Well I've not really done much since I ran out of time attempting to keep going with the ToXG, but my gaming group (DanJones87, FlayedOne583 and others not on the forum) havenow decided it's time to play Mordheim so I thought I would start a project log up for. I chose the Cult of the Possessed as I didn't want to have a duplicate warband to anyone else and the Skaven were already taken!
After some discussion with my group as to what models to use for the conversions, I decided to purchase myself a box of Flagellants and a box of Gors, and after a rummage through FlayedOne583's bits box, my own bits box and the addition of some green stuff and I was ready to go!
Without further ado here's some pics of them ready for priming:
The green stuff'ing isn't very good (especially the tentacles on the first mutant), if I'm honest it's probably my first proper use of it, and while it might not meet most peoples standards or tastes I'm satisfied with the results and it was a learning process for me and hopefully I'll be better next time. I'll be adding to the warband as the campaign moves along so it will be growing and fingers crossed my hobby skills will be improving!
Well, thanks for looking, any comments/critique? Hopefully have some progress with painting after I've worked the weekend,
Ciao for now,
Yay, Mordhiem! I liked the possessed, however the hats are odd. Kind of makes them look like want to be smurfs. I like the possessed, how are you "arming" the mutants?
Its a great beginning but I think Kuffy is right about the hoods, I think particularly on the beastman and mutants you need some kind of robe or clothing that the hood can attach too. I know its a bit late but you could play round with a hood having fallen off the head somewhat on one of the Brethren revealing the beginnings of a blessing from Chaos.
I figure that they wear the hoods to make operating within normal society (markets and what have you that even mutants need to attend) easier which is why I would do some kind of cloak or robe attached to it, there may be a different motivation behind the hoods however.
I agree with the above posters, abut ould also like to add a little extra piece of advice.
For being your first venture into the world of GS-ing I am impressed by your result. The Robes adviced earlier sounds good to mee.
when you start painting the GS-sculpts you'd notice how it differs from the pre-sculpted areas -one thing I found making them blend better together is to use a sharp knife to cut the edges of things like the hoods.
Just to tidy them up really.
Another thing i've learned is that the heads on gw-models look much better with a gs-hood on if you cut them heads down a bit before adding the gs.
Looking forward to seeing the warband painted
I agree with everything Andu has said. I'm not an amazing sculptor but the hoods would look a lot better if they weren't so expanded from the heads. It ruins the illusion slightly. Even cutting off large chunks off the side of the head so you can still use the cool horsemen helmets with a hood over the top would work fine. That being said I'm still really fond of whats going on here and would like to see more.
Wow great job!
Reminds me a little of the kkk
Life is a clay urn on the mantle
And I am scattered on the floor
We are the wounds and the great cold death of the earth. . .
Looking good! Nice to see some specialist games love here!

@Kuffy - They don't look so odd now there sprayed thankfully, probably will gain when painted though! One mutant is having dual maces and a scorpion tail, and the other has a hammer and tentacle, with the former being offensive and the latter supporting something more heavy hitting against things with more than one attack, well, that's the idea anyway!
dan - I will be stealing that tube tool off you soon enough for my Warp Lightning Cannon conversions!
Allonairre - My trail of thought was the Magister and brethren are part of a cult and they have the robes as part of the flaggelant model so look okay now sprayed, the mutants, beastmen and summoned possessed have joined the cult and have been forced to wear the hoods to show their allegience. Well that's my excuse anyways! I agree with you though, the hoods would go a lot better if they had robes on them aswell, but that is beyond my capabilities for now, the blessing is a good idea, might use it on my Darksouls, cheers
Andusciassus - If I do hoods in the future I think I will take your advice and trim the heads down, although for the rest of the warband I won't to keep them looking the same, will try trimming the edges on the next lot as I agree pre-sculpted is a lot sharper than my GS attempts.
omgitsduane - Cheers mate, as i said above I will trim the heads in future projects but not for this to keep them uniform. Hopefully have some more pics up soon!
Robtuner - ha ha, I prefer the link to the KKK more than the Smurfs for the scariness and cult factor, although I will try and steer away from this look with the paint scheme for obvious reasons
Gedderz - Cheers pal, the specialist games are my favourite tbh, with Blood Bowl being by far and away my favourite, got some Night Runners to convert into a Skaven team later in the year and really looking forward to it!
Well, thanks for all the comments guys, just wanted to give a reply to them and to say that I have taken them onboard. No more pictures as all I have managed to get done is the undercoat as the Mrs has got me working on a project in the house, but hopefully get some paint on them soon!
Thanks again for the comments,
