Good Afternoon Fellow Gamers

I would like to have some comment on my project on slaanseh-themed beastmen horde. It will be self-sculpted, 'cause I like sculpting and also, I want it to be based on female models and female beastman can't be found anywhere.

Oh, and some nudity is involved. (Nothing dirty, no, no, no! Just in case you can't stand a pair of breasts... some people I've shown these couldn't)

Wow. Is someone inspired by Night Elves perchance? Looks nice, and a different take on Beasties.

Tee hee, boobies...

A very interesting take on the beast-"men".
I like how you have kept a strong look of cruelty on their faces, very Slaanesh.
That shaggoth in particular is going to be impressive.

How are you going to divide the genders? Just the minotaurs will be male?

Finnblood
10-02-2006, 18:27
night elves, as in warcraft? or dark elves?
neither, actually, these images are my own and were created while I was reading some Greek Myths and an idea of mighty minotaur hosts in the colours of Slaanesh flashed trough my mind and... well, there was no stepping back.

Tuskgor chariots will have males (they'll be pulled by unicorns), doombull will be a male and 50% of centaurs (or centigors) will be males. The giant, most of the minotaurs, the shaggoth, the daemon, the shaman and half of the centaurs will be female.

dogs (or maybe they'll be big panther-like cats) will be propably both (well, they'll actually be so hairy you can't tell the gender)

Yeah, from Warcraft. It's all in the ears, them ears could poke one's EYE out. And the general idea of cruelty-yet-beauty.

Finnblood
10-02-2006, 18:57
yea, the ears. the beloved ears. I use to get a lot of comment on my tremendous ears (well not mine, my drawings' I mean)

But... bigger ears, better finesse... aye?

I have liked how you went with weapon design, it holds them togather as an army a bit.

And the sculpt is good. should be a nice looking project overall.

Ok, fair enough, nice sketches and sculpts...
But I pose this question to the general public, not to spite anyone, but since I sincerely desire knowledge:
Why do nearly everyone seem to mistake Slaanesh: the god of excess, perversion and depravity, for Slaaaneesh: the god of pretty girls with no clothes on?
Where are the cannibalistic orgies, the child molesting and raping of monks? Or is it just I who have fallen to far to see naked women as a tell-tale sign of deprivation and perversity?

Finnblood
26-02-2006, 15:23
you see... I want once for that perversion look and the folks in Finland... went mad! They said I should go to a doctor and stuff...

And Slaanesh is also the God of Art And Music, right? Kinda twisted god of beauty, eh? So, I now-a-days prefer that aspect.

Of course there's the traditional blood orgies, but that's more Khornish. A horde beautiful, yet lethal beasts is kinda even more kinky, right? If you get kicks from killing humans while naked, bathing in their freshly squeezed blood and eating their corpses while masturbating you must be a bit weird, eh? And if you leave your city on a pilgrimmage to find beautiful people to serve as your sex slaves and/or food, you are not very politically correct, are you?

You now, also feasts are part of Slaani Rituals, true? So take it to extreme like the Roman vomiting feasts and the Dark Prince will be pleased.

I want my army be bit like the delves:
"We are the most civilized race in the world,
we have the most exquizite ways to rape, loot and slaughter!"

It's not the outside that matters, it's the inside.

kinda see some furry action going on. not sure if thats what you are aiming for

Furry? Furry art? Nope.

Beastmen. Not furry.

Nice sketches, and the sculpts look like they're comming on well. Hehe. I noticed the minotaur was 'anatomically correct'. I take it the sculpts will be as well? :p Nice to see someone exploring the masculine side of the Slaaneshi movement.

Unfortunetly, when GW created Slaanesh, they didn't fully comprehend what they unleashed. There's MUCH more to Slaanesh than to what GW puts out. Unfortunetly, seeing how society today is so uptight and PC, they couldn't really go into the really dark side of Slaani ritual and worship. So they appealed to their main buyer base: Young Anglo-Saxon straight males. Boobies glaor, with a hint of BDSM. I'm still waiting for GW to do some decent male minitures, a-la incubi (The demons, not the Eldar). Unforunetly, we all know this will never happen, as anything that even remotely looks homoerotic will not fly in the buyer base.

We just need something for variety, instead of the usual Nuns-gone-bad style that purveys Slaaneshi styles. So keep up the good work Finnblood, and let us know how it turns out.

(Oh, and if you want a funky daemon prince, use the Deciever model...anatomically correct, of course :evilgrin: )

What? No! That'd mean there wouldn't be any new minotaurs after these die!
Of course minotaurs have, and so do gors, ungors and bestigors - unless they're chicks or live in somewhere victorian. Or if they are castrated (not sure if that's even a word). It's like saying "Dwarves don't need heads, cos they intimidate me!"

I find it sad, that GW is so conservative with the minis. I once almost sent them a letter "who stole the dicks from all the stallions?", but that'd been just a waste of stamps and ink.

And, as Ancient Greeks is one of my themes (lot of gay activity around there), the fluffy tells, that the Centaurs (there's gonna be lads and lassies) have no certain sexuality - so they are bi and even further...

Of course they will not be performing anything erotic (the sculpts), cos you'll be dead meat, if you have an orgy in front of your enemies.

Maybe a diorama though....

I'd say the extra graphic nature of your beastpeople adds character, they do however look a little too human, the faces and such are rather different from most beastmen models I've seen.

Good on you for deviating from the norm, it's very refreshing.

Warboss Garfang
08-03-2006, 03:45
Refreshing, but just remember that taking these to a tournament is most likely not a good idea...but I guess you could try and see how much flak you get for it.

Cool? Yeah.
Necessary? Nope.

If it were my army, I wouldn't have it, but that's why it's your's.

I must say, I do like the giant, and the Shaggoth, but I'm not a huge fan of your paint scheme, and that first model was deffinately poo. However, I'm sure you're learning a lot about sculpting, and I hope to see some cool stuff soon.

I'm PRETTY sure he'd disagree!!

Why? Not to a GW-rip-some-cash-off-wargamers tournament, but to some nice, fair indie tournament. Original looks give extra points, ye know. And distracting opponent and causing mental traumas is a good strategy.

I know.

Oh, the pinks? It was a joke to annoy people in Finland. I'm repainting theme in white and purple.

Warboss Garfang

Heh, good to know about the paint scheme.

I think most indie tournaments would gladly welcome the army, and it'll be funny to tell one of your opponents to snap out of it when you find them zoning out at boobies...

<---He's hoping to see some more sculpts...

Here's some pics, so you'll have some idea how's the new paint scheme gonna look:

I apologize for my appalling use of the mother tongue...

Sorry I dont see any gaping vaginas in slaaneshes works either. If your unquenchable lust for cock pervades however, then fine.

ROFLAO.

Oh, I found that really funny for some reason, though I had diffuculty understanding the first sentance.

Ahh...your jabs at my sexuality aside, I find the answer boils down to this: It's a form of art. Everyone has a valid opinion. Some of us are a bit more lighthearted about it, I guess.

Se la vive.

Allright, the following is a practice face from my last scratch of Milliput. I guess I'm gonna make something similar to my Bray Shamaness. It has certain Feline feel in it, I think. The nose is a disaster - however, this is my first "human" face, so I reckon they'll get better as the time flows. Another problem is the roughness of the skin, which was pro'ply caused by the needle I used as a sculpting device (yes, I know - very low-tech... But Finland is, after all, a 3rd world country, so...)

And do not pay attention to the Gondorian I used as something to stick the Milliput on - I tried to edit him out, but I'm hopeless with photoeditors...

Here, have a peek:

I agree completely. In fact, it is a bit strange that GW always encourages originality, but when it comes to certain things, they pull the Inquisitorial ban on it. And i don't see any probems when you depict guts and blood spilled from a Marine being eaten alive by a Tyranid... I have a Slannesh project i have been wanting to do for some time, and it involves a level of depravation that i KNOW fans won't take well. But, if you go for originality, you have to get used to bad reviews all the time i guess. I wonder how many times Tarantino heard the phrase 'Isn't that excessive Quentin?' :rolleyes:

Finnblood, congratulations on this most interesting project. I've been following it for a while and i'm quite anxious to see how it continues to develop. It shows that you improve more and more each time.

Keep up the great work!

I drew a Gor this time. I'm thinking of giving the model a pair of katanas - good idea? Or TK fashion scimitars... Any other ideas?
(Oh, and the picture is poor - my camera was running out of energy, so had to take a quickshot.)
