Fomorian Heroes WIP
Got a little bit of time to work on a couple of Fomorian heroes! Both in varying stages of completion. The one on the left (former Troll Outpost figure) is about 80% painted, and still needs a base. Just started converting the one on the right. Still need to clean up the neck joint, sculpt feet and a tail before I can start painting.
I have decided that I am completely on board with the idea that Fimir reproduce by burying sacrificial victims alive in the swamp and engaging in some sort of spooky voodoo to raise them back up as new members of the clan. I figure all of those variables can account for the subtle differences in in morphology of some of the figures (number of digits, digitigrade vs. plantigrade, etc.) and also relates to a few different fantasy sources I dig.
Still working out what to do about further conversions (still waiting on Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter delivery...) Also thinking about allied or mercenary troops. Thinking about half-orcs, undead, or....?
