Really great conversions all!

I would advise you to pay some attention to your bases though, as they claim a lot of attention, make sure they don't all look the same. There are a lot of bases where the wood is aligned with the base, which is easily thought of as being the same and somewhat "boring" (-this would be the right forum for that though Razz) the bases where you put the wood on diagonally are much more interesting, and variations to that them would make your band stand out even more! Smile keep it up, for it looks promising.

Awsome advice Ezekiel! I have ben a bit lazy on most of the bases and thats not good at all since the base of a moddel helps telling a storry of what and where the moddel is.... or sometin like that
Thanks!

Update!
Hello everyone! I havent hade any time for my warband the last days( ) I do have a smal problem tho conserning my Boss and I whas hoping yall could give me some ideas and tips!
Hers a pic!


The conversion so far is Grimgor Ironhides head and Axe(obviusly ) on the Borgut Facebeater body! Imo a colection of awsome bits that work great together both in scale and armour. I havent done any hardcoer conversion work on it (yet)... the arm is just cut of from the body to make good space for the grimgor axe and it gave me a sweet dynamic pose right of the bat!

Now for my question, maby its to obvious ... WHAT DO I DO WITH THE RIGHT ARM!? He dosnt have anything els in wargear terms that needs to go on him...
Iv got 3 suggestions:

1. Trophy. A trophy of some sort that he holds high in the air on display (Maby to much like the original Grimgor mini...?)
2. The arm dose ofc not need to be in its current state... I could cut it of and do something els also to gain a different pose (ideas?)
3. Your own suggestion

Pleas let me hear your thoughts! I cant make up my mind
Take care!
Sorry for bad spelling btw

VERY COOL! That's a GREAT pose, especially without the Knight's head held aloft. If you have a Night Goblin Archer's arm with the two fingers extended, you could cut & reglue the index finger to the fist to have him gesturing to his opponent(s)...seems appropriate.

Update!
Im painting kinda slowly but just to get an idea of how the gang is going to turn out i desided to finish a Big 'Un first instead of doing them all at the same time like a regiment.
He is stil WIP.. I havent finished hes clothes or the base yet!

I borowed some mithrillsilver from Cavonious and I may have over did it a bit...





So, what'cha think?

What do I think? I think I love it!


Very nice muted skin-tone. Lovely chipped and scratched armour. Great points of emphasis (the pink tongue!)
Can't wait to see more!

LOVE IT! VERY nice, subdued skin coloration AND the metalwork looks GREAT! While group painting is a fine way to knock out regiments for larger games, painting the Lads in smaller groups or individually will yield a greater degree of personality...in Mordheim personality is where it's at. Keep up the FINE WORK!

Update!

Hey party ppl. The campaign starts next week so Im hard at work! Painting is in good proggres so I hope to post som pics soon. But for now Iv taken som pics of my WIP new boss, ogre boddyguard and the second arrerboy.

Firstup is the ogre! He hase two converted swords, the one in the right hand is made out of plastic card and the second is just two choppas put together. Ofc he has a cow on his back, you never know when you can get hungry! And a poor gretchin got in his way and is squashed on the base ah and a head i on the way....



Couldnt get a good photo of the plastic card sword



Second up is the "facepalm" arrer boy. Hes standing in the back shooting at the enemy whil he ses the warband squable all the time.(they cant get along )



And last I whant to show yall my proggress on the new BOSS! I did not like the last one so I made a new one and hes almost done.
I kinda dont know what to do with his right hand atm.. Im thinkin of putting on a badass knife I have laying arund.



Hes big and mean

Yes I made my own crossbow... The standard one is to small! Its made outof a gobblin bow and some plastic card all triggerd and ready!


Thats all for now!
PEACE

The Lads just keep getting better & BETTER with each new batch. ONLY an Ogre would think of looting a cow...at least in Mordheim. I LOVE the archer...maybe you could stick a couple of arrows in the other Lads to suggest the his marksmanship. The new Boss ROCKS; all the paraphenalia he's toting around makes the mini. Keep up the FINE WORK!
