A hobby room with no tiles or carpet isn't really a place I feel comfortable painting in, so I haven't. I did manage o finish off the beastmen though downstairs in front of the telly whilst me and the missus watched various films this past week. So here ya go, the Beastmen Penitents are done. Tabletop level of paint as I've just got too many more units to work through, but even then I think I spent too much time trying to get them done. :)
They're all made from Catachan Guardsmen and plastic Gor parts. I sawed off the Guard boots, and the Gor lower legs and glued them on this took an absolute age to do and do right so they didn't look way out of proportion and completely naff.
Most of the models have Guard torsos and arms and Beastman heads. Obviously the kits don't match up perfectly and so some of the horns and hair on the Gor heads caused the fitting of the guard arms to not match up so well; so there's a few models where an arm might be a little out of place. (But they're mutants, so really didn't bug me as much as it would if they had been humans, right?)
Here's the 1st three. I the fellow on the right's legs didn't allow for "hoof-removal" and so I just left him with the Gor legs, which was okay and added a little extra variety in the unit.
Next 3, I particularly like the scar-face on the right - that's some real attitude there!
I'm trying to figure out if the one in the middle of these three is burping, or bellowing. I'd like to think burping, just cos it's more amusing. :)
The white's of the wife-beater shirts is not as bright as this picture makes them out to be. Promise.
And so were I to play a game of 40K, these beastmen would count as a Penal Legion unit, so here they are all arrayed together with their bad arse Custodian, Sergeant Lorch. (He must be a mean one if his diminutive sized self can keep this burly lot in line!)
And lastly a closeup to show that Lorch really does fit in just fine.
