Can anyone tell me of a good source for bits and accessories you can add to your minis (like backpacks, bedrolls, mining picks, rope & hook, etc). Do most of you that add these items use greenstuff or is there an easier way to go about it?

I usually use gear I get from various sprues or buy special items in one of the various bits stores (you can check them out in the sticky topic of the same name in the Trading Pit section).

The extra bits you get with various boxsets are best Dwarf miners and brettonian men at arms would give you all those.

and there's always

Yep, love that sprue. Guess I can greenstuff bedrolls, and other things like larger pouches or sacks.

Reaper minis has some great blister packs of nothing but gear; weapons, helmets, shields, and adventuring acessories galore. I'd recommend you check with them, if you don't mind non-GW stuff.

The new empire kits come with great stuff as well (new archers/outriders/state troops) but then you'd be stuck with all human gear/models - but I just bought all of those boxes, and made a fine looking warband out of it Very Happy

A lot of it has to be green stuff. Although you can pick-up quite a few things off of Ebay. There are sellers that sell individual bits that you can use.

I just bought a few bows & quivers so that I could mod my skinks to have bows. I also picked-up swords, daggers, and a lot of other random bits that I think will give me fun moding oppertunities.

The other thing that is nice about buying random swords, bows, and daggers is that they look different, so you get more the individual looking models, and your warband has a more rag-tag feel due to their mix and match weapons.

For example I have some skinks with Goblin Bows, others with Undead Bows. So you can imagine a cool back story of them fighting some goblins, and undead, killing them and taking their stuff, or them buying them off of different traders that had different items to sell at different times.

That is one of the cool things about buying different models is that you can mix and match to give different feels to your guys. Also in a setting like Mordheim you can logically have a wide range of weapon styles in a single warband, because when you went to the market you ran into the different weapon sellers with different styles of weapons for sale, but they are functionally the same weapon.

The empire flagellants kit has a ton of very Mordheim-appropriate bitz, like keys, an hourglass, and such. Plus a ton of different heads if you're going for a more insane-looking warband. Oh, and lots of scrolls.

As far as the rest of the kits, they're not bad, though the greatswords one is waaaaaay overpriced (didn't stop me from buying two of 'em...). The outriders/Pistoliers set has some bedrolls, bottles, and other good stuff, and a few pouches (I think, it's been a while since I went through my bitz-box).

As far as non-GW goes, there's a Hordes box called trollkin champions or somesuch, which has some cool little kegs that are small enough to hang froms belts; perfect for dwarf warbands... or any other alcoholic group. In fact, the Privateer kits have a lot of good bitz (like a necklace of skulls from one of the Khador models) that would look great on Mordheim bands.

Really, any company that puts out miniatures will have some bitz you can use, and most sell the bitz seperate. My small group does this; we allow any models that are thematically appropriate (fantasy yes, space marines no).

Hope that helps.

Crap, almost forgot, to add a little bit extra to Possessed, Undead, and Greenskin models, the Kroot kit has some chunks of meat on hooks, which looks suspiciously like a human thigh...

Tamiya makes a kit full of rucksacks, bell rolls, tarps, and sacks. It's WWII stuff but you'd never know it. I can't find a link but I found some of the items in use on this model. It's a cheap kit with more stuff than you'll ever need.

These look quite nice (and cheap!) too.
