Flesh-Eater Courts: Liverbone court army [31/12/16]

Things are slowly getting back to normal (well almost…) now that my winter bug has gone for good. With joyous delight I’ve started to build up my court with additional model from the ‘start collecting’ battalion for the Flesh-Eater Courts.

The collection is currently in work in progress, mainly because I don’t have my second battleline for a full 1,000pt army to play. Therefore, once I’ve added additional units of Crypt ghouls into the army I’ll be happy enough to use it in AOS games.

Collection so far:

Ghoul king on Terrorgheist

The rumour of King Rens rise to dominance

King Ren of the Liverbone court rides upon his Behemoth to war against any who dares enter his land without trade of diplomacy (basically, trading human cattle for enterance and a truce). He was called Ren Ashtheon in the Age of Myth, who once ruled a small kingdom in Aqshy until the Age of Chaos arrived. Escaping  with his life, the king was lost on the wastelands for days, months even years. He feasted on his own kin to survive and journey on in the never ending realm, until he met a dying Ghoul from an aftermath of a battle that took place not too long ago. The Ghoul king blessed him with his sickly black magic, ascending the Ren to a true Ghoul king. With his apotheosis and delusional thirst for battle, he was henceforth known as Ren Liverbone, and amassed an army ready for war to take back his kingdom from Chaos.

The Terrorgheist is still a work in progress on painting the model, but looks impressive so far. Once the Terrorgheist is completed, I’ll be painting the Ghoul king separately to avoid complication. He’ll be riding the behemoth to war as my general for the army, for both pitched battles and path to glory campagin. 

Ghoul king (Sychophant)
The second ghoul king is a metal model from the undead Bloodbowl team. The model is nearly complete with only the base to be decorated for the final touch.

Crypt Haunters and Crypt Infernal Coutiers
The Crypt Haunters are slightly altered to have their heads be similar to the Ogre ghouls, showing a dramatical change from their hefty big size to a thin body with bones sprouting out. I like how the Haunters look a lot more untaural for their faces being Ogre like with thin bodies that looks deformed from years of depraved feasting on the battle field. The Infernal is nothing new, apart from a bit of an alteration to fit the small wings on its shoulders ( I’ve kinda made the wrong model body for the Infernal, but my creative skills did its best at making an Infernal anyway).
Crypt Ghouls and Crypt Ghast Courtiers
The first set of ten Crypt ghoul models were made into a unit of six, and two Crypt Ghast Courtiers. There’s another unit ten Ghouls to assemble for the first of three units. Hopefully I’ll be able to make unit of thirty Ghouls to get the most out of their attacks.

Crypt Horrors
These were shown in a previous post not too long ago, now in progress of being painted in the colours of death! (Que over dramatic drum beat). The unit leader is already completed and looking gruesome from his bloodsoaked mutated hands. The rest will be done after painting my Terrorgheist, outcoming in a full unit of six models of Crypt Horrors that’ll feast on my opponents infantry for supper (no matter wether its flesh, rotten flesh, bones, bark or warp forms).

I hope you guys have enjoyed this post, and hope you all have a happy new year! ☺

  1. Hayao Miyazaki from Japan. His studio is responsible the anime films Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, Nausicaa. I’m a fan of the studio. Your Haunters reminded me of Spirited Away.

    1. Ah yes now I know who you mean now. Yeah I’ve seen a couple of studio Ghibli films, Pom Poko is my favourite. A lot of his films inspired me to do manga art in my younger days a decade ago (all of a sudden I’m having a nostalgia moment lol). Which studio Ghibli films did you like most?

      The models do have some similarities to spirited and away, might watch the film again to see what influence to create next.

      1. I’ve seen Princess Mononoke at school years ago, I remember my teacher saying how the film portrays female characters as strong and independent people, as well as characters not being entirely good and evil. I’ve never seen Nausicaa, is it a good film to watch?

        Thanks you, I’ll hopefully post an update on the collection very soon.

  2. Nausicaa is really good. In my humble opinion Princess Mononoke would not have enjoyed it’s success if it was not for Nausicaa. That movie too portrays a strong female lead with characters not being entirely good and evil. The art is closely similar, the plot is solid and contains character development. It’s a must watch for any Studio Gibli fan.

    1. Sounds good, I’ll probably watch Nausicaa if I see it on sale. It’s been ages since I’ve watched a studio Ghibli film, so that’ll be the next I’ll watch.

      Thank you for sharing your opinion 🙂


  3. Nice work here. The Ogre heads on the Crypt Haunters does a good job of tying the ogre models in with the rest of the undead. If I could make a suggestion (if it’s not too late!) perhaps add some spines/bone spikes to the ogre models to change their profile a little and also help tie them in with the existing Undead models. Just coming out of their necks, backs, etc. You could even drill out their eye sockets…

    1. Thank you!
      The only problem with adding spines/bone spikes on the Ogre models is that I’ve already painted three out six models, which I don’t want to ruin the painted models if I’ve made a mistake. However, I could do some kit bashing with the next three Ogre models, since they’ve not been painted yet. Thank you for the suggestion.
