I've also got some pictures of the Centigors and Minotaurs, both from Eureka as well.

Nice! On my to do list.
Better paint some of my existing armies first though...

@Gunslinger76.  Thanks.  Hope your Beastmen project goes well.

I appreciate the support, thanks everyone!

The boar riders came in and I trimmed the riders off. Here's what I ended up with:

I'm pretty happy with how they came out, so this is what I'll most likely be sticking with for the chariots. It's a little extra work trimming the orcs off, and I'll add some green stuff to patch up the boars, but I like the look it achieved.

I'm hoping for a rough public opinion poll. I have the khorne daemon strips and the Eureka Orge beast man. I'm trying to decide which to use for beastherds and which for bestigors. I've got ideas for both sides, but I'm curious for what others think also. Feedback welcome!

What size In The fluff are the herders and beastigors? The 6mm minotaurs from micro world games might fit the bill

I did take a look at those initially.  I think they're going to come up too small though, even for beastherds. Bestigors are supposed to bit bigger, a bit beefier, and hitting a little harder. For me, it comes down to which looks like it'd mess your day up more!  >:D

Did a little kitbash to make some of my leaders. The model on the far left will be my general. The torso is from Magister millistrum's 15 mm Minotaur. The legs and horns are from Eureka's Orge Beastmen leader. The axe head and nose horn are from MM's 22mm minotaurs.

The far right will be my Doombull. It's one of MM's 22mm minotaurs. I added the lower side of the ax head to flesh out the look of a raging extra hulked out Minotaur.

The regular minotaurs and ogre Beastmen are for scale reference.

Thanks Marell! I appreciate the support. I'm going to shelve it until the end of the month as I finish getting ready for Adepticon, but in April and going forward I hope to start basically g and getting paint in these guys.

Not sure how easy they would be to source in the US but take a look at Ral Partha beastmen. Scale is between the Eureka ogre and minotaur. Got some today and very pleased. Ill mix then with ogres for my bestigor units.

As you're in the U.S. Blindhorizons' suggestion of Microworld is bang on. I haven't got any of these as the shipping is a bit pricey to go for a small order and if they're not right and I've gone large.... Beastkin brutes look like they might be a starter for herd kin as well.

Thanks for adding those links! I'll need to look into them a little closer. As of right now, I think I'll be using the old Khorne Daemon Horde for the beastherd, and the Eureka minis for the bestigors. I need to put in an order w Pendraken for the herdkin.

That order from Pendraken should round out the army for now so I'll be able to get painting and basing. Maybe I'll even get motivated enough to join June's ToEP!

Have a look at Magister Militum. I've got some of these and they are at least on par with pendraken and offer some variation.

I went to order some of the Beestmen with Bows from Pendraken and saw they had been rotated out of their online store. Does anyone know their intent to restock or re-release? Alternatively,  I don't suppose anyone has 60 or so of those lying around, do they?

Just wanted to give a quick update. I reached out to Pendraken and they gave some outstanding customer service. They did say that the mold was old, but it wasn't too badly worn and they were willing to cast up an order for me. Im excited to get a hold of these to wrap my army up and start getting some paint in it.
