Fimir - Late Night Wyrms

It's a late one here at the mumblings. Having had a fairly marathon day of modelling and painting with me aould pal Craig of Blog of Grudges, we've settled into the wee hours with a combination of fimir monstrous cavalry construction and dwarf warrior batch painting, which we've helped along with one or two sherries*.

I've managed to finally put together the first of my marlwyrm riders (skullcrushers). I had a devil of a time deciding what kind of saddle arrangement you could put on a worm, finally settling on a rough hide thrown over it's back and pretty much nailed in place. I added some assorted extras to the saddle, mostly taken from ogre sprues. There's so many lovely bits of those sprues, from buckets of guts to a pig water-skin. I had some Celtic-style shields from Scibor one of which finally found a home here too.

Only three more to go...

The indefatigable Craig has been churning out great weapon-wielding dwarves, all ready for some dip bar a few bits and bobs. A very productive day, all in all.

* for sherries, see beer.


  1. Looking good! Playing against you must be a joy with those awesome custom armies, even if you lose :)
    What model did you use for the Fimir body?

    1. Thanks. And I do lose, I surely do...

      The fimir body is taken mostly from the GW savage orc boar boy kit, with the tail coming from the chaos spawn kit.

    2. I was actually talking from the perspective of your opponent :P

    3. Aha! Yes, that is also acceptable.

  2. Damn these are sweet mate! I have commented on your stuff at several other forums and just wanted to say - keep up the good and inspiring work. I wish I had the determination to stay with a custom army with the tenacity that you have. Major kudos and now paint some more wonderful half-dead :D

    Cheers Animerik/Gspirate

    1. That's very kind, thanks very much. To be frank, it's encouragement such as this that help keep me on track.

      Three more half-dead on the painting table right now...
