Great work! Love the painting and the theme (I am fond of barbarians and prehistoric settings myself). And I heartily approve of your gaming philosophy; there's a lot to be learned from that!

Unfortunately I can't see Barbarus himself. He appears to have been uploaded to a different image hosting site than the rest of them and it won't load for me! Any chance you could reupload him to tabletopwelt.de?

Okay, how about now?




I hope you can see this.

Anyway, thanks everyone.
Nice that you are as excited about this stuff as I am.
It's just such a cool theme.


So here's a little tutorial to make your own primitive huts (or rather tents):

You make the basic shape out of tinfoil, by just creating a sphere, compressing it more and more and slamming it on a table a few times to create this shape here... and you push into them with your finger from above




Then you cover them with a thin layer of your favorite sculpting material, in my case it was Super Sculpey, which has to be baked to harden, so I baked them... and this is what they looked like after:




And here they are sprayed with brown paint





Next I made the hides to go on top of the structures... I used brown acrylic filler from the hardware store.
I spread it out, let it set on foil, and then ripped it into pieces:






Then I glued the pieces to the huts.
Oh, and as you can see I also made tusks, again from Super Sculpey. They went onto the huts to create entrances and indicate a structure made from bones and tusks on the inside by sticking out on the tops there...




After that all left to do is painting them and add some pieces of a rough fabric to indicate some kind of door, hanging cloth, whatever, and they're done:

I can! Thank you. Very nice! That is actually a Schleich hyena, not Papo.

Thanks, I tried to find a level somewhere between "oldschool" and modern, more "artsy" approaches.

I enjoyed the painting standard back in the day, but one might say the world has moved on...




Here's one of my mounted champions, another toy conversion.

Don't have a name for him yet.
His story is kinda done, though. He's sort of a wild card, in Barbarus' tribe the "Beastmasters", he's one of the fiercest warriors.
Also pretty unpredictable. Khorne has an eye on him.












Cheers!

That pig is tremendous, in more than one sense of the word.  Great idea.
