Hi there!

Heres some pictures of the first minis of my undead warband!
I'm totally open to opinions, and one in particular: does the vampire - the grey blue thing below - looks like a Strygoi? I'm quite unsure of this mini, but i spent a lot of time on it and.. Bref! Suspect

I gotta say, I LOVE the new Ghoul models, and you certainly give them justice. Great paint-job, and cool vampire. What model is the vampire BTW?

Hehe, thanks a lot!

The vampire is made with some GW plastic pieces. Legs and chest are from a Kroot Warrior, arms form a Gor Beastmen and the blade from th new skeletons. The head is an Ungor Beastmen, and the stuff on his back is from the kroot sprue. I made some parts in greenstuff like the ring, the gem on the blade, the piece of textil between his legs - don't know the name, "tabard" ? - the chains the teeth the nose and so Rolling Eyes

First off, Great photo's high quality images always do mini's justice.

Second, great conversion work, I would have never thought to mix Beastmen and kroot for such a vicious looking vampire. Great Painting, great basing. Its a quality mini.

Great job, and keep em coming. Can't wait to see the whole warband done.

LOVE the Strigoi Vampire...COOL & CREATIVE conversion idea. The GW Crypt Ghouls are among the nicest of their new plastic, AND you did a FINE job with the painting & basing. You could do your Dregs with a Gypsy feel to fit in with the Vampire. Keep up the GOOD WORK; I'm looking forward to seeing how this develops.

Man, your amazing

My first impession was that this was a COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE model.

Kudos for you GREAT WORK!

And you painting and photographic skill are very very good too!

Waiting to see some more.

Best wishes.

The vampire model is awesome! But it does not look as a vampire to me Very Happy I mean, not an archetypical one.

Dude thanks a lot far all those positive comments!! That really motivates!
For the pictures, i have a small cold light lamp, i take a white sheet with my mini on it, put this under the lamp, and take the picture with a good macro in my room, with no other lights Surprised

Yes, the vampire don't look like Bela Lugosi! But is it this far from a vampire? I'm thinking of doing another eventually..

I'm thinking about the dregs, my challenge is, as possible, to make all the band without having to buy anything. I have a huge mountain of lost/forgotten/unfinished minis, and try to do with.. And i see those dregs more like crazy human beeing, or kind of "elephant man" turned mad cause of "normal" men persecution.

I'm wrtitting slowly a piece of fluff explaining why this vampire in this city with this strange fools, including an asylum like in Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula bounce

Thanks again for your comments!
See you!

Nico

No, it's great! Who are we to tell you what a vampire looks like anyway - have any of us ever met one?!

...okay I've a feeling I might regret asking that question...

I do think it looks like the typical vampire though, as most "humane" looking vampires has changed their appearence, as in Bram Stokers Dracula. When Dracula (played by Gary Oldman) changes into his other forms, a wolf (who looks like the trolls from Willow, shit-scary, in other words) mist (*cough, cough*) and monstrous vampire form (looks like a Strigoi mated a Nechrarch). As those vamps are by far cooler and a lot more dangerous than your arrogant aristocracy vampire, I think you are spot on, mate! Smile

Here's the wip of my necromancer, still don't know what to do with his left hand.. Maybe a Ghoul's one with the stone painted like wyrdstone.
Comments wellcome!

EXCELLENT LOOKING Necromancer; he's got a Liche-like appearance...VERY SPOOKY Dude. The bone across his chest looks like it could be a spare part in case something falls off. One of the Ghoul hands with a shard would work OR maybe one of the open Zombie hands with a magical effect of your choice. Keep up the FINE WORK...I need something to make getting up in the morning worthwhile.

Wow another brilliant conversion! Can't wait to see it painted.

One little question: what is the horizontal plastic thingy on his chest just above the greenstuffed belt? A bone?

I think this is the ultimate model with some light effects on his face... Maybe you could go for a hand that glows red (it could be he's preparing the lifestealing spell?) and try some lighting effect on his body and face?

Outstanding work.

The Vamp is just amazing. Looks like a semi-feral Strigoi, and that Necro shows so much promise!
