Hey everyone, I play mordheim with some friends right from the beginning. At first we played every week but now we try to play once or twice a year. But some of them (I know you take a peak here now and then Wink ) hevent really finished a warband or take a few years to paint them. But we all wanted to have some new bands, playing 10 years with the same warband tends to become a bit boring Smile. So we decided to speed paint a warband, the warband has to be painted in a day!
I have painted a vampire army for wfb and those regiments are painted in a day, so we gonna use that techinqe.


before

after

So here some pictures of the new warband im going to paint:

The noble, sorceres and the fellblades

The beastmaster and hounds

henchmen with spears and crossbows

henchmen, and a guy im going to use as a duelist or assessin.

Looking forward to seeing how they turn out. If your "test" model is any indication, they're gonna look great!

(Although I'm a bit scared that your painted in a day warband is going to look much better than my painted in 6 months half-warband Suspect )

FEAR NOT; Fearless Leader Tom LOVES ALL Pointy Eared Wastrels equally NO MATTER how perverted. Suspect

Back on subject: Your stuff turns out JUST SO BEAUTIFULLY regardless of the speed of production. I just tend to savor the painting process, which with the cost of minis nowadays ain't a bad idea Suspect . These Guys/Gals/Thingys are going to ROCK! cheers

I have seen a Night Goblin army speed painted by solely using washes on white primer and mithril silver (for the metals). It looked pretty good.

@Ezekiel: I might bring them along but I think I'm going to play with my Kislev warband, I've seen your tables and I want too play with my personal nicest band Very Happy

@ DeafNalla:I build this warband with leftover bits (I bought a crossair box and used their cloaks for my salamander army) and some extra stuff I got from a friend of mine. If I had bought all the models I would have spend more time painting them.

Here is the first test model:

I painted the armour chainmail and shining gold.
Clothing: Hormagaunt purple
Skin: Talarn Flesh
Leather: Scorched brown
Details: Deneheb stone, adeptus battle grey.
Base: Caltarn Brown for the sand and stones Astronomican grey.


Then a wash of Badab Black wash.
I did a smal highlight with tallarn flesh on the skin and painted teeth and eyes with bleached bone.
A drybrush with graveyard earth and bone on the base, and then glue some grass and your done!

You could also see it as a base for your paints and highlight everything, but I dont have the time for that tomorow Very Happy

Very nicely done for speed painting, if only I could do that well, that fast! It takes me a usual 3 hours on one dwarf, in fear of messing them up hehe, and they are not that very good either Suspect

@Drugart: regular painted models will always be cooler then washed models, there is more tought and skill put in regular painting. But if you want to wash your models you shouldnt be afraid to mess them up, after the wash you dont see the part you messed up any more Very Happy

Picture time, they're done. I only did a small highlight on the face and painted some eyes.






At the boringMeeting Alwin played with my elevs and did great! Altough it could also be Matt's inabilaty to pass a leadership test that the elves did so great Wink

Well, I can't see the pics, but as I still remember them, I will comment anyway Wink

For a warband painted in a day, they look really cool, but I have to admit that washed stuff looks a little better on pictures than they actually do.

However, washed models can also be used as a base for further highlights, so it's quite a good method to field a warband nicely painted in no time, with the possibility to paint it to a great standard later.

Well, done, anyways. Though I will never forgive Alwin and you bashing Matt and me up and then not even playing in the campaign anymore!!! Suspect

It was a great game, though. Wink

@Melvin: You might get to smash my Witch Hunters if you're lucky, and we both know the dice gods hate you with a vengeance clown

And ontopic: it seems a bit self-centered of me to praise the Witch Hunters (however awesome, great, fantastic and surely invincible) and not devote words to the Druchii, who are the main subject here. They look superb. I like the look of all of them, except for the sorceress, who should be burned of course.
