I have indeed and swapped a couple of heads, and modded a few weapons.

Re: The "How to do Oldhammer" Thread

Finished at last! I have managed to finish off my warband. I'm not up to developing a bit of background for them perhaps with my next project.

First up the banner holder for the chaos warriors, a converted Chaos Marine from Space Crusade.

Image

Image

This is the leader of this warband a rescued chaos warrior who had lost an arm and now has a dark eldar organic / mechanical tentacle. He is actually much bluer in the flesh.

Image

Image

This is the complete warriors and goblins.

Image

Image

And finally the warband.

Image

I've really enjoyed the project especially with the constraints, I'll go on to my next better prepared. The question is what to do next? Should I start my small animals warband or as it is Orktober start my Hyborks?

All comments and suggestions encouraged.

Re: The "How to do Oldhammer" Thread

I like the bright colours on the Chaos Warriors!

I also like the idea of replacing the helmet orb with a skull. I might borrow this idea myself...
Something in my aspect and speech seemed to excite vague fears and aversions in everyone I met, as if I were a being infinitely removed from all that is normal and healthful.

Yes a very chaotic one at that! I was practicing using washes and inks and went a bit overboard - is that possible with a chaos warband?

Re: The "How to do Oldhammer" Thread

TBH when I saw each figure individually I thought "meh" but en mass the warband looks fantastic. Exactly what a lot of us wanted to achieve as wee nippers, a cohesive and striking warband packed with conversions and original ideas. Rainbow of chaos and goblin cultists? Slaanesh FTW!

Thanks for the comments, they do look better en masse. The next warband will be featured in the showcase or WIP threads. I suppose it should be WIP as all my stuff seems to be a WIP :D

Re: The "How to do Oldhammer" Thread

here's another batch, all in production figures to the best of my knowledge: terezinya and familiar by reaper (picked up from spirit games by mail order as most of my metal reaper miniatures have been) and the fenryl ark 009 armee squelettes (purchased from battlefield berlin).
