my scratch-built Tomb Scorpion The legs are from some tyranid model, the claws also from tyranids (i think the carnifex?). The tail is the games workshop giant scorpion, the body is greenstuf and random bone parts like horse ribcages, and the liche priest inside is from the screaming skull catapult. I am yet to make another two
Lastly some pics of some light horsemen, which I converted to be camel-riders. I don't think the ancient egyptians actually used camels, but wateva; way cooler than horses. These guys aren't actually in my army at the moment as TK horsemen are... TK horsemen. Nuff said. The unit also has a banner bearer who is suitably tooled up enough to be a mounted Battle Standard Bearer.
I also have a Screaming skull catapult which is pretty basic so doesn't need a picture until I paint it, and some archers which are incomplete.
I've also ordered some pieces to scratch-build a Casket of Souls. It is going to be a pretty major build, even more-so than my Scorpion. I'll post a tutorial of how I do it when I am done
Nice stuff, I particularly like the Scorpion conversion. Keep it up!
One little thing, have you considered giving a quick wash/highlight to your green? I think it would really help making them stand out more.
WEEEEEEEEEEE! The parts for my casket just arrived!!
I got them from Reaper miniatures; I love their range!
Check out some pics
The idea is that the casket is being powered/harnessed by the corpse of a dead king (much like how a tomb scorpion is powered by a dead liche). So there will be the king on the throne at the back, then I will have a massive casket in front of him, and then the base will be surrouned by skulls and skellies.
As you can see, the king comes off the throne; I will magnetise it or bluetac it or something, so that when the casket liche dies (ie, him) I can just remove the king easy peasy.
The other two models were purchased for the skeletons, which will look alive, reaching out of the ground, and I will greenstuff eery flames or spirits around them.
The hot mage, dunno what I can do with her; maybe i'll make a hot liche
As for the casket itself, I was thinking of getting one from hasslefree:
Pack - Sarcophagus (c)
Pack - Sarcophagus (a)
Pack - Sarcophagus (b)
And just when I was building my motivation to do assignments! HA!
And thanks for the feedback LoreSeeker! I hope to get some painting done soon
Sounds fairly nice! Make sure it really is so!
As for the casket, I'd say either C or B, don't really like model A.
The bloody assignments...I know them well enough, just standing in the way when you try to do some serious hobby!
