Ech, you never stop amazing and surprising with your minis, great ideas all around! ;) I like the cost sign on that trombone and the unholy leftover-bitz creature is so cool, it could be a weird official model!

Thank you as always the feedback is very welcome'd :)
Right time to post again, I had a really busy september, and finished a bunch of stuff. I'll put those two units now, maybe a few others will follow. Can someone tell me if the picture size has remarkably decreased? @Farmer7574 / @Borgnine ?

Here we have a Lykanis, which is more or less a werewolf hero -> perfect unit for interrupt mounted, flying, shooting and/or spellcasting units.

And, while Gobbos can't have enough catapults, here we have another one ;)

@Theerteen It seems that your pic size has decreased, this page loaded quite quickly for me this time.

Awesome latest additions - that wolf is sick and I love the novel idea for a catapult. Great stuff!

Awesome update - that wolf looks pretty sick and the pose is ace - did you pose him like that or did Mantic add a new werewolf to their range? The blood splatter on him fits perfectly ;) And seconding @Farmer7574 about the catapult - this is probably the crazest interpretation of it that I've ever seen!

Thanks guys, I'm pretty happy how this whole circus thing is coming together, and most of the new stuff is fun to do. The "catapult" especially, because it wasn't that much conversion work to get a funny result :)
@Borgnine the Werewolf is one of the standard Mantic ones, and to be honest, I really don't like those guys. Especially the one I have here, because in a neutral standing pose it looks just dumb, with his arm down like it's shoveling some earth or something. I was lucky to have sculpted that monolith long before, and the idea to hang him there popped up - and now I really consider it one of the coolest posings I have ever done, and I use it often in my lists ;)

Here we go -or better roll- again

And for some completionist thing, here are (not complete) group shots of the circus so far:

Holy crap, your crazy train (or a unicycle) clearly doesn't have any brakes! They are superb! Just what are they representing in KoW, some cavalry? That has to be some of the weirdest cavalry unit ever and I'm saying that when we have AoS existing.

The group shot is glorious - one can now really appreciate the craziness - and the basing really sells the effect of a 'goblin circus' that set itself up on the outskirts of some poor fantasytown ;)

@Borgnine Thanks again :) Yep they're meant to be either Fleabag Riders or Fleabag Sniffs (aka normal cavalry or cavalry with bows), depending on what I need - but I made them mainly because I had them xD

Here we go again with some heros, one I had in mind since doing the first planning for the circus - The bearded Lady (Troll Bruiser)

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FB9UZSRw.jpg%3F1&hash=9e115b325828037677096489dcc58b7a

And more goblinish, and perfect for the Kings of War third edition which is out now. They had no perfect fitting spot in the list, but now we have Stinggits - Kind of Goblin Assassins, and equipped with throwing knives. See for yourself ;)

proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2F7Gtxg23.jpg%3F1&hash=56faa9706eea970a957bcb0e0aa01eb6



I think the guy here is best to play as a Wiz (goblin mage) with the Fireball Spell.. but like the rest he may fill some other positions in the upcoming lists.

'The Bearded Troll Lady'... definitely warrants a look xD

What a coo and unique mini, an excellent fit for the circus. Nice fire-breathing gobbo and beautiful army shots too!

Thanks @Farmer7574 , I was very lucky to shoot this one, there was an online fantasy store which closed and threw out single minis for ridiculous prices - I think I paid 3 € for her or something. And I recognized I posted the same pic twice o.o

Another one I urged to do - The Ring-the-bell-Game, aka Strongman Game, aka Goblin ASB

Fascinating what one can arrange on a 20x20 base xD (...there will be something else in the next time, even bigger :innocent::cool:)

As I mentioned when we've met, this is amazing! I love the not-so-subtle elf discrimination and I am as always amazed how you just keep churning those circus-related ideas, every time when I think that's it ;)
