PostSubject: Seeking Barbarian Swordsmen   Sat 2 Jan 2010 - 18:51

Hi folks! I need some help from all the mini's gurus here. I'm working on a middenheim warband using a lot of barbarian models from Reaper. The only problem is I need swordsmen. Specifically, barbarian looking figures wielding two swords, so that I can field my dual sword henchmen. Does anyone know a company that has something like that? I'm not much on converting, if I can avoid it. Thanks folks!!

How many you looking for?

You said you were using Reaper? I went and did a search for "barbarian sword" and found these:

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/barbarian%20sword/sku-down/14288

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/barbarian%20sword/sku-down/02798

Saw quite a few in there that would be super-easy conversions (swapping a weapon out)

If you can broaden your choice of models, the Chaos Marauder multipart plastic kit for Warhammer Fantasy is a great kit if you want to make barbarians. Dunno if that many swords are included, but with a little tweaking (adding blades and filing away the chaos marks) they look DARN good Smile

My Avatar is actually used as a Hero in a Barbarian Warband (as middenheimers), and is a chaos warrior body with Marauder head and other marauder parts added to it.

If you decide that awesome miniatures trumps your desire to avoid conversionwork to give 'em swords, the Red Box Games Njorns and Helsvakt are some of the best barbarian minis I know of. Plus, the Red Box guy does work for Reaper as well, so chances are good they'll fit in with what you already have perfectly.

Sartori: Thanks! I've actually ordered a lot of those models already, they fit perfectly. I'm looking for 5 twin-sword models, as that's the number of swordsmen (or women) that I'll have eventually.

Opheliate: I hadn't thought of Marauders... I have plenty of bits in my box to make them work. I'll check em out!

FKSN: Those models really are awesome. not quite what I want in this case, but really nice.

I love the marauders box set for sure. There are some swords in there, but it's a very mixed bag of weaps.

Those Red Box minis look amazing! Are they 28mm?

Sartori - The bases you see 'em on are the same as warmachine, dark age etc. come on. So they'll look big on 20mm squares, but that could work for barbarians.

Maybe, maybe not, as GW models seem to be on the 32mm size nowadays.

What's up with that crazy scale creep?

I really can't undestand it .

o ok, well they are just smaller than GW, i never understand scales!

they work for my warband (ive just created), no one noticed that they were smaller, till i pointed it out!


i do know that GW make the head's out of scale (larger), cos they had to make the LOTR a different model size, so that the two systems could not be used together, (copy right or sumthin)

The scale creep is because of the infamous "heroic scale" to make the heroes stand out
in the field although the zombies have been 30mm since the dawn of time (or the plastic box at least.)

didn't the perry bros. own company make a britbox for their roman line
(or a company making 28mm...nevermind I found it Razz)
can't find them now but they were sold on warlord...
There! (They've got mastiffs!!)


heres the perry one
