Since last post I have received lots of nice messages and emails of support for which I am incredibly grateful! Some of you even made spontaneous donation which I really believe I don't deserve but again, I was delighted to see how many amazing people gravitate around this hobby.
Since you were all very vocal about your wishes to see some of my works again I decided to go back to my Ghurians this sunday and revisit one of my earlier conversions: the horn blower.
This fellow has a very important role within the tribe. He is the one entrusted with the holy Jagdhurn, whose notes announce the beginning of a holy hunt.
The decision to revisit this conversion comes from the fact that I am back working on my Sons of Or and have found in the Kairic Acolytes kit the base models I sought for my ghurians. In the past I used the bloodreaver (back then the only suitably naked human model in AoS range) for this project but after seeing the acolytes kit I knew they were more in line with what I had in my mind when I envisioned the Sons of Or. Barefoot, no marks or tattoos, a potentially quite sober look and a great base for conversions as so many hobbyists have proven with their work in the past year (first and foremost Duncan Rhodes amazing spearmen). So I bought a kit and started doodling with them back a few months ago but then shifted my attention to other projects and lost focus. Now I feel like coming back to them and I am working on three of these at a time with plans for many bestial additions to the band: sabertooh beasts converted form gryph-hounds, winged black krakaros and the creation of a new leader for my hunters: Or-Sha, the bride of Orar, based on the amazing new Darkoath Warqueen.
My ghurians will son be expanded then so keep an eye on here for more Or-worshipping tribal shenanigans!
