Beastmen of Tzeentch with a hint of tengu.
Edit: the photos on this post are more than a bit dodgy. Ill do better next time, honest.
Tzeentch is associated with avian themes, so Tzeentchian beastmen are largely birdmen rather than the traditional goatmen. But they retain bestial horns.
Somehow the Citadel miniature designers managed to make that mash up of influences look good too, kudos.
As I am tying this Silver Tower project in with my mythical, pseudo Japanese project, it dawned on me to treat the Silver Tower Tzaangor(s? I dont know what the plural is) as tengu.
Tengu are a type of yokai or kami in Japanese folklore, traditionally with human and avian characteristics. Over the years the original beaked face has often been turned into the Pinocchio nosed, red face that you may be familiar with.
Each look is as legitimate as the other, but the more bird like face is both more interesting to me and more appropriate for what I am doing with these models.
The Tzaangor equipment isnt terribly Japanese looking really, probably closer to Chinese than Japanese I think.
For these purposes Im happy to assume that the tengu have their own culture and traditions, at least partly independent of other local (imaginary) cultures. Which means that using these models in my Shonen Knives is perfectly acceptable to me, and quite fun too.
I painted the Tzanngor in the scheme associated with the army and with the models in the Silver Tower project. When mixing models from many sources in a force, it pays to keep a tight rein on the palette.
Im not sure what I will paint for Silver Tower next, but I think that it might be the scuttlings.
