While I wait for my magnets to arrive so that I can make the heads and arms modular, I am converting my Magister and Possessed.

My Magister



He is pretty much done except or a magnet arm and some clean up around his neck. Why is he so dashingly handsome rather than malformed and hunched? Well I figure as a cult leader he has great charisma.

The Possessed

I am going with a different look for my possessed inspired by deamonhosts in the warhammer 40k universe. I think the official models are a little cartoonish (no offense) and the new spawn are too beastly. He will be floating off the ground dragging huge flails grafted to his arms to represent his great claw, or whatever other mutations I decide to use.

Wow! these are awesome! Great work, and I love your fluff/thoughts.

I don't think I've seen magnets used on Mordheim miniatures, before. Do you have a plan for how you are going to do it? I think it's a great idea. Esp if you restart warbands a lot.

Keep the pics coming Wink

The idea of magnet arms with different weapons is amazing! Man, this would be so cool. If anyone finds appropriate magnets please let me know!! I this used be quite possible with plastic models.

I have never tried the magnets but I figure it will be great for upgrading weapons (giving my mutants swords rather than clubs) and replacing brethren when they die with new weapon combos.

I ordered from amazingmagnets.com, 1/16" and 1/8" diameter discs, 100 each!

Now I need to get back to my possessed...

Awesome. I've been very curious about these. You'll have to do a full product review post to give us the low down on them Wink

I have yesterday's converting to update you guys on. I mainly focused on how the hell I was going to achieve the floating possessed, and I think despite the thickness of the chains I was able to get them to bundle and appear to hang well enough.


Looks like the flash went off for this photo and I didn't notice at the time, excuse the shiny. If you can't tell the difference, I added the left (his) shoulder collar and pendent. Right now he looks like he is directing traffic, but hopefully when I paint his palm red it will look like he is casting a spell.

Last we have a Beastman, you can barely see where I fixed the hair. If you have ever put these models together you know how one must definitely use putty to fix up the horn gap.

Yes he would easily double as a deamonhost, basically the same thing and the source of my original inspiration! No permission needed. He walks most of the time, I imagine. With base he is 2 and 1/8th inches so 2" ceilings will be trouble!

Today I have hit a converting snag, I require a smaller drill to continue my magister and mutant arms, but the possessed himself is basically done except for a base. I had to sculpt a few chain links, nothing worth taking a picture of. I might give him base feet, if any of my models should have them it'd be him.

I am stuck on a paint scheme. I don't want to evoke any particular chaos god so putrid green, pink, blue and blood red are out. White/tan robes are too monastic, so I'll use gray/black browns. There are 3 basic cloth areas on each flagellant brethren body, so I can use 3 base colors shuffled around for variety. Narrowed it down to these options:

Gray, dark brown, and dark crimson
Back, light brown, deep purple
Back, light brown, midnight blue

More flamboyant you say?
How about ruby red robes with yellow sunbursts like the cultists in TES4:Oblivion?

Painting starts in force tomorrow...

Magister can be flamboyant.

The others I would go with option two.

Why not use all of the options?
It might look quite nice if you have some variation in the warband.

I would definitly add some chaos black to the "richer" colours of the robes(the dark crimson, purple...) to give them a dirty and worn look.

HUGE UPDATE TIME!

My magnets finally arrived, so I have been spending my time drilling, scraping and gluing. The small magnets I used for heads are a perfect fit, but the hardest part is widening the hole for the 1/8" from the 1/32 size drill bit I have. Sometimes on the bare arms i poke through the shoulder, so I'll have to fill the gaps later.

I am really pleased with the results, this is the best investment I have ever made for my gaming. There are enough arms in the flagellant set to have any weapon combo I want. The only downside is that I must paint all the sleeves the same color as well as the adjoining robes.










I am hiring a Marksmen, but rather being from Tilea, he is a former resident of Mordheim who fled the comet and lived off the land for years. Hunting for survival has made him an excellent shot and now he has returned to claim his birthright. Little does he know the green rock he found in the countryside which he uses as a good luck charm has actually corrupted his soul... I will magnetize the weapons simply b/c I can, and I like the original model a lot.


Here is a head shot (ha):


What I love the most is that I can replace losses with new heads! Here is a pile of heads from the flagellants and bretonian bowmen. These two sets have the perfect selection of ugly bastards for my heartless band of killers!

This is so fucking brilliant! You, my good Sir, hereby get the Tabletop Nobel price for Innovation from me.

*HUGE ROUND OF APPLAUSE*

Congrats for that and thanks for showing me incredible new possibilities for tabletop miniatures I am definately going to explore in the semi-near future. Oh, and this thread is claimed for an upcoming issue of Cianty's Heresy for the Letters of the Damned (like a few others on this board).

Ow shucks it weren't nothin' People have been doing this magnet thing with Space Marines for years.

I have yet to check out Letters of the Damned, I need to get on that pronto!

Cainty if you would like I can write an article in word format with these pictures, either after or instead of what you plan to do. I will even make a step-by-step guide to installing the magnets with pretty pictures. Give me a time frame to work with and If I have a week or so I can do a painting guide as well.

Updates on the painting should drop on Thursday...

I'd love to read a "how to" about the magnet thingy. If you like you can write it and send it to the LoD editor yourself rather than being just one of numerous features of a Heresy. Your choice really..

(So that's what I get for not caring for Warhammer 40k oh well...)

I started painting and stopped middle of last week. I didn't like how slow it was taking or the results I got. So here are some pictures, you'll see what I mean...

I first painted the beastman. He turned our better than I could have hoped, and I am very pleased with the tan, blue/grey color scheme. there are six shades of brown on this model! At first I did not like the way the loincloth turned out b/c it looks pink, but then i realized it looked like human skin!Twisted Evil



Next is the only other complete model. Everything i said about dark colors I apparently threw out the window, and while he looks nice, I don't like the skin. It is mixed through Beasty brown/tanned flesh/dwarf flesh/bleached bone. I then drybrushed it rotten flesh and ruined it! I think I'm using too many colors...


the shield looks a lot better in person.


So I decided to cut down on the amount of skin tones i used and my next few are experiments. This guy has his chest done just like the first mutant, only I stopped after the tanned flesh. His face on the other hand is beasty brown/tanned flesh/rotten flesh which I like a lot more.


Next is the same method on the chest and that bad drybrush of rotting flesh (i did them all at once) with an unfinished head and a crap arm. I tried to drybrush the whole arm grey/flesh/bone but it looks horrible!
\

I finally mastered a blue that was dark and rich enough on my Magister, but his skin is basic beasty though bone like the original skin seen on everyone's chest, minus that infamous drybrushing. Oh well, back to the mixing pallet! I need to repaint a lot, I need to try to get all the skin tones the same so arm swapping is no issue...

I think they do look very good! I particularly like the Gor (maybe because I'm a huge beastman fan).
May I ask for one thing: Since your models can have their arms in different positions due to the magnets, could you take some more shots of the Gor with only his arms being different, ie. the left one a little lower here and the other a lifted a little more up. You know, to show how flexible they are. Do you have different arms for the Gor already? I'd really love to see a photos series of one model with different arms atached and diferent positions. That would be really cool.
