The Oathbones – Part 10

I seem to have developed an obsession with kitbashing Cawdor gangers lately…

…of course now I just need to redirect this energy into getting some of them painted…

    Good to see you have more goodies lined up. 🙂

      Thank you! I’m looking forward to getting on to these – I’ve no idea when but they were fun to kitbash and they should be fun to paint. I’ve just realised that I never listed the parts I used for any of them, suffice to say none of them were built exclusively using parts from the original kit. 🙂

    Nice little conversions. They add a lot of personality to the figures.

    The Cawdor are made for conversions and the grungier the weapons look the better. This is a great looking motley crew if I do say so myself and I will be looking forward to seeing them painted up 🙂

      Cheers – I love the scrabby, grungy look of them. I can’t seem to stop kitbashing them so once I get them all painted I’ll have a horde of manky fanatics ready to spread the faith through the underhive! 🙂

    Nothing wrong with that obsession at all man. These are great and where OH where are these heads from???? I especially love that first head.

    • Wudugast

      Cheers dude! The first head is cool isn’t it, as soon as I saw it I knew I needed it in my life!
      Right, working our way down the list we have;
      First one – Necromantic Horror Blood Bowl team (the new team)
      Second – Forge World Cawdor heads upgrade pack
      Third – Sisters of Battle Repentia (with purity seal trimmed away)
      Forth and Fifth – Forge World Cawdor heads upgrade pack again.

    Very enjoyable watching the Oathbones take shape over your series up updates to the gang and its models. The Cawdor aesthetic is very appealing for conversions and the release of the SOB units allows for even more possibilities.

    I spent yesterday finding my box of Cawdor built shortly after their release only to realize that I’d converted more than a dozen additional models from GW zombie bodies and Frostgrave Cultist models. Looking at my output from many months ago reminded me that they are the first human models I can remember that encourage Orky style conversions on a human scale. I’ve tried making Diggas in my Ork phases but I think the conversion work is different. I labeled the box Cawdor/Frater Militia so I must have been planning Sister of Battle IG allies with all the Cawdor serving as conscripts or some such nonsense. Anyhow, I have the Forge World head pack so 2021 will likely see another box of Cawdor and a FW weapon pack or two purchased in anticipation of House of Faith.

      Cheers man, the Cawdor are just incredibly convertible aren’t they? I think you’re spot on saying that they are the most suited to that kind of thing of all the (non-Chaos) humans around; I’ve seen them as Space Marine thralls, Chaos cultists, Cities of Sigmar, living servants of Nagash, pretty much anything Inq-28. Hadn’t thought of them as diggas but again they’d be perfect there. That Frater Militia idea sounds great, I’d love to see a full Imperial Guard army using Cawdor bodies for the troops, with priests for commanders, ramshackle shrines on tanks (a budget version of what the Sisters are doing), crusaders as scions and so on. I’m thinking bits from the Garden of Morr and the Titanicus terrain to build the shrines… As usual my brain is tumbling down a bit of a rabbit hole – which is always a sign of a damn good idea! 🙂

Speak, damn you!
