The Warherd is called!

My Warhammer Beastman army comes together, ready to do battle with their cousins in Chaos - the Skaven. I've spent the last two weeks or so getting these tidied up, onto movement trays, with painted banners and so forth.

The battline stretches across the table, Minotaurs, Gors, Ungors, Warhounds and more...


Even the creature they call "The Blessed One" although the blessings of Chaos are strange indeed...


Drawn to the smell of blood, Chaos Warhounds are unleashed upon the foe...



The Beastigors, elite of the Beastmen prepare to charge. There will be good eating tonight...



An Ungor regiment prepares for battle. If they do well, they will be allowed to feast on the scraps that the rest of the Gor's leave behind. If they fail, they may well end up being the feast...



The Battle Standard Bearer of the army. His presence inspires the Beastmen to even greater acts of savagery. I suspect he also inspires humans facing him not to get captured...



And a shot from the other side of the battlefield. "Stamp and trample! Gor and crush!"

Great painting. I think that the human victim on your BSB is slightly letting the side down, especially considering he's such a centrepiece. I particularly like the picture of the herd in all it's goaty glory.

I really like your banners. The freehand is fantastic!!
Have you thought about using wash on them to lend a more 'soiled' look?

Good job man!

....are those centigors back there??

Thanks for the comments. I agree that the BSB just doesn't look right. It's about the 4th time I've tried to get that figure/victim looking like it works and it's been fail every time. I think I might just have to start again with a different figure.

Freehand stuff was rather easy, just used a pencil to sketch what I wanted it to look like more or less, then filled in the gaps with Gore Red.
