Minotaur Warband - Can I finish it by next year?

I was browsing through WD 125 when I encountered the Minotaur warband article, one of the tasters for Lost and the Damned. I decided that given the presence of a few minotaurs in my "needs sorting / broken" lead pile this would be a grand next project. So I rolls up a warband and got :-

A Lvl 5 Bloodkine as Champion

3 Minotaurs

5 Beastmen

A centaur

and a monster because "minotaurs - are more likely to encounter such creatures than other champions"

Great thought I what goodies shall I have with my Khorne Minotaur warnband? I rolled 71 "An undead Champion and D6 skeles" Hmm does this seem like a good idea?

My question at this point for the forum is is it? Do I try to put together this undead group? I have a minotaur skele there may be other beastman type skeles about but Khorne and undead champs seems odd. Or do I do the other thing and choose a monster I already have and like the idea of like chaos hounds?

Any and all comments and advice encouraged. Pictures of progress will hopefully follow.

Fenris Games do a few undead beastmen as part of their "Draugr" range.

Thanks for that possibly too zombieish but perhaps.

Blood for the blood god, skulls for the throne of Khorne. And all that. SOme blood soaked undead would be fun, maybe even with head swaps and the like. You could even theme it with a necromancer in your warband. Im not saying give anyone magic powers, but you could make a fun centaur deathwizard chaos thing. His only power is having the undead champion and D6 skellies. Put loads of skulls on all your models and bases so that the actual skeletons match the rest of the warband?

Ah now that would work, lots of skulls for the Skull Throne!!! and varying degrees of degeneration. So next thing who's got broken beast men to convert?

What about headless undead so the skull went to the throne, rest of the body kept going. You could either have blatantly headless or have empty hoods.

Re: Minotaur Warband - Can I finish it by next year?

The first minotaur in the warband is finished, probably. Is he a bit big considering he's not the champion?

Lack of skulls on the base may only be temporary I am seriously considering an undead skull theme as suggested by wise members of the group especially as I could buy the huge bag of skulls GM sell.

Meanwhile a question. What head for my minotaur champion?

Options are (1) the skeletal head from the minotaur lords http://www.solegends.com/citcat1991b/cat1991bp296minotaurlords-01.htm
(2) the one I have in the picture
(3) the head of a bloodthirster as he can have chaos gifts.

Re: Minotaur Warband - Can I finish it by next year?

Progress continues on the warband. I'm still considering the head for the champion but meanwhile another minotaur.

He's a Marauder MM42 Minotaur who'd lost an arm which was replaced with a plastic orc one with a cleaver, seemed suitably Khornate. The colour is based on the Tzeetch minotaur in WD 124 but redder of course.

I've also completed the skeletal squad but they will probably be gradually replaced by suitable minotaur/ beastman skeleton types when I find them.

and this is the skeletal champion
