Beastmen, Movember and Kickstarters Oh my!
First of all I would like to thank all of you who have received the group project so well! Shawn "PPC" Welte, Mike Butcher and myself have all received great kudos and lots of interest from the community - looks like we are definitely on to something here :)
I would like to point you once again to Shawn "PPC" Welte and Mike Butcher's sites as they have each posted some pretty great info about their thought and design process in the Beastman figures they made for me. Following along the same lines below I will post a couple of pics of the model that I made for Shawn and a little info on what it is all about.
Shawn's army is comprised mostly of mutant freaks with a very marauder/barbarian kind of feel. He has not limited himself to GW models or parts so I didn't feel in any way constrained to that either. I chose an OOP Rackham figure Gwahyr the Merciless as the basis. This is one of my favorite miniatures - the sculpting is incredible, the pose is really different and the minute and strange details on it remind me of the kind of thing I would expect in a John Blanche illustration.
