|9x Chaos Broo|
|10 x Fantasy Cavalry Wolves|
"I have always thought that those very early Beastmen/Broo were the best Beastmen we ever did." - Bryan Ansell. I think he'd be right. The Chaos Broo range are hugely evocative. Dressed in rags, adorned with grizzly trophies, a psychotic maraudering warband of half-human half beast. There are many classic goat-headed types, reminiscent of Goya or Fichero and Levl as much as Hammer Horror, Goat of Mendes style twisted evil types, the like of which John Blanche graced the cover of the Citadel Compendium (model here). Alongside those are aberrations such as the two-headed lizard man straight out of Fighting Fantasy. No wonder everyone played Runequest back in the day. Wardy has a written up a pretty good overview of official Broo figures from a variety of manufacturers, and of course the CCMwiki is the place to see the Citadel Runequest range, in the lead as it were.
Wolves. A bit stuck really, there are I think, 3 possible models, all of which aren't very good. The Chronicle range are far superior monsters, but all have saddles, which would take some extensive modding to make into something more fitting.
Trolls. Again, nothing perfect - most of these are "just" normal trolls, not flying, not time-slippy weird things.
3 CO1 fighters might be worth a go - perhaps some classic horned helmed flail/mace proto-chaos warriors from the Chaos Fighters sub-range, or something a bit more disgusting and grubby, like brood mares...
|C21 Plague Rider|
Keeping things Tr00 and Kvlt... with the right paint job (think Red Skull mask rather than actual skeleton) the Plague Rider could work really nicely, both mount and rider look forlorn and despondent. Mounting the champion does make a lot of sense, as it improves armour and speed. Without giving too much away, hit and run tactics might come into play, the Toughness and Attack reduction is potentially devastating.
This is definitely got a specific aesthetic, filth-encrusted, deranged and very slightly carnivalesque, over-hyphenated, crust-punk neo-folk version of the Wickerman. All together I recon I'd need around £140 worth of old lead. But to be blunt, the wolves are crap, but it's hard to resist that distant braying... the call of the Broo!
