What's on My Desk: Fimir "Counts-As" Conversions

I'm back this week with a look at a work-in-progress commission for a returning customer Michael P.  Michael has come to rely on my modeling skills to add a special twist to his models, and this time he wanted work done for his Warriors of Chaos Fantasy army.  Nine fimir are acting as counts-as chaos warriors.  Each fimir comes armored and has a cool looking club, but Michael wanted the models armor beefed up to represent the higher save on a chaos warrior and to add weapons to their tails.

Let's take a look at the work so far...

Each fimir's helmet is unique, though some share stylisitic similarities.  These three I've dubbed: "Thor, Skullcap, and Storm Trooper."  

The entire time I've been working on this commission, I couldn't get over the fact that these Fimir look a lot of the Koopas from Super Mario World...

"Thor" is one of my favorites, his helmet reminds me a lot of the winged one from Marvel.

I think the "Storm Trooper" helmet style is very fitting for the fimir; subtle, simple, and perfectly round.

This next set has another storm trooper-esque helmet, a funky tri-horned one, and what I've come to think of as a miner's helmet with a single prow horn.  

Remove the horn and replace it with a lamp and it has a stunning similarity to this.

This guy's headgear captures a look from an old fimir helm that had a lot of design work braided about it.

Each fimir's tail has been bound, yoked, and tied with nasty barbs, blades, and spikes.  Like the helmets, each tail-weapon is unique and expresses the individual personality of the bearer.

This is another set of my favorites (though they're all really great), but I really like how (L to R) the storm trooper, miner, and magi turned out.  Magi... Yeah, the fimir's helmet on the far right looks like an esoteric spell casters headpiece to me.  

That's it for this week and what's on my desk, come back next time to see the other projects I'm work on a the Lab!


  1. Very nice, some good helm designs there. I quite like the miner helmet.

    1. Thanks! That awesome the miner helmets are your favorites, I'm glad you liked them!

  2. All looking really cool! Just some subtle additions really make them stand out.
