So, here we have my WIP Kislevite Warband; they are mainly built out of Empire Archers and Militia models, with a hefty amount of greenstuff applied. Feel free to comment in any way you like ^_^.


Warriors w. bow


Warriors w. spear (and eventually shields)


Warriors w. crossbow

Streltsi w. handgun & halberd


Charging Cossack...


...and Defensive Cossack, each with axe and sword.


Youth w. sword & dagger


Youth with club & pistol


My Esaul w. bow.


My trained bear – the little guy is for reference, and I need to get through that thick lump of dwarf on top of the bear (which is a reaper mini). I have yet no model for the trainer though – need some marauder piece I think.


My Druzhina – converted from an Engineer with some Milita and Hand Gunner command group bits. Still needs some work on the back (a nice fur cloak) and with his arm. This picture inspired me a lot:


So I guess that's it. I still have some modeling work to do, then on to painting of course, I'm thinking a white/scarlet/light blue/gray color scheme. How about it?

They look really cool! I think you did a great job of making standard Empire troops look more like Kislevites. My only complaint is that some of the pictures aren't that well lit, so the sculpting detail doesn't show. Still they look good, and the druzhina is a really cool conversion!

Pretty nice. Remove those pesky mold lines on some of those before proceeding any further

VERY NICE STUFF! Looks like someone shot the bird your Esaul is sporting on his arm. I LOVE the baggy Cossack style pantaloons...VERY Kislev chic!
Before you go hacking away on the Dwarf, you MIGHT consider this Reaper mini. It WOULD save you some time, reduce blood loss, AND spare those around you from the inevitable string of truly VILE profanity necessary to the task:

I WILL! ^_^

DefNala:
I've seen that mini before, and I must say I prefere the pose and expression on my current bear, also being a student I really can't afford the luxury of yet ANOTHER bear. When I get that dwarf of I also get a fine Hired Sword (with some convertion of course)

Yeah, I'm sorry for the pictures, I went for quantity and time rather than Quality... my appartment is hardly a studio ^_^

Very nice work! I must say that you are catching the Polish, and Russian, feel that the Kislevites have. I especially like the mace that you made from the pistol handle for one of the youths, consider it stolen Good boy .

Good work and keep on posting!!!

O thanks, that was really a wierd improv. It's funny though, that he carries one of those pistols as well, giving them a match.


By the way, the schimitars are made of the hilts from the Empire Archers, and the blade from the LOTR high elves! I like there slender look... not to keen with all the oversized weapons in Warhammer.

Those baggy Cossack trousers are spot on. Nice work.

That Empire engineer makes a great Kislevite too. I love his new sword-drawing pose. A great replacement for his previous telescope.

Quite impresive! Smile

One notice: Call the leader "Captain" not "Druzhina" - druzhina means the same as warband/team/group.

This "mace" called in Polish "buzdygan" is in fact sign of a high rank, so it will be perfect as a secondary weapon (after sword of course) for captain!

Thanks for the enlightenment! Funny that they make a reference to that word only in the captains name – no where else.

You are right with Druzhina, but the proper term should be "Druzhinik".

I can't speak Russian, Czech, Slovakian....only Polish Smile I suppose that something like druzhina appears in all Slavic languages. It's incorrect in Polish (and every other language I think) but VERY close to the oryginal!
I'm quite happy that author of the Kislevites warband have used some names from our languages: druzhina and strielcy. In Polish it would be Druzynnik (and with a dot above "z") and Strzelcy. How it would be in Czech?

Thank you, I'm kind of liking it myself ^_^

Oh, has anyone any Idea for what to put on my Bear tamer?
I was thinking a Spear, it fits quite well with the fluff... or a club perhaps. I don't know if a spear would be bad in terms of play, he has a strength 4 to start with. We will probably restrict dual wield as well somehow. Any suggestions?

Strzelcy means Shooters Sir, yes sir!


I would go for Spear, think it would look great and work wonders gamewise.

Very resourceful! I love those Lord of the Rings elven swordsmen, but I never would have thought to use their weapons as scimitars for Warhammer. They turned out well! I'm also not real big on some of the oversized weapons.

No, big weapons just feel clumsy, and now that GW have become really good at making thin plastic pieces I hope for more slender armory ^_^
