Savage Beastmen of The Nega-Zone...

...or whatever I decide to use them for.


This is one of those, "I wonder what it would look like..." projects. The basis for this project was a dusty old box of plastic Warhammer Orc Warriors that had been taking up space for years. I decided to see if I could make them into something for use in my Pulp games. I suppose I could have just put them together and painted them up as orcs, but where is the fun in that.

What I ended up doing was putting them together pretty much stock but I flipped the heads upside down. This may sound weird at first, but there is a method to that madness. I added some matted, dreadlocked tresses to them with some grey stuff and then distressed their weapons. I also added some bits of this and that to their chest to hide the odd connection that the flipped heads created.

I also wanted to make some of them armed with some sort of handgun and so I took the spear hands and turned them into rifle hands by adding stocks made from putty, muzzles made out of shield spokes that had been bored out, and adding a trigger block with pieces from a tank model.

The end result was pretty cool and I really wish I had a camera that could show you the full effect but once I picked out the details that I wanted t stand out as the new faces on what had been the orc heads, these creatures really tok on a life of their own. I'll post some better pics later when I get mre of them painted up.

  1. Pretty cool idea, Eli.

    Look forward to seeing some clearer pictures so I can really see the inverted heads.
