Warmahordes on a budget: The Mountain King

Image
Some months ago I saw a user on the privateer press forums that made his own Mountain King from a Fantastic Four Thing action figure, the idea was pretty sweet and I can honestly say that my jealous levels reached critical mass.

Last week though, after finishing a unit of fennblades I got myself thinking: "What if I built myself a mountain king like that dude on ppf?" and on the next Saturday morning there I was at my local flea market looking for a suitable figure.
I found a headless hulk that I suppose is this one [link], and after a good week in a chemical bath I started to work on it.

Unfortunately I only started to take pictures 2 days in so here is the rundown of what I got so far:
- Disassembled every piece, my idea was that by doing so it would be easier to cut and pin the rocks.

Having some time on my hands lately, I dedicated some of it to paint some minis from the lead & plastic pile.

They are supposed to be used in "Song of Blades & Heroes" but I might rebase them to squares and make them Mordheim compatible.
There are some mold lines that I clearly missed but some of them (those that bug the face in two layers) are really a pain to fix. I also can't blend for the life of me so I cheated my way in with Army Painter's Strong Tone
