Greetings Terrans, how goes it? I’m still playing catch-up on the painting that has been going on in the background, so here’s another photo dump… Strap in :-)
I mentioned in the last post that I had managed to squeeze in a couple of games of Warcry around April time, and so had a couple of rolls on the followers table. One of those produced the Skaven I shared in part 6, but the second roll actually turned into 2 rolls (legit – one of the results is ‘roll twice on the followers table’!), and I managed another pair of Beastmen and 4 Harpies…
The Beastmen were easy enough – I have plenty of Tzaangors kicking around so I used a pair of them, though annoyingly, I rolled generic Beastmen rather than power-specific ones… I could’ve ‘cheated’, but you know how precious Tzeentch is about his plans, so I just took the hint, looked at it as a modelling challenge and went with it. Luckily, the Tzaangors are quite amenable to a simple face swap:
Next, I looked at the Harpies – unfortunately, not something that exists in AoS these days! The Chaos Furies were pretty close and I could’ve just gone with them, but again, I chose to follow Tzeentch’s master plan & did some converting with some female Elf heads and Greenstuff:
I also had a Fomoroid Crusher that my pal got me for my birthday, so that big fella got a good painting too! It was great fun to go to town on the details with such a big model, and I’m really pleased with him:
Finally, and only tangentially related, I used the spare bits from the model that used to make the War Alter in part 6, and just threw them together to make some scatter terrain:
And I think that’s you guys all caught up on my Realm of Warcry project – just as well because I’m on the verge of starting a new warband! More to follow on that subject soon, but first, I have a few 40k bits to share next week to get you fully up to date with my painting – catch you then.

All look fantastic Alex, love the conversions on the harpies, brings them more in line with Greek harpies, in fact I think they were a similar colour in Jason and the Argonaughts. Great looking scatter terrain from the spares of the War Altar, good use of spare parts.
Thanks mate, they’re ok, not my faves but suitably chaotic I think. I’m more pleased with the terrain though – I like to use stuff up and they were quick and easy to do 😊
These are brilliant! :-) Wouldn’t really want to bump into any of them mind you!
Cheers mate, and no, neither would I!
Ok, cool looking Beastmen. Someone’s bin choppin off ‘Eads! Nice looking Harpies….and then holy mother of ….what the nine hells is this guy?! That Crusher is just awesome! I like those terrain bits too that you cobbled together. The glossy lens on the last one are super cool!
Thanks mate, I’m really pleased with the Crusher, and it was a face transplant for those Beastmen so I got to keep their groovy horns! 😁
Great looking figures Alex. I do love some of the dramatic poses, very nice. Will be interested to see what you have up your sleeve! 🤔
Cheers mate, and I’m interested to see what happens next too! Next one is a Nurgle warband, so it’s all about diseases and rot… Should be fun from a painting perspective!! 🤢
Very nice all round! Those harpies look great with the Khainite heads and that dark colour scheme really suits the tzaangors. I hadn’t considered doing headswaps between gors and tzaangors but those work really well – was it fairly straightforward? That skin tone really suits the Fomoroid Crusher as well, I’d been a bit stuck with mine because I don’t really like the way the studio have painted him but I couldn’t “unsee” it or imagine it any other way – consider the idea pinched!
Cheers matey, yeah, it was an easy face transplant on those BeastieBoys – doing just the face lets you keep the more extravagant hornage!! 😁
Glad you like the Crusher, he’s my fave & the more realistic skin works well I think 👍
These are all great, the Harpies are excellent conversions and the paint scheme on the crusher is top notch, well done!
Thanks mate, all good fun 😊
Great (terrifying!) work on these!
Cheers muchly 😊
Very nice work, I’m impressed by literally everything here!
I like the green on the scenic bits, very evocative of the feel you are trying to convey.
Thanks mate, I had fun doing them 😊
They look terrific as always. Good work on the scatter terrain – I quite like to imagine that the Realms of Chaos include a fair number of mad scientists in addition to the roving bands of murderers we usually would paint up.
Cheers mate, absolutely! I love all the weird corners of the setting 😊
Ohh, some pretty cool and impressive work. The post is a crescendo in quality, lovely fellas and scenery!
Cheers mate, and I’m delighted to see your mining town back in progress!!
Brilliant work again mate, that crusher guy is amazing !
Thanks mate, I’m particularly pleased with how he came out 😊
Cracking stuff, Alex – I particularly love the Fomoroid Crusher! :)
Cheers mate, yeah, I’m super pleased with how he came out 😊
