C27 Chaos Beastman Slothman

This miniature took me ages to track down for a cheap price. I actually thought I would never be able to get him into my Beastman collection, but ebay can be very strange at times. 

This one is called Slothman from the classic C38 Beastman range. He didn’t take very long at all too paint due to the fact he’s mostly fur. The sculptor did a cracking job on his face. I hope my paint job does it justice:

Until next time buds.

Chaos Khorne Beastman with Axe

I had in mind to paint a Chaos Warrior, but I just could not resist painting another Beastman. I love the pose on this fella. A real classic Beastman sculpt:

It's not a bad paint job but could have been better. The red armour didn't quite come out how I wanted it to but I do struggle painting red. I also think the shield doesn't work. Might come back to this with a standard plastic shield with a simple Khorne symbol on it. It's just stuck on with some blu tack so no problem there. The tiny little skulls were a nightmare to paint. They are just so small and the detail varies from skull to skull.

Its another figure done after all and I am happy enough with it. I'm currently working on another (sigh, yes another) classic Chaos Beastman. Watch this space fellow Chaos followers.

Chaos Khorne Beastman with Hammer

Yet another Beastman completed. I really like how the skin turned out:

This fella shares its body with at least two more Beastmen sculpts, albeit a with few minor changes here and there. This is the case with many of the Beastmen and you only really notice it when you start painting the cheeky chap and think "hello, why does this seems familiar". I actually did a shield which I loathe to do. Didn't turn out too bad. Still hate doing them though!

Right, I've really got to do something other than a Beastmen now. Me thinks a Chaos Warrior is next.

Chaos Khorne Beastman - Bull Headed with Axe

Howdy folks,

Here is my recent addition to my growing Beastman collection:

Nabbed this description from a Ebay seller that steals photo's of painted mini's from other peoples blogs without permission so I think its fair game!

Minotaur Beastman

Uniquely styled and sized, this mini is fairly small for a Minotaur, roughly the same height as other beastmen in fact, and while later iterations were generally bigger, it suggests that bull headed men-beasts were, in the infinite possibilities of Chaos, just another variety of Beastman. Many of the details lend weight to this, specifically the trousers and single boot. How many Minotaurs have you ever seen depicted wearing clothes that weren't ceremonial armour or a loin cloth? In fact, the ragged pantaloons and boot give this Minotaur an almost 'wolf-man' vibe as if turning into a minotaur is like the curse of lycanthropism. An interesting proposition for this Beastman to be either a temporary mutant according to a curse, or to have once been a man and degenerated into a Beastman. Brutal axe held aloft, eye patch marking a previous struggle, mutated, cursed and 'gifted' by the dark gods.

C27 Chaos Beastman Turtle Man

Twas a most horrid mini to paint this C27 Chaos Beastman named Turtle Man. I’m not a fan of this figure and that’s mainly down to the sculpt. Bland comes to mind. Anyway, it’s done and here for all to see and mock:

Next up will be a Khorne Beastman (once it’s finished that is).

Until next time buds!
