Da Walkin' Shroom Farm

Hi guys - a bit more on the Gloomspite Gitz project.

I've always liked the idea and concept of Giants and I wanted to include at least one in my Gloomspite army - but I had to do something with it, both being a compulsive converter, and wanting it to fit into the Mushroom theme better.

It didn't take long before I began to get this idea of mushrooms infecting a living creature (a bit akin to that horrible fungus thing ants can contract), and an idea of the model began to form.

I took the most mindless head from the gargant kit, reposed the legs to make them look more zombie-stagger-like, and attached a bunch of mushrooms to his body and back (including the top of his head, them coming out of his brain - ew!)

Being completely Shroom-Zombified (totally a word), he needed a grot minder, giving him orders, and his own little lookout barrel. I'm really digging the vibe of this guy. :)

Also, 3 more trolls, with some minor conversions and swaps.


  1. Damn, beat me to it with the 'Shroomgargant. But it looks awesome!

    I seem to have a lot of Gargant conversions in mind at the moment. Glass mad Gargant for Underworlds. A Gargant clan for open play. I should really pull my finger out and get to it lol!

    1. Thanks a lot! I'd love to see what a Glass mad Gargant looks like - I don't even know what it is. :D

    2. A Glass Mad Gargant is from a recent issue of White Dwarf. A special multiplayer mission for Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire/Nightvault.

      It is literally a Giant gone insane from being trapped in the damned city surrounded and haunted by ghostly apparitions trapped in the Shadeglass of the city.

      I really loved the image of that in my mind and instead of just using any old giant miniature, I'd rather convert one that looks the part.

  2. Excellent! That's really going to help him fit in there. He could maybe use a few more little dinky mushrooms lower down, but doesn't need 'em.

  3. Absolutely glorious! Love the idea. Where are the mushrooms from?

    Good to have you back posting again :) you’re stuff is awesome

    1. Thanks a lot - they are from the new LoonShrine. :)
