Fimarines

At the request of Mr Papafakis (Optimus):
Space Fimir pirate raiders (Fimarines) of the Red Skulls crew show up uninvited at the party, their poor depth perception more than made up for by mostly toting rusty power armour, power fists, energy weapons and bolt pistols with +2 to hit. Inspired by Curtis Fell (HT for showing me the similarity between beakie helmets and fimir heads) and the upcoming Space Fomorian from Diego Serrate, I thought I'd get ahead of the game and create his warband before he shows up on my doorstep. Also Ornithopter to hop these guys into the fray (thanks Aidan Baxter and Curtis Fell again). I used wire and green stuff to create some tails to pop out the back of those rectangular plates at the back of the beakie body base (I imagine the plates have hinges on for when they want to suit-up!). Hence the tail display in the middle...very Braveheart. Thanks also to Mark Evans for sending me some Chilled Monkey Brains Fimir heads...check em out if you haven't seen 'em. [Interestingly, the beakie hands usually used for cradling the bolters can be painted easily to look like having just 3 fingers and a thumb...and the normal beakie fists can be filed down easily too. Number of toes on the feet solved neatly by power-armour boots...]

Re: Fimarines

Thanks for posting them up Paul, they look great!

With the heads, did you modify them at all or just paint them to look like a helmet?

And the insignia, is that a freehand job or a transfer?

Top job :D

Re: Fimarines

Hiya! And thanks for the encouragement :-) The heads are from Chilled Monkey brains...its a straight swap out for an old beakie marine head, then painted as you would a Fimir head. The Red Skulls symbols on the shoulder pads are freehand, not a transfer. I'll be popping a beakie body and fimir head on your jet-bike and then painting it these colours with a Red Skulls grafitto on the side somewhere :-)

Re: Fimarines

That's a heck of an idea there and very well done! There's someone else as really ought to see this. Oh Fimm . . . found your 40K calling? It's a Fimir smackdown duel to the swampy death! And we won't think about what happens after. ;-) Very well done indeed lornalim. And I love your emblems.

Re: Fimarines

That's a great ornithopter, straight out of RT.

The giant fly, the single eye. I'm getting a slight Nurgle vibe off these.

Re: Fimarines

This is so cool! The concept is pure genius, and the paintjob is cracking, I love all of it. I saw that Ornithopter in the BOYL pics, I do need one!!

Re: Fimarines

Sweet. These weird proportioned power armour are perfect for alien bodies.
Also, sweet to see that weathered look on old miniatures. Custom aircraft is nice too.

Re: Fimarines

Hi all, thanks so much for all your kind comments...I tend to hang out on FB so I only check here every now and again. Anyway, here is a new model for the force...Fimm warlord on suped up jetbike, with power maul and flamer. Including heads of three different species and a baggie of offal, hands and feet. Some inspiration taken from Reavers in Firefly. Bike specially cast by Mr Papafakis (http://papafakis.blogspot.co.uk/…/the-castings-done-dude.ht…). Arms and tail from Geoff Solomon-Sims' recent Myeri set. Head from Mark Evans. Orc, Kroot and Squat head from various sets. A most enjoyable kitbash for my Red Skulls Space Fimir pirate warband.
