Post NWG Regroup

Now that the dust has settled, it's time to decide what to do next with the fimir. As I already mentioned here, I do have some tidying up to do before I get into the next new unit. I've been mulling things a bit though, and I've decided that there is one unit I kind of want to do before doing starting on more sensible additions to the army, a unit of fimir nobles who will be fielded as chaos ogres. You can see what I've got here. I have five of the original metal nobles and three forge world fimir. I'll need to convert a standard bearer and musician, probably using ogre bits. I found I'm a bladed tail short, so if anybody out there has a bladed fimir tail they want to trade or sell, give me a holler.

Another idea is swirling about my head after seeing all the fantastic display boards at NWG. I'd think I'd like to do cool board for the fimir. A sacrificial pool ringing by a crumbling stone circle is the current notion, with a stone outcrop set above the pool where sacrifices can be hurled into the depths. The henge would be ancient, with some of the stones collapsed or listing into the swamp. I'd love to add all kinds of little details, bronze vessels, weapons and the bones of victims visible under the water at the edges of the pool, sunken stones with hidden half-dead gazing out from the vegetation and all kinds of other bits. I've already looked into getting fimir-themed Celtic knotwork etched in brass to go around the edge of the board. It'll take a while, but I think it would be worth it.
