They've kinda got a bare chest and armbands thing going on... and only half the eyeliner for a Fimir!


And a skull obsession that will feel at home should you be inclined to use them with newhammer... ;)

Re: The month of Marsh- season of Mists and mist monsters!

Too tempted by the Month of Marsh challenge I couldn't pass up the chance to cobble together my own one-eyed bog fiend. Not wanting to divert too much attention from my Nurgle army project I came up with this: A Fianna Fimm in Chaos armour, idea being that he can double as Nurgle Ogre.

I wrote a little backstory for him that I posted over in my army thread.

The Mistfits? Is it time for a new Oldhammer band to join the battle; a band of Fimir rockers? (There should probably be banjos in this one, it being swamp themed and all.)

There SHOULD! :)

Galivantes, that conversion rocks! I never thought the humble placcy chaos warrior could produce such magnificence!

Thanks Fimm, you know your Fimir pretty well so if I can sneak a Fimir conversion past you I feel like I've succeeded :D

You've got the right number of digits and eyes, that's ok by me. :)

I nearly forgot the fingers! After doing his left hand the other looked too narrow so I altered that too. But it was a blessing in disguise as it helped conceal the original sculpt.

All in all a really fun project that took me down a twisty road I'd never thought of myself. A testament to the power of this forum to jog one's inspiration. Hats off to you guys who encourage these themed exercises.

Tune in next week to watch me turn a glade rider and a bolt thrower chassis into a twenty strong unit of Tzeentch chaos dwarves with full command using only wood filler and a spatula! Only on oldhammer.org.uk!

Jokes aside thanks for the feedback :D
