Lo, and behold. A thread for my stuff. In short, the concept behind this warband is a rogue Genetor/Magos Biologis and his posse of chimaeric biomechanical creations. The Genetor gone mad with warp-infused visions of artistic splendor in creating what in his mind would be the perfect creature.

Most of the fellas are completed already, what remains is probably one more chimaera, and genetor Garbitz Lancifer Moreau himself. Maybe some accompanying familiars?
I tried going with a loosely Blanchitsu-inspired colour scheme, to hopefully capture a smidgeon of Blanche's wonderful weirdness.

Amazing work! Am getting a really Boschian vibe from the models, the beaked swordsman being my overall favourite!

Khordal beat me to it - the description and the images give me a strong Hieronymus Bosch vibe. great stuff!


Also - where is that bug-eyed lamprey mouthed head on the last guy from? It gives me ideas... and I'm so out of touch with whats available these days!

Hieronymous Bosch was definitely an inspiration, ahah.

It's from the Putrid Blightkings set, several cool heads in there.

The Birdman is so incredible cool! Saw it on facebook and has eagerly awaited for you to show up here!

That pig on the back, where did you find that one? Quite grim and quite clever idea!

One rock hard warband coming up!

It's hard to describe, I kinda just wing it and make it up as I go along, and hope for the best... while keeping the composition in mind.

It's actually a goat from the Warhammer Fantasy Giant!
