Lo, and behold. A thread for my stuff. In short, the concept behind this warband is a rogue Genetor/Magos Biologis and his posse of chimaeric biomechanical creations. The Genetor gone mad with warp-infused visions of artistic splendor in creating what in his mind would be the perfect creature.

Most of the fellas are completed already, what remains is probably one more chimaera, and genetor Garbitz Lancifer Moreau himself. Maybe some accompanying familiars?
I tried going with a loosely Blanchitsu-inspired colour scheme, to hopefully capture a smidgeon of Blanche's wonderful weirdness.


The 'Chimaera Ciconiidae'



The 'Chimaera Cervus'



The 'Chimaera Calliphora'


Tell me what you think!

Amazing work! Am getting a really Boschian vibe from the models, the beaked swordsman being my overall favourite!

Khordal beat me to it - the description and the images give me a strong Hieronymus Bosch vibe. great stuff!


Also - where is that bug-eyed lamprey mouthed head on the last guy from? It gives me ideas... and I'm so out of touch with whats available these days!

Hieronymous Bosch was definitely an inspiration, ahah.

It's from the Putrid Blightkings set, several cool heads in there.

Welcome to the Bunker. I love new year people crawl out into the open :-)

Very cool thread. Bird head is ace and the suckling pig is just downright weird. Top Marks.

Looking forward to seeing what monstrosity made these monsters.
