Yeah, that was like one year ago or so. Good to hear things have changed. Post some battle reports if you get around to!

These new models look very promising. I would have loved to play against this warband. Can't wait to see them finished! bounce

The little archer on the right of the first picture of the figs you are working on is one I just painted last week - he's a cabin boy in warband I have just started - name of "Jam Pot".

Hey,
thanks for the nice comments.

@Paluke: Well, I have worked with Green Stuff before. Sculpting an arm, a leg or a face, but never a whole mini.

@cianty: And I would have loved to play on your mordheim table.Very Happy

@mweaver: Very Happy JamPot is a good name for a halfling. I have to think about some names for mine too.

A little update:

Another excellent addition to your warband.

It is important for your Halflings to remember, a bow and arrow is not a toy...

Hey,
I made a new elder. The new one looks a bit more adventurous(hmm a adventurous halfling- kinda controversial). I'm doin a Lustria table right now, thats why I chose this naval theme for him.
I'm still not sure how I should paint him.
Like all white and black hat with yellow stripes? I know for sure that he is getting red hair and sideburns.
This thing around his neck is supposed to be a napkin.
Sorry for the bad photo quality.
There he is:

Hahaha, I really love the new guy! I think he's perfect. Since he has the whole naval look going, you could do more traditional colors on him, like a red or blue coat with white shirt and pants, black hat, and gold trim.

VERY COOL! I LOVE the fore & aft hat...sort of a short, chubby Horatio Hornblower effect. AND the archer turned out TERRIFIC! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Hey,
I started painting my halfling admiral. I decided to go with the white uniform. Looks pretty pimp on the little guy Cool

He is still very WIP.

Not only do you paint wonderfull, but you have obviously got a tremendous sense of modelling! This is truly stunning once more! I like the white uniform, it really suits the halfling better then I expected.

Are you going to add more colours, like you did on the thief (with the pipe, from your avatar)? I think this will mix extremely well with some medium green.

Hey,
thanks for the comments.

@vampirekhaine: Yep, I gonna add more colors. But this will be just a few parts on the model, like the stripes at the bicorne, sleeve and epaulettes. These parts will be painted yellow. The band around the bow would look nice in purple I think or maybe green.

One question:
Where can I get some pig models for the warband? I mean real pigs( domestic pig) no boars like the one s on the gw website. That would add a lot of character to my warband.

Thanks in advance

Well you could get these little Porkers fro Wyrd http://wyrd-games.net/shop/product.php?productid=16248&cat=262&page=1 :






I think Mega Minis Dungeon Decor also has some piggies. You can check for them at www.thewarstore.com .

And Preiser has a range of O scale farm animals (plastic) available from Walthers http://www.walthers.com/exec/search?quick=preiser&start=1470 that would work nicely. You can get these from/through a goor model railroad shop.

Wyrd's 32mm is roughly the same as GW's 28mm. With the human types, Wyrd's stuff is ever so slightly taller & somewhat leaner.

Pegasus used to make a set of plastic farm animals that included some plastic pigs. Didn't see them on their site just now when I looked, though.

EDIT: here they are. 1/72, but might work. We have them around here somewhere, and as I recall they are workable with 28mm figures, just not as huge porkers.

This is a really great warband cal, well done!  The warrior cooks are particularly nice poses, and look great. Very nice putty work on that admiral too!... the bicorne is a great look. =)

Foundry does some:



Also Kallistra has a unit of Pygmy cavalry on pigs ( ). Maybe you could find another use for the riders (with your skills im sure you could convert them to halflings!).

Wish I could do that Smile
