I wanted to use one of my Beast Face Miniatures beastmen to make a Pestigor (a diseased beastman of Nurgle). The original model is below; sculpted by John Pickford, the beastman has mutated to have 3 arms, and is one of my favourites from the range.

A large gut, moob (hidden under the ball-holding hands) and expanded rear took care of the obesity element. To give the model that humourous feel associated with Nurgle, I dug out an old Citadel Nurgling from my boxes and mounted him on the Pestigor's shoulders. A liberal sprinkling of greenstuff pustules, and the conversion was nearly done.
Happily, this was something I was able to replicate with a little help. John Pickford came to my aid again by knocking me up a length of ribbed greenstuff around a copper wire core. It was then a simple job to added the little suckers at the tips:

Over the next 8 months, the team will gradually be built with contributions from other TFF members across the world. I'm looking forward to seeing some of this chap's team-mates!
