Wild men and Untamed Beasts

I had great plans for this bank holiday weekend.

The time had come to ride my bike again, bask in sunshine and hang out with friends. Of course none of this happened since I caught an awful cold and I spent most of the time sneezing in bed alongside a pile of used tissues.

It's not all that bad though as I at least had time to go back to some sculpting and painting.
Yesterday I saw the preview of the new chaos warband for Warcry: the Untamed Beasts and the idea of chaotic savages of the wilderness of Ghur awoke the inspiration to keep going with my Sons of Or.

So long story short, here you have another warrior of the Appalachian Tribes





It is again a pretty simple conversion from the golden kit of the Kairic Acolytes with a collection of bits from savage looking bits from a variety of kits (bonesplitters, beastmen Ungor and chaos blood reavers) with some green stuff to enhance the savage and wild aesthetic of the tribes.


Though I am a very slow painter the Sons of Or are a project I am very fond of, dating back to the very first days of AoS, and I still try to find the time to keep working on them and make them a playable warband. Sooner or later I will find the courage to go back to my Wanderer King and do him justice.

Here is the warband as it stands now:

  2. Hey mate,

    I am glad to read you like the Untamed Beast warband, as I was involved in their design (although the final sculpt was done by the amazing Gaku Matsubayashi).
    Great to see you found them inspiring, I am a big fan of your Sons of Or as you know, and I would love to see more of these guys.

    The cool thing is Warcry is going to be the perfect game for you to play this warband. Let's arrange a game when it is out!

    cheers,
