Currently im building a Beastman army. Me and a buddy agreed a few months back to build an army using the weakest books. Ive always loved beastmen so picked them and he picked Woodelves. (Lucky for him they arent so weak anymore) Ill use this thread to post my progress on building and painting my army.

The second can be used as a razorgor chariot.

We chose to do with an early fall theme for our bases. This is how my first chariot base turned out. Notice the tree stump. More on base details later.

I like your leaf litter and the use of the kroot models for your beastmen. Are you going with a Tzeentch theme for the army then? Reaper makes this Safron Sunset color (kind of an orangish brown) that goes very well with a blue grey look. It's how I was going to do my beastmen before I gave them up.

Im doing a mix of three war bands into on grand warherd. Ill have a Tzeentch warband, a standard beastmen warband, and a Korne minotaur warband. Thanks, the picture really doesnt do the base justice. I'll work on pic quailty. But im really happy so far with how the bases and models are turning out. After building the chariots I had a ton of good bits left over. So I modeled my own Razorgor out of the Gorebeast. I dont have before pics but this is it done. The first finished unit for the regular beastmen warband.

In most my armies, I will do a basic multi flock basing. This helps lead to a uniform ground covering for my whole army. This worked well for my Empire, as they looked like they were practising drills on the parade ground.

However in my beastmen herd I wanted the bases to have more character. I wanted them to look just as wild and untamed as my herd. So I've really enjoyed doing thier bases so far.

Earlier I posted a picture of a chariot base with a tree stump and gnarled roots. This base I really went crazy on. Its a beastman way stone for my second chariot.

I really like the ivy around the stone. The black areas will be where the mounts are glued to the base.

I finished the first of my chariots. This chariot belongs to the Tzeench warband. I dont have the riders pantied yet, I still have some conversions to do on them before paint.

For my Tzeench warband, im using Kroot as Gors. The first major conversion work was giving them two hand weapons. For most the models I used kroot arms and added weapons, and repositioned the arms. l also used some flaggelant arms, Gor arms, and possessed arms. The possessed arms show the mutating effect Tzeench has on his followers.

According to the fluff a proper Gor must have horns to be a Gor. Honesty, I really like the look after adding the horns.

Ill go back with green stuff and fill in the gaps. Of the 30 Gors in this unit I have 10 remaining that need horns.

I've been working on getting my Empire ready for Nashcon. In the mean time I found this old gem from my first beastmen army. Im gonna go back and touch up the paint. He has a few nicks and dings. I also need him to match my new painting methods.I also want to rebase him if I can find the new correct base for a Giant.

I really like the horn addition to the kroot. I've seen people use the kroot for beast men before but I've never seen them put the horns on them so I think that is a great addition.

From the pics on the chariot. I like the chariots look overall. Just like all your stuff excellent paint jobs. My one thing though is that the chariot looks "clean". With it being beast men I would think that there would be more weathering on the metal and wood and such.

Thanks Kaptun, the horns are a pain in the butt. However, the look is worth it.

The vast majority of armies that I've painted have been clean and polished. I dont have alot of weathering experience. So far I've been using the tarnish "technical" paint. I like the results so far. Ill get some pics up.

I'd suggest weathering powders for the weathering experience. I think it would make a world of difference.

And yes sometimes the look makes it all the difference to encourage on a whole army conversion.

Now that Nashcon has passed and the Empire painting frenzy is over. I can get back to my Beastmen project. Im working on my second chariot and I've completed the base and the mounts. Remeber my warherd is composed of three warbands: Tzeench Gors, standard Gors, and Korne Minotaurs. This chariot is for the standard Gor warband.

I like the updated boars for the chariots. I did the same thing for my boar chariots.

The new boar models are great, such an improvment on the old boars. For this chariot I used Savage Orc boars. They have a great balance between realism and fantasy. In my opinion one of the best looking mount models. Tied maybe with the Dark Elf Cold Ones.

Its hard to tell in the pics but the noses are a little pinker than the rest of the flesh.

With tournament season in full swing, its hard to get some time for a non competitive army.

Even with the focus on my Empire. I've found a little time to finish a chariot. This is a Razorgor chariot for the Tzeench warband.
