Fishmen and Ferro Beasts

Some time ago I took some quick photos of my Fishmen I got from Wargames Foundry and I promised to take some better photos at a later point. As things turned out I never got around to do so, but now I found some other sci-fi Fishmen from Wargames Supply Dump and I thought it would be a good time to take out the two old Fishmen again.

And lately it seems that Rogue Trader Ferro Beasts have been the big thing in the Oldhammer community and of course I needed some of my own too. So after Christmas I put in an order with Black Tree Design and added a couple of their Rust Monsters to my order. 

 A couple of Marines get ambushed on a swampy Death World.

I found some old mushroom terrain from Scotia Grendel.

I think the Wargames Supply Dump Fishmen look a bit dated compared to the ones from Foundry, but they are good enough for me. I am thinking of using them as Lesser Fishmen, kind of a lower state of evolution to the more advanced Foundry Fishmen who are clever enough to use more equipment.

And a closer look at the Ferro Beasts together with a RT Medic.

The medic is not all finished yet, I need to add a Blood Angels logo to the red circle on the banner. I think I want to paint it on myself rather than use a transfer, but my free hand is not so good yet, so I want to practise some more before I give it a go.

Luckily these Ferro Beasts don't eat power armour.


  1. Cool, retro stuff Jonas, fantastic :) Those Ferro Beasts turned out really well.

    How much Deathworld terrain do you have now? It must be starting to accumulate well at this stage.

    1. I don't know, but actually I don't have that much after all, since much of what I have is only half way done and so on. But I really do plan to do something serious about it all this year. I have a lot of stuff I would love to finish or make some small updates on.

  2. Wow, those are nice! Any chance seeing them in action anytime soon?

    1. I don't know, but I hope so. But the best chance is probably seing the Marines in action again.

  3. Seriously cool stuff - Love it! /Hans
