Does anyone know of some good figs to use for the Beastmen Cygor, Gorgon and Jabberslythe? I found pics of an old Ral Partha Cyclops throwing a stone that would work for the Cygor, But I can't find it for sale any where.

I converted up my Cygor just the other day and it turned out fantastic. I used the giant kit, the left hand holding the boulder and the right hand holding the chain attached to masonry. For the feet I used the hooves of course and the head was converted using the horned giant head and a single large eye from the chaos spawn kit. I cut out the giants face and greenstuffed the eye in the center. It was quick, easy and came out great. I'd post pics but I'm terrible at photography. The gorgon and jabberslythe I have no idea.

Thanks! That is a great idea. I may have to make two. I love the idea of being able to finally have some shooting in the chaos lists. Double Cygors and as many ungors with bows as I can grab.

We have a number of threads about alternative models for the beastmen over in the painting forum of The Herdstone (http://z2.invisionfree.com/herdstone/index.php?showforum=204).

The one from Blood moon looks good, but I had forgotten about the Nazgul. That would work as well, and since it's plactic, wont crush my other minis. Now I just need to find a Gorgon.

What about a Keeper of Secrets for the Gorgon?

That should work as well.
Are you allowed to use Lotr models at GW Whfb tournaments?

Scroll down to see the collectors dragon models. The Nightmare Dragon looks about right.

I believe GW no longer cares since the last movie came out. Anyone know otherwise?

I had some ideas for the Jabberslythe that is a fun little idea, see what I was going to use for the body was the old plastic dragon- http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat1300235&prodId=prod1130314

And switch out the arms for the talons from- http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat320008a&prodId=prod1400032

And with some green stuff for fur on the nid joints and the head for a more jabberwocky head.

Alternatively was going to use the Thing in the Woods with the wings from a Carrion- http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat1300336&prodId=prod1020027
