Showcase: Blackstone Fortress: Chaos Beastmen

Published 2022-12-11

Beastmen are destined to become the outcasts of Imperial society. They are shunned and are often hunted down and killed as the Imperium has little tolerance for any who deviate from the perfection of the baseline human form in mind or body. Mutation is considered a heretical crime against the Emperor of Mankind by Imperial authorities because of its connection to sympathy with or worship of Chaos.

Miniature Review

The Beastmen look too carton in my opinion, with big heads stuck on human sized bodies and regular gear. The Space Wolf Wulfen are scaled a lot better and have much nicer poses. I'd love to see something a bit closer to them, maybe with a few different mutations.

I mixed sand with glue and applied it to the base. I then drybrushed it with Eshin Grey, then Mechanicus Standard Grey. I then painted the outer base with Rhinox Hide.
