Legacy Project 2016 - Chaos Villagers (responsibleone wins)

The village had no name, or perhaps it had been forgotten. It lay deep in the chaos wastes and had few visitors bar chaos hordes tramping south, or the occasional Carnival of Nurgle. Each and every villager bore the taint of chaos - the woodsman with axes in place of arms, the porcine butcher, the snake-skinned apothecary. Even the cattle had 6-legs and the sheep had fleshless skulls. Yet village life continued. The young and the strong strode off with bows and their father's swords. Left behind were the old, the lame, the mothers and the children, tending thorned corn, tanning cockatrice leather, building houses from giant bones.

The 2016 Oldhammer Legacy Warband theme is C49 - Chaos Villagers.

How does this Legacy Warband thing work anyway?
All contributors agree to paint and contribute one model to the pre-agreed theme (Chaos Villagers - see below). You paint the model and post it to your friendly neighbourhood organiser (me - axiom). All contributors are entered into a draw, and the winner out of the hat wins the set of figures for their collection.

What's the timeframe involved?
Models to be with me (axiom) by Saturday 26th November 2016, with the draw taking place in 1st week in December (with the ambition to have the warband with the winner by Christmas).

What models can I contribute?
The theme is C49 - Chaos Villagers. An imaginary range of figures as a counter-point to the C46 Villagers. Think mutated peasants, deformed milk-maids, pigs and sheep tainted by chaos. Suitable models might include figures adapted from fantasy villager ranges, livestock or even militia or huntsmen...simply use your imagination and see what happens! The project is an Oldhammer project, but that doesn't mean you need to donate a vintage Citadel model - if you have something that looks right from a modern range or alternative manufacturer, then that's all well and good!

How will this warband look coherent?
Good question; by its nature, a rag-tag band of chaos villagers will be varied and individualistic...in fact that's probably part of the appeal with this theme. We are not imposing a particular colour scheme or spot colour this time - let your paint scheme be determined by the figure. A chaotic beggar may well be dressed in drab brown sackcloth. The beak-nosed Mayor of our chaos village may well be able to afford finer silk or velvet. Your swine-herd may sport a colourful patterned skin.

Basing: As for basing, we have agreed that the winner will do the basing for the warband. This will ensure that a) the warband is coherently based and b) the warband fits into their own collection. However, models should be provided on a square slottabase, with the slots filled with putty, greenstuff or similar, and painted black.

How do I take part?
This thread is where you formally stick your hand up and commit to participating. Simply reply to in the thread, stating what model you are likely to contribute (this can change at a later date), and I will amend the contributor list above.

Any questions?!

I reckon I'll do some kind of craftsmen, somebody has to make sure all the shelves are at the proper chaotic angles.
