Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part XIV

Let's get ready for the remaining two miniatures of the summer project. These do not actually belong to the Hooves and Fur project and are "just padding" to have 18 miniatures for the challenge (18 miniatures in 3 months).

As you can see from my first post on these two, I went for regular Ungors from the Middlehammer Beastman range. Both were sculpted by Alan Perry.

I went for the regular black primer along with a stronger white dry brush to pick up the details and have better orientation on the model.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part XII

The wash has dried on the base colours and I had this to work on. Once again I am quite surprised by the decent result you get by a simple wash.

Anyhow, that isn't my personal claim, so I added further highlights, pretty much the same way I did with the Gors in the other two batches (Part V and Part VIII). Have to say, I am not that happy about the sculpts, compared to the older models the miniatures would have benefited from being two parts or more open posed. For example the hunched bestigor is missing details on the left side of his face and I'll have to freehand a bit on there. Beyond that, the black lining using Dark Tone has helped me a lot. And the close up pictures help me to see better the details that need some further attention, like the clean-up on the belts and studs.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part XI

The third and final block of the summer project overs two Bestigors, a Minotaurus, the Beastmen Chieftain and two bonus Nurgle Ungors, that I already prepared in the last update of Hooves and Fur.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part X

I have finished the first and second block of Hooves and Fur, and now going for the third and final batch of beastmen.

As the scope of the warband was defined and set to 16 miniatures, I need two more to tackle the summer project challenge of 18 miniatures in 3 months. So set this project into perspective, the beastmen are the undivided part of my greater Realm of Chaos project, which covers a mixed warband for each of the four chaos gods. Mixed meaning, not only covering chaos warriors, but all kinds of servants of the dark gods. Unfortunately there are only a few proper banner men for the mortal chaos, so I had to be creative about this.

And I thought, that two ungors would be a good fit for the Nurgle warband, as a banner bearer and musician. But I couldn't keep them like this. So after preparing the miniatures, taking care of the mould lines and putting them on a base, I went on to prepare a conversion.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part VIII

Back on topic with Hooves and Fur. The wash has dried and so I can add the highlights and further shades and details on to the beastmen herd.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part VII

After finishing block 1 of 6 regular beastmen incl. a champion, I can start with the second block for the summer project - a challenge of painting 18 miniatures in 3 months, in blocks of 6.

So for block 2 I went with 4 ungors and two characters, another champion and a shaman. If you're wondering for the rather random assortment and the round bases. I talked about that in the very first article about Hooves and Fur. These are not meant for Warhammer, but for some smaller skirmishes and thus I just need some named models and a few different types of warriors.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part VI

Block #1 for the summer project is ready and done! The first 6 beastmen of the Hooves and Fur warband are done.

I finished the shields in a very worn down look, gave the long fur / hair a final highlight with Army Painter Necrotic Flesh WP1108 and added flock to the bases, with Army Painter Battlefields Steppengrass.

Realm of Chaos – Hooves and Fur Part V

It is day 16 of the summer project's first block - 15 days to go and what is the current status quo?

Well, after applying the base colours in the last step, Hooves and Fur Part IV, so step 1.5 would be clean up and washes.
