Ok... I re-created a little of my work on Sunday night. I sort of got all fired up then and did a bunch. Then Paint Shop crashed and... poof. I said some bad words.
I'm trying to create a parts file to build these up with... I got 3 heads, and some legs... eww, the legs. Any suggestions? I ain't happy with em. It seems my strength happens to be faces.
So, here's a partial Goaty-dude. Bear in mind, its raster except for the head, which I did manage to save from Sunday. Also, its the first no-paper mini I've ever done. I really wish my tablet would work with GIMP...
The thing is.. I drew them like the original GW(tm) mini's looked. So they can't even stand, much less walk or charge....realistically speaking. Hoofed critters have a fetlock, and I was trying to depict that. But they just looked..... WRONG.
Yeah, the backs will be tough. You did a good job Cowboy. I'll hit you up for the backs on these. Heh.

They are spot on for GW beastmen..... just like the 3D sculpts. And as such should be completely unable to walk (except for a sort of plodding up and down motion). This is in keeping with GW scale and attention to anatomy Look at a space marine.... no room in that armour for a neck and the waist and rib cage meet (space marines have no time to digest food, so no need for a GI tract).
But they look cool
The face is really good, shame you lsot the other vector stuff
I have found one page of the Citadel Compendium I - 1983 ! I suppose, this gem is a bit of Warhammer history (I for myself know nearly nothing about Warhammer tradition ...). This might be interesting for you. The problem is: I can't upload a pic here technically - no menu function to do that !?

Bestigors (big with heavy armour): great weapon and heavy armour
Centigors: spear, light armour and shield. May also have throwing axes. Or great weapon and may also take throwing axes

Looking forward to these guys.
BTW, algoesnext, if you really want to add smell, go to the hunting department at Wally World or your nearest megamart, and there are a variety of smelly liquids available to cover the hunter's scent. I've a pretty good story about a bottle of skunk scent, but this isn't the place. Trust me, one drop will probably give you all the smell you need.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
Wow ! Definitely old-school. okumarts, yes, that's the link. There you find the old Citadel Compendium I (with 1st edition Warhammer rulesets). revgunn, there is one page, which shows "Goat headed Ogres" (! ;D), some forefathers of your beastmen, maybe ... .
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

okumarts: My taxes are still at the accountant. They are backlogged.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

Vermin King: Not all progress is beneficial...
Jul 9, 2020 10:35:32 GMT -9
cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.

Vermin King: Worked fine here

Punkrabbitt: It's working fine for me o.0

cowboyleland: For some reason Hoard 93 isn't downloading for me. No error message, just nothing happens when I click.
