"Have you heard about folketsfiende?"
"Yeah, he's kind of flooding the forum now with bucketloads of pics of his silly minis and warbands."
"He's such a pest!"
"Oh, he's coming now, to post some more... Hi folketsfiende, what's that you got there?"
"My Araby Smugglers. Is this thread occupied?"
"Nono, you can take it, take all the space you need!"

"OK, here's a group shot.


The rais:


The merchant:


Ship mates:




Ship crew (these are the topless ones! - be warned!):




Janissaries:



Well, that's it! They are mostly Resina Planet minis, with the merchant and first ship mate from Warcrow, and the janissaries are Black Tree Design. What do you think?"
"Naked people. Really classy, folketsfiende, really classy."
"Wait, where are you going? They're not totally nude. Although some of the amazons I painted are. Well, at least I've got this thread to myself now."

Mixing minis from various & sundry mini makers seems to be your thing...AND you do it VERY WELL! You're also one of the more prolific painters on the Forum...AN EXCELLENT combination. GREAT STUFF...KEEP'EM COMING!'

Surely going topless would be more of an inconvenience, unless your enemies were VERY easily distracted.

Very nice models once again. I am currenently sitting with a tab open on your amazons to, I hope they aren't as great as the Arabians and Redemptionists lest you force me to post and I look like a stalker...although I think DeafNala shall take some of the flak for that...

Best intro to a thread ever. Coupled with a bunch of cool photos you get a thumbsup and a couple of these guys: bounce bounce bounce

Do you actually find the time to play with all these warbands?

Well, in the beginning I painted cause I wanted to play. As time went by I realized how fun painting is, so I started painting whatever I felt like, in the hope that I'd someday get the chance to try the minis on the battlefield. I haven't played the smugglers yet, I'm waiting for a friend to finish his buccaneers. The amazons I will play as soon as I've finished some jungle terrain (it's in the making, you'll see some pics soon).

Cool. Well, at least you always have a spare warband for other players to try out. And as this thread shows most of us have many warbands. That's what's so great about skirmish games - you don't have to commit to a huge single army but can try out a variety of small warbands instead. So keep the warbands and photos coming! Smile

Nice group of models. Now I'm thinking I should drag my Arabs back out of storage... So many pirates so little time.

I like how the Resnia Planet minis look with the other models. I looked at them last August and decided they were too big to use with 28s but maybe I was hasty.

Thanks for posting these!

About that... I almost never find the minis first, rather the warband itself. When I decide on a warband I go hunting for fitting minis, and if these come from different manufacturers, I just search the web for size comparisons (there are quite a few of those). Since there's an excellent Swedish games seller (www.gamemaniacs.se - sorry, they've only got information in Swedish) who sell stuff from lots of companies, it's quite easy to get hold of all these models... though expensive.

small story.

Hopefully not going offtopic too much:
I'm with you on this one. I always decide which warband to collect, then go look for the fitting models. Usually GW, some reaper and wargamesfactory lately.

Ontopic: Very well painted!

I work in the other direction I'll start out with either a cool mini(s) or a cool concept for a mini(s) & make a War Band with fluff from there...different strokes & all that.

These are SU-WEET. When /if I ever get a chance to update the Sartosa rules, would it be okay if I use pics from your warband?

great stuff, folkets fiende! the warband is a nice comlipation of minis and work very well togerther. warning wargamers that there might be toplessness in the thread is like warning kids the there will be icecream at the end of a meal. a cheap trick:)

the abs on the ships crew is something to aspire to, too. its always tough to give constructive critisism to somthing tha looks really nice but ill try. black lining with black ink/wash/diluted paint could make them "pop" even more. try it on somthing and i think youll love it! i sure do.

would you mind listing the manufacturers?

Very cool stuff all in all! I really like how you have chosen figures from different manufacturers and yet still been able to make them look like a one group with that similar colour scheme! Very nice indeed! That's something I'd love to achieve with my dwarves! Neutral
And yeah, I'd also love to know the manufacturers of these figures. Smile

Still have to agree with widgren on this one. Nothing wrong with your painting style as it's clean and crisp but still I believe you could improve with some black lining. Smile

Heh, working as teacher for about ten years has certainly taught me the tricks of the trade...

Though not a fan of blacklining, I always work from a black basecoat, and apply washes inbetween some of the paintlayers. Granted, I've become better at it after painting the smugglers, but I won't go back and fix them, since I'm too lazy.

Actually, there already is a list at the bottom of the first post. Check it out Sianpää and widgren, you lazy bums! BTW, will bring home a camera this weekend to take some pics of my latest efforts...

That would be more than okay, Styro! I really appreciate the Sartosa rules, they're inspiring and fun (I've actually bought some models for Cathayan pirates, but I've not started painting them yet...).

Oops. Embarassed My only defense is that I was drunk. drunken
Well, thanks for listing the manufacturers. Shame that those Resina planet figures are so big compared to older GW stuff as some of their models look very nice.

I used Vallejo Model Colors, and a black gesso basecoat. First one layer of Yellow ochre, then a generous drybrushing of green ochre, then a redbrownish wash (I've forgotten what color it was), then lastly a gentle drybrushing of a 1/1 mix of green ochre and basic skin tone.
