Greetings, you stranger, you have come to learn my secrets, I presume? Secrets, indeed! Mwhahahhhaaa! Curiosity killed the cat, they say, don't they? Mwhahahhaaaa!

You're right, stranger, I must control myself. I.. I have still my sanity... yes... or no? Very well, what do you wish to learn? About the Beasts of the Dark Prince, the so-called Brethren of Desire? Yes... but it will cost your very soul! No? Well some shillings then? Ah, this'll do, this'll do quite well indeed...

Now, come to me in the days to follow and I shall reveal what I have learnt, but before that I will let you peek at the future... mhehheehee... come to see...

BEHOLD THE FUTURE!

For those of you, who do not understand my perverse humour, this is a Mordheim blog, which will update when I get more pictures uploaded.

Cant really seem to understand whats going on... I can make out a couple of Empire troops in the lot but thats about it...

Cant you post some closeups??

And one other thingie... Isnt Mordheim that dark and sinister city with mud and dirt on the streets...lots of grass on your interpetation of Mordheim dont you think?

Well, this was just some sneak peeks to warm the blog up. I'll get some proper and big photos when my assistant gets his lazy butt moving and uploads the pics he took last saturday.

And I know Mordheim's supposed to be dark n' stuff (well so's FB) but currently we have only this GW based skit (I'll use the swedish word, cos otherwise those stars will eat my letters). But don't worry, I've already made a dark Mordheimy house, then we do have those cardboard houses and someone made a gravely and dark gametable for 40k.

This was a megabattle with many players, so we were forced to use all kinds of stuff - including loads of ladders, see them little buggers?

Ah, it's you again, stranger?

Come, come, come see my wand and balls! What, no you fool, my crystal balls and magic wand! Look!

Now.. wherewasI? oh, yes... the Beasts mhemehee...

This is what I have seen. Behold Aphallos III!

So this is my self-sculpted minotaur, Aphallos. His two predecessors were killed by heavy pistolfire and the neighbouring mino. 600 gcs gone so far... well, big deal... Comments are very welcome, as always.

Oh, and I know he's a bit boldly dressed, so you don't need to whine about that...

Im not going to get into that kind of discussion... it is something that it has been discussed over and over through Warseer again and again! Daemonettes are OFICIAL GW release meaning that they have been approved by whatever kind of association deals with toy rating n stuff that they are appropriate for underage children to deal with!!

This my dear friend is a coversion (god make it one...)! If I was about to show you my fully converted BESTIALITY HARDCORE PORNO Slaneesh Chaos Army would you still act as an Open Minded forum user??

I would. *shifty eyes*

And cerealkiller, maybe it has something to do with the fact that, oh, I don't know, the majority of forum members are male and in their teens/twenties? ;)

*ahem*

Yes. Topic. Right. Have you converted your whole warband, or just your leaders?

Finnblood
31-05-2006, 17:45
Now, now, <*****Comment Deleted WarSeer Inquisition*****>, there's no need to go bananas. Nudity and sexuality are both beautiful things. And yes, I'd love to see your HC porno Slaanesh, it might be good inspiration.

And your animated avatar is far more disturbing than any pornographic material I have seen. Gods I hate it.

Yes, it might seem I have used Gloss varnish, but this is not the case. As he's quite big (about old giant-sized) and therefore has much area, the Matt varnish glitters a bit in bright light. Curse Maston for that.

Conversion? No, he's a sculpt. Milliput and Greenstuff 100%. Except that the base is cardboard...

And yes, I shall sculpt all my Mordheim minis. I have already a centigor, chief, 2 bestigors and soon my shaman is ready too. Then I'll start making my hounds and ungors.

I currently use FB models for them, but I have self-sculpted those too.

Ah yes, this body part is far more disturbing than (eg) a khornate berzerker covered in blood with decapitated bodies flying all over the place...

On topic: The smaller pictures make it look fairly good, so I hope that you wanted to achieve an overall good look. Yet, the larger picture shows it's all kinda blurred together... keep going and posting pictures...

You know about half of underaged kids have seen a penis before (they're known as boys). And let's think realistically a lot of underaged kids watch porn. disturbing...not to me, as most of us do it. <*****Comment Deleted WarSeer Inquisition*****>

Just to let you know, this kind of thing happens whenever someone posts a model with male genitalia. So don't worry, they'll get bored soon.

anyway your just probably supressing some emotion that your gay and your just afraid to admit it

Did you just call me gay?? :mad:

<******Comment deleted by the WarSeer Inquisition*******>

Ahh the morality Thread AGAIN.... OK I'll give you a toy to play with

Suppose that I pretend to be a Moral guy...suppose that kids in our days truly are familiar with sights such as porn...


at any rate, Very Nice model there, when will be seeing more of the warband?

<******Comment deleted by the WarSeer Inquisition*******>

And dont come over me with statements like "the guy is trying and lets see your work ...etc"
A crap is a crap and I think that this was a blog giving our ideas and opinions. If you are AFRAID of giving out your real opinion thats HYPOCRISY and thats even worse than pretending to be Moral!

Nothing personal with you Finnblood even though you called me a Penisphobe but some things are beyond normality and I just cant stand and stare!

There... continue to provoce ,call me names praise this MASTERPIECE (I'm sure more will come), I dont care and OF COURSE I wont reply!

Ahh one other thing

And your animated avatar is far more disturbing than any pornographic material I have seen. Gods I hate it.

This my friend is from Naruto... a children's TV series, if you find this disturbing and in fact more than any pornographic material:wtf: then I am truly concerned for your mental health!

<*****Comment Deleted WarSeer Inquisition*****>Rather amusing that bloke. Penises are beyond normality? So what you are saying, is that a penis is a rare mutation only occuring in extreme situtations? Well, I think I need to visit a doctor now, cos I happen to be infected by this disease. Do you know wheter it's lethal? Is there a treatment for having a penis?

Okay, enough with sarcasm...


This my friend is from Naruto... a children's TV series, if you find this disturbing and in fact more than any pornographic material then I am truly concerned for your mental health!

Anime is a very violent and crude manifestation of Japanese culture. These so called children's shows are more gory than a Khornate in a hen-house and often have very provocingly dressed female characters. For example, in Ghost in Shell, Magic Knights and Sailor Moon there is loads of female nudity and bloodshed. They are actually meant for adults, but the fact that they are cartoons makes Western people think they are meant for kids.
These matters have however, nothing to do with the fact that I find your avatar disturbing. The dude has no nose, his eyes are bulbous and glow maliscously, like the eyes of a daemon, his head ends in deformed spikes, he's garbed outlandishly and worst of all, his mouth is possessed by some wicked creature, so that it keeps grinding the very fabric of reality, ultimately devouring the essence of the universe and the souls of the living and the passed!

My sculptures follow the guidelines of the famous Elfwood, which is PG13 rated, as is Warhammer. The game was not meant for kids in the beginning.

I can't really understand your criticism Cad@ver, you puzzle me greatly. I quite like the model, I've always been fond of blues and purples on minis like this one, it really makes them look out of the ordinary.

pablofiasco
01-06-2006, 17:49
my real Opinion: I Honestly and truely LIKE the Scuplt and Paintjob
Yes its a little "rought around the Edges", but overall i like the feel of the scuplt, the pose, and yes, i like the paintjob as well. From the Othe rpicutes already posted its at roughtly the same quailty as the other minis, thus fitting perfectly with his army as seen

on anime+ avatar= Dont see anything really creepy with the avatar, but then as im a member of an anime club, and not just attend, but staff anime convetions, it shouldnt really be surpising. Personally there are other shows i like better then naruto (elfen lied for one, Armored troopers votoms for another, Shinesmen for teh funny@!) but naruto is a fairly decent anime (if a bit violent at times), However the avatar is neither A) violent,and B) crude,
Howver this Really isnt the board to discuss anime and such, so i suggest its dropped before posts start vanishing

back on topic(sorta): there are far more disturbing models with wangs aviable: for ex take a look at heresyminiatures netherlord 2 model,, its sports its own "nether-wang" which, to be frank, in the scale its in is the nearly the size of a guardsmen (or at the very least a cherub), and thats on a commerical mini


@finnblood; quick thing, Ghost in the shell is most decidely NOT a childrens show, However Sailormoon, in both its animated and live action formats, most decidely IS, , and while there someimes is "questionable content" in it when compared to american tv, the japanese do have differnt morailty standards/etc then other nations, so differnece is to be expected, but for the most part sailormoon is very tame

By Slaanesh, it's the third time I say this: on Friday, which (at least around here) is tomorrow. At the moment it is a very grim and rainy day in Finland, but tomorrow should be sunny, so I can shoot pics. Clear enough?

01-06-2006, 18:07
Yes. I was joking- it was an attempt to get the thread back onto the subject of your warband. Hence the ;) face.

need either a better picture, or better lighting

from what i can tell, some kind of wolf/fox leader type? (is that a beard?)
paint scheme for this one needs some work, most of the details kinda fade into each other to much (or that could be picture blur)

Finnblood
02-06-2006, 15:26
Yeah, it's the blur, it's sunny now, I'll go and re-shoot.

Finnblood
02-06-2006, 15:37
Bit blurry still, but my cam can't do better - sorry!

And maybe I can answer some question you might have:
Yes, he is a wolf, I hate the goats. Yes, he has a sort of a beard. That's rasta on his head - purple rasta! Yes, he likes smoking pot. Yes, he has pink eyes. Yes, the blade is NMM, unfortunately the freehands are bit blurry in the pics. He's about a head taller than a chaos warrior.

This one demonstrates why he's holding his blade like that - he's covering his nocturnal eyes from the bright sun:

Mucho Better pic
scuplt seems to be good, but one thing (sorry Cpt brown i have to comment, but it is in regards to the sclupt itself, not bash/etc)):this sculpt does seem to carry your trademark however:
Dogs/canines/etc's "equipment" is designed a bit differnt them humans, It dosent dangle as much but is contained ina sheath held closer to the body for protection (from teh elements, Damage from terrain/attackers eetc)

off that subject: his chest seems to be a bit funky, the sword arm side's chest seems to be bigger then the other,
also: the upper part of hte left leg also seems to be a bit out of proportion with the other as well

Finnblood
02-06-2006, 18:30
Cpt. Brown, please do not waste my blog, but I need to answer pablofiasco (besides, this is actually on topic, so I guess it's okay): I do know that canine gentitals differ from humans, but I was afraid it would mistaken as an erection, so I prefered to use a more hairy version of the human genital, on my bestigor I have used the canine penis, and I'll try to paint it in a fashion that it cannot be mistaken as an erection.

He's actually quite skinny (I always sculpt the muscles and such before adding hair) but the fuzzy and thick coat is thicker on some places than the others so this makes him a bit out of proportions here and there. But the legs are actually bit uneven, but I'll play the Chaos card now: he's tainted!

Thanks for the comments, keep them coming!

Next will be either Wari (also known as "Furry") who I am not very happy with or Cyphor (often referred as "the bloody cheese-ass centigor-bastard") my ok centigor.

Other members to come are Stripeface II, Leaper IV, Croucher IV, Devourer III, Ulvin the Bestigor and Silversparks my mage.

04-06-2006, 16:08
The the figures look great and I love your idea. I think people forget how offensive slaanesh would be. His armies would be pornographic to the extreme, if it was true to it's theme. Liber chaotic Slaanesh should have been a highly perverse sado-masochistic porno. The reason why Slaanesh's followers are immune to psychology IMO is that they have been so violated by their master that nothing bothers them any more.

It would be a challenge to sculpt that type of army and it would also by deeply offensive to mostly people who saw it. The good thing about your army so far it that it has a more sexual feel but doesn't go too far over the top.

Finnblood
05-06-2006, 15:20
Ah, Stranger!

I know you have a name, of course you do! And I know we have met already several times - I'm not that crazy! No, I am not going to use your name. Once a Stranger, always a Stranger, that's what my cat used to say!

What? What do you mean? Of course I'm not making sense - sense is an abstract thing, you can't make things that don't concretely exist! Figure of speech? Speech is just invisible sound waves, it doesn't have a figure!

Umm, yes quite right you are, we are not here to discuss irrelevant matters.

This is Cyphor Thirsty, my drunkard centigor, who's also called "cheese-ass", "that bastard!" or simply "Oi! You killed me Slayer!"

I'm quite happy with the sculpt, except that his rear legs (hind legs they are called, right?) are bit short and chubby.

Verminmistress
05-06-2006, 15:40
The hind legs aren't actually all that noticeable. One of them looks kinda off (the one on the left picture), but the other doesn't look that bad. I really like the way you've done his braid, too.

Is that a waterskin or a bottle or what, that he's holding?

Finnblood
05-06-2006, 16:04
It's small brass flask with blood! I was gonna make it beer, but I had just made a Blood mix and I got a bit carried away - that's why there's blood all over him (there was much more, but I removed most... he's a Slaaneshite, not Khornate, afterall).

There's a nice story behind the braid-thing: when I first sculpted it, it looked really horrible, cos I didn't know how to make braid. My hands were covered with Milliput, so I couldn't call anyone. Then I remembered, that we have this sweet bun-sorta-thing, which is braided, here in Finland. So what I did, I opened a cookbook with my left pinky (which, luckily, was not covered in Milliput) and teeth, quickly searched the right page and there was a very good tutorial how to make braids!

pablofiasco
05-06-2006, 19:24
i'd like to second that funky leg comment, but,you know, it works for him,
about the braids; any chance of getting scans of that? or your own little "inspired by" tutorial?

on the flask: kinda hard to recognize what it is, at first i though it was a helemt+severed head. In the future maybe use some sort of (more easly recongnizeable" goblet?

on fursuits: Good luck on making one, i can barely make a decent anime- themed costume, let alone a full fursuit. although if you do; one hint: get some Surplus Kevlar thread to re-enfroce any joints, trust me on this, kind of embarssing to have a tail come off in the middle of...

Finnblood
06-06-2006, 13:57
Eh, the fursuit-thing was just a joke people like to tease me with. I'm not actually making one!

I can see what you mean and I agree. I have not fixed it yet, but I will.

Hortwerth
07-06-2006, 19:23
Finnblood, I really like what you're doing. You should work on small details though when it comes to sculpting - things like hair and claws should be smaller and more sharp - try to use some different sculpting stuff for them. I don't know if you use Green Stuff, but I recommend it for the small details.

Your painting could benefit from some more visible shading. I read others' opinions on your work and I think that's what most of the people find strange in these models (apart from other, more obvious... parts), coupled with the blue tones (unnatural some may think), and a bit blurred photos, makes the people go "wtf?!?"

I see you have your own style and a lot of dedication, and with a bit more here and there (I mean the sharper small details, some more shading, less blurry photos) this would be a striking log. Despite these I really like what you're doing and wanted to say to you: Keep it up!

This painting looks much better than previous scheme. You shoudl consider darkening all of the models, they'll look more dangerous and less fairy.
