    The Albion Zoo - Fimir & Friends

    Well met, seers. I've been away far too long. Long enough for most of my projects to roll over for others to spring forth.

    I am currently working on a Fimir warband for Age of Sigmar. I use Destruction-keyword units, as Fimir have been placed there, although they have no warscrolls yet. It's all proxy!

    A fuller post about the first leg of this project can be read here:
    http://www.mywargame.com/2015/08/30/...mar-the-fimir/

    Here are some pictures of what I've achieved so far.







    The majority of the force will be Fimir of two types - the smaller models are being played as Savage Orcs, while the larger Bibby/FW models are being used as Ogres.

    I didn't notice that Fimir were under the Destruction alliance, I just assumed there were Chaos for some reason (wishful thinking probably!).

    Promising work so far. I quite like the subtle skin colours.

    Damn these are superb..... think i'm going to have to move the Fimir warband up the schedule! I just need to get some more heads from somewhere (I have a Meargh but with no head ).

    Keep it up!

    I once had the same plan for AoS, but using the FW fimir minis as a baseline. Was thinking about an iron age Britain-style game board and everything, but I am now convinced that "sparse" scenery isn't a particularly good fit for the game.

    By the way, I already emailed Forgeworld and they replied that their monster warscrolls are currently being written.

    Impressive! I can't say I've seen the Forge World Fimir models being converted before so kudos.

    I'm not really a fan of 2-handed weapons on the Fimir, especially the weapons provided by FW. I also like to be different, so any excuse to hack them up.

    Glad you like it - it's great fun putting together!

    The Forgeworld models are great for kit bashing. I've been making a selection of armaments for them.

    With the hunched poses I'm surprised the FW minis are so good for conversions.

    Cool swamp-beasts by the way

    Re: The Albion Zoo - Age of Sigmar Fimir & Friends

    I'm of the opinion that anything can be converted. However, there's only so much you can do with their poses. I'm sculpting my own to fill the gaps now.

    Here's Morrígu, who'll be the overall Matriarch for the group. My Fimir will tread a dark path.

    Fimir trod a dark path anyway! They were the favoured race of the Chaos gods before mankind came along.

    Your sculpt looks like it's got a good start!
