Here's something different. There's a tournament/campaign weekend in about 6months time run by the Tempus Fugitives called The Vampire Coast. The rulespack includes additional units you may pick to expand on your armies which are not included in the rulebooks themselves. These are often flavour units, or rules for units which no longer "exist".
One of the beastmen units is the old favourite, pestigors. Pestiogrs are basically a variation on Bestigors, and have the Fear special rule and a 5+ scaly skin save to got with their heavy armour, for 16points each. Well, I thought I'd have a bash at making a champion and see how he looked.
Basically, it was a excuse for me to get my hands on the nurgle plastic champion, which I've been dying to get an excuse for since it came out. I'm not afraid to say I love the plastic characters.
I pinched the carnifex toe technique (tm) and instead used tyranid warrior feet (again, spare from a couple of shrike conversions from a couple of years back. Massive bitzbox ftw). The head is from a normal gor, I went for the bug eyed helmet again. I greenstuffed fur in appropriate places and kapow, done.
I went out of my way to give him fur to make him beast like, but also wanted it to look shaggy and tufty, like big chunks are dropping out. This also gave me an excuse to keep as much scabby, 'orrible detail as possible on the model.
Anyway, this guy is utterly huge. A simple, striking conversion! I've also won an ebay auction for 15 pestigors in a bundle for £25 posted. I would've paid upto £35 so added bonus!
Paintwise...I'm not sure where to go with him next. I'm debating whether to keep him albino or just go for generic pale diseased with dark hair. Suggestions welcome!
