Greetings Terrans, how goes it? As promised, it’s a Realm of Warcry post this week – I was planning on tackling the Rotmire Creed, but November is already looking tight for time so I did the less numerous Beastman portion of my warband instead. I also managed to get a game in, but annoyingly failed to roll up any new followers again… (However, I did murderise a gazzilion Zombies, earned me some sweet sweet Chaos Armour & a spooky Halloween amulet of protection, and one of my Orcs got promoted too, so I can use that lovely store birthday model I shared a few weeks back, so still a great outcome).
Anyway, let’s take a look at the Beastmen. I managed to roll three and two back when the warband was created, so I’ve lumped them together for a total of five Beastmen. I decided to go for Ungors as a cheap option to pad my warband & went with three spears & two archers as a nod to my original roll and to give me some options at range. One of them also got the waband banner:
I used a few spare Rotmire bits to hopefully tie these guys in with the humans, and I used yellow as a spot colour to link them back to the Orcs from last month. There are a couple of light mutations in there too, but nothing too overbearing I hope. Here’s the gang so far – see what you think:
Paint-wise, I added more yellow to Morbin’s beard just prior to this pic, and ‘m really pleased that the yellow is managing to bring them together and look like a cohesive whole. I’m really happy with the banner too – I wanted to reference Morbin’s ‘Biting Tongue’ mutation, and I reckon that might be what he is mutating into under his helm!
I also knocked together a bonus Gor (aka a ‘big Beastman’) just in case one of my lil’ Beasties gets all heroic or something:
Hmmm…. I’m not in love with this guy to be honest, and he might get filed under ‘could do better’, but he’s ok I guess. He’s based on a Plaguebearer body with lots of poor quality oversculpting, and is just a wee bit messy really.
Anyway, that’s it for this week, catch you all later!

Great looking Beastmen Alex, like the additions to tie them in, and using a similar colour is making a very cohesive warband
Cheers mate, it’s all starting to come together nicely! 😊
I am not a fan of the Ungor but very nicely done mate.
Cheers mate, I wasn’t before to be fair, but I actually quite like the wee scamps now! The kit is showing its age a bit, but it’s very versatile… I’m actually thinking of grabbing a few more!
Something you did gives the appearance of weight, they don’t have that blow away plastic look somehow.
Interesting! Well, whatever I did was a happy accident 😂
Great looking additions. The yellow is working very well for cohesion.
I really like the banner….a great prediction for the leaders “blessings”
Cheers mate, I’m chuffed with how it’s all hanging together tbh – onwards and upwards!
Lovely looking beastmen, there Alex, you are turning out some beautiful mini’s mate.
Cheers Roger, that’s very kind of you sir 😊
Oh yes, definitely beastly! :-) These are brilliant!
Cheers dude 😊
Quite the war band mate and I like the way you’ve tied them all in. Very nice indeed. 🙂
Cheers matey, I’m having a great time with it 😊
I thought I recognised some plaguebearer in there. I actually am in love with the Gor hehe. He’s very cool. I like his stance. The ungors are great too, especially the skin tone. They look and feel beastly and sort of dirty. Great job.
Aw, cheers mate 😊
Fantastic stuff as always. I love how grimy the Ungors look without being too drab for the tabletop. I really like the Gor, the bird head he’s carrying adds a much-needed splash of colour.
Cheers dude, yeah, that’s the trouble with Nurgle – it can all end up looking a bit samey! Glad that I’ve avoided that particular pitfall here 😊

Those are brilliant. Lovely and grungey as nurgle beastmen should be.
Cheers mate, they are grubby wee buggers 😊
That banner is amazing sir! And the shield swap and colour certainly helps tie them in with the rest.
Cheers mate, I had fun with that banner, glad you like it 😊👍
Well, I love them all, I think the final result is pretty cool. They look menacing and awesome!
Cheers mate, I certainly wouldn’t want to bump into them 😂👍
Great crew. I really need to expand my Beastmen force.
Cheers mate – yeah, I have the urge to build more too!!
Noice! Those ungors have come out nicely, they match up well with the Rotemire Creed parts as well. Cracking job on the banner. I’m really enjoying this Nurgle project from you, and the Tzeentch stuff earlier in the year was awesome too. Of course you know what that means don’t you – as soon as you’re done with the plague god’s minions Khorne and Slaanesh will be wanting your attention…
Glad you like ‘em dude, I’m pretty chuffed with them tbh! Too right it’s gonna be the big K or the sexy S next… April-ish I’d guess? You up for joining in mate? 🤞🤞🤞
In theory? You bet! In actuality? Let’s see if life is a little more chilled out by April, but it should be so pencil me in and remind me nearer the time!
Certainly impressive matey!!
Cheers mate, I do enjoy a nice warband project 😊
